Couldn't have been better. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. We were there for a concert, so the location was good. Breakfast was first rate, and had everything you could want. Just a very satisfying stay.

The accommodations were booked for my 95-yr old mother. The "queen" was pleased with the size and cleanliness of the room and the amenities provided. She also was happy with the items offered at the breakfast buffet. We were delighted with the staff's concern for her wellbeing.

1st time at this hotel and having stayed at previous Hampton Inn's, this was not like the others. Room was outdated and small. The beds were even smaller, like double size beds. The train whizzing by at 4am didn't help the sleep quality either. Overall property was clean and its in a nice location close to Clemson. Staff was also...

Dear Daniel N, Thank you for your review regarding our hotel. I am sorry that you found the rooms small and outdated. They are in fact average hotel room size and were just renovated with new carpet, paint, beds, mattresses, some room furniture, new linen and some bathroom features. Thank you for your nice words regarding the staff and location....

Even with extremely late arrival, check-in was very kind, courteous & efficient. Rooms are clean, large & the hotel is well situated in Clemson. Breakfast is very good with fresh fruit, cereals, oatmeal, waffles, etc. Will definitely stay again.

Mirror in the bathroom is VERY well lit. Room was great. Hotel was wrapping up renovations. Looks really nice. About a mile and a half from the strip. Would stay here again for sure. Beds/pillows are very comfortable. Tons of plugs to charge phones. Great wifi.

This location is great for anyone going to a Clemson game. It is just 5 minutes from the school. It is right across the road from the lake, which was a nice view from our room. It is only about 30 minutes from Greeneville, and we found shopping and restaurants fairly close. The hotel is very consistent with all other...

Dear carrielane, We appreciate the "shout outs" regarding our hotel!!! Thank you for taking the time to let other people know what is going on!!! You can have a lake view (not fully as a condo building is in the way) and it is close to Clemson and we try very hard to deliver an awesome experience for our guests....

I had read many of the reviews before booking this hotel. We were not disappointed. The front desk staff were very professional and friendly and the room was pristine. Our breakfast was a perfect start before our campus tour. If we end up with a son at Clemson we will definitely be staying at the Hampton Inn more.

My son works at the Clemson college in South Carolina. This was our first trip to spend any time in Clemson. Our hotel had a beautiful view of the lake and beautiful trees. It is located out on Tiger Bolivard, restaurants were close by and we were very pleased with the service at the Hampton Inn. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed at Hampton Inn night before our son's college tour of Clemson. Hotel was very convenient to college. Hotel was clean, as was our room. Check in easy, very helpful front desk. Was giving several dinner recommendations. Used fitness center, small but had everything I was looking for. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay there again if in area.
