Shem Creek Inn was ideal for our stay. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, beautiful water view with boats, paddle boarders, sea birds...the pool...the lively restaurants on Shem Creek, comfortable room, and the short drive to the beach, downtown Charleston, and Boone Plantation. We wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else other than Shem Creek Inn on Shrimp Boat Lane! Thank you to the staff including Marcella and Monalisa--always friendly and very helpful.

Shem creek is one of the most beautiful in the area. The view is wonderful. We were disappointed with our room this stay. The bed was broken and the bathroom door would not close. With some much needed repairs this place could be number 1 again.

What a great time my family group of ten had a Shem Creek! The condition of and view from all our rooms was excellent! Monalisa at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. We loved the pelicans on their posts and the shrimp boats, we saw dolphins every day, we loved walking the boardwalks zigzagging across the beautiful marsh seeing the fiddler crabs and talking to fishermen.along the way. Shem Creek definitely delivered a comfortable stay with lots of local flavor to soak in. It had a small breakfast area, but that was the only drawback for us. We hated to leave and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The rooms with a view of Shem Creek are definitely worth it!

This location is the best in Charleston, close to everything, and if you have a good chiropractor at home cause you're going to need them after your stay or if you don't mind sleeping in a hammock for a bed at these prices. Check it out I have stayed here for many years in fact almost since it was new and love the property and the rooms. However, we hadn't been in a few years. But now you pay resort prices for low end facilities. They have not invested back into the property for a long time as it appears. It's too bad cause the whole staff is top shelf! From the front desk to housekeeping. Hopefully management will wake up and put the money in this place to make it great again.

We had only a short visit at Shem Creek Inn, but we'll be back! The front desk was staffed by Marcella when we arrived and by Monalisa when we departed. Both women were professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to go above and beyond the expected competencies to make certain our stay was great! And it was! Such enthusiastic and efficient service makes a hotel stay pleasant. The waterway was beautiful, the rooms clean, and our stay terrific! We WILL be back!

Room Tip: The rooms have balconies and overlook the beautiful creek and waterway!

My husband and I have been choosing the Shem Creek Inn for our weekend getaway for four years in a row now.... Sometimes twice if we are Lucky! We love the quaint, tranquil surroundings. The rooms are spacious and clean. We love the view from the balcony overlooking the pretty pool and Shem Creek. We just set back in our chairs at night and listen to the music and nightlife coming across the creek and seeing the boats docked at the seafood restaurants and the smell of the sea..... We will continue to come back because the beautiful views.... great service!!!! Shout out to Mona Lisa!!!! You are Awesome!!!! Come visit!!!! You will not be disappointed!
