Housekeeping staff was amazing. Kind and hardworking.

The room smell Of mold. Also took 3 hour wait to check into my room

The hotel overall was great. The WiFi however was terrible! 4mbps. That’s hardly worth having.

Great location and nice, comfortable rooms.

Had a nice four night stay at Tamarack Beach Resort. The ocean view patio was a great choice for excellent views and sunsets. The staff are very friendly! We found the breakfast host was hard-working and efficient to make sure our meals were available in a Covid-Safe manner. Thank you for a nice stay!

Great location and very nice front desk staff. Everything walking distance

It was close to everything. Everyone was nice. The facilities were clean.

First, Orbitz did not tell me that in booking the last room, we'd be in a handicapped room that was significantly smaller than the one depicted. The A/C was REALLY loud and even with earplugs kept me up at night. The toilet was also loud. We had to lift the handle after flushing and it continued to run for at least a full minute. The walls let sound penitrate so much that we could make out any conversation outside our doors. We faced the pool, so it was often very loud. The second day I didn't realize the staff had come in to change linnens and opened our room-darkening blinds, leaving only the shears over the very public window. I came in from the beach, took a quick shower and proceeded to get ready for about five minutes...before I realized the dozen people outside probably had as good a view in as I had out. The man who checked us in was very kind and apologetic about the room before we ever saw it. As it was completely booked, we didn't bother complaining. The breakfast was bland and limited, but I figure free continental is still free. I ate a boiled egg (not something I'd ever had for breakfast) and my husband ate a toasted english muffin each morning. Than we hit a pastry shop. Location is good, but the beach is steep, which I think is responsible for the waves crashing nearly right at the shore, so we had to walk or drive to a place we could boogie board without getting thrashed. They did have boogie boards to check out for free, which was great.

Jose and the staff were awesome. Location is perfect and our view was fabulous.

Right across street from the ocean. Town 1 block away.staff super friendly.

Great location, good breakfast, small resort. Staff friendliness: mediocre.

Loved Carlsbad!! Loved the shops and restaurants too!

The hotel was difficult to get in and out of late at night. YOu had to intercom into the hotel. It is shared with time share or vacation rental units which made the quality lowered. The hotel rooms are directly over a garage door and as the employees come to work in the morning the room shakes and it is very loud. Good luck sleeping in past 7!

The weather stunk, no fault of the hotel of coarse, they did have movies to watch, a ping pong and pool table to use, the workout room was great, and the location is awesome, so other than the weather we had a good time.

We love staying here.. It's so close to the beach.. there are a lot of restaurants around.. Will go back here next time.. Parking is also convenient

I have to say that the hotel staff were the highlight of the trip for me. They were so helpful and friendly and made the stay truly excellent. The rooms are a little old/outdated but clean and right on the beach so you can't go wrong there :-)
