My husband and I just enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay at the Tamarack. In the past we have stayed at a nice resort down the street, but the Tamarack is our new favorite hotel in Carlsbad. We had an ocean-front room which was truly spectacular. Although I understand all of the hotel rooms are located on the first floor (the second and third floors are timeshares), the patio is more like a balcony, as it sits up above street level. The panoramic ocean view from the balcony is beautiful. I will say there was quite a bit of street noise Saturday night, but for me that’s not a deal breaker at all. It’s just a byproduct of the hotel’s great location. Easy underground parking, wifi and a continental breakfast are included and there is no additional resort fee. Our room was updated and clean (no dark blue walls like those shown in some of the room pictures online). The pool/hot tub(s) area is very nice, with plenty of tables and chairs. There is a rec room near the pool with a ping pong table and pool table, among other things. I'm picky and this property was very clean. We saw the most beautiful sunset I have seen in my life from the third floor deck overlooking the beach. Jessie at the front desk was especially helpful and accommodating. In fact, all of the staff we encountered were friendly. I kind of hate to rave about the place online because I want to have ready access, but this hotel is a gem. I have already reserved an ocean-front room in a few months to celebrate my birthday. Family members who visited us there have also reserved a room. I can’t wait to go back. [Some older reviews mention a problem with water pressure. We didn’t experience that at all. Water pressure in the shower was excellent.]
