“I'll Be Staying Here Again! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Great place thats only minutes away from Chinatown, downtown L.A & Staples Center. Only 20 minutes from Hollywood & 30 minutes from Venice beach & Santa Monica pier. Owners give you a gift bag with goodies upon arrival as well as a list of nearby restaurants, grocery stores and site seeing attractions along with the direct addresses. Makes it so easy to just enter the address into your gps and go! The room I stayed in was modern, always kept clean & the area felt safe. I WILL be staying there again whenever I return to L.A!

Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. This is the perfect LA motel as a base for exploring the city and surrounds, or for starting and ending your western USA trip. Its an easy walk to downtown, including access to the LA metro system. The staff are friendly and a great source of advice on transport and dining options. They stored some excess luggage between visits and on my day of departure - all done with a minimum of fuss. This motel is great value for money.

Room Tip: I stayed in three different rooms on the top floor and all were good.

What a lovely surprise. The motel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the room was neat and clean. The staff was friendly. I loved the little bag of snacks. I was a wary of the instant coffee, but even found that surprisingly good. The bed was comfortable, too. I would recommend.

This is not a standard USA motel. It is just as described on its website and most definately worthy of the tripadvisor awards. Rooms are comfy, quiet and well equipped. Location is perfect for the up and coming downtown area of LA. No shady characters or late night noise. Off street parking, local shop next door and some great places to have breakfast or evening meal within 5 mins drive, all with valet or approved parking. The area is pretty much like Canary Wharf in London - city tower blocks and cute places to eat. Try ihop for breakfast and the Engine Co. No. 28 or next door at Cucina Rustica for dinner - wonderful !

Room Tip: small motel - all rooms good, only ground and 1st floor (stairs) but has a disabled ground floor roo...

The location was good, if you want to stay in downtown L.A. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Rooms were clean and didn't feel old - all though maybe not to the highest interior standards. However, considering the low cost, this was a great hotel.

Excellent & friendly staff, we were able to check in early which was very accommodating. Room was small but neat, tidy & suitable for our needs, aircon & fridge was a little noisy at night but that is the only negative thing I can say. I would totally recommend Jerry's if you are looking for friendly, neat, affordable accommodation for a short stay in L.A
