We have stayed many times in years past at Shem Creek Inn, so we were looking forward staying there after the big remodeling job. It looks great! Clean, comfortable entry way and check in area. Very inviting. The breakfast are is very nice. They had scrambled eggs and bacon, along with bagels, yogurt, fruit, etc. The room was beautiful. We...

First time here and was very impressed with the attention to making their remodel look bright and inviting. The open air feeling of the main lobby and reception area do a lot to bring in the pool as well as Shem Creek which is located within footsteps of the Inn. Bright and clean bathrooms, plenty of water pressure. Keurig and...

I suspect that not many people visit both the Sanctuary hotel on Kiawah Island and the Shem Creek Inn on the same trip, but we did exactly that and here's the funny thing, they were both excellent (albeit in very different ways). Our first few days at the Sanctuary were everything that we could have expected, classy, upmarket, spacious, manicured...

Very nice hotel. I wouldn't pay the extra for the King luxury next time because of lack of privacy due to the restaurant dining area directly below the balcony. People are very nice that work there. I would suggest that you check out items such as the beds for comfort and that the hot water works in the shower. We...

We had a wonderful time, great service and the boardwalk was a refreshing romantic evening walk, the balcony view was even better! We were so pleased to see the dolphin, we look forward to seeing them every time we visit. Seeing the dolphins during dinner at Waters Edge restaurant was a special treat!

We came here for 2 nights for a wedding. Once we parked the car we did not need it again - there were great restaurants and bars within walking distance. Great views all around. Amazing front desk service.

Front lobby staff was very friendly. Housekeeping on the other hand was sloppy. Trash was not removed on a daily basis, floor was not vacuumed during the entire stay. Their breakfast was the same on a daily basis.
