“Very Good Option for Downtown LA”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I spent a week at Jerry's recently and really enjoyed it. The hotel is located very close to downtown and several freeways. The immediate neighborhood has some stores but not much that as a tourist you're going to visit. For me that didn't matter as I was only using the hotel as a place to sleep and spent most days traveling around LA. The central location was convenient for me.

The room was clean, bed comfortable, free parking next to hotel, good TV coverage, in-room safe, goodie basked upon check in, friendly staff. To me the room looked as if it had recently been refurbished.

The price for downtown LA was quite nice. Doubt I would have gotten such a good deal in other hotels.

I can't say anything about public transportation as I had a rental car and that worked just fine with Jerry's.

I'd recommend this hotel.

I really didn't know what to expect when I picked Jerry's Motel for our recent stay in LA, though I was definitely influenced by the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Jerry's Motel was a very pleasant surprise tucked away off a side street in the shadow of downtown LA. We felt we had all the necessary amenities, staff was very friendly and accommodating, we were exceptionally close to all the freeways we needed to get to friends and family and it was inexpensive to boot! We will definitely stay at Jerry's the next time we return to LA.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms would be preferable because you wouldn't have the noise from people above you...

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.
