The Rest Haven Motel is one of the most charming Mom and Pops I've ever had the pleasure to visit ... and I've stayed at a lot of them. The place has a real 1930's ambience to it and is obviously very lovingly cared for,...More

We stayed two nights and can only agree with all the positive reviews here, especially when you compare the nightly rate to other hotels in the area. Clean rooms, a terrific manager, and a great location. However, we would definitely opt for a courtyard room...More

Great if you are on a budget; where else can you find a clean and comfortable hotel only ten blocks from the beach for only $70, with a fridge, flat-screen tv, and free parking? Traffic and parking in Santa Monica are crazy, so just leave...More

I think most things about Rest Haven have been said in all the other reviews. It's a small, nice motel, quite central to Santa Monica. Most places in walking distance, good parking, food etc.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller
coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
