The beachside community of Carpinteria offers a quiet and peaceful retreat for travelers. More than 13,000 people live in the city, but a larger number of people come here every year for the surfing and to view the native wildlife. Orbitz.com makes it easy to find Carpinteria hotels that fit your budget and travel plans.
Via Real is a small road that sits just a few blocks away from the water. Travelers often choose the hotels along this road because it puts them close to the beach but away from the crowds and noise heard at beachfront hotels. Hotels on this road are less than 10 miles from Santa Barbara, and visitors can find restaurants and attractions in the surrounding area such as the Tomol Interpretive Play Area. This attraction is a great place to take kids because it is a large outdoor playground that sits close to the water. Children can play in the ocean, try the playground equipment, and meet new friends. One of the hotels lining the road is the Sandyland Reef Inn, which has rooms from $55 per night. A hot tub and large outdoor swimming pool mean guests can dive into the water without making a trip to the beach. The hotel offers three different types of rooms, including those with double beds for those traveling with kids or friends. This pet-friendly hotel offers a continental breakfast and wireless Internet access for free, and it is only a mile away from the heart of the city.
Those who want to see the ocean every time they step outside should choose a hotel on Carpinteria Avenue. While several roads sit between this avenue and the beach, rooms on the higher floors have uninterrupted views of the water. Guests can reach the sandy beaches in less than 10 minutes from some of the top hotels. Another benefit of staying on this road is that you are close to the local surf shops and sporting goods stores. These stores have qualified experienced workers who offer lessons and classes on sports like scuba diving, surfing, and snorkeling. You are also just a short walk from the Tar Pits Park, where you can see tar spreading onto the beach. Native American tribes once used this natural tar as a waterproofing material. When looking for hotel rooms, consider the Best Western where rooms start at $129 per night. The AAA gave hotel a 3 Diamonds rating, and each accommodation has a flat-screen television equipped with cable channels and Nintendo games that you can play. The wild vegetation surrounding the outdoor hot tub and swimming pool give it a tropical feel, and the pool is heated for year-round use.
Carpinteria State Beach provides travelers with surfing opportunities, places to picnic, and outdoor sports like scuba diving and swimming. You can also relax with a frosty cold drink at the Island Brewing Company before or after you hit the beach. Find a wide range of Carpinteria hotels at a variety of prices when you use Orbitz.com.
