Clean room, spacious, first floor gets breakfast (not super fancy but good). Nice pool and hottub, additional children's hottub, walk across street to beautiful beach, many restaurants and shops nearby, easy freeway access. Great friendly staff!

Cons: Right on Carlsbad Blvd so the weekend nights are noisy. Breakfast is very limited and as others have noted some rooms, beds and bathrooms are a... More

The hotel is very nice with a great location. We had a partial ocean view, but because it was on the first floor, view was obstructed by poles, red light signal etc. Overall, we were happy with the experience at Tamarack.

Hi Chicky946 Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We truly appreciate it. We apologize for the obstruction in the view. A tip for the next time you stay with us: Please book an Ocean View. Although they are on the first floor you have minimal obstruction.

bathroom run down - should be remodeled and cleaned very thin blankets, no comforter had to ask for more blankets several times to feel like I was in a bed with a cover noisy room near court yard, stay in a room not facing court yard - don't expect to sleep in if you are in a courtyard facing room

Rooms with a view are superb. Sunsets through the palm trees are sooo beautiful. Nice rooms with outside alcove/balcony is perfect for relaxing and viewing/hearing the surf. 100 yards to the Pacific. I'll be back in June!

We've stayed at Tamarack Beach Resort on several occasions and have been very happy with the location and rooms. However, this time we had an ‘interior’ room which I would NOT recommend.

Get a streetside room to be able to hear the waves and experience the ocean atmosphere. Price is actually very good for a beachside hotel. Cute courtyard setting too, with pool and game room. Well worth the stay.
