We had no problems, but the hotel had a few flaws that disappointed. The parking area is in sad condition. It's unpaved and there are fewer than ten spots in the only nicer area under the building. We selected this hotel for the balcony (which overlooked the bleak dirt parking lot) and the fact that the bathroom boasted a tub... More

The Inn had a fantastic rate offer for the holidays and since it is one of our favorites we booked it for one night pre-cruise. As always, front desk was courteous, room was clean,standard bathroom amenities, very comfortable bed. The mudslide parking lot has been mentioned many times,so no need to be repeating the bad reviews about that. Only negative... More

This is an older but very well maintained hotel on Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Just a 7 minute drive to downtown Charleston and minutes away from first class shopping and dining locally. We have stayed in the Charleston area many times and this is the hotel we would return to. Only negative is the continental breakfast is light.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shem Creek Inn. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was nice with clean bathrooms. Our room faced the creek and had a fabulous view. The adjacent restaurant and bar had great deals on drinks and appetizers (read great fresh seafood!) during happy hour. This is a great, budget friendly location close... More

We stayed two nights just before New Years 2014.Rooms are pretty basic, old, motel style rooms. But, our balcony overlooked the all the bustling restaurants and bars in the are and all were within walking distance- we especially like the Water's Edge Bar (literally ten feet from the front door of the hotel. It is in a very cool, old... More

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
