“Well rested”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2012

This is a really nice place to stay, clean and quiet, not far from the Casino.
This is my first time in Buellton, came down to Santa Barbara to celebrate my Birthday. Had a relaxing stay. Looking forward to seeing more of the town and hanging out. Going Wine tasting on Sunday and from what I understand this is the Wine Country. Bottles Up.

This motel was a very typical "along the highway" motel that one can find in hundreds of places around the USA. The room was a nice size, the in-room refrigerator and microwave were a nice touch. Our room was clean, the bathroom spotless, and the motel property appeared to be well cared for and tidy.

The room wasn't great -- dirty carpet, horrible old furniture, old TV. Breakfast is non-existent if you don't want to eat a pre-packaged danish. We stayed one night, and would have stayed in Solvang if something was available. Meh... pretty much.

Room was ok, beds were marginally ok. Bath was clean, with nice towels. Rolls, coffee, and juice in the gazebo for breakfast. Refrig useful for supplementing breakfast. For some reason it seemed 'difficult' to check in, and we thought the room was a bit pricey for what we got. Our group stayed at this hotel, but if we are ever back in this area, I think we will try the hotel across the fwy.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms in the back are quiet.

Pea Soup Andersen's Inn is a basic travel hotel that happens not to be part of a national chain. It is inexpensive and clean. The front desk staff are helpful. And it is close to several common travel attractions in Buellton, including Alma Rosa Winery and the Hitching Post. It is probably best for budget travelers and those traveling with children. It is not a good choice for luxury travelers.

The property sits adjacent to the Pea Soup Andersen's restaurant, gift shop, etc. It is basically like a national chain budget travel hotel or motel, except it is affiliated with Pea Soup Andersen's rather than, say, Best Western. It is your simple two-floor motel layout, with outside doors facing the parking lot, patio/balcony door overlooking the swimming pool and hot tub in the center courtyard, and no-nonsense front desk staff. Our room was completely clean, and nicer than many rooms in similar hotels, with a new flat panel TV, refrigerator, and microwave available in the room. We stayed there on a less-busy weekday, but even so there was very little in the way of noise, which can sometimes be a problem in this type of property. The only downside is that we couldn't use the hot tub, as it was occupied by a large (in number, not individual size) family with many children. Likewise, we stayed out of the pool area. But if you have children, the pool/hot tub area is probably a great place to hang out after a hot day.

The primary virtue of the property is that it is convenient to many local area stops, particularly for those travelers who are recreating the Sideways movie in whole or in part. Hitching Post is a half-mile down the street, and easily walkable. The Alma Rosa Winery tasting room is a short drive or, for the more adventurous, bike ride away. And Ellen's is a nice local spot for breakfast if you choose to go out rather than stay in the Pea Soup Andersen's compound. Even with the discount restaurant coupon, we went elsewhere for food, so I can't speak to the dining portion of the Pea Soup Andersen's experience. But overall, this is a nice clean budget hotel that offers good value at a convenient location for your Buellton area adventures.

Housekeeping obviously doesn't step inside the bathroom and close the door to clean everywhere. When I went inside the bathroom to take a shower, I shut the door and turned back around. On the floor where the door had been was all sorts of hair. Very gross.

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

this place was amazing! of course I have been going to the restaurant for years for the Split Pea Soup (I am 50), but have never stayed here; i moved up to the bay area years ago, and this was a nice trip to solvang area on my way home from LA;

my family used to stay at the motel 6, but after reading reviews here, I noticed that motel 6 rooms were so very small in comparison to this place; we decided to stay here instead, the rooms here are great - nice and large, very well updated, new TV's (well actually we had 2 adjoining rooms, one had a new TV the other didn't), extremely comfortable and great air conditioner that is on a thermostat. quiet and easily located right off the main road; this actually ended up being cheaper than motel 6 would have been and so much niceer, I highly recommend this oldie but goodie!

there is a pool and some sort of breakfast items, but we did not partake in either of these things, so I can't comment on them;

front desk staff is very friendly and helpful and was able to accommodate our requests of being on the first floor

everything in room worked perfectly, great water pressure, hot water, and oh yeah, a refrigerator in the rooms!

one thing though, they do have free wifi, but it only seems to work if you are in a certain part of the motel, but the modem in the room does have a ethernet plug that you can plug a cord into; if you don't have a cord with you (as i didn't) you can go to the local Radio Shack in town and get one....
