We booked a room here, avoiding both the high cost and craziness of staying in Charleston. It was an excellent move; the room was clean, large, balcony, refrigerator and microwave. Morning breakfast included fresh fruit and very good coffee, bottled water and bagels or English muffins, cereal, etc. Outside was a boardwalk that provided a walkway over the marshes, very relaxing after the frenzy of Charleston, just across the bridge--about a 7 minute car ride. My husband and I are quite picky, but we both agree that Shem Creek Inn was a very good choice.
