Great Superior Small Lodging affiliated Old Florida motel directly on the beach. Family owned and operated. So crisply maintained that the place looks like new, and spotlessly clean. I just returned from a 1 week stay. It was very nice. That the ocean temp was around 80 degrees was a plus. Tom, the manager, goes out of his way to...

We booked this inn solely based on its #1 rating with trip advisor. I called to set up my booking, the person I spoke with and then emailed back and forth with was extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived 3-4 hours before check in time,, they kept our bags for us and let us hang out by the beach then...

We love to stay at the Manta Ray. There are so few family owned cozy hotels anywhere, This little Gem is right on one of the best beaches anywhere. In addition to being walking distance from the Hollywood Beach Boardwak full of shops and place to eat (very clean). The hotel is, as my wife and I say "the end...

What a great place to stay in Hollywood Beach. Wonderful management and a roomy one bedroom right on the beach can't get better than that. We were able to stay in our room until our late flight out.... thank you. Nice and quiet at night. Every thing you need to cook etc. Our cab was arranged for us. Free WiFi....

Upon my second visit here I had a BAD gut feeling. One of the reviewers earlier hit the nail on the head, and I thought he was crazy after my previous review and visit. I tend to agree now after a second visit and in low season at that. I waited around for about ten minutes upon check in before...

We really thank you for your comments and sorry that someone being in the office from 9:30 am to sometimes after 6 pm while you were with it did not seem to complete your needs. Our night time security guard was definitely aware of you being there and did exchange discussion with you on several occasions. Not sure who you...

We just had our first stay here and it will not be our last. Unfortunately, it was a quick trip and we were only there for two nights. It is definitely a place where you could stay comfortably for a much longer period of time. We didn't use the kitchen, but I'm inherently nosy and peeked in all the cabinets...

We arrived late at Hollywood (coming from Miami Beach) and having passed all the ugly skyscraper hotels of Miami Beach, the Manta Ray Inn was like a refuge. Despite the late hour, Donna, the Inn-Keeper, drove to the Inn to welcome us, and gave us a bottle of red wine a welcome present. Our room, which was perfectly clean, was...

It was such a pleasure to meet two weary travelers and be able to accommodate them after a very long trip and disappointed that the national park was shut down. Their loss was our gain and I am so happy to have met the two of you and cannot wait for you to come back and stay with us again....

You couldn't ask for a more fabulous place to unwind from the daily grind. The Manta Ray Inn harks back for us to beach vacations we used to take when we were kids, a low-rise (two story) 50s style apartment type motel right on the sand, but with added benefit of all the modern conveniences we've come to expect these...
