“Great value.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Found this place on TripAdvisor and very glad I did. Wanted to save some money so I could spend it on food and shopping instead so this place worked perfectly. Had the things I really needed, comfy bed, good selection of tv channels, free wifi and was CLEAN. Very convenient to major freeways which was good since we had rented a car. The staff was nice and helped us with a useful "gps" guide of LA tourist destinations. Highly recommended if you need a cheap clean place to spend a few nights in LA.

Room Tip: Make sure you take the free map at check in. It comes in handy if your GPS fails you like our did a...

The room was nicely done, clean and had a homely feel to it. We stayed 4 nights, floor towel was missing the last night, but it was no big deal. Not much restaurants around, but we had a car. Free parking for staying there!

I reserved a room at this hotel for 2/5/13. I was unable to stay at hotel due to family emergency. I cancelled the room at 11 am the day of the reservation and explained my reason for cancellation but was still charged for the room. The hotel has the right to set their own cancellation policy of 72 hrs notice for full refund. Just be aware of policy when you reserve a room. I am sure this is a good family owned hotel but I do not agree with their cancellation policy.

We are sorry to hear you are not happy with our cancellation policy. A cancellation policy is standard for all hotels, and we do our very best to have a clear policy that all guests are aware of prior to making a reservation. These details can be found on all confirmation emails, the Terms and Conditions box when you make a reservation, as well as in the Terms and Conditions section of our website.

Take care.

This was a great stay for a first stay in LA. Roseline was very welcoming and friendly (just what we needed after such a long flight!) she provided good information and free snacks upon arrival. The room was clean, bright airy and well equipped apart from a kettle which I thought would have been very useful. Free parking and speedy free WIFI
We would definitely recommend this place :)

If swanky and luxurious is your thing, this place won't work for you. But it is probably still the best bargain in L.A. for lots of reasons.
First of all, the owners are great! They work the desk and went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed, including directions around town. I had a problem with the internet (free) and the owner locked the office and came up to my room and fixed it right away. He also helped me secure parking when the motel lot appeared full.
The room has all the basic amenities and was clean. Not modern, but clean. It is an old two story motel which hasn't changed much since the 1950's, but it isn't run down. Cable TV with HBO is pretty standard everywhere, and Jerry's had these.
It is in a good central location, just north of the Santa Monica Fwy and walkable to all points downtown.
And the price...I paid $70, which includes parking and wifi.
Next time I need to spend a night in L.A. I will definitely be back to Jerry's Motel.

Room Tip: I had an upstairs room and it was very quiet.

Thanks to the hosts at Jerrys Motel, the service was very helpful, the room had all the facilities I needed. No undue noise from the neighbours. The location was excellent for me, close to down-town and bus services. Very satisfied guest!

I was nervous about finding a hotel in LA but felt very happy with Jerry's. The hotel had great proximity to all of the tourist attractions that we went to in LA and Hollywood. The free parking spot was great and the security cameras in the parking lot made me feel more secure. The hotel is right in downtown LA and maybe not within walking distance of many places but I still felt safe while I was staying there. They gave us the wireless internet passwords when we checked in and we had no problems with the connection. The room had everything we needed since we were not really planning to hang out at the hotel and the rooms did have a free safe. The price was right at Jerry's and it had everything we needed. The only complaint we had was that there is a club or something nearby that was playing music pretty loudly until pretty late in the night. But I would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again.
