We have owned two time share weeks here since 2000. Have only traded it once, we like it here so much we use our time as often as possible, which is almost always. Very well maintained, very clean and updated. Only a couple of hundred feet to the beach and 3-4 blocks to several good restaurants. Some people rent their...

This is our fifth visit to Carlsbad & our second stay at Tamarack. The Ocean View rooms are a must. Enjoy that you can be at the beach in minutes & food/shopping is all within walking distance. Continental breakfast is a plus & the room rates were reasonable during the month of September.

We LOVE the Tamarack. We have gone there every year for 13 years for our anniversary trip. The only issue I have with them is that you cannot request a certain room. We have our favorite room, for sentimental reasons, but are unable to request that particular room. However, overall this place is great!!! Highly recommend.

I stay at the Tamarack at least a couple times a year. The location is the best, walking distance to downtown Carlsbad & right on PCH- across the street from the beach. This property is on a corner with a street light so getting to the beach couldn't be any easier. Great patios on the street side, but the traffic...

While at the hotel there was some unexpected repair being done causing noise and debris on our patio. When I contacted the front desk Monica Garcia, Front Desk Supervisor not only offered us a beautiful room in an ungraded location but did so at the same price. Gracious and efficient guaranteeing our return.

We have been to the Tamarack Beach Resort several times and went again recently. The rooms have been updated since last year. The carpet has been replaced (much needed) and the furniture is new with a new mini fridge & microwave. The bathrooms are the same, but are a good size with a nice closet for hanging clothes.
