When I was young ,PCB was a town of mostly mom and pop motels and restaurants. One could take a drive down "the strip" and enjoy a magnificent view of the beach. In recent years it has transformed into a near continuous string of 30-story mega condos and national-chain hotels. Most of the independents are gone. The beach is no longer visible from the highway in many areas.

Well, I long for the old days. I love the "Mom and Pop" establishments that made Panama City famous. In fact, I go out of my way to patronize them.

My wife and I recently visited Osprey on the Gulf for our annual anniversary trip. Osprey is one of the older motels on the beach. While the room was the old-style, basic rectangular motel room so common from years ago, we were very pleased as this was perhaps the cleanest room I have ever stayed in in Panama City.

The entire resort was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. While we did not make much use of the on-site amenities, the pools and public areas were clean and inviting. The resort had activities scheduled for every day of the week but again we did not participate. The activities sounded like fun but, since we were celebrating our anniversary, we had our own itinerary.

If you want to stay in a clean, reasonably-priced motel on the beach in Panama City, then Osprey is for you. If you hate 37-story mega hotels and their outrageous prices, Osprey is for you. I recommend it. I know I'll be back!

Room Tip: Our room had a stocked kitchenette. We didn't need a thing!

We were treated like family, instead of a number.
The different activities that are planned is a wonderful treat.
We were truly satisfied, and plan on returning in the future.

Room Tip: Ask questions as to were is the room located. The corner suites area the best.
