First time I have stayed at Shem Creek Inn since the completion of the renovation and the changes are fantastic. Totally new rooms and bathrooms. Service has always been great, but it is clear that with the new rooms and renovated lobby and pool areas that the staff are even more enthusiastic as they offer every guest checking in a...

My daughter and I decided to stay at ShemCreek because of the convenient location Isle of Palms and Charleston.....I would have given it 5 Stars but The bathroom was too small with only a shower....we both would like a tub ....the plus is the patron outside the room overlooking the creek as the boats come and go and the nice...

First time here and was very impressed with the attention to making their remodel look bright and inviting. The open air feeling of the main lobby and reception area do a lot to bring in the pool as well as Shem Creek which is located within footsteps of the Inn. Bright and clean bathrooms, plenty of water pressure. Keurig and...

Small but fabulous Charleston charm right on Shem Creek. Family-oriented with nice, freshly updated and renovated hotel/rooms with a small bit clean pill overlooking the creek. Walking distance to several awesome seafood restaurants, which beautifully light up the peaceful creek in the evening. Shrimp boats and other fishing boats dot the docks. The ambiance gets a bit loud at dinner...

This was a return trip to Shem Creek Inn, but it was the first trip back since they have renovated the property. The updates are great. The rooms and the entire property has a very inviting motif that allows for a relaxed and comfortable stay.

We probably have stayed at this hotel five times, as it is close to the women's tennis tournament held nearby in April. I did love the new look. However, the breakfast area needs to be reconfigured: The food, toaster, coffee makers, etc.are in in such close proximity that only a few people can get breakfast at one time. Our room...

This was our second stay at the Shem Creek Inn. It has just been redone and it is very pleasantly decorated with a nautical theme. We were disappointed that our creek side room was on the first floor. It also was right next to the pool which was full of people on this lovely March afternoon. It was loud and...

We spent five nights here and couldn't have been more pleased! When you walk in that lobby, a very personable employee is there to check you in and give you a choice of two beers, (Hubby - "you got me at beer" - especially after a long eight hour drive!) or soda and water. Our room partially overlooked the pool...
