Renovations look great! The entire hotel has a new modern feel! Rooms were comfortable and clean, and the staff was wonderful! We would recommend Shem Creek for a local weekend getaway or vacation in the Charleston area. We will definitely be back again!

We booked there for the creek view and the location. They have done some updating so it was reasonably priced. If you want fancy go some where else. This an older hotel/motel that has a great Shem Creek view and lots of restaurants all around it.

The newly renovated Inn is warm and inviting, as was Amanda at the front desk who made sure we had everything we needed.
