Dear Friends of the Gazebo Inn,


It’s with a great deal of regret and sadness that we announce that we will REMAIN CLOSED for the time being due to the COVID 19 virus crisis.  We hope to reopen June 1st if it is safe to do so. It is CRITICAL for our business and our staff financially that we open our doors immediately, but out of immense concern for the safety of our guests, staff, and loved ones, we have made the very difficult decision to remain closed at this time.  Due to legalities beyond their control, the City of Myrtle Beach has with regret agreed to allow hotels to HONOR EXISTING RESERVATIONS from May 1st - May 15th under some very strict guidelines and conditions. Unfortunately the lack of available sanitizing supplies, PPE gear, and unenforceable and unrealistic requirements make it impossible for us to operate at this time.  So many of you have become like family to us, and out of safety for yourselves and loved ones we encourage you to consider that just because businesses are allowed to open, it doesn’t mean that they should.  


All of you that know us also know that our employees are like family to us, most of whom have been with us for many, many years.  We are doing everything that we can to continue to pay them and to keep the “Little Inn that Could” going...thank you Crystal M. for this endearing nickname!  In order to do this, we are going to need to rely on the understanding and generosity of our guests. If you have reservations during the month of May, we kindly ask you to consider rescheduling your vacation for different dates or agreeing to accept a letter of credit for the full value of your deposit.  Letters of credit will be good towards the balance due of a future stay anytime during the next 2 years. With that said, we also understand that we are all in the same boat and that we are all experiencing financial hardships at this time. If you are unable to reschedule or accept a letter of credit for your deposit, we certainly understand and we will be happy to issue a refund for you upon request.


We will be doing our best to reach out to all of you that have reservations during the month of May that have NOT already been cancelled.  If we have already spoken with you, there is no need to call. Most of the letters of credits were mailed this week, and the rest will be going out today.  For those of you that have been waiting, we appreciate your patience while we were working hard to work out all of these details associated with this global crisis.


Lastly, all of your Gazebo Inn family would like to wish you and your family good health and safety during the difficult days and weeks ahead.  We are a resilient Nation, and we have no doubt that by working together and helping one another we will prevail. We will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers, and we will do our very best to keep you updated on how things are going here.  We MISS all of you, and we are all looking forward to the day when we are able to safely welcome you back to your beach home away from home.


All our best,


Julie, Rob & the rest of the Gazebo Inn Family 



                                Welcome to the Gazebo Inn         

The second & third generations of the Perkins family would lilke to welcome you to one of the last family owned and operated hotels in Myrtle Beach.  "Ma Perkins" opened our first hotel here in 1970, and we have been offering low priced family friendly accommodations ever since. The Gazebo Inn is a clean, cozy, quiet, nostolgic  ocean front hotel that is located right on the beach, giving all of our guests a true ocean front vacation experience that is second to none. Our location is also fantastic, and very close to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, Broadway at the Beach, Market Common, Myrtle Beach International Airport, the Myrtle Beach State Park, many fabulous restaurants and great entertainment. We cater to families & couples 21. Singles have to be at least 25 years of age, making for a quiet, family friendly vacation destination. 

If you are looking for fancy linens, large flat screen T.V's, multiple pools, lazy rivers, "free breakfast", shampoo, and room service, we are NOT the place for you.  If you are however looking for the quaint and cozy "basic" nostalgic experience that only a "Mom & Pop" kind of hotel can offer complete with friendly service, clean rooms, and of course the lowest rates in town then the Gazebo Inn should be your next vacation destination.  We pride ourselves in being the best value at the beach, and we do so by cutting out all of the so called "free extras"  that the fancy resorts offer in their much higher priced rooms.  Many of our guests have been staying with us for years, and many of those we are now seeing in second and third generations.  If you are already a repeat guest, we would like to thank you for your loyal patronage.  We could not do all of this without your continued support.  For those of you that are just finding us, we sincerely hope that you will give us a try and see for yourselves why we are still the best kept little secret in Myrtle Beach

Our amenities include free onsite parking (one parking space per room), onsite guest laundry facility, free WIFI, a newly refurbished elevator, interior hallways for your convenience and security, direct ocean front pool and hot tub for your enjoyment, direct beach access, private balconies with rocking chairs on all ocean front rooms, and private balconies on most other room types.  In addition, all of our rooms come equiped with at least a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and hair dryer.  All of our ocean front rooms have irons and ironing boards.  Irons and ironing boards are available for all other rooms that can be signed out from the front desk.  Rooms with kitchenette's are also available.  All of our rooms are NON-SMOKING, however you may smoke on the balcony or in designated outdoor areas. The best part of all is that the Gazebo Inn sits RIGHT ON THE BEACH.  In fact we are "grandfathered in" and sit closer to the water than most ocean front properties are able to do.  You just can't beat our view or the sound of those waves breaking on the sand. 

We are pretty “retro” with our booking process as well. Sorry, NO ONLINE BOOKING here.  So many of our guests have specific requests, etc so we have found that the old fashioned personal touch works best for our little place.  Please give us a call today to talk about your vacation plans. Since we are NOT set up for online bookings TRIP ADVISOR and any other ONLINE BOOKING SERVICE will always SHOW NO AVAILABILITY.  Remember that often times is NOT the case.  Please CALL us toll free at 1-800-833-2294 to discuss your vacation plans with one of us.  We would love to hear from you. BE SURE TO CLICK ON OUR REVIEW TAB to connect directly to Trip Adisor to view our current awesome reviews.  I have to say that we are pretty proud of those. We invite you and your family to come and find out for yourselves why so many of our guests make staying with us an annual tradition.  Please be sure to click on our FAMOUS CASH SPECIALS and SPECIAL EVENTS tabs too while visiting our website, and of course don't forget to "like us" on Facebook.  We hope to see you at the beach in the very near future!

Warmest of Regards,

Julie  (Unruly Julie), Rob (Reckless Rob) and our Incredible & Gazebo Inn Crew~

“Best Mom & Pop Place In Town”

We was very skeptical last year when booking, however this was probably the best experience ever. The staff was amazing, house keeping was awesome, anything you need just ask! The only downfall was it it super hot in the hallways and the steps. Dont judge a book by its cover for sure. Not what you expect! Not what you expect! We have already booked for this year!!!!! See you all in June!!!!!!!

"Best Week Ever!"

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Gazebo Inn a few times and we absolutely loved it! The staff was very nice and accommodating, the private balconies are a great touch, and the rooms were very clean. We have stayed at the Gazebo Inn both during the summer and winter months, and no matter the season, fantastic experience!
