The hotel was very clean. The front desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. The blue lights that was shining on the front of the hotel was a nice touch. The breakfast was great and included in the price. .........

I stayed here for one night during the week while visiting my daughter at CU. The room was clean & nicely decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in at a hotel. Free breakfast was also great - eggs, bacon, ham plus the usual continental items. I will definitely stay here again!

First time staying in this hotel for a single overnight stay while visiting my daughter at college. It was a big football weekend so a lot of out of towners (like us) but the hotel checked us in quickly and it was pretty quiet once in the room.The room was a good size and clean with the bathroom large as well.

I checked out the internet (wifi) which was pretty slow and stability intermittent in the evening we checked in but worked well the following morning. Breakfast was standard though the warm cinnamon rolls were very tasty.

Only downside I noticed was that there seems to be a single elevator and it's pretty slow especially during busier times such as breakfast/checkout in the morning. Other then that it is a very comparable alternative to the nearby Hampton Inn.

While we arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning, my daughter & I were pleasantly surprised by the general condition of the hotel.
The hotel appeared to be pretty new and in very good shape. Check in was quick and efficient, room was clean and functional. The breakfast good as well. Loved the warm cinnamon rolls.
hmmmm......I had never seen an automated pancake machine before. kind of cool!
If my daughter decides to attend Clemson, I would stay here again.

We finally had a nice stay in a hotel in Clemson, SC that I did not feel the need to "Lysol" before we entered. The room was clean with new furnishings, the breakfast was good, the indoor pool was heated, the staff was friendly, the cleaning ladies really scrubbed the rooms and elevators, and we will stay here again. The only cons were that the beds were not really comfy, and the $300+ per night price tag for a home football game.

I stay at a ton of HI Express hotels on my travels and can easily say this is one of top ones in the chain in the entire United States! It's a new hotel only open about 3 years with very modern decor, exceptionally clean, super friendly staff and overall the kind of hotel I wish I could have stayed longer at. So close to Clemson University if you are visiting there, but even if you aren't, seriously go out of your way to stay here - it's worth it. When I first arrived, in the dark one evening, I was worried about railroad tracks because they pass behind several hotels down the street. However they are nowhere near this property and it is set back off the main road so it's very quiet and relaxing.
