Have wanted to stay at this location for a while. Had a conference to attend in Charleston so took the plunge. Great location, 10 minutes to downtown, beaches. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Arrived late afternoon, very tired, check in was easy. The young lady at the desk was very friendly and when I went down later to chat about... More

I booked this hotel while heading south from NJ to Atlanta upon a great recommendation from a hotel manager in Virginia, who stays here when she visits Charleston. I wanted to stay outside of the city, but closeby. This location was ideal to get around to the entire area easily. The rates were reasonable. I booked one night at this... More

Had made reservations on line for 2 nights. later discovered we could arrive a day earlier and called the inn direct to see if they could accommodate. Christopher went far beyond expectations to work it out. Upon arrival, we encountered another problem, not of the inn's making, and Christopher made everything work out to the thrill of 4 weary travelers.... More

We've been to Charleston many times and were looking for a different experience for a quick overnight, without getting caught in the fray of the city. Shem Creek Inn was a nice surprise. An older inn, but charming, situated right in the middle of a selection of restaurants, bars, and "nightlife", as well as having the water and nature right... More

Easy to get to and from, quiet rooms and a staff that goes out of their way to provide hospitable service. The continental breakfast could use an upgrade or two but over all this property is a good value of the money spent.

We originally tried to find a hotel in downtown Charleston, but found them much too costly. When we found the Shem Creek Inn, we hoped it was as good as it sounded, and it was! The staff was very friendly-Wendy was absolutely the best! The free continental breakfast was just right (No soggy eggs or rubber pancakes.) Bagels, english muffins,... More

Was more than pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Great location, great views, welcoming staff (Chad & Wendy). Inn is a bit dated but clean, comfortable and in a great location. Creek side, second floor is the best. All room have balconies. There's even "real" Kleenex in the room AND beige towels vs. the standard white (boring). Simple but good continental breakfast....

This place is very nice and quiet. A little outdated but still nice. Beds sleep well and it was clean. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is because of the woman who was checking us in. She was rude and very hard to deal with. I was one day late to my check in (had... More

We were there for a one night stay, and we will return. We were very happy with our room on the creek side. A lot of activity (even on Sunday evening) The staff was A+++. Very nice. We loved the views from our deck and all the activity across the creek.

A wonderful location with a whole different feel from downtown Charleston - well worth the few minutes it takes to drive over the bridge. Good restaurant choices very close. Rooms are very reasonably priced, cozy, quiet and clean. Entire staff was really helpful & super friendly. Would return again just for staff.
