I would definitely return. I enjoyed being able to relax in the room and see the beautiful ocean or take a few steps and be out on the beach. My daughter loved the playground area. I liked everything being so close.

Our first time staying here but it won't be our last. Great place for families! Clean rooms, amazing view, and great pool! The front desk was very friendly and helpful. Loved having a full kitchen in our room. The balcony was perfect!

The Osprey is the place to go for a fun family vacation. Right on the beach with well kept pool area and sun deck. The location is close to shopping and food, and walking distance to Pier Park. The staff is friendly and very efficient.

We enjoyed our time at the Osprey. It is family owned and it is smaller than most motels in the area. Just what we wanted. It's about a quarter mile from the pier so it's within walking distance. The staff was friendly and the room was very clean.The microwave was a little small but fit everything we needed. Loved that...

Great ocean view. Great location to restaurants & shops. Great wifi connection. The room was clean & staff very helpful. However, the mattress was uncomfortable & this hotel is old and a little run down.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Wonderful views of the beach, surf noises loud and clear. The room was cleaned each day and restocked. Once the wifi was fixed, we were in heaven. We will go back.

Beach chairs for rent after 3/1. Mardi Gras parade passes...
