I stayed for al longer time at Jerry´s Motel and can only recommend this place. Negative? No breakfast - there are several places nearby where you can get a perfect breakfast, I fell in love with Gus´s Drive-In. No pool - maybe a negativ argument for American travelers, especially at summer. I don´t missed it. Possitive! Perfect located to discover...

OK - so it's not in the most central part of town, but its CLEAN and SAFE and WELL RUN! We decided to try Jerry's because we wanted to spend our money enjoying LA for the weekend and not on the hotel itself, and we read all of the reviews on TripAdvisor and took a chance. We are very happy...

The woman who checked us in was friendly, providing us with a welcome bag and directions to a good place to eat (although they ended up being closed that day). Check-in was quick and check-out was even easier (leave your key in your room). Free parking was a nice amenity as were the muffins and coffee. The room was clean....

I don't remember how I discovered this place, but it had excellent reviews, cheap rates, and the perfect location for us to hit up Koreatown. This is a motel through and through. The front desk is a little window. The parking lot is tiny but perfectly adequate for the motel size (10 rooms and 10 parking spots). The room is...

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!
