This was our first trip to Manta Ray Inn - and certainly not our last. Donna and Thomas were so kind and accommodating answering every question we had. They were so helpful in getting us orientated to the area - giving us information on the Sun Bus, the broadwalk and different restaurants in the area. Our 1 bedroom was ocean front and it literally was a home-away from -home. The owners have ensured everything is thought of in terms of what guests might need. The furniture was clean, updated, the beds comfortable, beach towels included. The living room nicely decorated and the whole unit is in really good shape. It looks brand new. That is something important to me, that the unit is clean and in good shape and this certainly was. The location is amazing being right on the ocean. We truly enjoyed our 5 days at this property and will be recommending it to our friends (including airline colleagues) and family. The fact this family has owned Manta Ray for 30 years shows that it has been well run with care, keeping the guest's comfort in mind. Thank you Donna and Thomas for everything! We will see you again soon. Reg, Jane, Dylan…
I was looking for a hotel on the beach. I stumbled upon this little slice of Heaven, walking out the door and onto the beach! Exactly what We were looking for. The ocean right there in front of you and the Ocean water was perfect. The family that runs this hotel were all so nice and accommodating. This place is extremely clean and Covid friendly. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is great for longer stays. The property is gorgeous to just sit and sip your coffee and watch the sunrise in the morning. If you book a stay here I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Personally I can’t wait to get back there. I truly loved everything about it. Five gold stars!!!
A delayed thank you to Donna, Dwayne and Thomas for a wonderful 5 days. Was lucky to find a last minute opening and enjoyed our first floor room so close to the beach. We rented a car from the airport and the private parking is a plus. Looking for a return visit next winter.
We have been coming to the Manta Ray Inn for a number of years now. Even during the pandemic last year. We finally had a week-long reunion in the sunshine with our recently engaged son, his fiance and my daughter from Boston. The owners of this clean, well-kept and perfectly located resort have become like family as well, as have the other guests who vacation during the same time period. I made a mistake with my travel dates this winter and the owners bent over backwards to accommodate us. The cozy apartments are a stone's throw from the ocean and you have everything you need from a blender and corkscrew to BBQ grills outside. Beach lounges and towels are provided, an amenity that costs upwards of $50 a day at the hotels on the strip. A short walk puts you right into the action on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, but the Manta Ray is a welcome, peaceful and quiet place to relax versus the hustle and bustle of the properties on the Broadwalk. We have already left our deposit to return with our family next February. Thank you Donna, Dwayne and Thomas for another fabulous week on the beach!…
We absolutely loved our stay. Just what we wanted and needed. So happy we were able to stay here, The beach was stunning. The owners and staff were delightful. This was our first stay. Hopefully, not our last.
My wife and I spent 3 incredible days and nights at the Manta Ray Inn and everything about this place is 10/10. We were lucky enough to be here on Valentine day and they gave my wife a box of heart chocolate and a beautiful plant. They had a Valentine supper at the Inn with chicken, salmon and many other delicious foods all free. The staff, service, ambiance and guests are all 10 out of 10. I cannot recommend this gem enough and all that right on the beach. Thank You Donna and Dwayne for an incredible stay. We will be back for sure.
We loved our experience. It was clean and beautifully maintained. The kitchen has every dish and utensil you need to cook. It's within walking distance to the broadwalk, but not right on it so there aren't a thousand tourists partying outside your door. The broadwalk reminded me of Kings Island. Totally fun, but who wants Kings Island 24/7? We didn't rent a car. Hollywood has a ride service that only costs 1 dollar. We took those everywhere. The Manta Ray Inn was the cutest, cleanest place we saw all week. The attached picture is taken from inside the living room looking out the big mirrored glass door.
We love the Manta Ray Inn! It was our second time here and has been a perfect retreat for our family. The rooms are VERY clean, tidy and well equipped. The staff always goes above and beyond to make our stay truly a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The location of this hidden gem is steps away from the gorgeous beach. And, within just a short walk or bike ride, there are plenty of great bars and restaurants to fit anyones taste. We will be back!!!
This is an amazing hotel right on the beach. The rooms are clean and functional. Having the in-room kitchen was very helpful. The staff was great - very friendly and accommodating. Reasonably priced for the location. Would highly recommend for families or couples.
My wife and I stayed there for 4 days wish we had 40 more The people treated us like family The employees the undership everyone was so great off the beaten path of all the excitement Of the boardwalk But close enough to go This hotel He's not A Super resort Hotel this is old Florida This is the cleanest hotel I've ever been in If you want anything that will get it the Proximity to the beach can't be beat They have beach chairs beach umbrellas Every You need to be at the beach And your just steps away Didn't not go in the pool it's behind the property Look nice I have the biggest pool outside my room I plan to go back to this area and I hope that I can get to stay at this hotel Again thank you Manta ray inn I couldn't ask for a better place
