We selected this motel for its price, location and the free parking. And it did not disappoint us. Yes, it is a bit old and odd and the walls are paper thin...,but hey..look at the price you pay for this! What matters is that the room is very clean room,the towels are clean, the staff is very friendly and you...

Jerry's Hotel is in a good location and you can walk to the downtown area in 15 minutes. Nice touches included a welcome pack, muffins and coffee, face towelettes which were replaced daily and a large walk in wardrobe. The female staff member was very helpful with tourist tips, a good map of LA and told us to use the...

We were attending a medical conference at Good Samaritan Hospital. Jerry's was right down the street and the price was very reasonable, so we gave it a go. Positives: The staff was as good as any 5 star hotel, extremely attentive, quick with delivering ice, silverware, etc. The bed was very comfortable, cool LED reading lights. Nice size flat screen...

Hi Andy C, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We truly appreciate your kind compliments about our staff. But we are sorry to hear our older property and dense, urban location did not meet your expectations. As a 1946 building, we are older with refreshed bathrooms, but an update to the hotel is in...

Overall was a good stay but then we are not fussy and we only stayed for one night. Room and towels are clean. Got the free muffins and mineral water. There's Subway and a cafe (Grace's Cafe) about 5 minutes walk away.

Great, safe location for exploring downtown LA on foot. Clean, comfortable room with premium linens, comfy beds, nice sized fridge & free treats. Personal & helpful 24-hour service. Some city noise, but definitely worth the trade for all the good points. Would request an upstairs room. Highly recommend for a city stay without high-priced amenities. I will be back. Thank...

Couldn't of had a better experience. Friendly knowledgeable staff and close to downtown L.A. Classic old school post war motel open since 1947(and under the same name). Clean, updated,comfortable and reasonably priced. Would gladly stay here again the next time I'm in town. Oh yeah, and free parking to boot!

Jerry's Motel is so fun: retro, simple, amazing location, funky. The staff is great, the little treats are a blast, the water is hot, the bed is comfortable. It is clean, and the sheets feel great. The price is amazing, and we loved our stay. It is one step from downtown's Broad Museum and the Contemporary Museum, along with the...

I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in LA without having to deal with cockroaches, noise and bad neighbourhoods and came across all the good reviews of Jerry's. The motel is a very good price located close to Downtown LA. The neighbourhood isn't fancy - just a working class neighbourhood. I found it perfectly safe. My room was very...

I was quite concerned about booking this motel for a week downtown LA especially for the price but I was pleasantly surprised . This motel is very small and not in the best looking area but It's well lit at night and we walked to places at night and had no problems with anyone. The rooms are small but kept...

A friend had recommended this motel a few months back so when I started looking for a place near downtown Los Angeles I decided to give Jerry's Motel a try. First off, it's substantially cheaper than most anything else in the area. It's not what you would call fancy but it's neat, clean and everything worked well. For a place...
