Stayed at the Manta Ray based on its first place ranking on this site. It is hard to criticize such a nice peaceful place. The pros to staying here are Extremely clean On the beach with wonderful view. Parking and internet are included in rate. Cons: 10 minute walk to boardwalk No central air. Unit in bedroom only. No food,...

I am very glad that you enjoyed the relaxation and peace and quiet of the Manta Ray Inn. Yes, it is great to grill out and enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset. We are definitely old Florida at its best. Our office is open every day and we have a night time security guard to make sure that...

Just twelve rooms with kitchens facing the Atlantic, great place to kick back and enjoy the hours. The barbecue and picnic tables offer the opportunity to meet your neighbors and exchange good food and strong drinks. We've returned to Inn many times in the last twenty years, and it still remains high on our destination list. You will find many...

Felt like I was staying in someone's beach house. I rented the one bedroom on the first floor facing the beach courtyard. Clean, comfortable with that old South Florida vibe. Kitschy quaint decorations, ceiling fans, AC in bedroom, fishies on the shower curtain and handsoap container, well stocked galley kitchen. Only stayed one night but this would be great for...

The Manta Ray Inn is a very nice, clean, well maintained inn directly on the Hollywood, Florida beach. The view from the porch is great. The rooms are small suites with solid wicker furniture in the living room, a large HD Samsung TV with a DVD/VCR player (bring some of your old videos). The kitchen is tiny but fully functional...

We were absolutely delighted with our stay at Manta Ray Inn. This modest two-story motel located directly on the beach is a place that reminded us of how Miami/Hollywood was in a simpler time; no high-rise living, walking out of your room onto the beach, grilling and eating your dinner with an ocean view. The apartments are completely furnished with...

Our Manta Ray Inn family were thrilled with your comments about our little piece of heaven. We appreciate all your kind words but most of all thank you for staying with us and becoming immersed in our little piece of old Florida where you can still walk right out onto the sand from your full apartment and sip a glass...

We spent a long weekend at The Manta Ray-- a family get-together for mom's 90th! There were visitors from 7 months to 90 years, from all over the United States (and world!) We did some things "off-campus", but the most enjoyable times were hanging on the beach, at the pool, lounging on the lawn, having a fantastic pot-luck barbeque-- the...

We stayed here because of the reviews on trip advisor. All the positive reviews were accurate. We did not meet the staff right away due to a late flight and check in. Even though the staff works 10am-4pm, they accommodated our late check in. Everyone was friendly and wanted to make sure you had an enjoyable experience. We booked the...

There is not much more to be said that has not been said already. This is a gem of a hotel owned and operated by a great family.
