I was expecting this to be more more of an upscale Inn, and although Wendy at the front desk was absolutely charming and helpful, the rest of the hotel was disappointing enough that I would definitely seek other accommodation next time I am in the area. But my biggest complaint would be the actual cleanliness of the room and the... More

Charleston can be expensive, so this is a great location that is more economic and right next to some wonderful restaurants. The staff are wonderful too. The breakfast is simple but at least it is provided!

The good of this hotel is the rooms are very big, clean and comfortable. They looked like they all have decks, and the location is right on the river so if you get a river view you will have not only a view of the shrimp boats going in and out but a great sunrise view as well. Ask for... More

If you are looking for a quiet, upscale hotel, this is not the place to go. It is true that the parking lot is unpaved and the place isn't exactly modern. But, if you are looking for a relaxing, unpretentious hotel with a great view (recommend 2nd floor, creek side) of the water and the wild nightlife, then this is... More

we only came to this hotel due to the fact it was the cheapest one around charleston. the exterior looks like a remodeled Joes Crab Shack. since its all wood, you hear everybody everywhere walking if you are on the bottom floor.

We booked the Romantic Package, and had a few glitches. But, the new Manager made sure that they wanted our business the next time we get to the Charleston area. We understand, a mistake can happen, but when they acknowledge it, and then correct it, is all we can ask for. The view is awesome of the creek and the... More

If you want to be near water instead of pricey downtown Charleston you may want to rough it here. The taxi ride to Charleston is quick and cheap. Close to Fort Sumter ferry and tour of aircraft carrier, submarine and destroyer. Staff was very accommodating and moved us when our first room smelled moldy. Recommend having a creek side room...

It was a refreshing place to stay. We normally stay in historic Charleston, but this time decided to do something different. The rooms are a little tired, but still nice, clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. In our first room the ac didn't work, but they put us into a new room within minutes. We did pay... More

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
