“Very clean, and comfortable with friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here for only one night not knowing it had extended stay amenities. I found the room to be very clean and very well maintained and updated for an older place. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The view was amazing and access to the beach was right out the back door. Walking distance to pier park and lots,of great restaurants. Only down side was the hot tub and pool were a bit undersized for the number of people. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed November 2012, traveled solo

We've been coming to PCB for many years and would NOT consider staying anywhere but here with the Gilmore Family. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We have met friends here and look forward to coming every Spring and Fall. The 'chowder' on Wednesday is fantastic.

Room Tip: There are rooms for any pocketbook, just pick one. All have great accfess to the beach, fishing and...

There is nothing not to love about the Osprey. The rooms are nice and clean. The location is close to pier park. They have a tiki bar an the bartender makes excellent drinks. I can't say anything bad about the Osprey. Plus they give a AAA discount! What's not to love about this place?!

We stayed at the Osprey during November 2011 to attend a huge car show. The accommodations were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Could not have asked for anyone to have been nicer to our group. We will be back on a yearly (if not more often) basis... Thanks to the management for their offerings. Cannot beat the price and convenience to everything...

Room Tip: Top floors give the best view of the gulf...

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a vacation destination or just passing through like we were. Our room was one of four in a seperate building, but all rooms looked great. The facilities were clean and neat. The staff super friendly and helpful. The beach and views were beautiful! There were many family activities planned throughout the week. We didn't participate, but it looked like everyone was having a lot of fun. Spoke to several people who were staying there and who came back every year. We ended up staying for three days instead of just overnight. We would highly recommend a stay here.

Nice sized room with balcony over looking the beach and ocean. Clean great staff and real value. Right on beach and that is all you could ask for. Panama city is a tourist town but I am a tourist so there you go.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Overall, I had a great experience with this hotel. The view from the balcony is AMAZING! The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. I really enjoyed the little personal touches such as coffee in the morning, watermelon in the afternoon and popcorn in the evening. The only thing I did not enjoy is that the hotel is a little outdated in decor and appliances. I had a full kitchen, but the room was a bit smaller than I expected. However, I still highly recommend this hotel, especially for families with children. You really cannot get better quality in the area without paying double the price. It is not fancy or luxurious, but if you are looking for an affordable and clean place to stay with your family, this is the place to go.

Bottom line: this hotel is clean, family friendly, in a great location to Pier Park and the balcony view is incredible.
