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. Love the location...within... More

I stayed here with my wife and her family recently and I prsonally had an awful experience. Over payed for what we actually recieved and when you let an employee know what you think could be done to make improvements for the guests. They shrug their shoulders and seem disinterested in your opinion. I personally never saw anything in the... More

If you are looking for a no-frills hotel with a full kitchen and a balcony overlooking the beach and gulf, Osprey is the one. CLEAN rooms with fresh towels daily, garbage emptied, a pool, shuffleboard, watermelon and popcorn, Tiki bar, directly on the beach. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, and they cater to families. The rates are very... More

The hotel is an older hotel. They need to update rooms. It would also be helpful to have a small washer and dryer in larger rooms. I have having to run down hall to wash and dry clothes. Not within walking distance of any nice restaurant.

Our family stayed at the Osprey for the 1st time during the 1st week of June 2015. I did a considerable amount of research before making the reservation. If you are looking for fancy and luxurious, this is not the place. If you are looking for a good, clean room, with stove, refrigerator, microwave and a beachfront view at a... More

My family and I stayed 3 nights here while in town for a wedding. As this was our first time in PCB, we weren't sure what to expect but this place pleasantly surprised me.
