“A very pleasant surprise ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I had to find somewhere to sleep not to far from LA Convention Center as I was running the half marathon and I found this little motel ...
Free parking in the heart of LA with a room at a very reasonnable price , and a free snacks bag offered when you arrived ... it was just perfect ...
This is not a brand new motel but a very welcoming one !

PS : first time I got the whole registration process done on an IPad ! :)

I stayed at Jerry's hotel in October 2012. PROS: The location is convenient to downtown Los Angeles and Dodger stadium. The room is clean and well-appointed, including a mini fridge. Customer service is good and I was given a gift bag of snacks and waters at check-in. CONS: The parking lot is small and tight and doesn't contain enough spots for all the rooms. Parking on the street is difficult. Apartments surround the hotel and the occupants can be noisy. OVERALL, this is a great hotel if you're on a budget.

Jerry's Motel is a nice and tidy place to stay while in LA. The rooms are very good value and the owners are incredibly helpful. Worthwhile having your own transport in Los Angeles, especially if you're avoiding guided tours. The city's public transport doesn't cut it when compared to other large US cities.

It has all you need to spend a few confortable nights in Los Angeles. Car parking is for free which is great as parking in LA usually is pretty expensive (btw: you want to bring your/a car to L
A as the city is so big and public transport is not that good if you wanna do some sightseeing. We drove over 75 miles a day just in the city to see different spots and areas!)

Stuff was very friendly and check-in and out is very simple handled. When we arrived, we asked where we can find the next laundry place as we had to wash some cloths. They offered us to wash it with their stuff for free which was amazing as it saved us time and money!

Hotel got partly renovated recently (our bathroom was new and they did some work outside of the Hotel as well.

We would not have stayed at any other place ! The owners at Jerry's are the best. We had no idea what to expect but would stay there again on a return visit. Very clean and an easy drive to all locations. Thank you for the hospitality !
