We stayed for 3 nights and were very impressed - the room was 2 queen beds and very clean and spacious. Location was good - we caught Ubers everywhere including to Universal Studios and the Walk of Fame. The pastries for breakfast every morning were delicious - I will miss those! Reception was great - easy check in and out...

Thank you Kamar and team! Impeccable service and hospitality like no other. This is our second stay at the Tangerine and came away just as impressed as the first time. From check in to check out no detail is missed. We so appreciate the Tangerine and intend to return on our next visit to the LA area.

The Tangerine updates nostalgia very well. Surrounded by tall office blocks, the motel had the feel of an old time motel fully updated for the modern taste. The staff are attentive and knowledgable and although I think it's a little expensive for what you get (hence only 4 stars), I recommend staying here

Great hotel in a great area. There are so many places nearby to eat and the hotel was perfect for the location. Def would stay here again. There is extra parking behind for parking!:). Free wifi is an added bonus as well. Beds were comfortable!

We stayed here on the front end of our Thanksgiving week off. We were headed to Palm Springs and decided to stop off at Universal Studios for a couple of days to play. I knew nothing about The Tangerine prior to booking it and booked it through Hotwire. We were a family of 5 staying two nights. The hotel is...

We had a 2 night stay, the hotel is clean and fresh with a really cool and relaxed feel. Booked in with no problems with pastries and coffee available in the mornings. Located in a lovely safe neighbourhood with loads of restaurants and cafes close by. Although located by the road side it's a very quiet place and we had...

I did quite a bit of research before choosing the Tangerine and, after experiencing it (and the surrounding area) in person I was VERY glad I did. Right off the bat, we were both charmed by the retro look and feel and the free parking. The lobby was well-appointed (it actually SMELLS LIKE TANGERINES, YOU GUYS) and the staff was...

We loved our stay here! Pros: Location- we did Universal Studios and it was a quick drive (however on the weekdays the drive time did double due to traffic) Also several good, non chain, restaurants within walking distant. Style- I thought the room was very stylish and clean! Pool- I loved the pool, It is heated year around and it...

We stayed here from Oct. 22 for 3 nights. All of the good things written about The Tangerine are true. The hotel is well maintained. The room we had was very clean. The bed was very comfortable, the towels and soaps were replaced each day. The room was very quiet. We stayed on the top floor, the last room overlooking...
