The Abernathy was a great location for the Golden Tiger Reunion. The room was sleek, clean and large. The bed, pillows and linens were excellent. Robes were comfy and appreciated. Morning service in the cafe was slow. Would gladly return.

Most people who are not dog owners would probably shy away. No fear. This hotel is super clean and conveniently located. Across the street from Clemson and maybe a ten-minute drive to the lake. Absolutely knowledgable staff, friendly and caring. I will stay there again! Thank
