My Family has stayed at the Pea Soup Anderson's hotel twice now... The first time we "lucked out" and were able to stay in a Deluxe Suite with separate bedrooms, full kitchen and super retro but cute decor. It was right next to the registration area so it was not the quietest location but it accommodated our family of 5 beautifully.
This Easter holiday, the suite was not available so we set up in 2 adjoining rooms and it worked great. The rooms are nice sized, comfy beds and pillows, generously sized refrigerator and freezer plus a coffee maker. I love the bathroom space with separate shower/tub/toilet. The exhaust fans worked. You'd be surprised how many hotels have no fans or they don't work : / There was a closet in the vanity area. Only complaint was the water pressure on the faucet and no guest shampoos/sundries. We had to run to the CVS (walking distance) to get some items. No biggie, but would have been good to know.
My favorite part is that the rooms open up to a large interior "yard" with benches, turf, and a putting green. I used the space as a little "workout space" in the mornings while everyone was sleeping or delighting I the all you can eat Danishes from Olsen's Bakery served in the gazebo daily. I'm not a fan of pastries, but these were definitely worth a taste.
If you plan to spend lots of time in SOLVANG, then try to stay IN Solvang. This location is driving distance there but once in Solvang Village, parking is sometimes an issue. From Pea Soup, we were conveniently located to the restaurant of course for the "split pea soup tradition" as well as a really good Pizza Parlour (Genos), shopping, and a couple tasting rooms. A.J. Spurs & The Hitching Post a'la "Sideways" are a fair walking distance for most as well as the Ostrich Farm. We found Avant Tapas nearby---cute winery/bistro as well as a gym.
Overall, if you have kids and don't need fancy, this is a good value.
Locate in the back of the hotel. No freeway noise.
