Great view of the creek and walking distance to a lot of restaurants. Rooms are old and A/C is very noisy. Parking is terrible and staff was not very helpful.

Loved the property and staff. Within walking distance to bars and restaurants.

This property is old. The walls are so thin you can hear everything that goes on in the motel. I felt like I was living in that commercial with the cloggers. I was near the front desk and could everybody. Also I paid for a breakfast which due to the virus I could not receive which I understand but do nothing t charge me for it though. Very disappointed. My son just moved there and I will not be staying her again.

Loved the location. Staff very friendly and helpful.

TV remote was broken with a piece of electrical tape holding it together. Breakfast buffet was a bit sparse. Air conditioning was loud.

Great renevation from the last time I stayed there!

Direct access and/or walking distance to everything on Shem creek! Fishing, kayaking/SUP, bars, restaurants, pier walking - all right there! Fun!!

Great walking access to several restaurants and bars. Fun place!

First read the negative reviews on this hotel and notice most came from years ago, before they remodeled. Our room was very tasteful and modern. We loved the energy of the area with a bar/restaurant steps from us and other ones a short walk across a bridge. Shrimp boats and great long piers for walks or running. Staff was nice and quickly took care of the one small issue we had, and the man in charge of breakfast was a treasure. Would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay. Clean, convenient location to both downtown, Mt. pleasant, and the beach! Beds and linens were very comfortable. Love the views from either side of the hotel. Great to have a fridge and coffee maker and complimentary breakfast. Best of all is the choice of complimentary beverage, including beer, at checkin! The only complaints are lack of comfortable armchair and ottoman in a wide open space in room (maybe others had this?), no safe in room, and no ice scoop in stairwell ice machine. Otherwise, everything was very nice. Had a very pleasant stay and would stay w you again!!

A nice place to stay near downtown and walking distance from some very good seafood restaurants, and the Yorktown.

Reasonably comfortable but desperately need a remodel. Bathroom counter is too low for an average sized person in this decade. The lighting is extremely poor. Very difficult to apply make up or read. Looks very old and tired

Air conditioner and other room noises made sleeping difficult

Wonderful location and great views. The only bad thing was the pancake maker was broke which was a bummer for our kids.

Unfortunately A/C broke down. Room 85'. Managed to sleep. Would rate 5 if had A/C. Hotel is worn ( age) but enjoyable with delightful scenery

We have been to the Shem Creek area many times, for the town park, for the restaurants/bars, for the dolphins, for kayaking. We decided we would like on stay on the Creek this time, instead of on US 17 or in Charleston. We're glad we tried Shem Creek Inn. It was great. We'll be back.

It was a wonderful place to stay. We loved watching the shrimp boats come in and attracting the sea gulls, pelicans, and dolphins. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Definitely a place to stay again.

Although location was decent and the staff was friendly (Mona Lisa really tried to be accommodating), we were disappointed with the ramshackle appearance in and around the property, our room's hairdryer, coffee maker and heater didn't work. And upon requesting an additional blanket for warmth, none were avlbl. No housekeeping or maintenance personnel were avlbl after 5pm. There was no business center for computer or printer usage and the pool is not heated. Breakfast was very simple and mediocre. For $129-, Shem Creek Inn was way overpriced. I wd not have pd over $79- for this room overlooking the marsh/parking lot.

Great location. Staff was very helpful. Room was adequate. AC was noisy.

Thank you for your feedback Anne! We are so pleased to hear that you had a very pleasant stay with us! Thank you for letting us know what you thought we could improve on. We are currently in the hunt for some new armchairs in our King rooms and we are also getting new ice dispensing machines so that a scoop is not necessary. Thank you again Anne and we hope to see you again in the near future!
