We stay at the Manta Ray when we visit a friend who lives nearby. It is great because it's right on the beach and a short walk to the broadwalk and all the shops and restaurants. We stayed in the same apartment as the year before, so we knew what to expect. No need to pack hair dryers or beach... More

After spending too much on time on tripadvisor looking for a relatively quiet Miami hotel with parking , within walking distance to restaurants and as close to Sunlife Stadium as possible , the Manta Ray managed to tick all the boxes. A trip down the coast to South Beach with all it’s traffic , construction and noise confirmed we had... More

I stayed here for the month of October. I couldn't be happier that my niece chose the Manta Ray Inn. The room was beautiful, the property meticulous and the staff outstanding -- nothing was ever a problem. I was so impressed with my visit that I'm planning another trip in April. Thank you, Thomas, Donna, Robin, Gerry and Stacey for... More

Myself and my partner stayed here during august 2014. We were pleasantly surprised at the location even though this was based on a recommendation it was better than we expected. Our room overlooked the beach and stunning view into the ocean. The beach is literally located approx 15ft from our room! I think the pictures say it all. It's so... More

I was pleasantly surprised at this marvelous Inn. Absolutely, perfect in every aspect. They rate an A+ in my book! I’ve been traveling to Hollywood several times each year since 2004.

Jack it certainly was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we are happy that the accommodations more than met your expectations but I would not call our pool a jaccuzi!
