      Historical Traveler Reviews Shem Creek Inn Mount Pleasant

      Shem Creek Inn, SC and restraunts on creek

      from

      We have been home for just one week and we are ready to go back to Mount Pleasant. The Shem Creek Inn is terrific. The staff very nice. The food at Red's, R.B's, and Vicory's is sooooo good. We ate at the Cabana Bar and it was great - bar just below Shem Creek Inn. Don't bother with Shem Creek Bar and Grill - the food not all that great - service not that great and the most expensive meal we had. If you can find it the Wreck was a blast and food very good.

      The Boat House and Acme Cafe on IOP are WONDERFUL. I can't remember the name of the place just down from the Acme Cafe that is open for breakfast and lunch but it is good also. We missed a few as you can see but if you want good food South Carolina has the BEST there is!!!!!!

      Fantastic Time @ Shem Creek

      from

      I had the extreme pleasure of staying at the lovely Shem Creek Inn in beautiful Charleston, Sc the weekend of 10/8. The hotel is very charming & in a great location-close to some fun restaraunts. Above all, the staff is amazing. The gentleman at the front desk, Shae was very courteous & professional. I felt as though as was around friends. Shae & Derrick were very helpful in recommending fun activities around Charleston. Thanks Shem Creek Inn-I will definitely be back.

      Best Kept Secret

      from

      A Trip Advisor review sparked my interest when looking for a place to stay in the Charleston area--but I was still skeptical until we arrived. It was the perfect getaway, my husband told them when we left if he was ever within a 100 miles he would make it a point to stay at their Inn. Its location to historical Charleston, Sullivan's Island, Patriots Point all within a 10 minute or less drive just added to its charm.

      You must ask to stay on the creek side when you book, it was just great sitting on the balcony watching the shrimp boats come and go along with the local boat traffic. The pelicans and sea gulls were quite entertaining also along with several dolphins we spotted.

      Great restaurants & bars on both sides of the Inn plus across the creek if you care to walk across the bridge. Did venture to Poe's Tavern on Sullivans Island one day (a tip from the staff), the best burgers ever -- a must do if you are in the area. We ate at the Waters Edge one evening just steps from the Inn, the blue lump crap cakes were mouthwatering along with everything else we ordered.

      The staff was quite helpful with anything asked of them. I did read a review that complained of the towels being a bit thin/scratchy -- while they were not thick and soft, they did serve their purpose nicely. The location more than made up for it.

      Pretty good little hotel.

      from

      This was really a pretty nice little hotel. I chose it based on the good reviews it has received, and it didn't disappoint. For the price ($89 mid-week) it was great. Lots of pelicans and laughing gulls flying around, and even the occassional dolphin swimming up and down the creek.

      A couple of things couple be improved upon. The air-conditioner was very loud, the ice machine wasn't working right, and there are only about 10 parking spaces in the garage, so you'll probably have to park in the un-paved lot. Also, (though no fault of the hotel) the bridge going back into Charleston is the scariest one I've ever driven on, long tall and very narrow.

      Overall though, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend it.

      Shem Creek Inn - All around great stay for the price

      from

      If you are seeking a very clean place with good service and good location this is the place. At least 4-5 good seafood restaurants/bars within walking distance. Nice view of the shem creek if you book a waterfront room. Only about 15 min to historic district and the beaches in IOP. A steal for the price! Very nice restaurant and cabana bar on the premises. Would stay here again for sure.

      Shem Creek Inn Rocks

      from

      My girlfriend and I stayed at the Shem Creek Inn for the weekend of April 23-25 2004. I was very pleased with everything. We had a great room with a great view. The location could not have been better. We were surrounded by restaurants and didn't have to drive either night to find good food. The view of the creek was also very, very nice. The only bad thing I can say is that one of the outlets in our room didn't work and we could only have one thing plugged up at a time. Also, we had the Romance package for the weekend which includes a rose, chocolates, a King bed, a jacuzzi size tub, and pink champagne. I hope that we are able to go back later on in the Summer but with more money because I left broke!

      Unpretentious, great location, no bad views

      from

      We were offered Shem Creek Inn as part of a Site 59 package, and were happy with the result. Shem Creek isn?t a fancy place to stay, but it?s clean, easy-going, quiet, ten minutes? drive from both Charleston and Sullivan?s Island, and the towels are fine. Cold breakfast is what you?d expect, but having it at the pool on the creek is a good start to the day. We liked the marsh view, too, as we enjoy seeing tide action and birds. Marsh side is quieter (no pool or boat parties) and less expensive than creek side. All rooms have private balcony.Liked the biz-card-to-luggage-tag service, ask for a hair dryer when you check in. Staff easygoing, gave helpful answers. Luggage carts on ground floor in garage. For those who don?t do steps, elevator to office is there also. Shem?s Creek Bar and Grill (not connected, I think), ? mile across the road and creek (parking precious, consider walking), is great atmosphere, food, really reasonable, get the oysters, crabcakes, orangeade. Sunset cocktails at Vickery?s outdoor bar (heated in cool weather) can?t be beat ? spectacular views and bartenders.

      The Best Little Place I've EVER found

      from

      I found this place on the internet, but was somewhat skeptical. I am so GLAD I chose it. The internet pixs, don't do it much justice! The rooms were so clean & nice, and the staff just as good. Definitely book a "creekside" room. It was so fun to watch all the boats coming & going.

      There is so much day & night life, both in that little area. My 16yr.

      old son never turned on the tv, while we were there, because their was so much else to look at. There are 3 seafood restaurants, right there.

      The 2 we tried were great! We were both so depressed to leave, but plan on going back, really soon.

      Excellent views and atmosphere

      from

      Charming hotel that is excellent place to stay to explore city of charleston. Is within minutes of the beautiful beaches of sullivan's island(favorite place) and downtown charlestown. Hotel has small pool surrounded by a nice deck. An outside bar is available which was open till about midnight on our stay. Hotel is surropunded by seafood restaurants so you don't have to venture far to enjoy wonderful meals.

      We ate at two and recommend the calamari at the Watersedge restaurant adjacent to hotel. Live entertainment available some nights. We had creek view room which was nice it did overlook parking lot but still had beautiful views of marshland. Would definatley recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Shem Creek Inn review

      from

      My family and I stayed at the Shem Creek Inn this past fall. Unfortunately, it was not shrimping season so none of the shrimp trawlers were coming in. There is a nice creekside viewing area and my little girls would have enjoyed seeing that. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable stay. The room was large and clean. Our only complaint would be that the towels were somewhat thin and scratchy. There was a very good continental breakfast. I would recommend staying there, and am making plans to do so again when I am in the area. Chris

      ... to rebuild, then the stock market crash of 29, then it tried to rebuild again, then WWII came, then in the 60's and 70's the suburban drift started happening and the city centre became a ghost town. It was only in the last 20 years or so that it has been finding its feet again. Just in time for our visit!

      After the carriage ride, our last free tour was a 90 minute harbour cruise. This was an obvious choice, as you can't go too far wrong with a cruise. ...

      ... during our road trip, not only did we each have our own bedrooms, we were greeted with wine, chocolate and gifts before bed and breakfast upon waking up. After dropping the blue dragon off at the shop we headed to the Isle of Palms Beach where the water was warm and the sand was white. We enjoyed some wine spritzers, good conversation, a long walk on the beach and ...

      Lazy day today walking around old Charleston including the unspoilt French Quarter and waterfront. Many churches in this town the the attendees all dress up for the occasion like they were off to a wedding. Lunched at a jazz place called High Cotton. Wandered through the markets (quickly in my case). The town has an amazing number of art galleries and ...

There was no electricity in the jail and only the guide had a tiny flashlight as she told us stories of some of the inmates and how their spirits played with them opening windows, closing doors, pushing them and tourists, and pictures people have taken where you can see outlines of people standing where there was nobody. As we continued the walk hushed voices were saying "let me go ahead, I don't want to be at the back". I ...

      ... a diner and they had burgers and fries and a bar so it was a nice atmosphere and good food so I really liked it there. The people that worked there were very welcoming too which was another positive.

      I then went back to my room and relaxed since it had been a long day.

      The next morning, I walked around where the shops were and just enjoyed the warmth as again it was another beautiful day. It was quiet since it was Saturday so to just walk around the streets and enjoy ...
