My wife and I stayed here recently for a group fishing trip. Location is great as it is right on the boardwalk. After location there is nothing special in fact this is a tired hotel. Beds are overly soft. Decoration is very blah. Bathroom is tiny and toiletries below average. Being on the boardwalk you have enough dining and bar... More

Can walk to bars and restaurants. Across the bridge from historic Charleston. Clean room and great view. Easy to get to and would definitely stay again. Would get a creekside view room again - beautiful view.

Shem Creek may have been our favorite stop on our two week tour of southern states. It was a beautiful area and a beautiful property. Customer service was excellent. Rooms were clean and in good repair. They are one of the only hotels (ever) that noted our special request for no feathers/down and took care of it pre-arrival, AND remembered... More

This is the second time we've done this at the Shem Creek Inn. We returned because rates are very reasonable and the location is hard to beat, especially if you want to... More

Shem Creek Inn is great for couples, not a lot for families with teenagers but can drive to beach and the fun. The beach is not as close as we thought, but still great when we got to the beach. Great spot to sit and do nothing.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the view was incredible, and the room was beautiful and cozy! It was a bit outdated, but everything was very comfortable and I love that each room has a little private balcony. The beds were very cozy and everything was clean. The Shem creek park is stunning, I definitely recommend walking over during your... More

The staff was wonderful and assisted me in the things I wanted to do. The rooms were a good size, the bed was comfortable. Only issue I had was I thought the parking was a little cramped. Maybe have a few more spaces.
