Shems creek is a beautiful place to vacation. Lots of thong to do. Only down fall is the parking. The hotel really needs to do something about people parking on their site.. Shems creek is a busy area. But guest who pay to stay their need to be able to park.. also a better breakfast selection would be nice. Like bagels and cream cheese. Instead of muffins..

Great stay
Staff was very friendly and offered the whole family drinks as we arrived. It was a nice family feel and close to many restaurants and activities. We even saw dolphins in the channel.

Great location! Staff was super friendly, loved the accommodations upon arrival. Very welcoming. They kept our luggage safe during the window of check out and flight departure. Just wish they had a better breakfast, but would definitely stay again!

Great location, great pool, rooms ok!
Shem Creek Inn is all about the location and it really is great! Having the pool right on the creek was also a massive plus. It’s obvious the public areas of the hotel have had a substantial face lift and I’d be interested to know if the rooms will be at some point too. I’ll be honest and say the rooms were a bit of a let down compared to the fresh and beach vibe of the reception/lobby etc, especially given the price we paid. But overall a great few days in the best location!

Nice stay at the Shem Creek.
Lovely location on the water. Just minutes away from Charleston by car or water taxi. Several good restaurants in the area.

It’s all about the location
The hotel is showing its age and it could use a good cleaning. But, you can’t beat the location. Multiple restaurants and bars nearby, boats going in and out and just 15-30 minutes from downtown. It’s definitely for people who like to party.
