Superbly located on the Shem Creek. Watch the shrimp boats return after a busy day shrimping, accompanied by the dolphin and pelican. Then pop down to a local restaurant and eat the shrimp. Good facilities and easy access to Charleston, Fort Sumter and Patriots Point.

Ideally situated in Mount Pleasant next to the creek, this hotel has a high standard and very good service. There was plenty of space in the King size bedroom and it had a good sized bathroom. Close proximity to bars and restaurants along the creek, it was a great place to spend the weekend. We would certainly recommend it!
