“A Family Owned Hotel that feels like home...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

We have stayed twice at this smaller hotel. I put in a search for family hotels and this and the Blockade Runner at Cherry Grove came up. I like the idea of helping out a smaller business and like learning the people who run it. Plus this hotel has large rooms, not fancy but clean and the bed in 1515 was huge and comfortable to 2 people who desperately needed some rest without the all the bother of having to drag our belongings across the street. (Which I hate!!!!!)
The sweet young woman who was cleaning the rooms was nice to talk to and seemed very happy with her job, which leads me to believe that this family takes good care of their employees. I work 2 jobs in the customer service area and I know how hard her job is....
Not a lot of flash and glitz, but simple, clean, and comfortable and great rates!!!!!!!
The family had to take the hotel back over after the people they sold it to had to default so their lives have changed and they are having to readjust and make changes in the hotel too...
So thanks again Ms Jean, and everyone give this hotel a chance!!!! ( Just treat it with the care that the family gives so all of us can be lucky to enjoy it for years to come)

Room Tip: The room we were in was 1515. Large, bright , no curtains, but nice blinds so if you need to get up...

Thank you for your review. We ARE ONE of the FEW "mom and pop" motels left in myrtle beach. Yes, a small business appreciates and needs support from guests like you. We try to treat our employees and guests like we would like to be treated. We had to take back the motel (officially sept. 2011) from the previous owners who had let the motel a little run down. However, we are fixing, painting, cleaning, reparing, etc and getting it back good as new. We are glad that you gave us a chance to prove ourselves. We hope you, along with others will enjoy and appreciate the motel for years to come,
PS: We are going to put curtains in room 1515 next spring and take out the blinds so you can sleep late if you want too. See you soon on your next visit. Julie

We stayed at the gazebo inn for the second time this past august. The people were nice and helpful but this hotel now leaves alot to be desired. We were informed when making our reservations that there had been several upgrades and renovations.We were originally put in the same room we had the first time we stayed and it had the same problems.The room we were moved to smelled like beer and had cockroaches. Never again,

We are sorry that you did not have a restful stay with us. I truly wish that you had let us know about these issues while you were here so that we could have addressed them for you at that time. We are renovating the hotel but with the summer buisness we were unable to get everything done that we wanted to do. The property is clean and well maintained, however we realize that we cannot catch everything. It was impossible to do everything in the middle of the season. Now with the off season here we are going into all of the rooms and giving each and every room Jane"s personal touch. Thank you

I had an ocean front with a microwave and a mini fridge. I was very happy with my room and foudn it to be clean and everyone was helpful. Close to the beach so I didn't have to far to walk. I told the lady when I checked out that this will be our destination for years to come. The only downfall was problems with the icemaker in front of my room, everytime I went except twice it was out. Not their fault, from the sound of it they were left with a mess to fix and they are doing a great job. If you are a hotel hog then this is not for you, if you are happy with knowing that hundreds of people are in this room a year then they are great. Great value. I give it a 10 on everything. Those negative reviews are by people that just aren't satisfied with everything.

Room Tip: The fridges are small so if you bring food don't bring a lot of fridge stuff or make it like can...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Gazebo Inn is one of the last OCEAN FRONT "Mom & Pop" hotels left in Myrtle Beach. The "MA" Perkins family have owned and operated motels in Myrtle Beach since 1972 (three generations). We have always offered families a clean, functional room at very affordable rates with a quiet and safe FAMILY environment. The Gazebo Inn is 5 stories high and located directly on the ocean front. We cater to families, couples, and golfers. We are NOT a 25 story resort where parking is located several blocks away. We have FREE on site parking. We are one of only a few motels left that still offer the quaint "MA and PA" nostalgic, personal, beach house feel that Myrtle Beach was built on. Call us today to make a reservation and become part of our repeat happy "family" that has been staying with us for years. Yes, there are still a few families who have been staying with us since 1972. We offer many different room types and prices to fit most budgets. ... more   less
