We arrived for a one night stay and decided we would like an ocean view to see the sunset. The gentleman behind the counter went above an beyond when we asked to be upgraded. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite with a picture perfect view of the ocean. This hotel is located in a ideal location in Carlsbad.... More

We stayed here over Christmas with family in a 2 bedroom which was on the 2nd floor, right over Dini's restaurant. I can't remember the room number but our patio/balcony was much, much larger than the others and was awesome as we had 3 toddlers who could play out there. You could also hear the ocean on the balcony (when... More

Nice hotel, clean room, spacious, helpful staff. Asked for a quiet room and got 3 great nights sleep. I had a partial ocean view room and since it is not on highway, but on a side street it was great to hear the waves and not very much street noise. I hardly heard the train at all. I was very...

More like 3.5 My folks booked the Tamarack for 2014's SD timeshare stay. We had a 2nd floor one bedroom; we wanted a 2 bedroom but that was not available. The location is great for strolling the shores day and night. Wish they could accommodate more than one car (I came separately), and would be nice if timeshares could get... More

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.
