Meant to write this review months ago, but guessing it is still accurate. Very difficult to find bargains in Santa Monica, so Rest Haven rates are attractive, however.....
Although our room was clean and cute, it was small with very creaky beds. My biggest complaint however was the fact that we were basically in the jack in the box drive thru, apparently a very popular place on a Saturday night. It was loud. So the first night we did not sleep much. Had already paid for 2 nights though, so luckily Sunday was quieter. If you stay here bring earplugs, maybe another fan for noise blocking, and expect creaky bed. Location ok, but you will need to drive to the nicer parts of Santa Monica. Liked the courtyard, we brought our jack in the box breakfast to the table there, quite pleasant. Overall I thought the lower price makes this a viable option if you are trying to keep to a trip budget in a very pricey area
