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.
