Thank you for your generous comments. As you said Rest Haven Motel is unique and in fact is a Land Mark in Santa Monica. 1950s ambiance is not everybody`s taste when it comes to hotel/motel choice, mostly are looking for ultra modern (ambiance). And, I...More
Resthaven was the cheapest hotel we could find in Trip Advisor's recommended listings for our one night stop over in Santa Monica. And one night would have been my limit.

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.
