This year we stayed 8 nights over July 4th week. Our room was perfect with zero issues at all. It has everything we need: full size refrigerator, stove,... More

CLEAN rooms with fresh towels daily, garbage emptied, a pool, shuffleboard, watermelon and popcorn, Tiki bar, directly on the beach.

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. It's very nicely updated, lots of amenities, and overall very affordable. The staff is all super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The only problem... More

This hotel was perfect for my one night stay. Great value. Super clean. Very spacious room with a kitchen and balcony. Bathroom setup is a little small, but a smart arrangement with the sink outside the actual bathroom, though still private from the rest of the room - which is convenient for when several people are sharing a room. Superb... More

Me and my wife Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean. I don't have anything bad to say about the osprey. If you are looking for good hotel for a decent price, this is it. They are family owned and not as big as other resorts ,which means ,less crowded .
