We live in Carlsbad, but love to stay at this beach resort! It's a great getaway without having to book a flight out of town. Location, customer service, staff, having Dini's within walking distance and oh yes....the ocean at your front door is so wonderful! We will continue to stay at this resort as often as we can!

I have been staying at this hotel for the past 4 years pretty regularly between business and family holidays, it started out with business. I stopped my family in for 1 day during a Disney holiday last year to stop in and visit my customer and my family did not allow us to leave after 1 day .This year we... More

We found a great value just across the beach in Carlsbad in a well maintained unit at the Tamarack Beach Resort through an RCI timeshare exchange. Unlike many recent timeshare experiences this was in very good condition and had a very well trained staff. There is a lot to enjoy just exploring the Carlsbad area and the coastal trip towards...

Had an ocean facing room, first floor, which by the way sits directly on the Pacific Coast Highway -- 4 lanes of traffic at your mini-balcony. Oh, yes you can catch a glimpse of the ocean (across the traffic!). Bottom floor rooms are rented out as the hotel portion, higher floors are timeshare. Might be nicer in a higher, timeshare...

The ocean front rooms are well worth it. What a beautiful view, because that's why I come to Carlsbad, is to see the ocean. Room are clean and well kept. Just wonderful.

I loved Tamarack Beach Resort. The location is awesome - right across the street from the beach! Rooms were nice, clean and we had a nice partial ocean view from our patio. Complimentary breakfast was good. My kids loved the rec room - ping pong, pool tables and complimentary movie rentals.

My husband and I stayed here for one night while driving down the So-Cal coast. The hotel is in a good location, close to restaurants and Carlsbad nightlife. It also has a good bar; open late and with plenty of locals. If you're planning to have a late night though be warned: the rest of the guests at Tamarack weren't... More

My wife and I enjoy taking weekend getaway trips from our hectic lives in a Los Angeles suburb. On a recent business trip I saw what appeared to be a nice place just across the road from the beach in Carlsbad, CA, about 100 miles from our home. So when we found we had just one night we could slip... More

This really is a coastal paradise that is just across the street from the beach and in walking distance of shops and restaurants. The ocean view room was spacious and clean. Staff was polite and helpful. Safe, underground parking. Nice breakfast included. Only disappointment was that the spa was closed for maintenance on two occassions during our short stay. Heated...

It all started with Danny who helped us when we checked in - a day early. He was able to find us a room quickly and get us settled when our plans changed at the last minute. He was also very helpful getting us a cab that night. The room was very nice and clean. (The amenities could be updated,... More
