My husband & I both love Shem Creek so I booked a great room at the Shem Creek Inn for his birthday present in November 2 yrs ago. We love all the creek action including their Cabana Bar & Reds! We booked it again for my birthday in 15 days & we can't wait to get back there! We have... More

We just went down to Mt. Pleasant, staying at Shem Creek Inn, to get some of the local flavor... Location was outstanding - an inn on the waterfront, surrounded by restaurants, bars and grills. The inn/hotel is an older building with a very good staff. The room was nice and the sheets smelled very clean.. the only downside was the... More

Spent one night here on our way to Isle of Palms. Very nice staff. Many bars and restaurants within a minute walk. Waters Edge, which is in front, has a great outside bar with wonderful bloody marys and good food. We also ate at Vickerys and Reds. Room was nice enough for the price. Loved having a balcony that overlooked... More

this place is walking distance to great bars and restaurants on Shem creek. It's not a "luxury hotel" but it's clean, up to date, comfortable and resonably priced. I'd recommend a room on the 2nd floor as the view is better and is a little more private. Ahhh...the view. Rooms overlooking the creek are obviously going to be more expensive... More

We stayed for a long weekend, rained some, so we had a good mix of weather. Loved having all the places very close and convenient for food, drinks and entertainment. Our room was very nice, much nicer than we even expected, we even got an upgraded "corner" room. We had a small issue with out tub leaking into the room... More

When booking, look for "premium rooms" preferably second floor. This is a great, small hotel on the water.....not the newest, not a five star.....but a delightful place to park your car and chill out for a day or two on the creek. Will always come back here!

Thank you for your review and offering a little suggestion about room types. It's true that our location is on the water but not all rooms are water view. We offer Creek Premium view, Creek Side (which is partial view) and Traditional which are on the marsh side which is also the parking side of the building. All three offer... More

The location was terrific. We were able to go into downtown Charleston, Sullivan's Island Beach and our son's wedding venue all in under 10 minutes. After spending 2 nights in downtown we spent the rest of our vacation/wedding here. The peaceful mornings spent walking on the boardwalk were priceless. An extra bonus was my boys paddle boarding with the dolphins!... More

It's always great to hear that our guests were able to enjoy all of the things that Shem Creek and Shem Creek Inn have to offer. it just doesn't get any better than seeing the sunset from the boardwalk and sitting on a private balcony and watching the dolphins play. More

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

We appreciate our guest's great feedback regarding their recent stay. We have made improvements to our breakfast by recently adding muffins, yogurt and granola and boiled eggs. We are limited to what we can provide due to no kitchen and minimal storage. We are aware of the condition of our parking lot and have been working with the Town of... 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.
