Pea Soup Andersen's Inn
A quaint economy hotel with some surprising bonus features.
Built next to the historic travelers' pit stop, Pea Soup Andersen's restaurant, this inn stands at the entrance to the Santa Barbara wine country, just off Highway 101. With 97 rooms arranged around an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, the two-story motel is livened up by colorful tile and paint. It's nothing fancy, but the rates are reasonable for the prime location. All of the ample-sized rooms have cable TV, refrigerators and microwaves, and the noisy air-conditioning is handy for blocking out traffic noise from outside. Some rooms have balconies or patios, too. Service is somewhat lackluster, however. The renowned Hitching Post steakhouse restaurant is only a mile away, and there are public golf courses also within easy driving distance if the hotel's putting green doesn't cut it. Children under twelve stay free when sharing a room with an adult, and a complimentary continental breakfast is served daily.
