    « Courteous and Fun »

    Stayed for 2 nights and the front desk clerk, Rhonda helped make my stay more enjoyable by referring local spots, direction and fun. Her enthusiasm helps with clientele. Thank you, I know where to stay in "TR" from now on!

    « Visiting friends »

    Very satisfied with the hotel--near Chinese restaurant and Grocery store. Good location, plenty of parking. Breakfast good with tv on. Nice landscaping. Pretty new motel. AC worked well Plenty of room.

    « Nice place and friendly staff »

    Checked in late Friday with the wife and really enjoyed our stay. The front desk clerk Rhonda was very nice and helpful. She had a great knowledge of the area and answered all out question easily. The room was a standard hotel room but it was nice and clean.

    « Great stay every time »

    I stay at this Best Western every time I go to Travelers Rest to visit my family, so usually 3-5 times a year. I travel alone with my 3 kids. The hotel is nice and clean and safe. The staff is friendly and helpful. The pool is clean and fun with good seats and towels. Breakfast and coffee always hit the spot. The other guests are always friendly and kind. I highly recommend this hotel and will continue to stay here whenever I go to TR. Be sure to join their rewards program for all the extras!

    « Not worth it »

    We stayed here for 1 night. The night staff was nice and the hotel was updated. We found hair in our sheets more than 1 unfortunately. I was ok with the 1 figured it was the housekeeper but it wasn't. We found about 5 short and long. Last thing I wanted to do when we checked in late was change our sheets. I did go down and they gave me clean sheets but still not what I wanted to do especially after a long day of driving. When we went to shower in the morning 3 of our 4 towels had stains and hairs on them. We all shared the 1 clean towel. The floor had a bunch of stains as well but we just wore our shoes. I will personally never stay here again but it was cheap so I guess you get what you pay for.

    « Good value. »

    The hotel overall was really clean, and the room was plenty big with great amenities. The staff was friendly and helpful during the whole stay. Only downside was that the breakfast was just average, but good value and really great location.

    « Wedding visit. »

    Stayed here for wedding. Everything was great and enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rates were very reasonable and breakfast was good.really worth the money if visiting this area.

    « Small business owner »

    When I first got to travelers rest I was exhausted and needed somewhere to sleep. I'd hoped for a clean room and good staff to help me get the rest I needed. From the front desk I could tell this was where I wanted to be. I also checked in without a reservation as I didn't know where my night would end. I wish I could remember the name of the front desk clerk but I do remember Rhonda. I found that I had forgotten some of my necessary products and Rhonda saved the day. She offered me any assistance she could provide and she did it with pleasure. You can tell when people are polite and don't mean it, they'd rather not deal with guests. I didn't find this to be the case when I walked in. The staff was a pleasure the room was good. Special thanks to Rhonda for making me feel welcome and comfortable. I look forward to the next time I'm passing through.

    « Absolutely great! »

    The hotel was extremely clean and the appearance was very eye pleasing. ALL of the staff were friendly, accommodating and professional. The amenities and level of comfort regarding the room was the best it could be! I stayed her for an entire 12 days, spending 70% of my time in the hotel and room and I couldn't ask for a better stay, it was great!

    « BEST Western »

    Very nice cozy clean hotel with friendly helpful staff. Not knowing the area they guided us to everywhere we needed to go. Breakfast has many delicious options. Comfortable beds with great views. Also providing a happy hour for guests that offered free drinks and snacks. I will definitely be returning.

    « Awesome Stay »

    Rhonda helped me in anyway possible at my stay at Best Western. Best Front desk lady!! My room was clean and neat. Everything was wonderful. I definitely will be staying here again. Smelt very clean . Love the new updated interior design.

    « Furman University »

    This Best Western is a nice new looking property and convenient for visiting nearby Furman. The beds were comfortable and the room was well appointed with a fridge and microwave. The glass shower was a nice touch not normally seen in this class of hotel. We tried the gym - with a bike, treadmill, and elliptical, it was very small. Breakfast was filling with a couple of hot selections and a waffle maker, as well as the typical continental fare. I would definitely stay again.

    « Relaxing Family Getaway »

    My husband, toddler, and I stayed at this Best Western in TR over the weekend for a quick birthday getaway. We booked and paid online the night before and had no issues checking-in or out. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was a lot better than that of another hotel we visited in Greenville this summer, and the overall hotel was updated, clean, and worthy of the price. When we booked online, we asked for a room with the best views (if any), and were placed in a top corner room with wide views of Paris Mountain. Our room looked recently renovated, clean, and simple. As typical with most hotel rooms, it had free WiFi, a TV with cable and HBO, a safe, and a mini fridge and coffee pot. The only issue we experienced with the room was that the bathroom smelled a little musty, and we discovered that the glass shower door let out quite a bit of water on the floor while showering. Within walking distance are BiLo, Little Caesar's, and an Asian restaurant. There are also a lot of cool little shops and restaurants in TR that are a short drive away. We enjoyed our time here and can't wait to get back upstate soon!

    « Best Western, Greenville, SC »

    This is a nice motel that exceeded our expectations. It was very convenient to our ultimate destination. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We definitely would stay there again if we needed a place to stay overnight in that area.

    « Convenient, nice »

    We stayed here for one night to attend an event at Furman. It was an easy drive and in an area with many restaurants and stores, but yet off the beaten path. Our stay was quiet. The room was very clean and well lit. (My biggest complaint about most Best Westerns is the lack of lighting.) The breakfast was ok. Staff was friendly.

    « Monday December 18th,2017 »

    Outstanding location for us,clean modern hotel, with very friendly and attentive staff. Suite we had was perfect for 3 adults and two children. First time at a best western but would recommend this location in a minute.

    « Not what I thought it would be! »

    Location of hotel is perfect due to it being so close to my family. The staff were great and the hot breakfast is so much better than most hotels. But.....the downfalls to this hotel are the price, the room, and the bathroom. The rooms are small, the bathroom only has a shower which sucked because we have young children, the sink has a towel rack installed in front of it so our children could not wash their hands without us picking them up to do so! Also, our pillowcases looked like they were not pulled so they could be washed! How nasty is that! Overall, I am not sure if we will stay again since the hotel is not child friendly.

    « Very nice place »

    I enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was not that good, but it was Ok. The room was fairly quiet and comfortable. The staff was friendly. It is in a good location. There are a lot of quality restaurants very close by.

    « If you just need a room »

    If you just need a place to sleep and an average cup of coffee this is the place to stay. Not expensive and clean just nothing extra it is a good value for the money. We only use the room to sleep, so it works well for us. We spend the day out of the hotel.

    « Good location, great service! »

    We recently spent 2 nights in Travelers Rest. The hotel is in a good location convenient to stores and restaurants. It was clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    « Nice visit »

    My husband and I followed the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway 11. We started early in the morning in Gaffney South Carolina and traveled the highway for several hours, stopping along the way at different points of interest. It grew late and we began to search for a hotel. We found the Best Western in Travelers Rest. Our room was very clean and it even smelled clean. To be honest, I wasn't afraid to take my shoes off and walk around in my socks like some hotels I've had the misfortune to stay in. It was that clean! The bed was cozy, just what we needed after a day of exploring. The shower was a welcome treat too! Breakfast the next morning was very good. They offered eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits,bagels, gravy, pastries,make your own waffles and cereal. A very nice experience all the way around!

    « Small but good »

    We stopped at this motel for the night, it had a small breakfast area, friendly staff, beds were soft, coffee good, close to shopping and restaurants. There was a mix up with key to first room, it was already occupied, but was remedied quickly. Good wifi and TV reception. Ice machine on first floor didn't work. I am not a fan of the sink area being opened to the bed area, lack of privacy. But the toilet and shower was behind closed doors.

    « Old motel been re-habed »

    Employees try hard, but this is rehabed an old motel and it looks pretty good at first sight, but you quickly recognize that it has limitations. Rooms are small, the bathrooms are small and odd...a small toilet & shower room but an open vanity in the bedroom space. Employees were good and helpful, but the breakfast is just the 'ready-made' same old fare. Weak coffee, no flavors selections doesn't leave a good taste in your mouth. Would be better if they really tried to upgrade their breakfast to offset the motel limitations that can't be changed.

    « Building codes »

    This hotel is very new and the construction of it was evidently at a lower standard than most, I realize that construction is done by code, but this one was built with the lowest ir codes,I believe.. the toilet is the lowest in height than I have ever seen!: The towel rack on the sink is placed directly in front of the sink, which makes it difficult for a 5 ft size person to rinse their face or brush their teeth or even shave without dribbling down their front! The room is quite small and the bed was so high that I had difficulty getting on it! The little room with the LOW toilet only had a single shower, no tub! It is a rather cramped room! and the door had a tendency to stick! All in all I would not consider staying in a Best Western until I found out when it was constructed!! This one is awful!! However, on a good note, the staff was a-One!!! The breakfast was delicious and hot food was hot, etc!

    « Great time! »

    We chose this hotel due to it's close proximity to hiking trails in the state parks. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. The decor was tastefully done and looked like it was done recently. We were welcomed by Tina who was very friendly and informative about the area. She informed us about a "happy hour" between 5-7 which we had never experienced in a Best Western. The rooms were very clean and beds extremely comfortable. They offer a hot breakfast with gluten free and dairy free options. We will definitely be back!

    « A gem in the South »

    We recently stayed at this Best Western due to its closeness to hiking trails in their state parks. What a pleasant surprise! It also is close to a quaint downtown with many food options and a brewery.The hotel is newly decorated with amenities you don't see at other Best Westerns. They offer a "happy hour" with cocktails and appetizers. Breakfast also has gluten free and dairy free options. The mattress was extremely comfortable.The staff is very welcoming and personable. We will be back next year!!

    « greenville best western »

    Great staff, nice, updated lobby, great breakfast. Room had stained carpet, toilet paper was the cheap, tissue like & an extra roll was not left in the room. Shower was tiny. Room was small. No blanket in the room.

    « Biking in Travelers Rest »

    Clean facility with comfortable beds, nice linens and wonderful shower! Wardrobe was spacious and refrigerator was larger than most in previous hotel / motel stays. There was a large selection of breakfast items including both hot and cold food choices.

    « Dirty Inside »

    Great Customer Service! Money Refunded upon my arrival. Moldy curtians, dead bugs on floor, Hair on Beds. Staffed uncompassing the Lobby sitting down chatting, while at 4'oclok check in rooms were like this.

    « WILL BE BACK!!! »

    Great staff, very clean! Beds are just as, if not more comfortable than ours and that's saying alot. Two free complimentary beer/wine between 5-7pm with horsdevours in the foyer/lobby area. Loved the atmosphere.

    « Our great stay at the Best Western »

    This Best Western was very nice and very clean. The staff were super nice and very friendly yet professional. We loved that there was a "happy hour" in the lobby in the afternoons. It was nice to have a glass of wine after a day of travelling. We used to stay at another hotel in Travelers Rest but after staying at the Best Western, it will be the only hotel we stay at in Travelers Rest. And it is conveniently located near shopping, restaurants and the main highway through town.

    « to stay »

    This was a great place to stay. We ended up here accidentally. The coffee and potatoes with peppers were the best I ever had in a Hotel/Motel. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable. They have re-done/updated the rooms/lobby ect. We used the Fitness room and although this is not something we usually do I feel it was a nice area. I would definitely stay here again !!

    « Quick trip »

    Very nice and new hotel. Great location and value. Staff was awesome and very helpful. Breakfast was better than expected. Visited family and being in Travelers Rest made it convenient with access to local restaurants.

    « Will Not Return »

    I will not return to this hotel. In our reservation we requested a quiet room on a quiet floor not next to the elevator. They put us next to the elevator on an open balcony that gets all the lobby noise. They wouldn't move us when we requested. I asked if we could have extended check out and was told yes for a $30 additional fee. Our room smelled musty and dank and the lavatory sink barely drained. The shower even with door firmly closed leaked a lot of water on the floor. And to top it all off, this morning in the breakfast buffet I saw a spider moving around the food containers. I'll not be back here.

    « Pleasant, clean hotel »

    Decent hotel that looks new and clean. Close to main road and easily accessible. The room was fine and the bed was adequate in comfort.The only drawback was the toilet and shower room that were extremely small and hard to maneuver. The floor had some clear stains that should have been removed. Notified the front desk when we left.

    « Very pleased with everything! »

    The hotel was very nice, very clean. The staff were all very nice. They made recommendations for dinner and it was excellent as well. Would definitely stay here again. Great location, handy to everything.

    « Not A Bad Place to Stay »

    Very good hotel. My only concern is the mattress was hard. I stay there on a regular bases while I visit my son there. The value cannot be beat. I am active duty military and I have a set amount on what they will pay for it. For the price, it is a great place to stay.

    « great stay »

    Hotel was clean, comfortable, and offered a great breakfast. Close to North Greenville University and was very affordable. Definitely plan on making this the place when stay when visiting our kids at NGU.

    « A haven in the storm »

    As evacuees from Hurricane Irma, we were extremely grateful for caring and helpful staff as well as the lovely rooms. The breakfast was well done, ample, and freshly prepared. The hotel was packed so breakfast was a madhouse, but the breakfast person was friendly, calm,and happy to help with every need. The room is a little small, but I learned to come early before the horde.

    « Family Reunion »

    We stayed at this hotel to attend a family reunion.check in was a breeze,the staff was super . Everyone was so friendly and efficient. The room was clean,the bed was very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Sleepless night »

    Be careful to close your curtain to help avoid glare which could cause a staff member to think your window is open and wake you up accusing you of such and then telling you the next time you could have a penalty fine. she called us twice with that accusation and threat around 2 am. Even though you may have a spectacular view of the moon, do not fall asleep watching it! We did not receive any compensation and my husband was told by one of the managers to just drink some coffee. The bed was very comfortable and other staff is amazing. Charlie and Pat at the front desk are AMAZING. Being woken up was the only thing that ruined this experience and the lack of sleep made the 12 hr. trip home impossible.

    « Beware »

    Too much emphasis on looks instead of cleanliness, comfort and hospitality. Talk the talk but can't walk the walk. Minimal cleanliness. No security. Bottom floor windows don't lock. Unreasonable staff and management. Can't decide on the house rules. One night stay maybe ok but I wouldn't stay any longer than that.

    « Charged me an extra $30 on my card the day after I checked out »

    Added an extra $30 on my card the day after I checked out. No mention at the desk of any charges and what that was for. I haven't called to complain but I will never stay at a best western again. I can't stand shady business

    « Very clean and updated »

    Found the hotel to be very clean and recently updated with new carpeting throughout. Breakfast was good. Fitness center was small (but how many people use it) but had new equipment, and we were able get in a good workout. The bathroom in our room was very tiny. It is a small hotel, and you could clearly hear everyone nearby showering or walking in the hallway. Overall, I felt it was a pretty good deal for the rate. Would recommend.

    « leisure getaway »

    excellent and comfortable upgrades in the room. Very cushy bed and soft sheets and comforter. Spacious room for everything. Extremely nice upgraded shower. Very nice television with vivid picture quality. Hotel staff very friendly. Happy hour included daily at no extra charge. Includes choice of beers with cheese, crackers and olives available. Great snack after a full day's hiking in the state parks. Breakfast was plentiful and lots to choose from.

    « Great Experience - highly recommend! »

    My husband and I spent two days in Traveler's Rest to ride our bikes on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and go hiking. The Best Western was perfect for us. Very clean and comfortable room. Enjoyed having a refrigerator in the room. Bed was very comfortable. Good breakfast - everything from yogurt and fresh fruit to biscuits, gravy, sausage and scrambled eggs. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They even let us bring our bikes into the room! We would definitely come back!

    « Awesome Experience »

    Love the Best Western Travelers Rest. This will be my hotel of choice from now on. Looking to retire in the area,so plan on coming back often and again. Came in for the 2017 Eclipse at 10:30 am to avoid traffic Though no rooms were available 4 1/2 hours early, we were given phenomenal directions on some of the best viewing sights nearby. Dead on! What a wonderful afternoon. Came back to the hotel and it was" Happy Hour". After being awake for 27 hours nothing like the feeling of home. A glass of wine or beer, ,snacks (crackers ,olives cheese) The girls at the front desk can give lessons to each and every hotel out there. Asleep by six pm. Quiet clean room. Following morning-- full breakfast. Not the usual continental. Ham, eggs, bacon, sausage ,bisquits w/ gravy, etc, etc ,etc! Nice to see the local enforcement stopping by enjoying a breakfast too. This is great way of making community relationships too. Can't wait to get back . Thanks Tina you,re the best!

    « Average Best Western »

    Stayed one night. Location was nice, close to restaurants and grocery store. Big parking lot, clean exterior. Staff at check in weren't the friendliest. Our room was on the 3rd floor. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Wifi worked pretty well. Bathroom was small but decent. The outdoor pool was freezing but at least it was clean. The hallways smelled like old pizza the entire time we were there. Breakfast area was very small. Not enough tables to accommodate more than three families. There was plenty of options to choose from and the food tasted good. Hot and cold variety included eggs, biscuits and gravy, cereal, ham, oatmeal, waffles, fruit, yogurt, pastries, bagels and sausage. It was very crowded when we were there. Lines were forming outside the breakfast room down the hallway. Staff kept the food filled but it was so packed we had a hard time just trying to move around people without spilling anything. We sat in the lobby and ate, which was fine.

    « Solar Eclipse Stay »

    Very good customer service. The double room appeared to be dated but very clean. There is not much sound proofing between upper floors so you hear a lot of heavy walking noise from the room above ours which was bothersome to us. Also we paid a stiff fee for staying during the solar eclipse but that was to be expected. Breakfast average but clean and good. The weight room and pool area very clean.

    « Questionable staff, uncomfortable conditions »

    Damp room, thin walls w noisy halls....less than helpful staff. Checked out and was charged 300.00 for having a pet in the room. I do NOT own a pet and was charged without any staff person ever speaking with me. I called several times and was unable to speak w anyone who could help me resolve this issue. My credit card company denied the ABSURD charge.

    « GREAT VALUE! »

    Rooms were clean, beds comfortable the only problem was the a/c in the room. No matter how low we turned it down to, it never got cold. But, none the less, it was comfortable enough to sleep. Breakfast bar was good. Had a nice variety and wasn't filled with all carbs and sugar items like some hotels. Best Western has a new look and is definitely a value. Will look for this hotel first in all the future cities we travel to.

    « Dirty Sheets and Poor Management »

    Had dirty sheets on check in. Took 30 minutes for someone to come and clean and would not let us change rooms. The manager, Mr Patel was extremely rude and really did not want to hear what we had to say. We told him we had pictures of the dirt and hair in the bed and he did not care!

    « Family Trip »

    My family needed a room at the last minute. They were convenient, helpful and very reasonably priced. If we travel that way again we will definitely stay here. Breakfast was absolutely great! The rail for the outdoor pool was a bit wobbly but that's my only concern.

    « BW Travelers Rest, SC »

    Ok value; just renovated hotel that is 2 miles from Furman University. Rooms are nicely decorated with new mechanicals. Some of the renos are a bit shabbily done, but nice location, friendly staff - a good value.

    « Travelers Rest BW gets an A+ »

    Get this> drove all day in traffic from Virginia, as soon as I checked in the young lady offered me for free and ice cold beer, we travel and stay at a hotel approximately 20 times a year and you just don't see the cleanliness, the hospitality as the BW has shown! Will be returning next summer in July and guaranteed we stay here again, Tina and her staff absolutely deserve an A+ Keep up the good work, Tina the manager is a True Delight!!!! DCD Offroading-MX-Extreme Sports Squad loves TR and The BW

    « Not a recommended place to stay »

    Poor customer service, hotel double booked and tried to ask some of our group to leave. Charged multiple credit cards way more nights than we were even there. Rooms are very damp and moldy. Our clothes, shoes and bedding were damp.

    « Cheap Hotel Average Experience »

    Good price on nightly rate. Small rooms with weird bathroom layout. Very cramped for a family of four. Not overly clean. Not sure that I would stay here again nor recommend for other customers. Nice exterior, disappointing rooms.

    « No longer pet friendly »

    We have stayed at this BW several times over the past year, enjoyed it. But when booking trip for August was told it is NO LONGER PET FRIENDLY. Very disappointed as we travel with our fur baby. Our Don & family live in TR & this was like 5 minutes away, however we ended up traveling to Greenville staying at another hotel. Very disappointed that this hotel changed its pet policy. Even though this web site & another particular one that is called Bring Fido, we will be notifying them also.


    This hotel is so cute. And the people at the desk were great. I also loved the hotel room. It was updated with a fresh look and beautiful colors. We also had all the TV stations we love to watch and great high speed internet.

    « Very good value for the money with great southern hospitality »

    From the moment we waked into the lobby it was welcoming. We were pleasantly surprised to walk into the lobby and see a modern, see-through, gas fireplace. On another wall there is a tranquil wall, waterfall! Marlena checked us into our room. She was so sweet and helpful. Offered us wine (it was happy hour) and gave us a great recommendation on a restaurant. The hotel and room was very clean and up-to-date, not shabby looking at all. Our room had a lovely view of Paris mountain and had all the elements needed for a hotel room. Our room included a desk area, microwave, nice size refrigerator, in room safe, good amount of drawers and closet storage and a comfortable kings-size bed. The only downside is the walls are thin and you could hear noise outside the room, Suggest packing earplugs.

    If you like----Ants, shorting out lights, moldy showers, beds too high to get into, than this is the place for you, Also the double charge on your card, 3 hours apart, Than again, this is the place for you....

    « Couldn't sleep »

    A/c kept shutting off. Drove me nuts. Kept waking up. Turned it off then restarted. Blew cold for a hour then started shutting off again. Wish I had a fan. Overall. Not a bad room or bad service. Breakfast wasn't too bad

    « family vacation »

    Hotel was updated with new carpeting and flooring. New doors and good security. Electronic locks worked well. Wonderful beds and bedding. Clean rooms and TV remote. Staff was friendly and helpful. New HVAC system worked well.

    « Fine Hotel. Great Staff. »

    We were desperate for a place to stay as our housing arrangement fell through at the last minute. Charlie and her staff couldn't have been more accommodating to my family's needs. The breakfast was one of the best served at any morning hotel. Charlie and the young lady who came after her were both great. So was the lady who served breakfast. And, we appreciated the cleanliness from Maria the house cleaner. Well done!

    « Nice stay »

    Very helpful people, they worked with me and gave me time I needed on my checkout time decision, which was great as i was in the area for a funeral. Nice military discount. Nice area. Pool looked good, didn't have time to use it though!

    « Hotel close to Furman University »

    Excellent, moderately priced hotel within 2 miles of Furman University. Nice breakfast, clean rooms and outdoor swimming pool. Close to Greenville, South Carolina. In a small town called Traveler's Rest that has cute restaurants and the Swamp Rabbit Trail for biking or hikes.

    « Travelers Rest's Home away from home »

    When I arrived, I was blown away by the renovations that have occurred at the best Western in Travelers rest South Carolina. Almost immediately after check in, part of the city was hit with a power outage. Charlie at the front desk made sure that all of our needs were taken care of and even made suggestions for a Local restaurant to enjoy while they were waiting for power. What a difference a kind, professional, and attentive representative can make when most would be frustrated at the circumstances that occurred beyond anyone's control. Thanks for a great stay!

    « Front desk tried hard to accommodate our needs. »

    Did not get what was promised when we booked the hotel, but the young lady, Charlie, at the desk worked hard to work the problem out. She was very polite and respectful. 5 stars for her. Hotel is nice and very clean.

    « Very good stay, Close to Greenville »

    My wife and I stayed two nights for a getaway to nearby Greenville SC. Good price for the location. Easy access to Greenville and surrounding attractions. . Greenville Drive Baseball stadium and Downtown Greenville. Minutes for quaint Travelers Rest. Will always stay here when in town.

    « TR Awesome »

    Stay here I highly suggest it. Comfortable bed, great breakfast, clean building. A little better customer service from the check in crew but the rest of my stay made it easy for me to forget. Close to where I hiked, close to downtown Greenville where I saw a baseball game. Great location.

    « Mountain Retreat »

    So close to everything we wanted, nature, shopping and fine dinning. Room and hotel were clean and modern. The breakfast was outstanding. We hope to make it an monthly event there. The fitness center had what we needed. I also felt very safe, which for me is a huge thing . My room was very accessible and they even had a left chair to help get in and out of the pool.

    « not again »

    breakfast was good, cleaning service poor, desk staff good. would not come back. Hotel was noisy the day we arrived and stayed noisy into the early morning hours. Location of hotel is ok and we had quick access to Greenville.

    « Less that helpful staff »

    Hotel is okay until you have a little problem. Staff will not help resolve the issue. I had a wifi problem. The wifi code I was given was wrong. When I tried it a few times I was locked out of the wifi system. Had the code been typed, I could have read it. When I was locked out the lady at the front desk simply refused to do anything to help. Actually telling me she could do nothing. Nonsense! She just didn't want to help.Made all the worse because I had a work deadline I then missed.

    « Stay one night »

    We stay one night a month usually.We are Evangelist.And we come to have 3 services!We always enjoy are stay.We would like a earlier check in.Other then that we are very happy.The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    « If you need a clean room it works »

    BW Travelers Rest is fine if you just need a bed for the night. The accommodations are average. Not bad, but not exceptional. When the serviced the room they did the bare minimum. They forgot to restock cream/sugar and coffee. Just made the bed and picked up the towels.

    « Nice stay but weird smell »

    This hotel is in a great location close to NGU. Our room had a weird odor when we entered. We dealt with the first night but the second day we had to switch rooms. The hotel staff was going to charge us extra for changing rooms but when we complained she didn't charge extra. Overall, the hotel is nice with a good breakfast. The shower doors leak some which made the floor slippery but was a big clean shower. A little pricey but not much to choose from in this area. It was close to restaurants which was nice.

    « Great hotel! Super breakfast! »

    This hotel was a nice surprise! We were traveling for a tournament at North Greenville University and this was 15 minutes from school. Friendly staff, great breakfast, clean rooms and even background music playing in the hallways was a nice touch! Modern lobby with large tv, fireplace and cool furniture. Rooms were nice, beds comfy but doubles not queen size.

    « very satisfied »

    charlie did a great job during check in.she was helpful and thoughtful..would stay there again when visiting in travlers rest south carolina. room was clean and breakfast was good. good selection of all types of breakfast foods

    « GreatPlace »

    The breakfast buffet had everything you could want. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The biggest surprise was in the bsthroom. In the shower enclosure, attached to the wall, was a dispenser holding both shampoo and body wash. I had never seen this in a hotel on this level. This was a winner to me. Would not hesitate to stay here again and would gladly recommend this Best Western to any and all.

    « A good place to stay »

    A well staffed and comfortable place to stay. A full breakfast buffet with plenty of seating. Very nice exterior appearance and very clean throughout. Internet was quick with a good selection of channels on TV. Well lit and very bright.

    « IF you are looking for cheap, here's the place »

    Great new rooms, but their goal is to get you up early and get you out. They are noisy and loud and are looking just for the next guest- and I'm only talking about the staff. It's a shame because the newly designed rooms are very comfortable.

    « Lovely »

    I was apprehensive at first because of previous review and star rating; however apprehension was eased throughout the stay. I booked the room because it was the only one left in the town. Rooms were clean, and pleasing to the eye. Bed was comfortable and hotel was modern and recently renovated.

    « Exceeded expectations »

    Looked for a reasonable priced room near Furman University arriving late and checking out early, guest room was nice, hotel was quiet, staff was friendly, bfast was good, property was well maintained, recently renovated and clearly managed with care to detail

    « Very pleased »

    The outside and inside were very attractive. Staff was friendly and made the overnight stay more enjoyable as we came and went to visit family in Greenville. Would use it again if we needed a place to stay again.

    « Excellent! »

    We stayed here twice this month while traveling on business. The staff are super helpful, the property is brand new and the beds are fantastic. Definitely will stay again. Thanks to Pat at the front desk!

    « Excellent suprise!!! »

    I have to say that I was not expecting what I experienced due to previous stays here. The hotel has been completely refurbished and completely to my approval. Very nice hotel. The lobby, hall, rooms, pool and breakfast area were very clean and tastefully decorated. The 2 ladies I delt with were extremely accommodating and cordial (they are Charlie and Gloria) thank you Ladies for your kindness. Best Western needs to hold on to these 2 employees. Every one there was busy doing there jobs. Very professional. My wife and I will definatly stay here again. I even received a phone call from Charlie on my drive home making sure check out went well for me, that's what I call accommodating. Thank you, Thomas and Brenda Mansfield, Titusville, Florida.

    « A Travelers Rest! at Best Western »

    We loved the Best Western in Travelers Rest, north of Greenville. This is a new hotel and is well kept, clean and well staffed by knowledgeable people. Next to shopping and a quick drive to the "downtown" & main street restaurants. Very enjoyable stay while touring the area, highly recommended!

    « New and clean »

    This hotel was new and therefore fairly clean which I appreciate very much. The bed was very comfortable. I will say the quality of renovations was somewhat lacking in some areas-the caulking in the bathroom was pretty rough. Torn wallpaper was painted over in the room-dumb stuff that could have looked nicer if it was properly done. The continental breakfast was more than I expected; a nice variety and area was very clean and well stocked. Ginger Arnold, the hostess for breakfast was very pleasant and helpful. Gloria at the front desk was friendly and accommodating. I only had one issue with a front desk person in the evening who was irritated with something and got snippy and rude with me. Other than that, the stay was pleasant.

    « People Make The Difference »

    Stayed here for two nights with a large group. There were some issues with reservations but all turned out well. Miranda(sp) was a pleasure to deal with and handled it with a smile. The hotel is immaculate! Nice workout room for the size. Ginger did an amazing job with breakfast each morning!! One of the best small breakfast buffets! Rooms were humid which was odd because our thermostat was set to 72. The papers in the room were damp because of all the moisture. Bottom line:great value and even better staff.

    « Very Nice Clean and Comfortable »

    Nicest hotel in area. Close and convenient to North Greenville University. . Clean comfortable and spacious rooms. Upgrade to suite well worth it with 3 adults in room. Nice breakfast spread. Will always stay there when visiting North Greenville University!

    « Unexpected surprise »

    We were expecting OK, but not great based on reviews and past experiences. I've stayed in expensive hotels and moderately priced hotels. You usually get what you paid for. This BW was excellent in all regards. We were a group of 3 couples renting 3 rooms. All of us were impressed. A very pleasant surprise indeed.

    « Very comfortable bed but that's about it... »

    The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable but there were issues that would prevent me from staying there again. The room was very humid despite running the air conditioner all night. I made sure it was on the proper high cool setting, not just the fan. The temperature was turned down to about 70 which is about 4 or 5 degrees colder than we usually have it set at our house but it still felt very damp and humid which caused me not to have a good night's sleep. The shower stall didn't have a shelf for personal toiletries. It comes with a dispenser for shampoo (no conditioner) and a dispenser for body wash. There was no where to put a bar of soap, shaving cream, razor, etc. Also, the sink is not in the bathroom, it's in the bedroom so if you have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night keep in mind that you risk waking up any other person in the room when you have to turn on the light to wash your hands! Last, the dining area is very small. My husband and I had to eat breakfast at the computer desk because there were no seats in the dining area or lobby.

    « So disappointed! »

    I've always found Best Western to be a good hotel, but this place was so disappointing! We had 2 rooms, both on the 1st floor. Cars were parked directly in front of our rooms, which meant we couldn't open the curtains. Then, we could hear the people on the 2nd floor walking overhead! The walk-in showers had no shelves or grab-bars, and you couldn't even adjust the showerhead; it was a box with a drain and a door that didn't fully close, so the water got all over the floor. My brother's room had a faulty toilet, and he killed a roach on the wall and left for the mgmt. to see. All the locals told us we should have stayed at the Hampton Inn!

    « Charlie at front desk is the best. »

    Everything was great. Charlie at front desk really helped us out-BIG TIME. She is great front person for Best Western. We booked two Best western rooms at wrong location, through ORBITS, and Charlie called them, and got our money back, and two rooms there where we wanted them.

    « Great Choice »

    We were much impressed with this hotel. It had been recently remodeled...stayed there before when it was a Sleep Inn. The change was stunning! The décor was beautiful, the continental breakfast was fabulous, and the staff was extremely friendly. Everything was top notch! We will be staying there when in the area again. This was a great choice!

    « Great rooms, Great Prices, Charlie was SO hospitable. »

    We've been working in the area and stayed here twice. When greeted by the staff at the front desk Charlie made us with a smile. The rooms look brand-new, the beds were super comfortable but when you're working out of town and somebody treats you like family it makes you feel like you're home!!

    « Friendly staff, clean and modern, we love this hotel. »

    This hotel is very clean, remodeled in a modern decor, comfortable, free full breakfast. Charlie at the front desk was so friendly and helpful getting us checked in. We will always stay here every time in the area. Highly recommend!

    « Great Hotel and Service »

    They have a very friendly staff, lovely decor and a great hot breakfast. It looked as though it was newly renovated. Everything was much better than we expected. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit family in the area.

    « Awesome stay »

    The place was great. Nice and friendly staff, bed was comfortable, had a microwave and a frig in the room. Loved the look of the floor, wood. The breakfast was awesome, bacon, eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles, toast, cereal, milk, orange juice, apple juice, coffee, hot chocolate, tea.

    « Made you feel like you were at home »

    I stayed in Room 117 and it was great. It did not have a great view, but I was gone all day and early evening so it did not matter. The room was large, clean, filled with all the amenities rooms should have. The king size bed was wonderful! I am betting it was new. The staff was on duty, I mean on duty 24 hours a day! If you needed any kind of help or assistance they were there to help you. The breakfast was bountiful and in a pretty and clean dining space, much larger than a room. The flowers, fountains, and updated modern décor making staying here delightful. When you leave you will be wanting to return soon. Do not miss the Town of Traveler's Rest either, the restaurants are shopping are outstanding. I went to do some work at Forman University and fell in love with this little town and it's people.

    « Great Location - Friendly Staff »

    I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while visiting my mom in a nearby hospital. It was in a great location~close to everything I needed for the trip. The room was comfortable and the staff was very friendly. It was nice to be able to have a little breakfast each morning which Ginger did a nice job of setting up. The only drawback I could mention would be the thin walls and floors which made for not such good nights' sleep.

    « Great service! Charlie at the front desk was the best!! »

    My daughter and I were greeted cheerfully by Charlie at the front desk. We chatted about our college road trip and she gave us directions to the next days visit. The room was clean and comfortable, but I noticed that the ice machine next to us was a little loud for me and thought it might keep me up. I went down to see Charlie. They didn't have another room like ours so she gave us a bigger room. No problems, no extra charge. Charlie saved the day! Nice, quiet, and comfortable room. Great experience!

    « Great hotel for price »

    Charlie at the front desk is awesome! From check in to check out great experience. Clean, friendly and very accomadating. Breakfast has a great selection. Room great bed comfortable. This is a great location for our family for Clemson Games.

    « Stay »

    Very pleased, I will definitely use this facility again if I'm in the area. Breakfast was very filling and the options were amazing. I will definitely recommend this to everyone. Very, very good experience.

    « Welcome! »

    We arrived at this hotel and we're greeted by Marlene and Charlie! They were very professional and welcomed us. It was happy hour and we stayed in the lobby for a beer and relaxed. Marlene also helped us pick a place for dinner, and she did an awesome job, we loved the place she sent us! Great way to welcome us to town!

    « Very dirty... keep driving! »

    The first room we were given had pubic hair in the shower and feces stains on the comforter. The floor was filthy. The sink was dirty. The condiments or half-empty. We reported this to the front desk and given another room... The second room was a bit cleaner. I wiped the floor around the toilet and took the dark dirty towel with urine and someone else's hair down to the front desk and the reaction was I'm really sorry. The fact that this seemed normal was shocking . I was not offered another room or for anyone to come clean the room. I don't think you should pay $90 to clean your own room. I did not sleep at all because I was worried about putting my face or someone else's body parts were the night before and having someone's body fluids On My Feet and shower. I wish I had just slept in my car.

    « Very nice »

    The lady at check in (light red hair) was very helpful the hotel has been redone and has a pretty lobby. The bed was great. At breakfast the juice container was overflowing and the woman who came to help did not seem too happy yo be there and was a little rude. But still would stay again and recommend

    « The BEST Best Western »

    Right from the start the staff was so friendly and helpful. I have never been to Travelers Rest and they nicely answered all my questions. The housekeepers did a great job with the rooms and were so sweet to give me extra towels when I asked. The hotel itself is beautiful. They even have a fire pit out back! How many hotels have that! We didn't have to waste money on breakfast because they had a huge buffet style breakfast that was delicious. And the evening managers special was just too cool. We didn't want to leave and almost extended our stay because we were so comfortable. Believe me, I'm telling everyone to come here and my friends and I will definitely be back soon.

    « Good place , like it »

    We really enjoyed our stay in this place , hotel was beautiful & staff was friendly and helpful. I recommend this motel , we were only two for two night , but will revisit again when we come back in travelers rest , sc and also breack fast service is really nice ,

    « Eventful Stay »

    Room clean but small staff very helpful but found beds too high to be comfortable. Fell out of bed injured self. Staff was very helpful during this emergency. Have stayed here before renovations will not return. Breakfast missing eggs due to miss ordering for holiday weekend. Other selections contained too much salt for diet.

    « The best place »

    It's a great place to stay at. As soon as you enter in the hotel you are received with a friendly tone. The breakfast was good, and the housekeeping was so nicely when I asked for a crib for my daughter. Good breakfast. I can't wait to plan my next weekend in Greenville and stay at the Best Western...

    « Good sleep nice breakfast !!! »

    We were traveling for a church related work and we had to stay at this hotel that was the best division we made by choosing to stay at this hotel. Everyone was very warm and welcoming had a good stay the rooms were very clean all the amenities were beyond the expectation. Out car wouldn't start so the General Manager of the hotel gave us a ride to the church so we wouldn't miss our program, they went out of their way to help us. Checking in and checking out experience was very easy and smooth they were friendly and explained everything. Best part of the stay was the breakfast. Large buffet selection more items to choose from and breakfast attendance was very welcoming with bright smile.

    « Very good end friendly »

    Staffs are very friendly and helpful, everything about the hotel was exceptional. It was clean, stylish. excellent service breaks was great. Room itself was well equipped and comfortable. I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future.

    « It's very nice place , nice service Room is nice & clean thanks to Maneger and all staff »

    It's beautiful clean place they have just went thru major renovation and newly branded hotel Manager happy hour is the best and very friendly staff + hot breakfast they have done good job Little but clean room Nicest best western ever

    « Very inviting, clean and friendly »

    I stayed with my daughter and it was more than I expected.. everyone extremely friendly, rooms very very clean , breakfast was a restaurant style , very large selection to choose from, they even open up the juice machine late evening for my baby , staff very helpful and well trained in from housekeeper to front desk clerk everyone was working with bright smiles on the face and that says about the place. We loved the fire pit and enjoyed hanging out late evening. It was safe. Nice experience at this place and I will definitely take my family again and stay at this hotel.


    First off this is NOT a luxury hotel, nor do they have high prices. It is an economy hotel and on that basis it is just fine and clean and they are trying hard. It is nonsmoking totally, which is wonderful. I am not an economy hotel person so I rather they had made some other choices in the remodel and breakfast, but at $90/night it is not a fair comment. 1) the toilets are far to low to the floor, they should of gone for higher ones 2) The towels are very small and not very thick 3) The King room standard is fine size, adequate, but not large 4) Wi-Fi is great and every room has a HUGE fridge micro etc, iron, very well though out for the business or vacation travelers who might stay a week 5) Breakfast has more than I expected, but would of like an egg dish, but they had waffles! 6)Bed is very nice with lots of pillows 7) free papers at he desk in the AM0 Staff very friendly

    « If You're Going to a Clemson Game »

    This hotel used to be a Sleep Inn, but is now a Best Western. We chose it several years ago because of the proximity to Clemson and the mountains of NC, meaning it's on the way after a game. The other reason we like it is because, unlike all the hotels in Clemson and Anderson, they do NOT double the price or double the number of nights you have to stay here on a game weekend. AND you can cancel just 24 hours before. That helps a lot when they don't announce the time of a game until Monday or Tuesday of the week we play. Everything is all brand new in each room, with the mattresses and the linens being lovely!!! They could leave more towels in each room, and I do wish they had opted to build a real closet rather than have wardrobes, but the front desk said there simply was not room enough for that except in the suites. But it's all VERY nice! There is even an outdoors firepit! I will say that the installation of the shower panels did leave something to be desired...they figured a caulk gun would cover all their mistakes in measuring, even if it meant using two different colors of caulk!! And the breakfast offered is quite adequate, but only if the person in charge keeps up with what needs to be refilled.

    « Great stay for the price! »

    The GM and Asst. GM were very accommodating upon arrival. Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Overall, we had a very nice stay and we would definitely return to this hotel when staying in TR.

    « Lipstick on a Pig »

    The hotel looked very nice in photos - the renovation looked modern, chic, and very cool. However, upon checking in the first thing we noticed were all the shady characters hanging around, who always seemed to be loitering in the halls. Once we entered our room we were hit with a nasty odor, and found that while the updates selected for the renovation were actually very nice (quartz counters, high end tile, etc) the workmanship was the worst we've ever seen. There was grout and caulk all over the place, cracks, spots all over the tile floor, toilet felt like it was going to disconnect from the floor at any second, and did we mention the smell???? I know we got a pet friendly room (which was about the size of a closet btw), but I wouldn't expect a stench to hit me in the face, especially considering the floor was all tile. They did serve a nice breakfast and offered free beer at happy hour, but overall we felt very uncomfortable in this hotel. It felt dirty and you could hear EVERYTHING above and around you. Seriously, there must be no insulation between the walls at all. This should have been more like a $50 room than the $109 we paid. Very disappointed and would not stay here again.
