Found this motel to be a great place to stay. Price was very fair. Staff were all very nice. Room was clean. Great access to a wonderful beach. Close to everything you might want to do. Planned on one night here and stayed for three.

This was our third time staying at the Osprey. We had a little issue with water backing up in our tub when taking a shower. I casually mentioned it to the front desk and it was fixed immediately. Everything is always clean and the staff members are all polite and helpful. While it could stand to have some updates, the...

Just slowing down and enjoying life. Enjoying God's great creations. Rooms are clean and on the beach. The only negative things I could say is the place is a older place but fairly well kept up with the fast track of the beach. It could use some updates in the bathroom ect. Of course, the price would go up right?...

Booked here after learning that construction was going on next to the condo we have always stayed at and glad we did. Very clean, great location, excellent service.....I could go on and on. All the good reviews are true. Remarkable upkeep on older buildings and beautifully landscaped. Comfortable beds for a good night's sleep. Beautiful beach perfect for a sunrise...

The hotel was in dire need of renovations. Room was smelly and dirty, fridge and microwave was dirty. Bathroom had rust everywhere. Pool was in need of cleaning and I ask for extra towels and was told we had what was allotted for us. We had to park across the street. $125 night was far more than what it was...

Once again we had a great time at the Osprey. The rooms are clean, rates are reasonable & the staff are courteous & helpful.. Right on the beach, we ate dinner on our balcony & watched the sunset.. We were fortunate to have 5 days of perfect weather which also helped.
