Newly renovated. Beautiful location. We had a relaxing peaceful stay. Needs parking spots and passes for guests to park close to hotel. If you stay make sure to stay on the second floor because the first floor can be somewhat loud at night. The breakfast is not fancy but meets your needs and the staff are super nice and helpful....

The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and the beds were comfy. Breakfast was warm and filling. Lots of things to see and do close by. The only draw back was the unheated pool, but that's not enough to give this place a bad rating! Definitely will return her and recommend to everyone!!

We LOVED this hotel! It was decorated beautifully with coastal decor and was one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in. There were four or five options for dining and entertainment within walking distance. Highly recommend this hotel!!!

We stayed for four nights and used the hotel as a base on our March Break trip to Charleston. The room was crisp and clean and I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the whole hotel. We had a lovely view of the creek and pool from our large balcony. The breakfast buffet had lots of options, scrambled eggs,...

We stayed here initially because of the location; right on the water and close to Charleston. The hotel looks great with the recent renovations, it was nice having our own balcony. The staff was very accomodating and helped us around the area. I'll definitely be coming back in the future!

We have always loved the Shem Creek Inn, it closed for renovations last year and recently reopened and We LOVE it even more now. They changed everything, added a dining room for breakfast off the very nice lobby, new carpet and flooring and a great exterior change for the outside. The rooms are very nice now, the colors, appointments, beds...

Talk about hitting the nail on the head! No...
