We just spent 8 wonderful nights in the finest accomodations I have ever experienced. The units are clean and fresh with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The pictures on their website do not do them justice. The beach is right outside your door and there are plenty of lounge chairs provided to soak in the rays. It is...

Sorry for the delay in our response! We have been really busy with Christmas guests and yet it is so nice to have had you stay with us at the Manta Ray Inn and experience first hand how relaxing and enjoyable the sound of the surf can be!! Cannot wait for you to return!

My husband and I stayed at the Manta Ray Inn last week; it was the nicest time we have ever had; the owners, general manager and staff are the friendliest and most helpful people we've met. We could not have asked for better.

I traveled to the Manta Ray Inn on December 6 thinking it would be impossible for the Inn to live up to it's online rating. I was wrong. The whole experience was tremendous from the communications before my trip right up until my check out. I even extended my stay an extra day which I have never done before. The...

We loved our week's stay at the Manta Ray Inn. We were in the room downstairs on the water. Amazing location. The staff is friendly and very acommodating. They go out of their way to be sure their guests are comfortable and happy. The Inn is very clean, friendly, and comfortable. Lounge chairs can be used on the patio or...

Looking forward to staying again soon. Extremely accommodating owners and staff. All the comforts of home and directly on the beach. Close to everything, yet neatly nestled on a quiet area of oceanfront.

We have stayed at a couple of other places close to the Manta Ray over the years. We like the small hotel feel and seeing folks we meet along the way. To make a long story short the Manta Ray exceeded our expectations by miles compared to three other places within walking distance. First impression- the rooms are spotless, the...

Growing up in Florida during the 1950s and 60s, I stayed with my family in many beach front "motels". The Manta Ray Inn combines this tradition of small, friendly inns with modern needs. Great location and staff.

Perfect quiet spot to walk out onto the beach - so simple to take a dip and just walk right back to the room to shower off. Or just sit under an umbrella in the grassy courtyard, and watch the waves. It's not set up for being chic or trendsetting - no fancy extras. Just the basics, done nicely. Friendly...

Thanks so much for your comments!! We have specialized beds that are pillow topped on both sides. One side is firm and the other side is semi-firm. We definitely would have been happy to turn the mattress to the firmer side for you. In our literature in the apartment we do explain this. We will now make sure that all...
