I was looking for a place to stay to take care of some work related issues in North Miami and then be close enough to Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale to catch on cruise on Saturday,. The Manta Ray fit the bill. This is a gem - old Florida style motel in this mist of big high rises - right...

We enjoyed having your family with us at the Manta Ray Inn!!! It is such a pleasure to watch families enjoy what the Manta Ray Inn team provide for them. Your family definitely won a place in our hearts and we are thrilled that you really enjoyed "old Florida" the way it has been enjoyed for years by other families!...

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...

I booked this hotel on behalf of my Director for a conference that was being held at one of the chain hotels down the street. We were late making accommodations and couldn't get in at the conference hotel. So glad we didn't (according to the director). He raved about the people running the hotel, the location to local eateries, and...

We stayed at the Manta Ray for our annual beach vacation, and loved it! It is a small inn with an "old Florida" vibe that suits us perfectly. The owners are on-site, very helpful and responsive, and the room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. If you are like us, and don't particularly enjoy big resorts or high rises, this place...

My family, friends, and I were trying to figure out where to spend Thanksgiving weekend 2016 just to do something different than the usual afternoon-dinner-at-home. Let's go to the beach!
