“Friendly, convenient and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Small, clean rooms with a very comfortable bed. Double glazed windows mean hardly any noise during the night. Friendly and helpful service. Easy walk to NW part of downtown. Free wi fi is a great bonus and this is a hotel that offers great value. I was in LA for work and was really only using the room to sleep and shower, so it was perfect.

What a great find, we stayed for 3 nights on our way to New Zealand and what a perfect spot. Close to downtown, just off a main street for bus transportation. The staff was great, helpful, room was clean and had all you needed for a stay over.

This motel lived up to the reviews and the pictures! A really comfy, clean and smart motel, we were so pleased we chose jerrys as our accommodation whilst we stayed in LA. There is free parking and wi fi. It is a good 15 minute drive to sunset, but all in all a good base.

Check in was very easy, the gentleman that checked us in was very friendly and informative. He gave us mps, directions and advice-- and a little goody bag of snacks. The motel is very clean. It's close to dodger stadium and downtown .

This is why I love TripAdvisor: were it not for it, I never would have stayed at Jerry's Motel. Maybe I'm a lodging snob, but it just would never occur to me to stay at a motor inn in a big city. My feeling is that I'd rather pay a little more to stay at a place with interior hallways, a lobby and other things that convey -- even if they don't necessarily result in -- a higher level of service. But at Jerry's Motel, the savings is not minimal, and I was very, very happy with my stay.

Here are some things I loved about it: the location is very convenient to downtown, BUT IT HAS FREE PARKING! Unheard of anywhere else in LA, practically. There's a cheerfulness to the place, imbued by the staff, that defies seedy stereotypes of places like this. It's clean, well-kept and comfortable. Nothing is more wonderful about this place, though, than the price. $90/night. What a steal.

Now, if you are someone who is more comfortable with the predictability of a Hampton Inn in a suburban environment, this may not be the place for you. The surroundings represent urban Los Angeles, not Beverly Hills or West Hollywood. I like its lack of pretense, but it's not a fit for everyone. I also think that because we've all seen the seedy underbelly of LA depicted in TV shows and movies, it's easy to jump to conclusions about the Westlake neighborhood. It definitely can feel deserted at night and you'll need a car. But evil lurking around every corner? No... you just need to be smart.

At this price point, it's not appropriate to whine about anything. OK, I'll say this: the wi-fi wasn't great. BUT IT WAS $90/NIGHT!!! I used the personal hotspot on my phone instead... big deal. Jerry's Motel was fantastic. I'm sure I'll be back.
