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.

We recently spent six nights at the beautiful Tamarack Beach Resort. Although the hotel is an older establishment it is very well kept and maintained. The rooms were huge, the free breakfast was very good and staff response to any request was very very fast and courteous! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! The beach is directly across... More

This hotel is in great shape, well run and a great location in the center of Carlsbad. Our room was very large, had a king bed and a balcony with an ocean view. Free parking and a free waffle breakfast were welcome benefits. Located across the street from the beach and within walking distance of my restaurants.

We stayed for two nights in a partial ocean view room on Pine Street. Room was very spacious, beds and pillows were comfortable. Shower head was low and pressure was low, those are just about the only shortfalls, everything else about this property was excellent. The staff was awesome, rec room was very friendly, kids loved the ping pong and... More

When my wife and I arrived at our room, there was dried blood on both sheets. It was really obvious as well, meaning the cleaning staff just did not care. The front desk just dropped off new sheets for us to put on when we called about it. The shower had really poor water pressure. Not just bad, but you... More

Came down for a quick weekend the hotel staff is awesome the grounds are well maintained and the rooms are spacious. The partial view room had a patio and much more than a partial view. The breakfast was a very nice added value. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
