If you are looking for upscale, high-rise beach accommodations, this is not the place you want. However, if you want a family-owned, friendly, CLEAN hotel located right on Hollywood beach, the Manta Ray is the BEST!!! The Boucher family will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is perfect. Gerry is the most conscientious, attentive housekeeper I have ever... More

I stayed at the Manta Ray inn in early May as I was attending an annual conference in the vicinity. This is the 2nd year I have stayed here. It is a gem of a place- the beaches are clean and golden sand stretches for miles. The inn provides a parking spot per apartment. The apartments are very clean and... More

First off, I admit, it was a toss up between Manta Ray Inn and a 7 day cruise. And while I love to cruise, having been to the Manta Ray a few years ago with my sisters, I decided this was probably a more relaxing way to start my retirement, plus get away from the cold, snowy lingering winter in...

We've stayed here 3 or 4 years in a row now. We love the peace and quiet, but yet not being far from the Broadwalk.
