I'm here.. Right now writing this review and this place smells like an ashtray. It knocks you over when you walk in the room. Now you might think I'm being harsh but this review is from a smoker. The staff is disgruntled, at best. Now I know the manager will post some response to this review about how sorry he... More

I make a concientious effort to respond to each guest review to let our customers know that their opinions are valued and are not going un-noticed. I respect all of our wonderful customers and try to remedy any situations during a guest's stay rather than making aplologies after their departure. I know we were at capacity this past weekend and... More

I'm not going to bother with the lack of updating (key system from the 70's, noisy luggage and hskp carts) Those things are budget issues and in this economy, I get that we use what we have. What bothered me was the complete lack of service from check-in to check-out. Desk was unmanned almost the entire stay, and we got... More

As the General Manager, this was a difficult review to read through. It is extremeley unfortunate that the staff failed this guest from check in time to check out. We work hard in training our staff compassion and empathy in regards to our customers needs and indeed we truly failed this customer. Further, it is my intentions to address the... More

I stay at the Shem Creek Inn frequently for business. They offer an excellent frequent users club rate. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed for business travel and the location is great. But one of the best things about this hotel is the customer service! The employees are always happy to assist in making your stay pleasant. On a... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Shem Creek Inn. The rooms were nicely decorated, with luxurious bedding and towels, We had a view of the harbor which was beautiful. I would rate this Inn with the more expensive hotel chains. The staff were friendly, rooms were great, bedding very comfortable and it was near everything, If it wasn't for the... More

We made the mistake to stay at this hotel. The loud party in the room next door went on until 4:30 in the morning. Every word spoken in that room was heard in our room along with slamming doors and pounding. Management's response is that they made a call to the room at 3:30 a.m to ask the group to... More

We appreciate guest feedback such as this review. This has been the focus of our recent customer service training. As we prepare for the busy season, it is necessary to know how to handle difficult situations. Disturbances that interfere with other guests are important to us. In this situation, the noisy guests were contacted from a front desk staff member.... More

The staff helpfulness , friendliness, and location are what this hotel is all about. Location is close to downtown Charleston. The hotel has a restaurant on each side of it, making it very convenient if you don't feel like driving. Feel like driving? Tons of restaurants on the main boulevard and a short driving distance to Sullivan Island where there... More

My wife and I were visiting Charleston in November and were looking for someplace a bit different to spend our last 3 nights. Shem Creek Inn is right on a small river (more of an inlet, really) and, if you get a room on the creek side, you have a nice view of the water, boats, etc. from your balcony.... More

The rooms with the creek view all have balconies where you can overlook the creek and see all that is going on ( Boats arriving, Dolphins and Pelicans) , there are several very good restaurants and bars within walking distance and the Isle of Palms is only a short drive away. We were very happy with our stay.

We reserved a room with a king size bed, garden tub, and beautiful view. We arrived to a room with 2 full beds, stained comforters, and a thick cloud of smoke. The receptionist was able to switch us to another similar room, minus the smoke since we were traveling with an infant. The view of the parking lot was not... More

I was sorry to hear of the room type discrepancies during this guests stay. I did find that at the time of booking, we had no more of the room type requested on the marsh side. In hopes to appease the guest, we upgraded them to a water view room which is the more attractive view though it was not... More
