Right across the street from the access point for the beach. Refrigerator in room. Will provide roll-away if needed. Restraunt adjacent to property. Secure underground parking included. Nice pool and 2 hot tubs (one...

Hi Ms. Marchetti, I am delighted you were able to enjoy some R& R on the beautiful southern Cali coast. Please come back and see us again. Our primary goal is to be #1 and our strategy is to take Carlsbad one guest at a time. With that being said it was truly our pleasure! Warmest regards, Monica Garcia Front...

Just a block or so from the Carlsbad Village area, the Tamarack provided my wife and me a nice beach getaway from the 100-degree temps in our part of town. We didn't hit the pool--loads of other families did though--but the Pacific Ocean is just across the street. Our room had an ocean view, and the balcony made for a...

Considering we booked the day before, we got a spectacular deal. The hotel is right across the PCH from a beach access ramp and surf shop that offers lessons and beach umbrella and chair rentals for a really reasonable rate. We had an ocean view on the first floor, which was perfect for watching the sunset. Afterward, however, the PCH...

This was a wonderful place to stay for an overnight in Carlsbad. Very close to everything we wanted to do, so we could just walk everywhere. We had an ocean-view condo on the 3rd floor and the view was amazing. The front desk staff was very nice and very accommodating when we called to get a late check-out. The condos...

Wonderful location, right across from beach and the path you walk down to get there, and only a few blocks from main Carlsbad town area so you can walk to dinner and shops. The ocean view was nice with a balcony, although there is a street and traffic right there. If you aren't a timeshare owner, you only have choice...
