A family vacation for 7 people for 3 days, we enjoyed staying close to the main strip, with easy access to all shops and entertainment. Really liked the outdoor patio next to our rooms. The only criticism I have is the lame “continental breakfast”. But wonderful breakfast

We checked in right away no issues which was great. Ocean view room was a bit small. Complimentary breakfast was a good way to start your day! Overall I would definitely book a room with Mac Rae again!

Our family hotel was built by my great-grandfather in 1920. The rooms are typical of the island from that time period and are smaller than modern hotel rooms. I am glad that your breakfast was a good start to your day. Please contact us once again for your next visit to Avalon. Karen Biery 4th generation "Mac Rae" President/GM

Great location on the boardwalk. Restaurants, stores, beach and the ocean are just a few steps away. The king size room with ocean view is excellent. Clean and also has a nice open area to sit and visit and enjoy your morning coffee or even a glass of wine in the evening.
