I want to start my review by referring to a review that you'll see a bit farther down the page, submitted by "joeodo". I don't know where this guy stayed, but it certainly wasn't at the Manta Ray Inn! I think he either stayed somewhere else and is very confused, or he's simply a nut-case! After staying at the Manta Ray for a week in February, I can't believe that anything written in his review is true!
My wife and I stayed at the Manta Ray Inn for a week in mid-February. It is quite simply the best small hotel we've ever stayed in, anywhere! It's on a quiet stretch of beautiful beachfront but within easy walking distance of the bustling Broadwalk. It's immaculately clean and well-maintained, each suite has it's own specific parking spot, beach loungers and towels are provided, each unit has a fully-equipped kitchen, there's free wi-fi, satellite TV, air conditioning.......and on an on. I really don't have a bad thing to say about it at all.
Right from the initial inquiry and booking through our week-long stay and final departure, Thomas, Donna and the staff at the Manta Ray Inn make it effortless! It was our first time staying in the Hollywood Beach area of Florida and I know now that we were VERY fortunate to have stayed at the Manta Ray. The next time we return to that part of Florida, we won't stay anywhere else because there's simply no reason to!
If you're going to be spending some time in the Hollywood Beach area, then you really shouldn't miss the opportunity to stay at the Manta Ray Inn.
