We stayed at Jerry's during our trip to LA in Nov 2011. We have a 2-year old toddler with us and the motel is well-suited for families - very secure. Its location is just right, easy access to most attractions in LA. We rented a car and the free parking was just fantastic. Rooms were cleaned every day and the facilities in-room (tv, heater etc.) were so much better than a four star hotel we stayed at prior to arriving in LA. When we misplaced our key-card to the room and had to wake Jerry up when we returned to our room late, he did so with not even the slightest gruntle. When we asked for the nearest shop to buy water for our baby, he gave us a gallon of distilled water for free! In fact, we were even given fruits upon check-in when Jerry's wife learnt that we had not had our lunch! Really impressive, personalized service from the heart - if we were to ever be in LA, our first choice will definitely be Jerry's Motel again!

Room Tip: there's no elevator (the motel's only two storey high). If you'd prefer not to have to c...

We traveled around USA for 3.5 weeks, staying at different style of accommodation from B&B to hotel to motel and Jerry's Motel was one of the best place to stay during our trip. It's not a luxury but adequate and very comfortable. Room is clean and equipped with basic necessities. Location is close to downtown. Jerry and his wife Nila are over the top friendly and helpful. They helped us a great deal with direction, taxi reservation, etc. Would definitely come back for more if we have the chance to visit LA again.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Being a single traveler, it was nice to have somewhere friendly to come home to. TV had hundreds of channels and was large. The place was clean and basic. Price was excellent.
I was initially worried that the public transport was not good, as I didn't have a car. However, bus route 16 stopped right outside and came every 5-10min goes directly to Pershing Square train station (where you can catch red line train to hollywood and universal studios). Bus 16 also goes directly to The Grove/ Farmer's market where you can have delicious food and good shopping (although about 40min ride). Bus to santa monica was also easy to get.
The area is bit dirty (eg street garbage) but I always felt safe, lots of kids around as next to a school.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice cheap hotel.

My partner and I stayed here 3 times on our travels around the world in Aug 2010. Jerry the owner is very friendly and very welcoming. He offered us plenty of nice cold bottled water in the 40deg heat when we arrived. The room (asked for the same room each time) was nice and cosy, like old English style. Everything was available, nice hot shower, free wi-fi, free toiletries, and a great huge comfy bed. Jerry's will be the only place we will stay if visiting LA again. The motel is only 10-15min walk to Downtown LA....we had a great time...it's a real gem.
Jerry even went out of his way to drive us to the airport. Great hospitality...

My wife and I were in Los Angeles in August and she discovered reviews for Jerry's on Trip Advisor. We already had accomodations elsewhere, but were intrigued by the rave reviews and drove by for a look at the place. We decided we would give Jerry's a try the next time we were in LA...and did just that last weekend. Jerry's lived up to all of the superlatives we read on Trip Advisor. We knew what to expect...this is not a high-end hotel, just a clean, comfortable motel at an excellent price. Jerry's met these requirements: we wanted a very clean room, a comfortable bed, hot water, and a secure setting. Plus there's free parking and a central, convenient location. All for $75 per night. Jerry told us the price is going up to 80 or 85 next year. That will still be an excellent value. We will be back!

I was traveling Solo in LA for a few days an needed a convenient place to stay for a few days. Jerry's was basic but included everything I needed including a fridge and a microwave. Located about a 10 walk to parts of downtown it made the perfect location to explore other parts of LA. Great simple service and plenty of TV channels. for the price you can't go wrong.
