In 1941, Mr. Robert and Mrs. Ruby Perry opened Perry’s Ocean Edge with only 17 rooms. Over the next few years, a second floor and additional rooms were built on to the original hotel.
In the 1950s, you could pull up and park in front of your room. The parking area was later enclosed, and solar panels were installed to heat the atrium swimming pool.
In the 1960s, Mr. Perry turned the reins over to his daughter and son-in-law, James and Yvonne Bazemore.
The South Tower was added in 1973 and the North Tower was added in 1984. Both towers at one point in time were other properties.
Over the years Perry’s Courtside rooms, formerly part of a property known as Pleasant Green and the White Caps buildings, were purchased.
The hotel stayed in the family until 2001, when it was purchased by GDA Investments. Perry’s was later purchased by Pacifica Host in April of 2012.
