Stay away from the Osprey!!!
Rudest employee's I've ever met. I've never been treated so horribly by hotel staff anywhere. Would not recommend staying at the Osprey.
Besides being rude, the hotel is falling apart. Be careful when standing on the balcony!
My family and I have stayed here for years. The hotel management always makes it VERY family oriented. You never turn around without seeing a smiling face! We will continue to stay here for our vacations.
We stayed at the Osprey Motel during Spring Break and loved this hotel.
It was a very family friendly motel considering the time of year we went. The beach was picture perfect. Also, the location of the hotel is a little to the west of most of the action, but it is still in a great location for shops and restaurants. The only complaint that I had was with the front desk staff. I encountered one rude employee, but I didn't let it hamper my stay!
The Osprey is definitely a 1st class resort, couldn't expect anything more from a hotel. The rooms were magnificant and the price was unbelievable. Great deal.
Great family trip
my family and i stayed there about 7 years ago and loved the place. the location and the cleanessof the motel was great. i hope to get to come back this year.
We enjoyed it so much.....
We enjoyed our first visit to the Osprey in October of 2002 that we went back and were married on their beach in May of 2003. Wonderful Staff! Joanie at the desk is especially terrific and Daryl at the tiki bar makes a great Pinal Colada! The rooms are always spotless (thank you Becky in housekeeping) and it is very sad when the time comes to check out.
Thank you for the champagne and we hope that you enjoyed the cake! We will be back.

We stay there every year and have enjoyed every visit. Nice staff and clean rooms. Looking forward to our next visit.
The Osprey, you can't beat it!!
My family first stayed at the Osprey 7 years ago and have stayed there every year since. The rooms are clean and roomy, the staff is excellent (we love Mike) and they are family oriented. The also have a tiki bar which is very nice as it is also kid friendly. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
I recently stayed at the Osprey. the staff was nicer than what i normally run into. Mike was especially accomodating. The rooms were clean and fresh as well as entire hotel. I will definetly go back there to stay and enjoy every minute as well as I did this time. Thanx guys, especially Mike and Tammi.
Awesome place to stay...
We stayed at the Osprey 2 years ago and loved it. It is located on the strip, but a mile or so from all the action. We could drive everywhere we wanted to go and it was nice. The hotel room was large and clean, the staff was great, and the beach was awesome. Can't wait to go back!

... car trips, Sheree has read aloud some book that both of us wanted to read anyways. Since the radio stations were primarily playing country or Christmas music, we decided that this would be a good time to crack open the book we have been waiting for and pass the time in this fashion. The book is called " An Embarrassment of Mangos" by Ann Vanderhoof. We saw the intercoastal waterway when we were coming down the east coast ...
... thunderstorms and lightning. This morning, in between thunderstorms, we went out for a 3 mile walk through the slash pine forest, white sand dunes and along the beach. See photos. We returned just in time before another thunderstorm which featured close lightning, momentary loss of power (thank you surge protector) and torrential downpour. Now a little reprieve before next volley.
Monday, we begin our return west for ...
... stronger as the night went on. It was hard trying to leave because as soon as someone heard our accents they always wanted to know where we were from and all seemed impressed with our drive across country.Things really fell apart when the barmaid shouted the bar with something she called Liquid Marijuana. Thats all i've got to say on that but a good night was had by all.
... wasn't the worst. Thanks to the hole in the ozone my skin was prepared. :) we had fajitas for supper. And tonight we pulled out the thrift shop clothes that we'd bought earlier in the trip. We all swapped and turns out I'd ended up with a kilt and matching tartan vest with a lovely orange shirt to go with it. The material made me ridiculously hot in the heat and I was seriously struggling. The sun had definitely taken it out of most of us so we all crawled into bed fairly ...
... on our 5 hour trip :/ the whole arvo was a blur until we arrived at our campsite in Panama City beach. It was pretty hot and humid when we arrived so setting up camp wasn't exactly ideal, sweat dripping everywhere. Once the tents were up I was on cooking duty so we got to it. We were making burgers which turned out to be pretty popular amongst the group. Everything got cleaned up and we spent the night sitting around drinking and chatting before people retreated to their ...
