Beautiful facility. Feels like you are in the tropics with the lush landscaping around the pool. Easy walk to restaurants and shops. Beautiful views of the beach across the street and great sunsets. Breakfast was only ok.

I stayed at the Tamarack for a friend's bachelorette party due to the price and oceanfront location. Although the stay was pleasant and the staff was very courteous and helpful, I wasn't thrilled with the amenities or the room. The room had a very stale odor of mildew and the pool area was very basic. The general clientele also seemed... More

Great place to stay. The location was amazing. All you have to do is walk out of the hotel and walk a couple of feet and you were on the beach. I could not of asked for a better hotel. The room was great too.

Fantastic views of the ocean... if you can ignore the busy road in front of you. I wore earplugs as it can get pretty noisy along the main drag and it was a Monday night. Can't imagine what it would be like on a weekend in high season. The rooms were ok... could use some updating for sure. But it... More

Tamarack is in a perfect location in Carlsbad village. It's walking distance to shops, restaurants, and weekly farmer's market. It's directly across from a beautiful sandy beach. But, if just wish ti relax and watch the ocean from your deck, you really don't have to leave. There's a pool and two hot tubs, staffed recreation room, barbecues and a library... More

We stayed here for a day at the beach before heading home. The weather wasn't great but the hotel was lovely-old style California hotel. The rooms were spacious, with balconies and a great view of the ocean. The breakfast was minimum. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The Tamarack Hotel has nice, quiet rooms directly across from the beach. The breakfast is minimal, but adequate. I was dismayed that they wouldn't honor a AAA discount after arrival because I booked online.
