Everything you need at an affordable price in downtown LA. Staff were very friendly and informative on check in. Room was clean and plenty of parking available. Could do with some more substantial curtains for privacy but other than that a great stay in the city of LA.

Very warm and helpful reception (a welcome pack with snacks). Clean and nice room, Very near to city center (walking distance). There were written helpful advices, maps and address lists available in the room. It would be nice if there was a microvawe in the room.

Just a short drive from Downtown Los Angeles (and about 15 minutes on foot), this small family run motel is a good choice for a traveller on a budget. The motel is simply furnished but has everything you need (including a fridge) and having walked around a lot in white socks I can testify that it's clean! Warm greeting at... More

Jerry's motel a like finding a little secret that others don't know about. This small hotel is centrally located in downtown Los Angeles. It is extremely comfortable, in an area you can feel safe walking in day or night, and close to all downtown. The welcome at front desk was warm and informative. I was handed a welcome bag with...

Clean and comfortable, I recommend Jerry's for a short stay in LA. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. The only downside? Probably the location, as downtown LA isn't my favourite. But you can't hold that against Jerry's; they're lovely.

Although we couldn't check in until about 2.30pm (after a very long, tiring journey) the staff allowed us to drop off our bags and use the bathroom, they also explained where we could spend our time and provided a map. Upon checking in they provided a snack pack and answered all questions we had. The bedroom itself was clean and... More

Nice and clean, lovely staff, and an excellent base to explore L.A. from. A 20 min walk to downtown, the area the motel is in is fine but don't expect Beverly Hills, it's just standard big city grit and grime though. That's just the neighbourhood though - Jerry's itself is absolutely great, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and... More

Jerry's Motel was just what we needed after a long night at the Hollywood Bowl. It was close, it was clean, it was comfortable, and it was competitively priced. We would most likely stay here again if we are in the area. The little touches and overall friendliest make this place a go-to spot.

I just read the previous review where the person was scared to go out at night in the neighbourhood! We spent four nights at Jerry's Motel and I can assure you the area is safe and fascinating. We didn't have a car and the manager gave us a loan of Metro cards which we loaded each day for $7 giving... More
