My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at the Shem Creek Inn for my niece's wedding weekend. We chose the hotel because of it's location. I grew up in Charleston, and I knew that the Shem Creek Inn had a reputation for being slightly run down. But after reading some very positive reviews on Tripadvisor saying that it... More

Everything was excellent! The hotel is small, which we liked, and it's looks a little run down on the outside, but don't let that fool you. It was a wonderful stay. Good continental breakfast, room was clean, comfy beds, a nice view, and a great location. The staff was nice, too. We will be back again.

I have stayed here many times. It is a property built in the 60's (?) , every room has a balcony. Front rooms face the creek, rear rooms face the parking lot and marshes. There are several restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk ( a few are a one minute walk). It is not a luxury kind of... More

The view was amazing over the canal. we watched dolphins play from our balcony. Nice boardwalk. Friendly staff. If only pets were allowed-then it would be our go to place while in Charleston. Highly recommend

We arrived to Shem Creek and was greeted by the staff. The staff was very polite and courteous. The room was neat and clean. We have stayed at Shem Creek on several occassions and come to expect this from them. The only thing I see that could be improved is the continetal breakfast. The offerings were slim and lacking.

I will admit I am slightly high maintenance when it comes to hotels. I was a little concerned the Inn would be on a "will not return" list from the outside. It is just a little "worn" looking. However, I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a room with 2 Queen beds. The room looked newly renovated. Our room over... More

Spent a few days at the Inn, Rooms were appointed and clean! Had lunch at the restaurant, great staff and a good value. Breakfast was typical but plentiful. Unfortunately there is construction at the docks to improve the marsh walk..but not noisy just interesting!

Yes, this is our view from the deluxe premium room. Beautiful Boardwalk, great restaurants.....wish I had been informed of this construction that would obstruct our view of the creek and all the boat and kayak activity we'd like to sit and watch from our balcony!! We are going to try to move to a higher room overlooking the pool tomorrow... More
