I was on a college tour in Clemson with my daughter and her friend. I wanted to find a hotel that had a separate bedroom and living room suite style that was not to expensive. I came across Country Inn and Suites which I had never stayed or even heard of prior. I found it to be extremely affordable with...

The hotel was sold out so we were fortunate to get a room. In spite of a full hotel, it was quiet and there was plenty of food at breakfast. The room was large and the bathroom was nice and even had an exhaust fan.

Excellent service a nd will always look for a Country Inn when traveling to our second home up north. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and would do anything requested. Daughter stayed in another room that had hot wateer problems and they deducted $30 from the costt of her 2 day stay.

I booked three rooms over three days, laid out over a thousand dollars, we had no hot water none of the evenings, no hot water for showers or the In room jacuzzi's I paid extra for, a broken hair dryer that took two plus days to finally get replaced which took all of 2 minutes. Management issued a laughable 10...

Why why why haven't these franchisees had to live up to Carlson standards. When was the last renovation? when was the last inspection? The beat up, stained furnishings are enough! Staying while traveling and this was another Carlson disappointment. The hotel is beat up, dirty, stained, and the staff, while friendly is disheveled...The property needs tlc. It is time!

The lobby is nice but the rooms are not. Dust and dirt behind beds, dust on headboard, and ripped chair. Front desk agent was nice. Breakfast not so good. Booked another hotel on our way back through.

Great location however the halls did not have a pleasant smell. The rooms were decent. Besides the smell in the hallway, the stay was okay. The hotel is closed to a few takeout restaurants and department stores.

Ok....so I understand there are people out there who expect a certain LOOK to a hotel. But those people giving this hotel a low rating have got to be the pickiest folks ever! This hotel impressed us from the moment we set foot in the lobby. It was as I would expect a Country Inn & Suites. It was warm,...
