DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!! While the rooms were nice the service I received and the ATTITUDE I recived from them was horrendous. Tried to chuck me out after one nights stay due to unavoidable circumstances. Close to the beach was it's only benefit, no care for the people staying at all by owners/runners but rooms well maintained.

This motel was approx 20 minutes from LAX, and a 15 minute walk to Santa Monica Beach. Felt safe in the neighbourhood and Found it handy to have a Jack in the Box next door. Our room was behind a locked gate and well lit at night, so felt safe. It was also very quiet. The room itself was basic...

Don't stop here for resting. It is dirty and very expensive. Me, my wife and my daughter stayed there for two nights in March 2016and we lived a bad experience. The room smelled moisture, we plugged in the two electrical heating bodies (so dirty that we were loathing to touch it) to warm up the room. During the night some...

Great location, comfortable bed, the motel is a lovely place to stop for a night or to explore Santa Monica. The decor is sweet, customer service very good, an easy drive to the beach or a wandering walk. If you're a budgeted traveler - this place is great.

The location is fantastic. Close to the beech and a good price. The rooms were very clean, though quite cosy. The bed was comfortable, though pretty small. The family who run it are such sweethearts. Very welcoming, and it was the only place on our five week trip who let us choose our room! We loved that she allowed us...

Perfectly nice motel, a 15-20 minute walk from Santa Monica. Very friendly staff and clean rooms. There is a Jack-in the-box and a pub just outside (could be a bit noisy), so ask for a room in the back-yard.

A young man efficiently checked us in. The room was clean, it had wi-fi, cable and a parking spot for our car. It is in a good location and for Santa Monica the price is ok. The only bad thing is the homeless lady sleeping on the tree roots outside of the hotel. Very sad.

Spent the last night of our roadtrip here. The room is small and it wasn't perfectly clean, however it's ok for a one night stay. There's private parking for guests, which is good. It is very well located, right on Lincoln blvd, with easy access to Venice and Santa Monica. Close to LAX.

Stayed in this cute 60's style classic American motel for 7 x nights. Good location, can walk to Santa Monica or Venice Beach. A bit worn out however low rates reflect this. Very clean and functional though. WiFi and good shower pressure. My room had no air conditioning which I didn't mind, ceiling and 2 x floor fans supplied which...

I recently stayed at rest haven motel for two nights. It was my first time in Santa Monica/Los Angeles and I wasn't sure what to expect. I found the motel extremely overpriced for what you get.

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.
