“Fabulous customer service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Stayed one night at Jerry's Motel. I'm a single female traveling alone on her way to meet friends. The staff at Jerry's helped me around the clock with directions in Los Angeles. They were always just a phone call away. They stored my luggage after I checked out freeing me to see the sights. Hands down the nicest people. Fabulous value for the money. Exceptional customer service. The neighborhood is not nice...but you will feel safe at Jerry's.

Jerry's Motel is clean, well maintained and run by two lovely people who go out of their way to be helpful. Having no local knowledge, we had many questions of the owners, who went the extra mile to find out stuff for us. The bed was smaller than we expected but comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. Possibly not in the best location, but we felt comfortable travelling on the 16/316 buses into town and even walked home one night feeling quite safe. They even minded our bags for us when we had a full day to fill in as our plane didn't leave until 11.30pm.
All in all we are quite happy to recommend this motel to anyone who wants great value with fantastic staff.

We stayed at Jerry's for three nights in March. The other Trip Advisor reviews are pretty spot on. The rooms are clean and the bathroom in particular seemed brand new. The staff are super helpful - we called several times when the front desk was closed and they were more than happy to come up to our room with print outs of directions or whatever we needed. The little bags of snacks on check in are a nice touch too. The only downside is the location - it's not in the best neighbourhood and we weren't too keen on walking back to it after dark. Bus drivers don't really seem to know the location, but the 16/316 buses do go to the corner of Lucas and 3rd if you have have a chat to the drivers. There's always the option of catching a cab too. The biggest selling point though is the cost - we couldn't find anything in LA for this price that wasn't a dump. Overall, great rooms, great staff and great value.

Jerry’s Motel is a great example on how a business should be run. The motel itself is a small 10-unit place that on its own would probably get a three star rating. It’s very clean, but basic. However, the location (right downtown, about a mile from LA Live) combined with a great price raise it to a four star level. But I rated Jerry’s a five star, why? Because of the friendly staff! They go above and beyond to make your stay a special one. When checking in they start out by giving you a little goody bag of snacks. I stayed there while running the LA Marathon. After the race I was getting some ice and mentioned I had just finished the marathon and I had my best race ever. When we got back from dinner that night there was a bottle of champagne and two glasses sitting on our night stand, along with a note from the “staff of Jerry’s Motel” congratulating me on my marathon and getting my best time ever. Wow! Talk about the special attention to details. Between the staff, location, price and cleanliness, I would definitely stay here again.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at Jerry's for 3 nights in February. After a very long flight, we arrived late at night and were welcomed by an extremely friendly and accommodating member of staff, who was on hand for advice whenever we needed him. The room was very clean, modern and had everything we needed for our stay, including some nibbles and water to tide us over until the morning. This place got our trip off to a fantastic start, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a great value, comfortable stay in LA.

We found the motel clean and comfortable. Convenient to L.A. and surroundings. We take care of our 8 month old grandson two days a week and normally stay with old friends in Silverlake, and near our daughter's home. Since they had out of town guests we tried Jerry's and it worked out fine.

Stayed for three nights and Jerry's lived up to its Trip Advisor ratings. Staff really friendly and helpful, nice bag of snacks at check in and clean, comfortable and safe. Handy for shops, bars & eateries in Downtown LA.
