We came down to Carlsbad, to celebrate our daughters wedding. The room was rented by our son-in-law. We came by car from LAX....Very bad AIRPORT.....don't bother if you can avoid it. The coastal Road is gorgeous, the ocean the winding road through the hills and little towns, so nice, we loved it. The Tamarack is right across from the beach.... More

We traded for a 2 bedroom condo and got a great view, but from what I understand is that if you book a hotel you might get a room in back without view. Great location! the only sub-par part of the condo was that the hot water took about a minute or 2 to heat up and was not consistant... More

We had stayed in the timeshare potion and always found it to be a very nice place to exchange. This time we called and stayed in the Hotel - Ocean View room. It had two double beds and was unusually large for a hotel room. The terrace looked right out on the ocean. The only drwback is the street noise,... More

We enjoyed our stay. We were in Carlsbad for our son's wedding and it was very close to the wedding venue. Made getting back and forth extremely easy. Other wedding guests stayed on the property and all comments were positive.

We enjoyed our stay. It was easy to just walk across the street to the beach. The free breakfast was convenient, the staff was friendly and our room was clean. There are plenty of restaurants and shops near by. There is even a convenience store a block or two away just in case you forgot something.....like sunscreen! I felt safe... More

Perfect vacation spot. 100 yards from the beach. Will be going back soon. Room was a little small, but very clean and quaint. Loved to be able to walk to almost everything. Free parking and free internet a big plus. Breakfast needs to be improved, but not complaining because it was free.

This was our second time back to Tamarack Beach, and we have been very pleased both times. Staff is unfailingly pleasant; our large, ocean view room was delightful, and well worth paying extra for. The beach is literally across the street, and it is lovely--and not terribly crowded. Easy walk to shops and restaurants in the town center. We'll be... More

We just got back from our Carlsbad vacation staying at the Tamarack Beach Resort ... Our poolside courtyard room was spacious and the free breakfast was quick and easy for our daughter and granddaughter who took off for Legoland! The beach directly across the street provided the perfect spot for walking, reading and jumping waves ... The resort was comfortable,... More

We ALWAYS enjoy our stay at this lovely property located across the street from the beach and within walking distance of Carlsbad Village. Spacious, clean rooms and convenient underground guest parking are added attractions.

After looking for a one night getaway in the greater San Diego area, settled on the Tamarack. We had been by it many times and liked that it is right across from beach access. Easy check in, parking underground, clean room. Our entryway carpet was damp (so don't walk around in socks), but we've found this the case at many... More
