My family and I have been coming to the Manta Ray Inn for 40+ years, before it was purchased 20+ years ago by the Boucher Family who own and run it now. Donna, Dwayne and Thomas Boucher have always treated us like we are family with a warm welcome and they are always checking to make sure we have everything...

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! You are correct about our location and also about our guests. Having an Inn where so many families return year after year shows another side to...

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...

Prior to our stay we received an e-mail from the owner asking for our arrival time. The owner was trying to have our room available before we got there. We were staying here only 1 night prior to leaving on a cruise. My friends had come earlier than we did and got to enjoy the area longer. We arrived early...

Just steps away from the beach. Rooms have been recently updated but retain a "beach kitsch" vibe. Can be a bit damp but what do you expect being so close to the ocean? Full kitchen and outdoor grills on site. Beds are very firm!

What a blast from the past. I always like to support the local small businesses. This is a true gem. We hope to go back this summer and spend a week. Make sure you check them out before you book a large hotel. The location of "right on the beach" will make us go back.

I am sat here writing this looking at rolling waves at sunrise over a deserted beach - a great location. It is a 15/20 minutes walk to the restaurants and bars on the Broadwalk but the beach outside makes this a good place where people fishing and pelicans all add to the ambiance. Check in was easy and I didn't...
