Several stays at Manta Ray and all have been wonderful. Caring and efficient staff, comfortable and clean rooms, close to the Broadwalk, beautiful sunrises. And the beach is only steps away! I am always happy to plan a trip to Manta Ray and hope to return soon.

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...

We cannot wait until your return also! It is always so much fun to catch up with your family and the activities of the year and to see how wonderful your children have grown!

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...
