Directly across the street from the beach, Tamarack provides an excellent escape from the cares of the world. The majority of the rooms face West, towards the Ocean, the balance overlook the Courtyard, where the Pool & Spas are located. Hotel guests are provided a complimentary breakfast every morning in the Recreation Room - Vacation Owners only coffee, but they... More

Great place to stay for a couple of days! I plan on staying here the next time my family is in Carlsbad. The staff were courteous and friendly. The location to the beach and restaurants is a real plus.

I had to give this 4 stars due to the amazing location literally a crosswalk accross from the beach and the super cute tropical feel with the terracotta tile floors, flowers and mexican blue trim. I wanted to give it 3 stars for these reasons. I was on the first floor namely room 121. This was a nightmare due to... More

Lovely hotel and location. Staff didn't interact with us much. Our room was beautiful with a view of the ocean and a major highway intersection with stop light shining in our room all night. There were no privacy curtains to draw over the sheers so people on the street had a lovely view of us in our room. Maybe other... More

Very nice staff, and always very clean. The out side walkways are mopped every morning with the local paper delivered, as you walk out to the best breakfast for everyone! Close to every amenity that would one would need to enjoy the area! Also, the outdoor gas BBQ grilles for the quest is a bonus.

Tamarack Beach Resort and Hotel is very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't beat the location. Carlsbad is a cute little town with lots of interested places to walk to. Just steps from the beach. Would have liked a small safe available in our room.

Nice Hotel across the street from the beach. Hotel is 3 stories, yet hotel rooms, only on floor 1, so not much direct ocean view. Wish we were told upon making reservations, that room was on first floor. Still great place.

I apologize that the room location was not disclosed upon booking the reservation. Unfortunately we are only slightly elevated from the street level and I agree that although you can see the ocean without obstruction it would be nice to see the waves crashing. Contact us directly for availability on our condos located on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The... More

Room 121 is too small with no view and no daylight. AC and electricity was on every minute we needed to stay in the room. The room was described as "interior view" at the front desk I was told the room had pool view/ It has wall/hallway view.

Hi Yelena, I apologize for the discrepancy in verbiage of the unit. The interior view rooms use to be know as pool view until more recently we decided interior would best describe the units , because yes not all of them have a view of the pool. My hope is that you contact me directly for a complimentary upgrade on... More

This place is simply a NO BRAINER. Price , quality, location, cleanliness and safety. The staff is extremely helpful and I still can't get over the price of the room. We usually pay double for similar quality in San Diego.
