“Sleepless in LA”
Reviewed 12 June 2011

Yes this motel is in a convenient location. Also the owners are very friendly and helpful if you have any questions about the area. The rooms are clean. However, if you intend to sleep much at all, you should bring ear plugs as the noise from the next room as well as the street noise will keep you awake all night. I could hear the person snoring in the room next to mine. Overall, if you are on a budget it is probably fine for one or two nights. If you can afford more, spend it on a different hotel and skip one meal out to make up the difference.

Jerry's motel was a cheap hotel in a decent location in LA - it's within 30min to most locations. It's pretty good for a short stay and the rooms are quite clean - whilst some reviews have something to say about the "dodgy" neighborhood - I didn't have any qualms about my stay there.

The shower is spacey and the walk-in wardrobe was handy for our suitcases. We were also allowed to check in really early (9am) which was great after a long flight.

Some cons include the fact that the bed was quite lumpy and the curb to the hotel was quite high - so just be wary if you're driving a car with a low profile.

There is also wireless available - it's not the fastest but it's useful for checking emails and such

The room was clean, free parking, convenient location and a great price... in LA!!! Another thing, the TV had more stations than I can remember having in any other hotel. Don't let the outside of the building fool you (it looks bad from the outside) it's a nice place to stay for a good rate.

We arrived at LA at the end of our west cost road trip, had picked Jerry's because of the reviews on tripadvisor and if was all true. Jerry was very friendly and provide us a great service. The room was very clean and location was good if you are doing tourism. We were really happy with our choice!

We spent 7 nights at this motel and found it to be very clean and comfortable. Mr. & Mrs. Jerry are very nice and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We arrived late afternoon and upon check in, Mr. Jerry gave us each a bottle of water. The following morning we were greeted by Mrs. Jerry as we were leaving for our day's outing. She introduced herself and told us to let her now if we needed anything special. The room is much the way they show it on their website. Jerry's Motel is conveniently located by the freeway and most of the attractions. We would not hesitate to stay here if we are ever in Los Angeles again. By the way, there are NO bedbugs at this motel. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable motel at a very reasonable rate with free parking, this is the place.

I arrived at LAX late at night and had never been in LA before so I was a little nervous about driving in the city, but I had no problem finding the motel. It's easy to find, right of the Harbor Freeway. When we arrived near midnight the owner's wife gave me a warm welcome, along with some bottled water and snacks. Unfortunately, we were given a room with one bed, but we needed two. Jerry quicky made a second room available for us (so we each had our own room) and only asked for a voluntary donation for the second room. The owners were also very helpful in recommending restaraunts and giving directions. The neighborhood was very working-class, but safe and quiet. The rates were very affordable and the central location made it easy to explore all parts of the city.

Very friendly and warm family who are ready to make you feel home. Highly recommended to everyone.
Many thanks to Jerry and Nila for their hospitality.
