We were looking for a Hilton property while in the Clemson area so we stopped by to see if they could accommodate us for one night. Our great stay started as we walked through the doors when we met Marnie at the front desk. She was busy helping a member on the phone but quickly helped us get a great room and price when she finished her phone call. Our room was super clean n very nice. The breakfast was very good also. Marnie even recommended a great restaurant, Pixie n Bills, where we got an awesome dinner. On our next trip to the area, we will definitely try to stay at this Hampton Inn. Thanks so much Marnie.

Friendly hotel staff, clean room, great location! I would recommend this hotel and location to friends and family. It's not far from the university and easy to get to. Loved the Clemson pride on display in the lobby too! #tigertown #Clemson

Chose this restaurant to be close to where my son is near Clemson campus. Price was a bif factor...it was within my desired cost range. I have stayed in many Hilton properties and know the Hamptons can be inconsistent in quality. This one was not the best and not the worst. Very clean overall, friendly staff, easy checkin, room was spacious enough. The subpar things have nothing to do with the day to day factors. This place needs some TLC and updates. Some things have been updated - carpets, some furniture, the lobby, but more is needed to bring it up to speed. My room furniture was dated and chipped/marred in places, the bathroom wallpaper raggedy in places, the attempt to repair the tub grout was clearly a bandaid effort. There was no table clock at all in my room. Bed was good....bathroom and room also very clean. So overall it was OK but I'd look for another place in the same price range if I get a chance next time. I think the owners need to decide to spend some more $$ to really bring this hotel to a higher presentation level.

My wife and I have stayed here on a few separate occasions. We hated Kim. I think it’s fair to say that everyone that’s ever set foot in this hotel hated Kim. I’ve expressed my feelings towards her in every review I’ve made of this hotel. The change in management made a world of difference. I have to give a shout out to Wayne. He was the nicest man. We were a little worried about staying here because of how things were before. Wayne treated us like family. He gave us a decent rate and made sure we had everything we needed. He checked in with us at least once a day to make sure we were taken care of. The room itself was clean and comfortable. All I can say is thank you. We will definitely stay here again and again

I enjoyed my stay here. Room was nice, clean and spacious. Staff I interacted with were friendly and helpful. I didn't have a chance to try the breakfast as I left at 3:30 AM. It was the nicest hotel I've stayed in on my trips to Tigertown though.

The inn is just ok, used to be when we road Harley’s around the country you could count on Hampton Inn’s to be top notch fir their class. Now it’s just average and expensive. It also discriminates against people with disabilities by not serving decaf coffee. Many seniors and those with heart conditions cannot have caffine.

Check in was a wonderful experience but was woken around 3:40am with gunfire outside the hotel. Left the next morning to sightsee for the day, returned that evening to find our room wasn’t cleaned, our bed not made, no bathroom towels and our room coffee wasn’t replaced. Called downstairs and asked why this things weren’t done while we were gone and was told that we have to stay two or more nights to receive these amenities. Very unacceptable.

Friendly people, however inexperienced customer service. Room was “ok” at the best, normally I always feel a “wow” factor during my stays in the Hilton chain hotels. Bed sheets dirty “ first time with this type of issues in my 5 years traveling across the nation. I went to the front desk lady to complaint about the bedsheets, she gave me a set of “new bedsheets” so I can changed myself because there was no one available. Coffee with a horrible taste and cold.
