The space, infrastructure etc is exactly what is promised - simple, clean and no frills. The location is nice too, just off downtown and well connected through busses.
The owner, also the caretaker was a fantastic person, hospitable and helpful. He even drove us voluntarily to the downtown transport hub!

I stumbled on this place looking for a place to stay for a business trip in Los Angeles, and I'm glad I did. The location is great if you need to make your way to downtown and pretty much a short drive to everything else. So it's a great home base to plan seeing more of LA if you want to cover the most ground possible. This works great for me since I travel a lot for business and try to squeeze in as much pleasure/site seeing as humanly possible.

This is an older place, so don't expect the 4 season type amenities here. Nonetheless, the service is really friendly.

Overall, a great place to stay if you're on a budget and really just need a place to sleep. I'll be back here the next time I'm down in LA.

Jerry's Motel is a great value. The rooms are not large but they are clean and comfortable with all the basics including a nice flat screen TV. We were in Los Angeles visiting our daughter and son in law. Jerry's was convenient to where they live which is why we chose Jerry's. Jerry is very friendly and helpful. When we go back for another visit we will stay there again.

This motel is very small and certainly not as expnsive as others nearby. The location was convenient for us and it's relatively quiet and clean, but the decor is dark and dreary. Feels dated.The bed would have been comfortable if the sheets and matrass pad had fit the bed properly. Jerry, the owner was very nice and frindly. It's a no frills place and you get what you pay for.

Made a reservation after reading the reviews here. The place is easy to find, free to park, not new but well maintained. The owners are the main reason to stay here: super friendly, caring, offering to help. You won't get anything like that in the cheap chain hotels nearby.

There are no restaurants adjacent, but it's a two minute taxi ride (5-6 bucks) to downtown and there you have plenty. Same price/distance to Walt Disney Concert Hall, which is what I had planned for that evening - cheaper than parking at the WDCH!

I got a small package of various snacks when checking in, in lieu of a breakfast. The price is right, too. Will definitely be coming back if I'm in LA for another concert.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are farther from the street, therefore quieter.

Checked in late at night for a one night stay. Owner was super helpful even helping us figure out how long it would take to get there. Small hotel, maybe 10-11 rooms. Free parking, free wifi, good location, clean rooms, fresh flowers, huge tv, DVD player, take out menus...it's an older property so don't expect a super fancy room but they make up for it with these small touches and the super clean rooms. Would definitely stay here if in town again. Also, they have the same flat room rate year round- you have to love that they don't try to profit off holiday weekends of big events. They definitely know how to run a good business and encourage repeat customers. Loved our stay here!
