“Bad communication”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

I haven't actually stayed at this hotel because of their poor communication. I sent in my submission 3 times to get a room and never heard back from them. I called after a week and they informed me they had never received my submission and they were all booked. By now everything else is booked up. Horrible service, didn't even apologize.

The location is central, walking distance from downtown.
Despite its central location it is very quiet.
The rooms are clean and spacious.
Serious wi-fi service and great tv-set.
The owner is extremely fair, makes all its efforts to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable, from fixing everything that could eventually be wrong with internet or so on, to finding you the best solution for dinner.
Definitely recommended!

Stayed here for a couple nights in LA very centrally located to downtown LA and very easy drive to universal studios..... The free parking is a definite plus..... When we turned up at night I was a little skeptical of the neighborhood looked a little sketchy but definitely had no problems.
Service was good and friendly and rooms were clean, can't ask for much more for the price and location

We were looking some something cheap, clean and well rated. Well, we found it. This place is great. Very cetrally located which was awesome and the rooms were very clean. There is a safe in the room which was great. All in all, I will definitely stay here again! Don't be scared by the location, it's LA not Beverly Hills!

The motel itself was clean and cheap with free parking, flat screen, safe, free wifi microwave and fridge. The location is convenient. Easy to find and get places from (downtown, santa monica, hollywood etc). The area however is a bit run down and I would not walk around after dark. That said I think that's true of a lot of LA.

We went to Jerry's Motel for 3 days to visit LA and it was great. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and the price was affordable. The location is great if you intend to go to an event in downtown LA. It is also pretty easy to get around, since Jerry's motel is near a metro station. The staff was also very friendly.

Jerry's wife and daughter were over-the-top friendly, helpful and accommodating (We only met Jerry at check-out, but I'm sure it runs in the family!)

Jerry's Motel is clean, the beds are comfortable - and what a price! I was on a college visit trip with my daughter and she was equally impressed.

Room Tip: We had the corner room on the first floor - very quiet and comfortable.
