We enjoyed our experience at Osprey. Originally we booked at Driftwood, but due to construction noise they graciously moved us to a better condo in Osprey. The staff wee very friendly and gave me one day credit when I was late due to a close friends funeral. In addition, they sent our camera charger by UPS to our new Florida... More

Enjoyed staying here. Every room has a beachfront view and balcony. Our room was similar to a studio, with two double beds and a full kitchen with small dining table and two chairs. It is an older hotel/motel, but clean and mostly well kept. Direct access to walk down to the beach and plenty of parking. Nice Florida room with... More

It's reasonably priced and provides direct access to the beach. All rooms have a small kitchenette and comfortable beds. While it is an older hotel, it is very well maintained. Linens and towels were clean. Plenty of activities close by within easy walking distance. If you want to stay on the beach and not overpay, this is the place. Just... More

Me and my husband always love coming here. The staff is very friendly. Unfortuntly, it was cold but they had a heated pool and it was awesome. The only negative thing I have to say is the wifi stinks but other than that this is a great place to stay.

Stayed here 3 nights early September. Room looked clean but had a bad smell. Balcony was covered with pigeon poo(very nasty) so we did not get to enjoy the balcony. Staff was very friendly as always. I have stayed here many times and every time before has been great. Looks like i will have to find a new place to... More

Arrived 10/25/2014 till 11/1/2014 and wish I could have stayed longer-Staff so friendly as if we already knew them for years. Stores in walking distance and attractions all close by. Restaurants plenty and so much to do-helicopter rides across the street. Scenery breath taking from Osprey balcony each room has. The owners made a awesome chowder and for free to... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Osprey for many years and have always had a nice room, but this year things were a bit different. We stayed from 10/19/14 to 10/25/14 in room 505 and I can say that was the only disappointing room we have ever had at the Osprey. I will start by saying that... More
