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.
