Just returned from our 2nd stay at Tamarack and we had such a wonderful time we have already booked for next summer. The resort is wonderfully located right across from the beach and within walking distance of downtown Carlsbad. The staff was wonderful and the accomodations were clean and well maintained. We ate breakfast every morning we were there and... More

This is a great place to stay if your looking for something close to the beach. My family really enjoyed staying here. We had a partial ocean view room which we could see the ocean from our balcony. Both the room and the balcony were large. The game room was a hit for my kids as was the free DVD... More

I would definitely come back to this hotel after the experience I had. It is right across the street from the entrance to Frazee Beach. There are many eateries and shops nearby within walking distance. The staff is extremely nice and friendly. There are DVD players in each room and they have a wide selection of DVDs you can borrow...

I was most impressed with the family atmosphere of this hotel. Young families with children seemed to be the norm. It has a pool, bbqs, library with movies, ping pong, pool table and other organized activities for the family everyday and a beautiful beach across the street. It is within walking distance to the train depot and a short drive... More

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
