We have stayed at Shem Creek several times. The best thing is the creek view of the boats and dolphins. The rooms are ok,but the hotel needs up dating. The parking lot is sand with pot holes and the building is showing its age. The prices have gotten too high for the condition of the properity yet they continue to... More

The Shem Creek Inn is not fancy, but it is unique and has lots of character. The location is what makes the place so great. It is positioned to overlook beautiful Shem Creek and has a GREAT bar/nightlife area on the back patio/deck. It is a favorite hang out for locals. The Inn has been newly renovated. It's perfect and... More

Very comfortable beds but we had to ask twice for stuff to be cleaned. Food on room floor and a big patch of hair on the shower wall. The manager himself finally came and cleaned it after housekeeping failed to do it while we were out during the day.

My girlfriend and I decided to take a vacation in our own town. We have eaten dinner off of Shem Creek many times and decided to give the Shem Creek Inn a try. We chose a room on the Creekside for the view and it was absolutely amazing! We stayed in The deluxe king room which was very nice and... More

Have stayed before and will stay again. Wish there were rates for senior or AAA. Kind of pricey for seniors but the view was nice and coffee in morning was great. Great staff...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The location for this hotel was perfect. Live music and restaurants all around. The water was awesome to look at and relaxing. The rooms were fine and the pool was nice for my kids. We would return here.

Overall great price for the location. Lots to do in the area, many choices for food & drinks. I would recommend the hotel. The only disappointing thing with the stay was waking up to hammering on the pool deck outside of the room @ 9 a.m.

My husband booked us a room here for two nights for our eleventh wedding anniversary. The total for the two nights was over $560. I could not believe he paid that much for this place. The smell of mildew and mold almost knocked me down when I opened the door to our room. There was black mold in ceiling tiles... More

Great location & accommodations. Within walking distance of several good restaurants. Clean & great pool. Creek side view was outstanding. Saw dolphins every afternoon. Housekeeping could use some instructions on leaving coffee, shampoo & soap. They didn't leave these & had to ask at front desk. Would stay again & bring my own soap/shampoo & conditioner (shampoo was terrible).
