About us


Founded some 80 years back, it is considered on of the first motels in the area. The Rest Haven motel is nestled in the middle of sunny Santa Monica. The place is close to tourist favorites such as the 3rd Street Promenade, Venice Boardwalk, and of course the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Charming rooms and tranquil courtyard makes this place ideal for discovering Los Angeles.

This was in big part achieved by a true dedication of our whole staff to make sure that everything from rooms to dinners is excellent.

This is no wonder, as our motel has an edge over our local competitors, thanks to the supreme quality of our rooms, our expansive list of additional amenities, our affordable pricing.

This means that our motel is a perfect getaway both for people traveling on business errands, just as well as for tourists!

We had a late flight from NC and arrived at 10pm. I had called them ahead to let them know we were coming late. Hector greeted us when we arrived and he even moved his car to let us park our SUV in a spot.

We had a great stay, manager’s son served us and even showed us our room and was very sweet and helpful.  Very homely feel, was nice and quiet, and close enough to walk to main street of Santa Monica…
