Excellent on the beach location. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean & well maintained. Is it a 5 star resort with walk in shower & hot tub? No. Would I go back here- ABSOLUTELY. Close to just about anything you need to eat, drink or buy. Lower density (90 rooms I'm guessing) means fewer people on the... More

My wife and I booked this hotel after looking at their facebook page and decided to give it a try. Its an older hotel that has been recently updated and our room and facilities were absolutely clean to our liking. Staff was excellent and location may be the best feature. We will be back next summer looking forward to this... More

Was quite pleased by this place! My husband and I needed a place for 2 nights and it was no problem getting a room. It's not a fancy place, but it's clean and with 3 pools, 2 hot tubs and the close location to Pier Park it's a winner in my book. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed 5 nights and loved the place! With 3 pools and a hot tub to pick from we tried them all, all of the rooms are Ocean front, all of the staff was very friendly and seemed to like their jobs, Pier park is a large Diner and shopping spot and is only a few hotels down. (A easy... More

Trust me, we are simple people and have stayed at worse, and we're not the type of people that pay a cheap price for a motel and expect a 5 star resort but when you pay $1100 for a motel room that don't offer free beach chair service except for maybe two little chairs and an umbrella you have to...

I enjoyed my beach experience at the Osprey. Located directly on Front Beach Road and just down from Pier Park (Mall + Touristy Restaurants and more) It was a lovely room. If you have kids this would be the hotel to take them to. More expensive in the month of July, especially, the room was worth it. Cement Block walls... More

Me, my wife, and our 8 year old son spent 5 nights here. First off we are spoiled. We typically stay at resorts and convention centers with all the bells and whistles. This is not that place. It doesn't try to be. It reminds me of going to Myrtle Beach motels back in the 70's and 80's. You get a... More

We love the Osprey because it's a small family owned property geared towards families. As a single mom, I feel safe bringing my son here. It's affordable and they offer a discount for returning guests which helps a lot! The room had been updated since our last trip 4 years ago. No problems with Wifi in rooms.
