Upon arrival we immediately noticed how neat and clean it was and the classical music playing was very relaxing. The ladies at the front desk were incredibly welcoming and very helpful. They were very understanding of our problems...

Recently stayed there for my son's orientation at Clemson University. The staff were very friendly, and were able to accommodate my request for a better view - of the lake.

Stayed two nights during college orientation. Our room was nicely remodeled, clean and very comfortable. Beautiful location right on the lake and next to the golf course. The breakfast buffet and restaurant were respectable, but not fantastic. Overall, Inhighly recommend and will definitely be coming back again.
