We (2 adults, two young kids and a 3 months old baby boy from Germany) stayed for 2 1/2 weeks at the Manta Ray Inn and we had such a great time there. It is really just like paradise. The location is terrific, the rooms are cozy, spacious and super clean! And its so close to the ocean :-) You...

You have such a beautiful family!! We enjoyed having you with us in our little piece of paradise and were thrilled that your children could enjoy the beach and the freedom that is provided by being directly on the ocean! We are still talking about your visit and cannot wait for you all to return so we can see how...

The perfect little inn on the beach to watch the sunrise. Situated just far enough from the crowded boardwalk but close enough to all the restaurants and nightlife. This inn has everything you need except your bathing suit! The beds are comfortable, the full kitchen is perfect to prepare a quick snack, and the room is spacious. My family and...

my father rented for 4th of July this year and he absolutely loves this little place. I decided to come visit him on Saturday and I booked a night for myself after I fell in love with this charming hotel. It's very mom and pop which I prefer to the big fancy full of people places. The rooms are great....

Recently stayed in 2 Br apartment, clean and spacious living areas. Loved the beachfront location and free parking. Slightly odd layout of the apartment with tiny bathrooms especially off the main bedroom and multiple quite large wardrobe spaces but still clean and reasonably maintained. I guess these quirks are part of the age and structure and didn't particularly detract from...

Thank you so much for staying with us! It is always a pleasure to make new friends at the Manta Ray Inn. We have never been described as quirky but I guess in a way you are right. This building was built in 1946 and for that reason the layout is a little challenging. The most important thing is that...

Hollywood Beach is blessed with seemingly countless hotels or various sizes and levels of quality, so we searched for just the right one for our visit, and found it in the Manta Ray Inn. This family-owned, two-story hotel offers location, right on the beach, comfort and convenience. Rooms are clean and well-maintained. Some of the furniture could be updated, but...

It was our fourth time at Manta. We continue to appreciate excellent Staff service and the friendliness of its owners. Wake up seeing dawn and reading the newspaper distributed as a courtesy is charming. Rest assured, near Miami, near the Sawgrass and near the boardwalk. Ideal for couple or with children.

Great place. Super easy with a kid... just open the door and hit the beach. Even has palm trees right there for some shade. Hotel is nicer than it looks in pictures.
