My husband and I love Shem Creek. Close to Charleston, Patriots Point and great restaurants. We stayed at the Shem Creek Inn and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful when needed.

we really enjoyed the two nights we stayed at shem creek inn. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast offered coffee, juice, cereal, waffles, bread and fruit. It was enough to start the day. From the balcony we enjoyed the fishing boats coming and going. People were kayaking and paddle boarding as dolphins swam past. Yes there were bars...

Wish we had followed the advice of other folks who had reviewed the Inn. We should not have stayed there. We were told by the management after we had been there a few hours that the Inn is set to close for renovations during the months of November, December, January and February. The renovations are "much" needed!!!! Our room was...

My husband and I had a three day break and chose to stay at Shem Creek because we wanted something a little different from the normal coast getaway. We found the hotel to be beautiful; public areas were all clean and neat, including the pool. Our room seems to have been redecorated within the past couple of years, and was...

Reviewed 3 August 2016 via mobile

This Inn has so much potential. We stayed for one night at the rate of 139.00 for a creek side room. The view was beautiful. The lobby area is very small... I guess you could call it quaint. The room was spacious and pretty clean. (I am a stickler for cleanliness). The bed was pretty comfortable... Like other reviews mentioned......

The motel lived up to all expectations, and the location is perfect! The staff was very friendly, the room was great. Didn't eat breakfast, but looked like everyone there was enjoying it. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend a stay here.

Hotel was clean, beds are comfortable, air condition was very cold, but the unit was loud. Tristan Green at the front desk provided outstanding customer service. The surroundings were awesome. Pelicans, crabs, watching the shrimp boats, I loved it all.
