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. All mod cons were in the room viz: telephone, flat screen tv, coffee maker, WiFi, microwave, fridge etc. The hotel is across the road from the beach and is near to...

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. The location, the view and the comfort of the room made it hard to leave every morning. The housekeeping was excellent. We came back every night to a room that looked just like the day we arrived. We are already...

Nice hotel and great location. Enjoyed our visit and would come back again! Enjoyed the view from our corner room with ocean view. Bed was not the best and noise of kids running outside the first day was concerning. OVERALL WAS A GREAT TRIP AND WOULD COME BACK.

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.

We LOVE the Tamarack. We have gone there every year for 13 years for our anniversary trip. The only issue I have with them is that you cannot request a certain room. We have our favorite room, for sentimental reasons, but are unable to request that particular room. However, overall this place is great!!! Highly recommend.

I stay at the Tamarack at least a couple times a year. The location is the best, walking distance to downtown Carlsbad & right on PCH- across the street from the beach. This property is on a corner with a street light so getting to the beach couldn't be any easier. Great patios on the street side, but the traffic...

While at the hotel there was some unexpected repair being done causing noise and debris on our patio. When I contacted the front desk Monica Garcia, Front Desk Supervisor not only offered us a beautiful room in an ungraded location but did so at the same price. Gracious and efficient guaranteeing our return.
