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!

... to enjoy life because these moments don't come around twice. And in the end I had so many people complimenting on how I looked. After swimming we went out to dinner at a German restaurant. It was a cool atmosphere but I was just so tired after only having 3 hours sleep. So I was thankful when I got to bed by 10:30pm. I fell in love with Panama City Beach and I'm sad to leave ...
... the bigger city of Tallahassee a skip, in favour of a small coastal city called Panama City (not to be confused with Panama the country). We left after lunch at about 1pm and made our way to a place we had no idea what to expect.
We arrived around 7pm and liked what we saw, a quiet town (population 72,000 so the city limits sign told us) with some great little pubs, restaurants and of course amazing beaches. That night we chose to stay ...
The day started at breakfast. Rice Krispies believe it or not, nice English cereal! Had to be on the bus to leave New Orleans for 7.45am. Had to wait an hour on the bus as one girl had a few drinks the night before bless her and forgot her alarm but we found her in the end and got going. We then set off for Panama beach! Couple of hours later we stopped have way in Alabama!! Sweet ...
... to the day. Tuesday brought more beach time (you'll see a pattern here soon enough), though under the umbrellas this time! I got my first real taste of Southern BBQ in the evening, and like everything else so far it was amazing, though everyone else seemed to suffer upset tummies afterwards! The highlight of day 3 was a short trip out to Grayton beach, and the red bar. Grayton beach is another super picture perfect cove, though the buildings are ...
We have really enjoyed topsail hill, pretty centrally located, bike riding and mostly private beach access. Plus lakes, kayak and canoe rentals, tall pines to camp under and great staff. Today is red and purple flag day again so no beach. Hit the pool, did some bike riding ...
