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

This was our first time at the Manta Ray Inn and we're hoping to go back again! Awesome view from room 206. We had the windows open the entire time listening to the sounds of the ocean. Very clean and comfortable room. Super comfy king size bed. Awesome staff! Thanks everyone. Has a nice shared pool, parking, beach chairs, gas... More

If given the choice between a free stay at a luxury hotel and the Manta Ray, I would choose the Manta Ray,. We have been coming for 10 years and hope to keep returning. On our arrival date three of us came together while the fourth was arriving separately from another departure point. There was a bad storm and the... More

We really enjoyed this post cruise little vacation. We stayed 3 days at the Manta Ray Inn, Nov. 1-Nov.4, and we were so warmly welcomed that it had to be mentioned. Thomas the manager & Gerry who takes care of the room and the grounds are wonderful people. No wonder that this place is getting excellent comments. If you like... More

My family recently took a trip to Florida. We started off at Disney and ended at a quaint, 16 unit Inn located right on beautiful Hollywood Beach. I cannot say enough about this Inn/Motel. We never wanted/needed for anything. They have a full kitchen plus a BBQ outside. Someone was always there, ready to help us in any way possible... More

The Manta Ray Inn has become my home away from home -- the place I want to run to when life starts to cave in on me. It's hard for folks to grasp that you are literally living on the beach -- three steps out my door and I'm on the sand. Talk about no fuss! This is how to... More

This was our second time at Manta Ray. A 10 minute walk off the Broadwalk but the quiet beach and views are worth it. Gerry keeps the place very clean and the family owners are there all the time. Bathrooms need upgrading but the rest of the unit was well maintained and nicely furnished. New flat screen in living room... More

We've stayed at the Manta Ray many times, often with our extended family in other rooms. We've shared meals, used the BBQ, gone to the Broadwalk, but mostly, loved the beachfront location. It's absolutely fantastic for kids, who can just go out and play. Our grandsons love it, and are envious when we go without them! During our most recent... More
