June 9, 2020

Hello Gazebo Inn Family!  I think that it is safe to say that 2020 has been beyond anything that any of us could have ever imagined.  All of us have been affected by the tragedies that the year has brought to us in one way or another, and we greatly appreciate all of you that have reached out to us with your support and prayers. Rest assured that you have been kept in ours as well.

 

With that said, we are BEYOND THRILLED to announce that we have opened our doors and we are ready to welcome back our beloved guests to the LITTLE INN THAT COULD….thank you Crystal for our favorite term of endearment ever!  

 

The health and safety of our guests and staff remains of the highest importance to us, so we have implemented some new policies and procedures that meet all of the CDC and SCDHEC’s guidelines and requirements pertaining to operating during the COVID 19 crisis.  If you have existing reservations or if you are considering a stay with us this season, please take a few minutes to review the information below.  

 

We would like to ask any of our guests that are planning a stay with us to PLEASE MAKE A RESERVATION by CALLING 1-800-833-2294. We are only allowing one guest in the office at a time, so by making an advanced reservation you not only are assured that you will have a room when you arrive, but doing so also will allow us to be better prepared for your stay.  It also gives us the tools to make your check in process as fast and as efficient as possible. Additional important information regarding your stay will also be given to you at the time of booking. The phones are very busy so if we don’t pick up when you call and you are calling between regular business hours, please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as we get off the other line. Any messages left after 10PM will be returned the next morning.  Our reservation department is open between the hours of 8 AM and 10PM DAILY. 

 

Our pool is now OPEN, however the HOT TUB WILL REMAIN CLOSED for the remainder of the 2020 season.  SCDHEC recommends practicing social distancing and maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from anyone that is not in your party while in the pool or on the pool deck.  We ask all guests to respect these guidelines for the safety of all.  Please remember to bring plenty of beach towels for use at the pool and beach. The use of beach towels on the pool lounge chairs is recommended as always.

 

The CDC has REQUIRED that we REMOVE all DISHES, SILVERWARE, COFFEE CUPS. GLASESSES, COOKWARE, COFFEE POTS AND TOASTERS out of ALL KITCHEN UNITS, and the COFFEE MAKERS out of all standard rooms.  WE ARE ALSO NOT ALLOWED TO SERVE COFFEE IN THE OFFICE at this time, SO PLEASE BE SURE TO BRING your own COFFEE, COFFEE MAKER, TOASTER, COOKWARE, DISHES, SILVERWARE, CUPS AND GLASSES if you wish to have use of such items during your stay with us. Again this is a REQUIREMENT that was put in place by the CDC that we must follow. We regret that no exceptions can be made to this policy. 

 

In accordance with the CDC guidelines, we are limiting the NUMBER OF PEOPLE ALLOWED IN A ROOM to a maximum of 2 people to a bed or up to 4 people for a double and 2 people to a single.  Because of the size of our rooms, air mattresses will no longer be allowed.  Again, this policy follows the CDC Covid-19 Guidelines.  

 

We are offering our guests the option of either FULL HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE, or LIMITED HOUSEKEEPING service.  For full service you will be asked to vacate the room while the housekeeper is working.  For limited service we will have a linen cart available to you for your soiled linen and your housekeeper will provide you with a new set up as needed during the hours of 8:30 AM and 2 PM daily.  We have the same friendly and professional housekeeping crew that we have had for years, and they have all been trained in special Covid-19 disinfecting and sanitation practices.  . All of them will be wearing masks and other PPE protection while working.

 

Because of the additional time needed to thoroughly clean and disinfect each checkout, we are asking all of our guests to be mindful of leaving the room in reasonable condition the day that you depart,  and to be sure to vacate your room on your departure day no later than the required 11 AM checkout time.  Sorry, late checkouts cannot be considered at this time,  By all of us working together, we will be able to operate with the same number of staff members as we did prior to the Covid-19 restrictions.  Keeping our costs down of course will allow us to  keep our rates LOW, a WIN WIN for us all!  Please note that A CREDIT CARD WILL BE REQUIRED AT CHECK IN FOR ALL ROOMS and will be kept on file to cover the cost of extensive cleaning or damages when warranted.

 

Masks will not be required to be worn by guests, however the CDC does still recommend that masks be worn in public.  There are some local businesses that will require you to wear a mask, so it’s best to be prepared and bring some with you.  Most everything has opened back up.

 

WOW!!!  That just about wore me out!!!  Now that we have all of that straight,  let me say that we have MISSED ALL OF YOU very much, and we feel so fortunate and blessed to be able to welcome y’all back to your beach home away from home!  We are so GRATEFUL for YOU, your loyal business and friendship, and we hope that we will be seeing you once again in the very near future!  These are such trying times, but we believe that if we all stick together we WILL get through this!  Until we meet again at the beach......

 

Warmest Regards,

Julie, Rob & Gazebo Inn Crew

 

 

 

 

 

                                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~
