I spent a considerable amount of time researching our vacation to Hollywood and considered everything from the big glitzy resorts to the humble B&B. My criteria were simple and necessar for our family, it had tobe an ocean facing 2 BR suite directly ON the beach. ALOT of the hotels require you to cross a highway to get to the... More

My husband, 2 year old and I stayed here in April 2011 over Easter. We rented a one bedroom oceanfront apt. The location could not have been better - just steps to the ocean. Perfect for a small child with trips to and from the apt. for naps, etc. The rooms were really clean and the property was well maintained.... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed your over night stay with us. We are definitely not the keys but we would love it if you would consider coming back to the Manta Ray Inn for a longer stay so that we can really pamper you and show you what we have to offer. More

Just returned from my 2nd (but certainly not the last) visit to the Manta Ray Inn. The rooms are comfortable and have all the basics and with a grocery store only a few miles away you are set! Believe me, you won't find anyplace closer to the beach and waves unless you have brought your tent! We are already planning... More

Just stayed at the Manta Ray 5/18-25. This was my third stay and as before, had a wonderful time. The Boucher family is very attentive and Gerry, the housekeeper, will do anything to make your stay comfortable. The Manta Ray is clean and comfortable and you basically walk out your door on to the sand. It is very relaxing and... More

I have attended the ARVO eye research meeting in Fort Lauderdale every year for almost 17 years, so I have tried out many hotels in the area. The Manta Ray Inn is my number one rated hotel for value, convenience, beach access, and friendliness. Since I discovered this place about ten years ago, I never stay anywhere else.

We always enjoy our ARVO guests and hope that we take care of everything for you so that all you have to do is relax and enjoy when you are not working. You have so little time but certainly the sunset is definitely worth it and we cannot wait for your return next May!! See you then and in the... More

If you are looking for upscale, high-rise beach accommodations, this is not the place you want. However, if you want a family-owned, friendly, CLEAN hotel located right on Hollywood beach, the Manta Ray is the BEST!!!
