Shem Creek Inn was a wonderful place to stay. It's close to everything - beach, plantation house, Charleston. It's small and cozy, much better than big commercial hotels. The view of Shem Creek is wonderful! We paid for premium view and it was definitely worth it! Walked into the room after check in and watched dolphins swimming in the creek! Ate breakfast out on our balcony every morning. Had a fridge and microwave that worked well. Very quiet room. Did not hear any noise all night long. Air conditioning worked great!
Staff was even better than location! Front desk was very helpful with suggestions or to find anything you needed. They really made us feel welcome. Lauren was the best!
They serve breakfast but it is very basic. Doughnuts, bagels, cereal... Lobby is very small so you pretty much have to take it to your room.
Only bad part was the cleanliness of our room. Bathroom and beds were fine. No bugs. But a lot of prior guests trash was found (in drawers, by wall behind nightstand, and under bed.) This does not really upset me but I know some people would find it awful.
Never turned on the tv. (Left my husband at home....hahaha) We also never found out how to use the Internet. I think hotel offers it but we didn't bother asking. Maybe a binder in the room with instructions as well as information on nearby restaurants and attractions would be a good idea!
