I am a local San Diegan and I frequent the Tamarack Beach Resort Hotel for weekend getaways. I absolutely love the Tamarack. The hotel is charming, the rooms are nice, especially a room with a balcony. There is a rooftop area to catch the sunset with a cocktail, a nice courtyard to gather with friends or relax by the pool... More

How much more convenient can you get than right across the street? We stayed just one night but found the check in process quick and easy, our room was clean and spacious, and best of all, right across from the beach. We used the hot tub, which felt amazing after a long day of travel and sightseeing. Loved the robes... More

One of the best parts of staying at the Tamarack Beach Resort Hotel is that you have a choice between a typical hotel room and 1 or 2-bedroom condos. Nearly all units have at least partial ocean views; the ocean front units are super! I've stayed in the Hotel with a partial ocean room view that was amazing. I've also... More

Stayed here previously and had a good experience so thought we'd book here again. Sorry we did. Started off at the reception with staff who obviously didn't want to be there. Our room was aweful. It was a handicapped room with a courtyard view. The bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were like rocks. We couldn't open the curtains otherwise... More

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...

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.

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
