I am almost reluctant to write this review because I do not want too many people to find this gem on the beach. The rates are reasonable, the rooms sparkling clean, and the owners caring and accomodating. Each room has a kitchenette and the parking is free, both big money savers for a longer trip. I have stayed four times... More

You will be directly on the ocean (the best part). Great service from Donna the owner. It's kept very clean. You can do your own BBQ. I... More

We stopped in Manta Ray Inn not having prior reservations. This 12 unit inn immediately appealed to me. It is well laid out, right on the beach, very clean and comfortable. We have a 2 bedroom suite. It has a nice kitchenette and a great view of the ocean. While it is not a big mega resort with tons of... More

Our stay at Manta Ray in was a delight. The hosts are wonderful, friendly people who go out of their way to make everybody's stay extra enjoyable. They were flexible and able to meet out slightly out-of-the-ordinary needs. It's a small hotel with a personal feel, right on the ocean, with a nice swimming pool on site. The rooms aren't... More

This was my third year staying at the Manta Ray. My sister, brother-in-law and nephew stay for 2 weeks every March and I meet them for 6 days. Location: You can't get better. You open your door and you are looking at the beach! Within 20 feet you are ON the beach. The broadwalk is a 7 minute walk and... More

I have stayed at Manta Ray for one month periods of time and have come back many times since I first came in 2006. The staff (Donna, Dwayne, Thomas and Jerry), the room, and other guests are all great and make for a positive experience. The place is quiet and laid back and so I can work from the room... More

What's not to love? The Manta Ray has a pool and is also just steps from the beach! It is quiet,comfortable, and very relaxing. There is a barbecue for guest use, and you can dine at one of the tables provided outside. A wonderful spot to unwind and relax.

We have been going to the Manta Ray Inn for about a dozen years which tells you we like it a lot. The owner/operators are on site most of the time and their warmth and charm have led us to become good friends. The property is always clean and they update the facilities every year. It is a charming 11... More
