“Best Place in Coast”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I have been staying at this resort for over 5 years and its great for kids the activities were so fun and they even had wine and cheese for the adults. It's great for spring break. We always stay in the same room which is a courtyard room nice and quite and great access to the pool and recreational room. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. It's nice too because you can walk right across the street and there is the ocean and restaurants. You really don't even have to get into your car until its over. I will never stop going to Tamarack.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in room 117 its a corner and it's quite.

My family and I stayed on the first floor (hotel portion). The room was a good size and very clean with a mini refrigerator. The staff was nothing but pleasant and always helpful. My kids loved the recreation room and pool area (I think they preferred that to the actual ocean). Everyday offers a different activity like a puzzle contest or coloring contest. On Wednesday night, we all played in a Bingo tournament which was so much fun. We walked away with some great prizes. The hotel has excellent beach access. There is a light and crosswalk right there that we took our wagon across. We highly recommend this hotel.

We were given a room slightly before check in which was nice. the staff was pleasant.... unfortunately we were on the bottom floor and all we could see or hear was traffic... Had a nice stay...but may look for something away from the main roads in the future.

We stay here every time we visit Carlsbad. Clean, spacious rooms, patios and accommodating staff. We stay on the 1st floor and love the gorgeous panoramic ocean view. Great location for beach access and Carlsbad Village restaurants and shopping. Love the Tamarack!

We stayed in a a two bedroom suite on the third floor (343) The unit was very spacious and had beautiful views of the ocean across the street. This property is very well maintained, the staff extremely friendly and the location was convenient to restaurants and shopping.

Stayed here in a privately owned timeshare for 3 nights upon my husband's arrival home from overseas. He was amazed with how spacious and accomodating these rooms are. Not to mention how beautifully well-maintained the rooms are. They are extremely clean, you almost feel bad messing up the bed or throwing a towel on the floor. The view is great from the balcony. You can easily sit there and watch the sunset over the horizon. When our stay was up we went to find a cheaper hotel to save some money but ended up saying, "this place looks like crap compared to tamarack, let's go back!" And that's what we did! we checked out of the little hotel after 7 hours, called tamarack and said "we want to come back!" so they found us a hotel room with an oceanview as well and fit us right in. We honestly felt like we were back at home. LOVE TAMARACK! highly recommend 100%
