Manta Ray Inn
Ranked #5 of 73 Hotels in Hollywood
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I was pleasantly surprised at this marvelous Inn. Absolutely, perfect in every aspect. They rate an A+ in my book! I’ve been traveling to Hollywood several times each year since 2004. The Manta Ray will be my first choice from now on. The unit I stayed in, #205, was spacious, clean, had all the amenities I could possibly want, along with a spectacular view of the beach. The grounds were impeccable, the staff accommodating. My only regret is that I did not find the Manta Ray sooner. See you next time!

Well you have found your home away from home now and that is what is important! I am sorry that I did not have a chance to meet you as I am out of the country but after speaking with the staff I come to find out that you really are now part of the Manta Ray Inn family and I they had a blast making you feel at home and welcome. Come back and see us again soon!!

It was so refreshing to come here after our drive into Arizona. This is the second time that we have stayed at this hotel. It is convenient and never fails to be a great experience. The spacious room was clean and the king sized bed comfortable. The staff was friendly and quick to check us into our room, which is important to me so i have more time to enjoy my vacation time.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the Jacuzzi. It is not extremely big, but was never crowded while I was here.

Jack it certainly was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we are happy that the accommodations more than met your expectations but I would not call our pool a jaccuzi! Lovely as it is and yes, not very crowded. Hollywood is very quiet where we are and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Come and again and stay and we hope that you will not be so tired to confuse the states.

The Manta Ray Inn is a family owned and operated hotel and extremely nice and clean. The owners' son runs the place. He checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed for our 9 month old daughter. He brought us a pack n play and high chair! If you have ever traveled with a baby you know how amazing that is. The owners came out on the weekend and drank a beer with us on the patio. They made sure we felt at home. The water and beach were clean and beautiful. We stayed in a room ON the beach. The window was in the sand. This place, vacation and hotel can only be summed up as the title said absolutely perfect! We highly recommend the Manta Ray Inn and will be back.

We just recently made plans to return to Manta Ray Inn after being away for a couple of years. We couldn't wait to get back and when we contacted the Boucher family, they could not have been more cordial. We really love this place. There is nothing like it -- friendly, informal, on the ocean, owners there always ready to help, cleaned rooms every day, plenty of space, easy to get from there to anywhere (restaurants, movies, theater, etc.) If you are thinking of a vacation do not miss this place. You'll thank me later.

Thank you again for another wonderful week at the MantaRay Inn. The Boucher Family and the staff always make our family feel very welcome at the MantaRay. The family atmosphere, personalized service, beach front location, comfortable clean rooms and free parking all combine for a great South Florida experience. We look forward to visiting next year
