I have stayed here previously and it's a perfect oceanfront gem! Clean, comfortable and quiet for solo's, couples and families. There is a pool, security, bbq, beach chairs and more. The boardwalk which offer food, drinks and entertainment is just a few blocks away. Donna, Thomas and Gerry work very hard to make this Inn the very best spot for your vacation! I can't wait to return next year!!

My husband and I frequent Hollywood Beach. Being that "our regular" spot was booked we opted to stay at the Manta Ray. All we can is we fell in love from the moment we walked in our little suite.
Thomas was a sheer delight from the moment we met him. As was Donna when we first called to make a reservation. Typically we stay on the boardwalk, full of activity and amazing people watching. Manta Rays location is different, it is off the boardwalk.
Yet, literally you can be there in minutes if you desire the activity. The beach is to die for at Manta Ray .... quiet, peaceful, serene, amazing. Clear beautiful water, sandy beach. Beach shoes not needed. Manta Ray provides all the extras, beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, the whole shabang. In the past we have paid $30.00 a day to rent chairs and umbrellas, which they take away from you at 5pm. Here, you can stay on the beach all day long. Uncrowded. We also had access to a swimming pool thru Manta Ray. We never thought we would use it...but we did, at 12am after a night on the boardwalk. What a treat. A definite plus. Very clean and well maintained as well.
The hotel itself is charming. Very clean and kept up impeccably. Our unit had a lovely view of the sea. A tad on the smaller side, yet it lacked nothing at all. They provide you with almost everything you need. Kitchen well stocked. Full size refrigerator, stove, microwave. The toiletries lacked a bit....but no big deal. They provide a bar of soap and shampoo from a large dispenser in your shower. No lotion or conditioner.
Beautiful outside area with grills for cooking if you choose. Lovely spots to sit. Parking is included and right next to the property. Another big plus.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE the location. We are bike riders and always rent bikes when in Hollywood. Literally minutes on your bike to the Boardwalk. So in our opinion you get THE best of both worlds at this charming place.
Don't hesitate for a second if you are thinking of staying here. We will be back! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. We personally like a top floor so no one is above us.

I recently returned from a repeat visit to Manta Ray Inn. The location is perfect. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything you need. Thomas and Gerry do a great job keeping everything clean and organized. We took our bikes and rode the boardwalk every evening. It was so fun. We really liked the crowd and the food at Jake's Place. We also took a short drive up to John U Lloyd State park and went snorkeling off shore at the Jax. Can not wait to return to the area and Manta Ray Inn.

Great location, Thomas & Gerry were very helpful. Comfortable rooms, maybe time to get rid of the carpets, but rooms clean. Would most definitely stay here again. Nice quite beach area, good place to swim. Lifeguard tower very close by.Not on the broadwalk, but I preferred it that way. Good security at night.

We have been coming to Hollywood for over 30 years and have now had 2 excellent stays at the Manta Ray! Excellent team and always ready to help; rooms are clean and very comfortable; perfect for BBQ and having relaxing dinner overlooking the ocean; all in all a fantastic place to spend time and to meet new people. We will definitely be back in 2013 and very big thanks to the wonderful staff at the hotel.

Room Tip: love room 106 next to the ocean
