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...

Stayed at Osprey on the Gulf, accommodations were adequate and the staff was very courteous and helpful. It was located close to Pier Park and the Pier, so we were able to walk to both. Stayed on the 4th floor and had a private balcony with a beautiful view of the gulf.

Perfect location. Beautiful view and within walking distance to Pier Point. Everyone is so very friendly and willing to help with any needs. Pools and grounds are great also. I would highly recommend staying there if you don't need a large condo. I can't wait to go back.
