This place is perfectly located in Hollywood. It is literally on the beach and a short stroll away (under 10 mins) to Hollywoods lovely boardwalk. Where you will find a great choice of places to eat, drink and soak up the atmosphere this quaint town has to offer. We stayed here before joining a Cruise from Fort Lauderdale and it... More

My wife and I have stayed here for the the last several years and just concluded an 18 day vacation at Manta Ray Inn. Each year we have been totally satisified with everything at Manta Ray Inn. The people who own/manage it are great. Always available and always accommodating. (No I am not related) Location is ideal -- 25 steps... More

Ocean view, attentive owner, comfortable room at a good rate all added up to a successful return trip to Hollywood beach. Discovered some new restaurants in Hallandale and at the new Gulf Stream Park complex but the walks along the Broadwalk always are a highlight. The play at the Nova Southeastern University theater topped off the weekend.

The location of the Manta Ray Inn is ideal. We loved that you were directly on the beach and once you check in, you park your car and don’t have to leave paradise. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We will be back and recommend it to our friends and family.

My family and I stayed at The Manta Ray Inn for the weekend. We live not too far from this hotel, so we are familiar to this area. We wanted to have a weekend getaway and it was wonderful. We had clean rooms, friendly staff and fellow vacationers, and at a great price. I would recommend this place for a... More

This hotel is in a great location. Just steps from your room to the beach and just a short walk to the Broadwalk. Rooms are kept very clean. If you like to get away from the cookie cutter hotel this is the place for you.

This summer instead of going to a cottage in Northern Ontario we decided to drive down to Florida instead. The water and weather are guaranteed to be warm... Grabbed the whole family. The suite fit all 5 of us very comfortably. So clean. The owners are absolutely the friendliest, most personable couple.. We were right on the beach. What a... More

There is no doubt that staying on the beach in Hollywood can be a fantastic experience and this place is certainly on the beach in Hollywood. We booked here based on the fact that it was rated so highly and came in at number 2 on tripadvisor. I am pretty surprised it ranks so highly. In short, if you enjoy... More

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
