The images are a bit misleading. We booked a "suite" and saw the pictures of the rooms with separate kitchen and rooms setup. But that's probably for the long term stay apartments but NOT for the 'hotel' room setup. View is nice, it is on a somewhat busy road that does have garbage trucks making noise in the morning.

I parked the car, and we walked wherever we needed to go; close to plenty of shops and quick food. The beach is just across the street - 200 steps away. The sunset from our room was breathtaking each evening. We will return again soon.

You walk in and feel taken care of. The front desk staff had every thing ready for us including the room we had requested. The grounds are kept immaculate. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The Tamarack is located right across the street from the state beach. There is some highway noise but that didn't take away the ambiance...

Our second stay in the tamarack hotel and the experience was just as good. A very large room with two superior double queen beds and a partial sea view.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. It is in a very nice location right across the street from the beach. We stayed in room 103. It had a king bed and looked directly to the ocean. I was worried about being street level but the rooms looking at the ocean are about 8 to 10 ft above the...

This trip was to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. The Tamarack Beach Resort was the perfect choice for us.

This is our fifth visit to Carlsbad & our second stay at Tamarack. The Ocean View rooms are a must. Enjoy that you can be at the beach in minutes & food/shopping is all within walking distance. Continental breakfast is a plus & the room rates were reasonable during the month of September.
