Rest Haven Motel
Ranked #33 of 36 Hotels in Santa Monica
Reviewed 4 October 2010

The Rest Haven Motel went out of its way, as usual, to make my stay of one week an enjoyable one. RHM is not a luxury resort, nor does it try to be; the service, however, is not lacking. Clean rooms, daily maid service, and well-appointed rooms make RHM a top value and a serious consideration for the budget traveler. The motel also responds efficiently to guest complaints; Jannet and Fred, your hosts, like happy guests as much as the guests do. You won't get a mint on the pillow, but you will get a clean, comfortable room at a decent rate. The Rest Haven is also within walking distance of the beach. Additionally, the safe (free), HD television, and friendly service are icing on the cake.

We stay for five nights and we very pleased. We had rooms in the yard (not in the front just against Jack In A Box). The yard was nice, quiet and tidy. We ate our breakfasts there and enjoyed the sun/shade and the quietness. The rooms were cleaned every day, the bathrooms were shining. The beds were excellent. And Janet in the office was soooo nice. If you want anything, just ask her. For the price this was the best in the US (and we stay both on the East & the West Coast). If I ever go back to the LA-area I'll sure stay here again!

This motel was ok.
We didn't have much choice really as we were on budget as traveling USA, it was cheap for santa monica! You do need a car though to get around from this area! The room was very very smelly! It smelt like the toilet was leaking! Not nice! The Walls were very thin! I couldn't sleep one night as I could hear next door snoring! And the jack in the box in the motels car park was a 24hr fast food drive through! So loud! Didn't feel that safe either with men hanging about outside! One good thing was the lady at front desk who I think owned the motel, she wad sweet! It was cheap-ish! But for the smell you got with it I'm not sure it's worth it!
