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

We have stayed at Tamarack before and went back again this year. It is a great place to stay if you want to hang out at the beach. It is right across the street from Carlsbad State Beach with a ramp to walk down. It is close to the Carlsbad Village where there are plenty of great places to eat... More

It was a nice place to visit and will likely make this an annual trip. Of note, I the "resort" rooms are much nicer... More
