Stayed at Shem Creek Inn for a wedding in the area Friday, October 17,2014. The parking lot is a big mud hole. No way to get into the hotel without going thru mud. We booked 2 marsh view rooms. Checking in took a very long time and staff seemed confused. Once we finally got to our "marsh view" room, we... More

We have been coming to the Inn for a few years now and while some things are nice several continue to go downhill (while the prices go outrageously up). One of the greatest disappointments was the condition of the pier and the walls put up from Waters Edge to pier access. The parking lot pothole continues to grow and I... More

Shem Creek Inn was recommended by my son who has spent time there before. The Rooms were clean and staff was friendly. There was a large pot hole / Mud hole in the parking lot that we hit as soon as we got there no damage though. Our room overlooked the cove and the four bars/restaurants but was really not... More

If your looking for a fancy, brand new, all amenities hotel, this is not the place for you. If you looking for a great hotel, with fabulous staff, and a view to die for, this is the place. Yes, it's an older hotel, but, we didn't come here to stare at an uneven floor tile, or a small piece of... More

Shem Creek Inn place was very comfortable. There was 2 dolphins swiming right out in front. A few great bars in walking distance. Also Reds restaurant had all you can eat crablegs. This was just a great get away. We also charter a boat for sight seeing with a local Chris Margate 843-425-7259. He used fresh bait and knew the... More

Our family has stayed at this Inn for 16 years!!!! We come here for a few days to just rest and enjoy the creek. We love to stay on the creek side!!!! It offers magnificent views and a nighttime magical color show on the water from the lighting on the establishments surrounding it! They have replaced the sliding doors with... More

Stayed here w/ my husband to go to a friend's wedding. The hotel is worn out and not clean. The unpaved front parking lot had turned into a mud pit (appears to eternally be one, too) and arriving by cab and stepping out into the mud made a bad first impression that the rest of the hotel, unfortunately, lived up...

We have come here often, we had requested the "premium creek side king bed, with garden tub and wrap around balcony". The woman at the front desk put us in premium king bed room. I asked about it and showed my confirmation papers, she said to wait for the manager. When the manager came, his name is Christopher, he was... More

Stopped over or a night on the way to Savannah. We are always greeted and welcomed warmly. Robbie is very accommodating and friendly. We will return often, as always. Creek side rooms have a spectacular view and the food at the Waters Edge is wonderful.

Everything was close and convientient to bars and restaurants. Loved the balcony and the boardwalk at... More
