My daughter and I spent a week at the Manta Ray in late April and we were both very pleased. The owners and staff strive to make everyone comfortable and taken care of.

We have stayed at the Manta Ray Inn since 2006. The Manta Ray Inn is a small family-owned hotel where the atmosphere is casual and friendly. The rooms are comfortable with an equipped kitchen. There are BBQ's for use, laundry facilities, a pool, and the beach is just steps away! The perfect location to soak in the sun and relax....

Had to get on a vacation at the end of the election season and it was perfect. The owners were nice and very interested in what we would want to do. Beach chairs were awesome and free. Private beach so nothing annoying. Will probably come back once a year

A fabulous time here right on the beach. This is a fantastic place to stay in Hollywood Beach. The owners were very friendly and genuinely seem to care that your visit here is like a "home away from home." One day they even had a cookout for the guests, which was really nice! The grounds, the rooms, and the beach...
