We have come here often, we had requested the "premium creek side king bed, with garden tub and wrap around balcony". The woman at the front desk put us in premium king bed room. I asked about it and showed my confirmation papers, she said to wait for the manager. When the manager came, his name is Christopher, he was... More

Stopped over or a night on the way to Savannah. We are always greeted and welcomed warmly. Robbie is very accommodating and friendly. We will return often, as always. Creek side rooms have a spectacular view and the food at the Waters Edge is wonderful.

As stated in previous reviews, the inn has dated wallpaper and it's aged and rustic but it has charm and was clean and looked great to me. great service and comfy beds and loud cold air conditioning To drown out any other normal noise. Everything was close and convientient to bars and restaurants. Loved the balcony and the boardwalk at... More

We stayed here for 6 nights a couple of weeks ago, breaking our train trip from New York to Savannah. The Amtrak station was way out of town so we arrived by taxi. We subsequently found it challenging to get about without a car. Unfortunately the waterbus no longer goes to the creek. There was a nearby local bus (called... More

Thank you for your review. We welcome feedback from our customers and you provided some great input. We do have limited storage and limited space in regards to our breakfast not something easily changeable. While we certainly appreciate the comment about converting a room to enlarge the breakfast area, this simply isn't possible due to us being a condo-hotel and... More

Stayed here for 7 nights in room 218 on the river side. Was pleasantly surprised at how well the sliding doors kept out most of the noise from the restaurants/bars in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were very comfortable (I loved the bed, my husband didn't). Enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the boats, kayaks... More

Our new balcony doors do eliminate a lot of the sounds that come from the creek activity. Being surrounded by restaurants and lounges with live entertainment adds to this. Glad you found them to be beneficial. I'm sorry about the boarding passes. Our Guest Service Representative simply needed to go to the airline site and type in your code. It... More

Rooms comfy and clean. I could complain about the parking but honestly the wonderful stay makes the parking issue no big deal for me.. Cant... More

Fantastic that you were pleasantly surprised with your accommodations. Our location is truly one of the best outside of downtown Charleston and perfect for those that want to visit but not stay in the heart of the city. Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. More

We have stayed here several times and always have a good time. You can have a choice of either Creek or Marsh. We prefer the Creek view. The Inn has a good size pool and offers complimentary breakfast. As far as lunch or dinner choices, you have two. On one side of the Inn is a fine dining restaurant and... More

We are very pleased that you enjoy your stays with us. We are nestled between two great restaurants though there are five great seafood restaurants within walking distance. Views are amazing and our location is in close proximity to down town and area beaches. Thank you for your comments and we'll see you again soon. More

The Shem Creek Inn is a hidden jewel just north of Charleston. Large rooms, creek side and marsh side. Microwave and refrigerator in each room. Friendly staff. Good service . We have been coming here each summer for 10 years. Many fine food opportunities in the area.

This is my second review. My husband and I stayed here in May on our way home from a family wedding in Savannah. We checked into our room only to find a maintenance issue, went to the front desk and after much discussion we were moved to another room.
