We had a great time at Osprey on the Gulf. Friendly service, fantastic housekeeping, they really went the extra mile for us. Right on the ocean, very convenient to pier park, restaurants, and beaching. Rooms were older feeling, and the air conditioning filters need a good cleaning. Pools were clean and the outside showers were really convenient. Unlike most hotels,...

Beautiful waterfront view. The lanai was a bonus. Generous size room with full kitchen and dining area. Morning coffee in the lobby, popcorn in the afternoon! Older but well maintained and very clean. Great staff. Great price. Great location. Clean beach.

Worst experience I have ever had!!! While there are too many issues to list them all, the lack of cleanliness, the disrepair and the most uncomfortable beds anywhere are just a few. Do not ruin your stay in PCB by staying at the Osprey Motel.

This hotel was fine. It could definitely use some updating. The staff is friendly. The pools and hot tub are tiny. The location is great. Once we parked our car we could walk to everything. One complaint is every time we opened our balcony we could smell our neighbors smoking :(

Located within walking distance of Pier Park & other tourist destinations. Friendly staff, clean rooms & not way overpriced. Just for info, it's an older hotel but well maintained. Be prepared to pay a $10 refundable deposit for room keys & wristbands at check-in.

I was extremely disappointment in my experience with Osprey on the Gulf. My husband and I stayed there for four nights earlier this month, and the first two nights were fine. However, the third night we were kept awake until after 3:00am by loud neighbors (who subsequently woke us up again by 7:30am), despite multiple phone calls to the front...

We went for a couple get-away and thouroughly enjoyed our time there. Stayed in the adjacent property - Driftwood Lodge. All the rooms are beachside - offering great views, have a balcony and are spacious and clean. We would definitely retrun and stay again!

We have been here almost one week and things could not have been any more wonderful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The suites are bright, clean and cheerful. Makes watching the pier and ocean a great experience. The sunsets are beautiful. The Gilmore family provides so many family-friendly activities.

Only had time to stay one night, but certainly made the most of our visit. Found this place to be very affordable for the area and the amenities we received. Beds were a little hard. Balcony and view were wonderful. Property looked a little dated but that seemed to be part of its charm, not being a high rise with...
