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 the car at the hotel. Or if you are just going downtown for the evening,...

We booked ahead for our last night in America before our flight home at this great motel then found we were a day ahead on our road trip on Route 66. The manager, Janet, very quickly responded to our email and extended our stay to two nights. This motel was excellent. Clean, quiet and within easy walking distance for us...

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. Plus: The motel seems to undergo some renovation. Our room was modernised, convenient, clean. Flat screen TV, if you like to watch, good heating (cold days),...

I stayed there 3 or 4 nights a week for 4 months and I was always treated like a valued guest. I was given my choice of rooms, and something special to snack on was left by my bed each night. Great location to the Ocean, the Pier and Downtown Santa Monica. As an avid runner, I got to run...

I've come here enough that I now have a favorite room! Also I actually recognized another guest from last time; turns out this place has quite a few regulars.

It's hard to know how to write this, because I'm afraid I won't be able to convey how special this place is. First I'll tell you what it is not. I've stayed in many very nice chain motels and they have their place, but the Rest Haven is not that. It isn't a bland, generic tupperware box of a room,...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
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.
