Love the location. Rooms were nice. Bathrooms need updated. Breakfast was just average. Need to add warm foods. Coffee bar excellent. Pool area needs updated. More tables and umbrella's. Deck needs repainted. Roof needs re shingled. All in all we really like it there. Great location. Can see everything thats going on on Shem Creek. We will definitely return. Prices...

I had crab cake, salad, and fried okra. My husband had grilled shrimp, fries, and salad. The balsamic dressing on salad was excellent. The waiter said the secret was honey (I think with clover), but not divulging the secret recipe. In my never ending quest for best crab cakes, Shem Creek is not in top ten. Key Lime House in...

We love Shem creek so we come here every chance we get. Once you arrive you don't have to drive anymore unless you want to. There are several places all around to eat, drink and hang out. You can also walk the pier and fish. Seafood market in the parking lot helps when you need bait for fishing. All of...

Our stay at the Shem Creek Inn was brief -just one night- but enjoyable. We loved the view from the Creekside balcony. The activity on the creek was pure entertainment...dogs and boats and tours etc. Fun. The room was fine although the bathroom really needs some remodeling. The wallpaper was patched...never a good look.

We loved Shem Creek Inn! The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are totally clean. The beds are extremely comfortable. This is the best location! We sat on our balcony and watched the dolphins, the shrimp boats, the pelicans and seagulls. We walked just a few steps away to Waters Edge restaurant and Vickery's restaurant and both are very...

We had such an awesome time staying here! This was our first time to SC, and we came up for a wedding.
