Historical Traveler Reviews Osprey on the Gulf Panama City Beach
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!

... right?) so was excited at the prospect. It was a touch disappointing in that we only caught one thing, and it wasn't a fish. I CAUGHT A TURTLE. And a big one at that. Snapping turtles like that can take a finger without hesitation, so he was let go ASAP! Turns out, we were fishing fresh water with saltwater bait so...not surprising! On last laze on the beach completed an incredible week in florida. New Orleans beckons, catch you all soon with an update! ...
... got to go do a little shopping. After that we did some laundry, man that piles up fast at beach stops! Dollar store proved useful for balloons, never a dull day with balloons! And ended the day with salmon on cedar plank. Oh wow. That's been mamas favorite so far, WAY ...
... in the back of the van on the way back to our truck, oh, and the canoe ride. Ended the day grilling fresh tuna. Oh man, definitely Ricks favorite. Sorry no pics. Rick grilled it perfectly too. And fresh sweet corn. Not as good as iowa, but still tasted ...
Went to seaside today, very fun area with quaint shops, food trucks and beach access. Found a heck of a deal for a kids sand shovel, only $28. Had great lunch at crab shack, really yummy food! Had red gulf shrimp and Rick had Cuban sandwich on an elevated patio over the beach. Very awesome views with cool breezes. Red and purple flags meant dangerous waters and jelly fish. Surf up 8-10 feet so no swimming in the ocean ...
Another lazy day, rained all morning which made for great sleeping in time! Pinterest donuts were a HUGE hit. Released the hermit crabs we found yesterday. Ride the waves at the beach with our Walmart purchased knee boards, buried the kids but ...
