A dockside hideaway where oyster roasts and beer koozies reign supreme, the Shem Creek Inn radiates coastal South Carolina’s laid-back vibe. Located in Mount Pleasant just minutes from downtown, Shem Creek is Charleston’s backyard paradise; casual, low-key, good-natured. From paddle boarding to ice-cold buckets of beer, fried seafood to dolphin sightings along the dock, the Shem Creek Inn is a local secret that we can’t wait to share. Choose one of 51 guest rooms and suites (all with private balconies) or opt for the ultimate escape aboard our own luxe 55' private yacht, conveniently moored just steps from the action. (This beauty is also available for day trips with your own captain!)

I was in town for a wedding, and loved the Shem Creek Inn. Very clean, nice views and centrally located. The staff were very friendly, courteous & helpful. I would definitely stay there again, if I were visiting Charleston.

First trip to South Carolina and saw the best of it at Shem Creek Inn in Mount Pleasant. Walking into the lobby, I felt relaxed. There were no bad views - we stayed on the "marsh" side. Walked the boardwalk through the marshland and enjoyed beverages on the "creek" side. Fishing

We've been staying here for almost 20 years, it's perfect for us - laid back, comfortable, in close proximity to conveniences. The upgrades are good, nice showers. Every room has a balcony which is really nice if you're from the frigid north but like to be outside. The pier they

"Water side is worth the view"
"creek view is better than marsh"
"Enjoyed marsh side, will try creek side next visit - all have balconies."
"Last year we were on the end by Vickeries and did not have the loud droning noise. This is part of the Shem Creek inn not outside noise."
"Don't go for the "deluxe" creek-side room - it is so noisy you wouldn't want to sit out on the balcony."
