“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

The rooms are lovely and big, with air con, tv, fridge and a big comfy bed. Room was cleaned every day. We actually told them one day not to bother because it was fine and we were hardly in it anyway! There's a shop right next door that has a cash point and sells juice and basics if you needed it. We were not bothered once there. In fact hardly spoke to the staff except on check in and to ask for them to call a taxi. We had a car and it was perfectly safe in their off road car park. Room felt safe. Would really recommend this! You would need a rental though or be prepared to pay for cabs.
We did find a laundrette and the likes of Taco Bell and McDonalds about a five minute drive away (if that!) and that was really helpful too.

Arrived at midnight. Swift, friendly check-in, with a bag of snacks/treats. Very nice. Simple, clean and comfortable room, with fridge and microwave, free wi-fi. Newly renovated. Quiet. Parking adjacent to rooms. A bonza deal in the middle of downtown LA.

We stayed here for four days. As motels go it had a clean room with decent furnishings and amenities as well as what looked like a newly updated bathroom. There was however a slight damp smell when you first walk in which I believe can be fixed with new carpet. Jerry's provided a good 'base camp' from which we drove from to get to our destinations for the day (premium outlets, Santa Monica, Disney land, staples center and downtown. Staff were helpful and professional. Even though the area may seem dodgy to non locals, they hotel felt very safe and I was at ease whilst leaving my luggage in the room whilst away.

Arrived and guy on front desk was extremely helpful, gave us maps, recommendations and top places to visit. Also received a snack bag on arrival which was handy.

Stayed in the room for two nights, does what it said on the tin. Clean, fridge, microwave etc. beds were made when we returned from sight seeing.

Hotel is in great location, I highly recommend hiring a car. The city is SO big, made such a difference getting about.

Big tip if you want to see the Hollywood sign real close, set the sat nav to Dohendra Drive (might not be correct spelling) absolutely fantastic pictures.

Brilliant stay at Jerry's!

Stayed in Sept 13.
Please don't go to this motel expecting a 5* hilton but it is a 5* motel in my opinion.
Very reasonably priced, rooms clean and spacious, bathroom very presentable and clean, parking is free, easy to locate and a =10 minute walk to the underground/tour bus. I never experianced any problems with the area but it might be a little rough for some people.
Staff go above and beyond with a welcome package, maps, advice and leaflets.
Brilliant stay.

We wanted something cheap and central, what we got was worth double what we paid! It was spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and friendly.

We where made very welcome. Although the location looks out of the way, it is easy to get transport. Just cross the road from the shop, (turn right out of the gate, keep going across road) grab the 316 or the 16 and get off at Pershing Square Metro Station, then grab the Red Line metro to Hollywood and Universal Studio!

One the way back, get of 7th Street, walk across to Rite-Aid and grab a cab, less than $10. Try Octopus Japanese Restaurant before you grab the cab!

I highly recommend this Motel, especially to my fellow Aussies!

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room if you have lots of luggage!
