“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We recently spent six nights at the beautiful Tamarack Beach Resort. Although the hotel is an older establishment it is very well kept and maintained. The rooms were huge, the free breakfast was very good and staff response to any request was very very fast and courteous! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! The beach is directly across the street.

Room Tip: We had the panoramic ocean view room. It was great!

This hotel is in great shape, well run and a great location in the center of Carlsbad. Our room was very large, had a king bed and a balcony with an ocean view. Free parking and a free waffle breakfast were welcome benefits. Located across the street from the beach and within walking distance of my restaurants.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean facing balcony.

We stayed for two nights in a partial ocean view room on Pine Street. Room was very spacious, beds and pillows were comfortable. Shower head was low and pressure was low, those are just about the only shortfalls, everything else about this property was excellent. The staff was awesome, rec room was very friendly, kids loved the ping pong and pool table. The DVD player in the room with current titles to pick from was a plus. Grounds were clean and well kept, the staff mopped everything each morning. Great access to the beach, right across the street! I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Partial ocean view room gave a good view of the ocean from the balcony and Pine Street was very quie...

When my wife and I arrived at our room, there was dried blood on both sheets. It was really obvious as well, meaning the cleaning staff just did not care. The front desk just dropped off new sheets for us to put on when we called about it.

The shower had really poor water pressure. Not just bad, but you could not wash shampoo out bad. This was not a cheap hotel and my wife and I looked forward to staying here. Great location, but disturbing features.

Came down for a quick weekend the hotel staff is awesome the grounds are well maintained and the rooms are spacious. The partial view room had a patio and much more than a partial view. The breakfast was a very nice added value. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

My daughter and I recently stayed at this hotel and were very pleased with the beautiful location right across from the beach. Our room was large, tidy and pleasant. The hotel grounds were lovely and well maintained. We are already planning our next stay at the Tamarack Beach Resort.
