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...

I have frequented Shem Creek Inn over the past few years and couldn't imagine why anyone would choose to stay anywhere else. But now, WOW!! The hotel just finished a renovation to the entire property and increased their offerings... they are now offering a complimentary local craft beer or water check-in. Talk about hitting the nail on the head! No...

Renovations look great! The entire hotel has a new modern feel! Rooms were comfortable and clean, and the staff was wonderful! We would recommend Shem Creek for a local weekend getaway or vacation in the Charleston area. We will definitely be back again!

We booked there for the creek view and the location. They have done some updating so it was reasonably priced. If you want fancy go some where else. This an older hotel/motel that has a great Shem Creek view and lots of restaurants all around it.
