Pros: It's right on the beach.
Location: You are a few blocks from Pier Mall. A very cute, large mall with everything you want or need. You can rent little carts and get around.
Let me reassure anyone reading this, all rooms have a view over the ocean. The rooms are clean but carpets could use a good cleaning. The over all appearance is the hotel is very out dated. I was rather embarrassed staying there. For the price I could have gotten a room at the larger hotels close by.It looks like a mom and pop establishment but without them making an appearance.I will tell anyone reading this to Google live the, area and check out the hotels before you book. One moire thing.,they give you a wrist band that you must wdsar to go to the pool and hot tub. They want them back when you check out... They reuse them.. My God had I known that I would have sanitized it before I put it on.

GREAT hotel on the beach, will definitely go back.

These very comfortable and super clean suites are great and within walking distance of the Pier and Pier Mall! We got a roomy 1 bed/1 bath full kitchen on the beach w great balcony without the HIGH priced other facilities that add huge deposits, cleaning, fees, booking fees etc. While this Osprey facility and next door sister facility, the Driftwood, both owned by the same caring family, aren't the brand new 20-story facilities, the pools are awesome, great playground, picnic benches, grills, shuffleboard, game nights and other organized activities and the staff are so accommodating and genuinely kind and happy you're there! We had an incredible time, this is now my favorite place to stay, and would highly recommend this to anyone! (no such thing as a parking lot or street view, ALL are balconies facing the beach!)
