Whenever I go to Charleston, we always stay at Shem Creek Inn. You can't beat the value and location! Since we're not into the "partying" scene any longer, we prefer the Marsh views over the creek views. But it is alot of fun to watch all of the action on the creekside! Everything is right there...bars, restaurants, swimming pool, and water activities. This place definately puts you into vacation mode! Very convenient to Charleston. Rooms are clean, comfortable beds. Love their free WI FI service too. Very nice front desk staff. Breakfasts aren't anything special. Would be nice if they have an evening hors d'ouevres/happy hour.
