Tamarack's location is ideal in Carlsbad. We had an interior room with no balcony. The balcony rooms look amazing! Dini's drinks and food is some of the best in Carlsbad. The continental breakfast was very well done.

We LOVE the Tamarack!!! We have spent our anniversary here for the past 12 years as a couple's getaway to just relax at the beach. The resort is always clean and the staff is accommodating. We have always asked for an ocean view room because I enjoy sitting out on the balcony and enjoying the ocean. Highly recommended!!!!

We discovered Tamarack through trading our timeshare. We have been coming here for ten years. It's a place where you can bbq, or go to a restaurant. Any time we go to Carlsbad, we stay here. Can't go wrong with the hotel or the timeshare rooms.

The location is perfect! The beach is right across the street, and everything you need in town is within walking distance. The room was spacious, and clean. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We had no problem when we asked for a rollaway bed. The complimentary breakfast is a little lacking in fresh/healthy options.

Great place to stay if you like the laid-back coastal town atmosphere. The staff has always been great. The rooms are constantly being updated. The resort is located right across from the beach. There are numerous shops and restaurants within walking distance. Freeway access is about a 1/4 mile away and San Diego is about a 45 minute drive.

I LOVE this place! We've stayed here many times over the years, and each time is just wonderful. Called on a Monday to get a room for 4 nights the same week. No problem! First two nights were in a partial view ocean room. It was spectacular. The room faced a side street but it was fabulous. Great view of...

This hotel is a bit on the dumpy side. The girls at the front desk are not that helpful. The room itself could use an update. I smelled mildew when I walked in. The bathroom had plaster coming off in a corner. The location of this hotel is excellent and the breakfast was good. I would not stay here again....

We stayed in the hotel part (not the time share part) which is located on the PCH side of the property. Exterior is well maintained and literally sits right on a beautiful palm tree lined section of PCH. The property has underground, secure parking which is a nice bonus. Our room was on the main floor and our balcony was...
