My family and I live about an hour away from Carlsbad and have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. We even booked several rooms last year to celebrate my daughter's graduation. It is very clean and the staff is wonderful. It is so nice to have the choice of barbecuing at the hotel or walking to one of the... More

This hotel is very nice, but very expensive. We stayed 6 nights and it cost 1400.00. The rooms are big and I paid the extra to partial Oceanview, however because the grounds were not maintained there were several huge bushes blocking my view of the ocean. If you stay in the rooms on the bottom floor (mine was 121) make... More

My husband and I just enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay at the Tamarack. In the past we have stayed at a nice resort down the street, but the Tamarack is our new favorite hotel in Carlsbad. We had an ocean-front room which was truly spectacular. Although I understand all of the hotel rooms are located on the first floor (the... More

Great stay again at the Tamarack. Opted for the partial ocean view room which still has great ocean views and less street noise. Daily breakfast is very good which includes hot choices as well as cereal, breakfast bars, yogurt, juice coffee/tea (coffee pot in room also). The hotel is well maintained/clean, and staff friendly/helpful. The resort has pool and spa... More

After researching every single ocean view lodging option all the way up the coast from San Diego, we finally found this one. It was perfect! What originally sold us was that when we called to check, they were willing to give us a government rate for being a non-California state employee (the others all do California only). The free parking... More

Nice to get up in the morning and jump on the promenade for a quick surf check and relaxing... More

I am back from spring break in Carlsbad and have been busy online making sure I secure another stay at Tamarack Beach Resort. We loved everything! Garage parking under the hotel was free and simple. Our check-in was efficient and pleasant, and the friendly person at the front desk gave us exactly the room with an ocean view and balcony... More

We stayed here during spring break for four nights, and it was absolutely fantastic. The king room with a full ocean view is the way to go! There was a very nice continental breakfast each morning that also included bacon and sausage, along with several choices, including bagels, danishes, yogurts, and cereals. We especially enjoyed sitting out on our room... More

We were very happy with this hotel. We were given a room with a corner balcony facing the ocean on the 1st floor, amazing view. While this hotel is a bit older, it is built well and the rooms are a bit larger which is nice. We were concerned about the noise of the traffic at bedtime, but the heavy... More

I stayed here for two nights while attending a meeting. A nice location, right across from the beach. The hotel provides a simple continental breakfast, underground parking, and a fiendly and helpful staff. I'm not sure I'd call this a resort, but the price is reasonable for the location.
