Manta Ray Inn is a quiet place located on a wonderful beach, far from crowds and noise. It rents small apartments of one or two bed rooms, small kitchen and living room. The apartments are very clean, and the personnel nice and helpful. Restaurants and shops are at walking distance and both Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood are at easy reach....

Staying at the Manta Ray Inn is an annual tradition for my family. We love it for the following reasons: 1. Location - you are right on the best beach in Hollywood; close to the broadwalk, (5 minute walk); easy drive to restaurants, shopping (15 minutes from Aventura Mall). 2. Cleanliness - the manager/owners/housekeeping staff keep this place in pristine...

Having experienced the traditional Fort Lauderdale high-rise hotel experience we were looking for something else. Hollywood, as such, is very different from Fort Lauderdale and South Beach, just low-key down-to-earth sun, wind and wonderful waters. Manta Ray is literally on the beach, a small building with just a few apartments. Living room, kitchen and bed& bathroom all with size and...

Just steps away from the beach. Rooms have been recently updated but retain a "beach kitsch" vibe. Can be a bit damp but what do you expect being so close to the ocean? Full kitchen and outdoor grills on site. Beds are very firm!
