The Osprey suites are very good value. The view is excellent, and the proximity good shopping and dining in Pier Park is a big plus. The kitchens are fully functional, which means that you can save even more money by dining in when it suits you.

I travel a lot on business but this trip was personal. One of the travelers nightmares is to leave something behind. Not to worry at this beachside beauty . The friendly staff was more than happy to return an item i left behind with professionalism and kindness that is hard to find nowadays.. The view of the Gulf from the balcony is breathtaking and the location is right in the heart of the action. Would definitely return

This was the second year we spent our anniversary at the Osprey. We have some friends that had stayed there before and they highly recomended the Osprey for our first trip. After the first trip there was no question as to where we would stay this year. We were very happy with first the staff when making reservations, they were so helpful. When we arrived the staff were all very nice and had our comfort and enjoyment of our stay in mind. Everything was clean and we were within walking distance to pier park. A good place for food, shopping , or just to stroll through the streets. The beach is beautiful and relaxing. I cannot stress how much we enjoyed our trip. We plan on returning to celebrate our 34yr. anniversary in 2011

Hotel was a good value, room was a little worn and housekeeping could have run the vacuum a little more. That being said, all the staff was super helpful and we weren't the best at making it convenient for housekeeping to get into our room in the mornings. Beach was awesome and the low key environment was perfect for our family. Spent many evenings on the beach. Almost always had to park across the street, as the parking wasn't as tight as on site parking that worked ok for us as well.

Recently my husband and I stayed for the first time at the Osprey on the Gulf. We will definitely be back again! Rooms are comfortable for 2, kitchen had everything we needed and people (guests and staff) were so warm and friendly. We walked to Pier Park for shopping and dinner. Parking was ample and covered parking was so nice to have in Fla.
Rooms were a little dated, but still very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. We loved this place!

Normally, my mom, sister and I come once a year, in the fall. This year, I brought my 30 yr. old daughter with me, a "Just the Two of Us" trip. The Osprey is always a great place to stay. They have something going on every day, which involoves all ages. The rooms are clean, and the maids come around everyday. We were short a couple of kitchen items on the list, and within an hour of me notifying them, we had them. The staff is very kind. We happened to notice our shower had started leaking around the nozzle, and, again, within an hour of notifying the office, maintenance was there to fix it. The balconies are great and you have a beautiful view of the beach, ocean and the breathtaking sunsets. (They are always my favorite time of the day, I have hundreds of pics. And my saddest time of the day, because another beautiful day at the beach is over.) I know this is sappy, but I'm just telling the truth. The place is within walking distance of Gulf World, and a great diner, and just a few minutes drive to other restaurants and attractions. It truly is a great place to stay!!
