Shem Creek Inn was a great choice for our family's first visit to the Charleston area. The facilities themselves are very good and the staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel room is equipped with microwave and mini fridge and the Inn provides a simple, albeit adequate, continental breakfast. The room itself is spacious and has a great balcony! We... More

We are pleased that this guest enjoyed their recent stay with us and were able to enjoy all the conveniences of our location. Being only 4 miles from downtown and 4 miles to local beaches makes Shem Creek Inn a fabulous choice this summer. More

We chose the Shem Creek Inn because of a previous enjoyable stay many years ago. We had a corner king room (212) facing the creek, next to the Water's Edge Restaurant and Bar. We were immediately concerned about noise since we were just above the outside eating and bar area. The desk clerk assured us that it would not be... More

Thank you for your informative review. With our location in close proximity to the local restaurants and lounges, there is more activity and noise on the water side of the building. Summer time even more so, with increased occupancy and everything going on outdoors. Many of our guests enjoy the location over the Cabana Bar as they enjoy people watching... More

So glad we found this place. Saw dolphins while dining next door. Creek side was awesome with our private balcony. Can't wait to come back. Service was great, room was perfect. Great stay in a new place for us. Patriot Point has lots to see and do.

We picked the Shem Creek Inn because it was close to our rental home that we were going to work on all week. The rooms were adequate on initial inspection, but nothing special. However, when I laid down on the bed, I instantly developed back pain. The sag in the mattress was so deep that it was easily visible. We... More

We are looking into this guests comments about the bed and will make sure to replace accordingly. Thank you for letting us know and I'm sorry that this was a discomfort during your stay. Please know that we are looking at adding several items to our breakfast though due to lack of storage space and no kitchen on the property,... More

Stayed two nights earlier this month and really enjoyed it here. Loved the views of Shem Creek and being able to walk the docks of Shem Creek Park which was footsteps from the hotel. Room was spotless, comfortable and nicely decorated. Was nice having the mini-fridge and microwave in the room. No issues with noise from neighboring restaurants (also a... More

If you are visiting the Charleston area, this unassuming location could be your best choice. It's surrounded by great seafood restaurants. The scenery on Shem Creek is the perfect place for hobbyist photographers. The room and service exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a hotel without the parking hassles, traffic and crowds of downtown Charleston, this is your... More

Had fun here. Came on business, loved the waterfront restaurant and bar. Service was good and so was the food. I will come back for a weekend visit with my wife. Close to Charleston, but not in the crowded area.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Shem Creek Inn. Robbi, the general manager, was amazing and very hospitable. I look forward to my next stay here. This goes without saying, I would definitely recommend this Inn!

After checking the reviews online, I felt safe staying the night with my two small children. When I arrived it was very late and after we got into our room, I got us unpacked and the playpen up for my youngest. When I got them into their pajamas I pulled back the sheets and I was in total disgust and... More

This is our 2nd time in the last 10 years staying at this hotel. We like the location and it's close to Sullivan's Island and Charleston. There are 2 restaurant's within walking distance-Vickery's and Water's Edge, both of which have excellent food and service. There is a park next door with a boardwalk over the creek, it is very well... More
