We held our 81st Grant-Johnson reunion at this location and the grounds are beautiful. The service was very accommodating and efficient as well as super friendly. With it being on the grounds of a University, I never would have expected this setting. I definitely plan to visit and stay there again because it was so pretty.

We came to Clemson to visit the university. We wanted to try this place b/c of its affiliation with the school. They just went through a remodel about 6-12 months ago. Everything is crisp, beautifully decorated and just enough Clemson décor to make you feel the connection. The grounds are beautifully manicured. The hotel sits on a very large lake--also... More

Thank you for your review! We love to hear that our guests enjoyed all aspects of the property. We lucky enough to be nestled on the shores of Hartwell Lake -- 1,000 miles of shore line extending in to GA!

This is my second stay at this hotel. It is nice. Clean. Comfortable. I enjoyed both stays and if I were to return to Clemson for work in the future I would chose to stay here again. I can't speak to the price as we get a corporate rate but it is every bit as nice as most of the... More

Thank you for the kind review. We hope that you will return to Clemson and stay with us again. If you do return to Clemson, request a quite room and we will do our best to find a room away from other guests.

It's a perfectly nice and totally undistinguished place, where you get breakfast at a Starbucks outlet. The hotel has long, long corridors, the free WiFi is erratic, but it also provides excellent parking! And people are very friendly.

We stayed here for one night, but wish we would have stayed for two. Superior room in every way, including comfort, quality, and cleanliness. Friendly and accommodating staff. It will be nice to have the restaurant open in the spring. I highly recommend!

This is the second or third time we have stayed here while in Clemson for a Football game. Since our last stay...the rooms have been renovated. They were always nice but now even better.

The room was very clean. We enjoyed a nice view of the lake from the room. The breakfast offered was a little above average. The view from the dining area is great - the lake and golf course. There were nice walking and seating areas outside but unfortunately it was too hot when we stayed to take advantage of them.... More

We had tickets to a Clemson game and decided to stay on campus. The location is great. We were able to walk to the tailgate and stadium. The hotel offers a shuttle but it didn't leave until 11:00 for a 12:30 game. We asked if it could leave earlier for tailgaters or just to see the Tiger Walk (team walking... More
