Wonderful family hotel

Posted Jul 23, 2014
We loved staying here. We brought our 3 little girls and it was very convenient to walk across the street to the beach. My kids loved the pool and the breakfast each morning was great! We will be coming back next year:)

GREAT LOCATION!!!!!

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Location to the beach, underground garage, causal seaside vibe!.
Cons: The air conditioning unit was very loud.
Location: The beach is directly across the street, food walking distance, 5 minute car ride to shopping.
I love the location, right across the street from the beach. Walk 2 seconds to the crosswalk & you are at the beach! The hotel is casual & clean with a nice pool! The rooms are comfortable & you can request an ocean view, which I will do the next time. If you have a room near the courtyard, you may hear some people gathering & talking until about 10pm but nothing crazy. The air conditioning unit is loud though & a tad disruptive but we were exhausted from the beach, so we were still able to sleep.There is underground gated parking, I never moved my car. There are lots of eating places around that you can walk to. The morning breakfast is ok-bagels, cereal, yogurt, fruit. It has a great seaside casualness, safe vibe, family oriented. We went during 4th of July weekend so the rates were a little high but well worth it based on the location & garage. I am going to be watching the rates, I intend to visit several times a year.

Close to the beach

Posted Jul 9, 2014
I booked this hotel because of the convenience of being so close to the beach. It's a nice hotel but my few negatives were that the pillows were too lumpy, the air conditioning made a funny sound all night so I didn't sleep well at all and the curtains were see through so I had light coming in my room all night

Tamarack's best attributes are its location and staff. The car stayed in the parking garage for our entire stay. Beach, shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. A rarity is the free (underground) parking. The one factor which would make me think twice about a return visit is the bed. It was so uncomfortable, we actually considered leaving a day early rather than spend another night on the bed.
