We had a lovely time at Lakeside Lodge. The accommodations were great. We slept very well. You cannot beat the lake view. We had dinner at Traditions Friday night and it was outstanding! Karson waited on our table. She did an amazing job. We will be back!

Numerous bugs and spider webs in our room and it smelled! We went to front desk to complain and the girl told us there’s no manager on so she can’t do anything. Just save your self the hassle and find another hotel no matter how nice the pictures may seem.

This was my fourth stay at the Lakeside Lodge and the first time I can leave a 5 star review. The property slowly seems to be coming around. Little things like having coffee set up in the lobby in the morning was nice to see (breakfast will be a nice addition someday). My room was stocked with everything I needed - shampoo, conditioner, soap, dish soap and a fresh sponge, paper towels etc. I hope they continue to improve as the property is lovely and location to Clemson is very convenient. This time I traveled solo to move my daughter out. We are booked again for move in this summer.

Have staged at Lakeside several times in the past and have been pleased with our prior stays. Our most recent stay we had minor issue which had Lakeside addressed I would have not even considered writing this review. After first night’s stay realize the shampoo and body wash dispensers were empty. Walked down to the front desk to request they be refilled. Two hours later request not fulfilled. Walked down to front desk again to check in on status of initial request they said someone would be by to refill soon. Next morning (24 hours later) request still not fulfilled so my wife stops down to front desk, to request refills again and first response from person at front desk is “we have you checking out this morning” and ultimately fulfilled our request by coming back with shampoo in a coffee cup. I know things go wrong but it’s what is done to fix them which counts. They need to learn how to take ownership of customer requests. An initial response to our third request of “when are you leaving” makes you wonder what priority is placed on customer service.

We're sorry you didn't enjoy your stay this time, BertHerm. We always do our best to make sure every guest is perfectly taken care of. Still, we should always work to resolve a concern and it sounds like that did not happen in this case. We apologize for not meeting our usual standards and hope you'll give us another chance to show you how enjoyable our stays really are.

Not a great experience. Check in is at 4. We arrived at 4:20 and were told our room isn’t ready ( short staffed). Would be a few minutes. Waited in lobby until 5. Still no room and no update. Checked again and were told soon and they would call. I finally called at 6:30 and the room was ready but no one had notified us. I understand short staff but we should have been offered something for inconvenience - drink in the bar, free appetizer. Something !? Room is ok. Used water bottle left under bed. No soap or shampoo in shower dispensers. No disposable cups and glass ones look not clean. Will avoid in the future. Definitely not what I’d call a resort. Will stick with The Abernathy. Far superior

We will use this as a learning experience on how we can improve. It is important to us that our guests are more than satisfied and we would like the opportunity to discuss any issues you may have encountered. Please feel free to call and speak to a manager.

This property looks great but, once you check in, you are left to the wolves. This place is a pig in lipstick! We had 3 rooms/2 nights for a family graduation celebration. We were told the rooms would be adjoining/close but all were at complete opposite ends of the property. There was no knowledge by staff at check in to get keys that work, NOTHING was stocked for us in the room- we had a few paper towels, 1/4 roll of TP, NO shampoo/conditioner/shower gel in the shower (I remembered from our visit this fall as a nice amenity), one dishwasher pod. After a terrible shower, I called to ask for some and was told they'd be "right over" but nothing for an hour- had to call again. It would have been nice to have the bed made but- no again. The only time we were acknowledged was when we were not out right at 11:00- we were told we'd be charged 1/2 day if we aren't out by 11:30... oh my!!! For over $200/room/night- go somewhere else in Clemson! I'll never stay here again.

We're disappointed to see this is the impression you got of our establishment and we're surprised that your room was not stocked upon your arrival. Your request for items should have been fulfilled in a more timely manner, and we do apologize for not being prompt. It's a shame you feel you won't be back. Hopefully, you'll change your mind and decide to see all we have to offer.

My family and I were in Clemson for a mini family reunion in July this year. We reserved 5 rooms and a lakeside suite with a sitting room. We were there for 2 nights, checking in on Friday, July 23rd and checking out on Sunday, July 25th. When we arrived Friday afternoon , the toilet in the bathroom of the room given to my mom and dad was not working. The hotel was full and there were no other rooms available to shift them. My parents could not use the bathroom for that entire night because there was no maintenance person available to fix the toilet. My parents are 78 and 83. To ask them to hold off not going to the bathroom for an entire night (they didn’t fix the toilet till close to 10 am the next morning) was totally unreasonable. One of the staff members came up with the “bright” idea that they could go to one of the other family rooms - I guess they didn’t care that an elderly couple would be traipsing around the hotel in the middle of the night, waking up other members of the family just to go to the bathroom. Around 9:45 am on Saturday, a maintenance engineer showed up and used a snake to dislodge a piece of soap that an earlier guest had dropped in the toilet. It took 15 minutes. After the toilet was fixed, no one cleaned it. There was a plunger on a plastic bag left in front of the toilet in the bathroom. I went and picked it up and left it outside near a housekeeping closet door. I got towels from my room, and sanitary wipes that we brought, and wiped the toilet and floor ourselves. I called the hotel front desk and asked that my parents be refunded the cost of their room for Friday night, since they were unable to use the bathroom, with all the stress of not being able to relieve themselves. I was assured that would not be a problem. However, no such refund was given in my dad’s bill at checkout. After we returned home, I called several times and left several voicemails for two managers, and sent an email a few days ago. To this day, 9 weeks later, not a single person from Lakeside Lodge or Southern Resort Group has returned my calls, voicemails or email.

We check in on Sunday night after a 13 hour trip from NY. Ate dinner at the restaurant and jumped in the pool and hot tub. We had 1200 square feet of living space for 3 nights. It is in the perfect location of moving our youngest into Clemson. My husband and I had a king size bed with a huge bathroom. In the middle we had a large kitchen and living room. The other side had two queens and another beautiful bath. People were very friendly even though they were clearly understaffed. Monday night the restaurant is not opened at all. We hope to stay again for a parents weekend or other Clemson event. Truly a trip that we will remember for a lifetime.

Had pretty high hopes for this property, given the location and the prices. Well, it took well over an hour for them to “finish inspecting our room”, so didn’t actually get to check in until well after the stated check in time (after a long 6 hour drive to get there). Had a lovely $300+ view of the parking lot, room was meh, no remote for the TV, a comedy of blunders. Finally got a remote, actually went through three, none of them worked on the TV in the room. Nobody answered the front desk phone, nobody who worked there seemed to really care about being there. Skip this place, save your money.
