Check it out I have stayed here for many years in fact almost since it was new... More

We had only a short visit at Shem Creek Inn, but we'll be back! The front desk was staffed by Marcella when we arrived and by Monalisa when we departed. Both women were professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to go above and beyond the expected competencies to make certain our stay was great! And it was! Such enthusiastic and efficient...

We stayed here for a wedding celebration weekend with our adult children. I found this inn on Trip Advisor. The property is dated. The bathrooms are small but concessions have been made including shower heads and curved shower rods that make it more palatable. It is very clean with fluffy towels. The beds are very comfortable. The things I noticed... More

My wife and I stayed one night. We have stayed here on two previous occasions. Monalisa (front desk) is always very helpful and friendly. We always enjoy the view of the creek. We love the accommodations and the overall atmosphere. We will continue to stay here on our Charleston visits.

We decided to stay at Shem Creek since we had visited the area many years ago. The staff was super friendly and the room was nice and well kept. It has a great view of the canal and an even better pool overlooking the canal. Can't wait to come back!

I highly recommend anyone who is considering staying in Charleston, NC to stay a few miles away in Mt. Pleasant at Shem Creek Inn. It was perfect for our family vacation and the views were gorgeous. Just a few miles from the beach and also downtown Charleston. Perfect location.

Great location---great views & close enough drive to the beach & Charleston. I truly relax at Shem Creek. Staff has been very helpful in making reservations & giving helpful information----especially Mona Lisa most recently in July and also Chris back in June.

Booking at this hotel has been a breeze. Christopher and Mona Lisa have been extremely courteous. We have a large group coming into town, and needed a hotel to accommodate us. We decided to stay at the Shem Creek Inn, largely due to the customer service provided by Christopher and Mona Lisa. Thank you for your patience and your professionalism.... More
