We stayed at the Mac Rae over the weekend - the room was barely big enough for the bed and the bathroom was like a small closet (the hot water never got hot). It looked like they did a bad paint job in the 70's...More

We are located directly on the beach. Our building covers our entire property so we do not have a pool.
