We picked this place based upon prior reviews. Did quite a bit of research for places in Hollywood. Read some of the other reviews for a more detailed overview of the property. Yes, it's small, but very well maintained and incredibly great location. It's pretty much like a little apartment/condo with a mini-kitchen, etc. We picked it because it's right... More

The perfect little inn on the beach to watch the sunrise. Situated just far enough from the crowded boardwalk but close enough to all the restaurants and nightlife. This inn has everything you need except your bathing suit! The beds are comfortable, the full kitchen is perfect to prepare a quick snack, and the room is spacious. My family and... More

my father rented for 4th of July this year and he absolutely loves this little place. I decided to come visit him on Saturday and I booked a night for myself after I fell in love with this charming hotel. It's very mom and pop which I prefer to the big fancy full of people places.

Recently stayed in 2 Br apartment, clean and spacious living areas. Loved the beachfront location and free parking. Slightly odd layout of the apartment with tiny bathrooms especially off the main bedroom and multiple quite large wardrobe spaces but still clean and reasonably maintained. I guess these quirks are part of the age and structure and didn't particularly detract from... More

Thank you so much for staying with us! It is always a pleasure to make new friends at the Manta Ray Inn. We have never been described as quirky but I guess in a way you are right. This building was built in 1946 and for that reason the layout is a little challenging. The most important thing is that... More

Hollywood Beach is blessed with seemingly countless hotels or various sizes and levels of quality, so we searched for just the right one for our visit, and found it in the Manta Ray Inn. This family-owned, two-story hotel offers location, right on the beach, comfort and convenience. Rooms are clean and well-maintained. Some of the furniture could be updated, but... More

It was our fourth time at Manta. We continue to appreciate excellent Staff service and the friendliness of its owners. Wake up seeing dawn and reading the newspaper distributed as a courtesy is charming. Rest assured, near Miami, near the Sawgrass and near the boardwalk. Ideal for couple or with children.
