We have stayed at the Mac Rae for vacation in 2004 and 2005. It is wonderful, and the staff is so friendly. It is close to everything, right on the bay. I would not want to stay anywhere else.

We stayed for 3 days in mid July 2004. After hearing from some people who have stayed on the island that some of the nicest hotels on the island offered the worst ammenities, we actually weren't expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised and extremely pleased with our accomodations. The room couldn't have been cleaner and the hotel staff any more gracious. The hotel is centrally located in Avalon and close to everything. When you book a room, they do warn you that there is a Karaoke bar right downstairs, I mean right downstairs. There are earplugs in the room but we didn't need them at all... we took them as souvenirs. It was a great experience for our first stay on the island. We'll definitely be back.

We stayed at the hotel over one weekend in June, 2004. The staff should get five stars! They are so friendly and helpful - it's certainly a plus for us, the first-timers in town. The hotel itself 's got a front seat location overlooking Avalon Bay. It's a nice place to stay because it's got a pleasent mom & pop shop feel, the room is very, very clean, and the patio comes in handy when we want a place to sit & chill; but keep in mind - it's an older hotel with older designs and doesn't have all that fancy & pizzazz; yet the price tag is nicer. They also make great coffee & offer orange juice in the morning; they'll let you borrow free videos. But what really did it for us is that they would allow you to come back after you ckeck out before you go home to wash off if you need to. It's sooooooooo convient because we went boating that afternoon and certainly needs a place to wash & change. The only complain I can find would be the shower in the room - the water flow is pretty darn small & it would be better to use a cup or something to help collect the water. I don't know if that has anything to do with water conserving on the island since they have signs everywhere about conserving water.

We visited Catalina on Veterans weekend 2003 and stayed at the Mac Rae. The rooms were very clean and the patio area was washed down every day. everyone was very pleasant and accomadating. My grandmother and aunt Oma ran the Mac Rae in the 40"s. So it was nice to stay there. I am returning in a few days and my 1st choice was the Mac Rae. Iam bringing some pictures of the patio with my cousins playing. It sure has changed since then.

I stayed in the Hotel Mac Rae for three days and enjoyed it immensely.
We got a great deal on a room with a king-size bed (very comfortable) and an incredible panoramic view of the hills, casino, beach, ocean, pier, and mountains. We were right in the middle of all the action, which was a real plus. The hotel was nice -- no frills, but very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. When we booked our room, we were warned that a club/bar was next door to the hotel and that it was sometimes noisy. However, even though we stayed on a weekend, we did not find the noise bothersome at all. We didn't even use the earplugs that the hotel provided. The bathroom has a skylight. Our stay was great. We will definitely stay at the Hotel Mac Rae again. It is perfect for someone who wants to enjoy Catalina on a budget.
