About Us 



The 2nd and 3rd generations of the Perkins family would like to welcome you and your family to the best kept little ocean front secret in Myrtle Beach. Our Grandmother, fondly known for generations as “Ma Perkins”, opened the family’s first motel here on her own in 1970, the Riviera.  She was quite something, and was truly one of Myrtle Beach’s founding pioneers, working very hard with the other original hoteliers to establish the resort that Myrtle Beach is known world wide for today. Our Dad, David Perkins joined his Mom “Ma” after college and together they operated and built a tremendous business at the Hurl Rock Motel. Our Mom Jane, myself and eventually my brother Rob were too bit by the hotel bug and joined the family business at the Hurl Rock Motel.  We have been offering the cleanest, coziest, best priced accommodations ever since.  In1993 our Dad David fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning an ocean front motel and purchased the Palmetto Motor.  Mom changed the name to the Gazebo Inn, and with a lot of hands on hard work we created what you see today.  The Summerwind was purchased a few years later, so at one point we were operating all three properties.  When Mom and Dad decided to retire or at least semi retire, they sold the Hurl Rock Motel as well as the Summer Wind keeping the Gazebo Inn for Rob and I and future generations to operate.  


The Gazebo Inn is a small ocean front hotel that is located on the very south end of Ocean Blvd.  Our location is perfect.  We are aproximately 1 mile from the Myrtle Beach Airport, a little over a mile from the boardwalk, and within 5 miles of the areas most popluar restuarants and attractions.  We offer free onsite parking (one space per room), no crossing the street to get to your car here!  Most of our rooms have private balconies, and our pool and spa deck sits right on the beach.  You just can't beat the view, and since our location is "grandfathered in" you simply can't get any closer to the surf than we are.


If you are looking for plush accomodations with fancy linens, large flat screen T.V's, multiple pools, lazy rivers, and "free" breakfast WE ARE NOT THE PLACE for you. The Gazebo Inn was built in the 1970's, and is the cozy and nostolgic beach house kind of place that Myrtle Beach was founded on. We are one of the last ORIGINAL AMERICAN FAMILY OWNED and OPERATED MOM & POP hotels left in Myrtle Beach. We pride ourselves in offering the cleanest rooms for the lowest rates in town. We do this by cutting out all of the so called "free " items and extras found at the newer, much higher priced resorts. Just like "Ma" used to say, "There is no such thing as a free lunch". Instead we keep things as basic as possible. We have figured our room rates on the lowest possible cost factor so that you are only paying for what you and your family need as shown here:


Single room rates will cover 1 or 2 adults. Additional adults and children ARE NOT permitted in a single room.


Double room rates will cover up to 2 adults and 2 children, (13 years of age or younger), Additional adult charge is $10 per night plus tax. Additional child (babies count) or children between the ages of 14 - 17 will be an additional $10 per night plus tax. 5 people maximum per room. These fees cover the additional soap, toilet paper, water, linens, ect that will be used above the base figured rate. We do not offer roll-a-way beds or sleep sofas, so plan accordingly.


All of our rooms have at least a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Coffee for your first day will be provided. Additional coffee is provided upon request from housekeeping during room service.


Some of our rooms have efficiency kitchenettes. These rooms will have a basic set up of pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cups, silverware, and a toaster. These kitchenettes are perfect for light cooking such as for breakfast and lunch. Bakeware is not provided. A smaller scale full sized fridge, oven, stove and microwave are included in these units. The housekeepers will give you daily maid service. However, they do not do anything with the kitchens. You will need to have your dishes washed and put away at checkout time. 

We provide your bed linens and bath linens, however we DO NOT supply towels for the pool or beach so bring those with you. Our housekeepers will give you daily housekeeping service. The bed linens will be changed every 3 days. 


Lounge chairs are available at our ocean front pool and spa. You will need to bring your own chairs & umbrellas for the beach if desired. The lifeguards rent them for around $25 - $35 per day for a set of 2 chairs & umbrella. Most folks choose to bring their own.


Due to limited space, we are only able to provide one parking space per room. There is additional off street parking near by if needed.


We offer FREE WIFI to our guests.


That should cover most of the basics. If you have any other questions, please give us a call toll free at 1-800-833-2294. If you are already a repeat guest, we would like to thank you for your continued business.  We would not be able to do all of this without your loyalty.  For those of you that are considering staying with us for the first time, we certainly hope that you and your family will decide to find out why so many of our guest consider us their home away from home and make their beach vacation with us an annual tradition. We would love to see you at the Gazebo Inn Oceanfront!


Warm regards,


The Perkins Family and Gazebo Inn Crew :-)




“Had a great stay at a great price!”

After reading reviews I was a little nervous about staying here but was pleasantly surprised! Our room was small but adequate and very clean. We had a great view of the ocean and were right on the beach. Housekeeping came by everyday and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The hotel only has 55 rooms which I thought was great because its not overcrowded and several times when we went down to the pool there was no one in it so we had it all to ourselves and the beach is not overcrowded. Gazbo inn is in a great location within walking distance to many attractions, restaurants, and shops. All the room are non smoking but you are allowed to smoke on the balconies which I think is good for smokers and non smokers. I was very happy with my stay and didn't want to leave. I would defiantly stay at gazebo inn again!

See what others have to say about us.  We are not prefect but we TRY.  Also, negative comment might come from guests who exhibited rude behavior that is not tolerated in our clean, family oriented hotel and they were made to leave.  They are just trying to get some type of revenge or whatever.
