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...

A friend and I stayed here with 2 children in early October. Though tight for the four of us, the room was funky, clean and quiet (we were on the ground floor). The pool was small but the kids enjoyed it. Although we did not have any of the pastries at breakfast time, the hot beverages machine was great and...

What a lovely, lovely hotel. We are a family of 4 (with a 13 year old & a 9 year old) and we really enjoyed our stay. It was just perfect for us (especially after 5 days in Vegas & the 4 hour drive!) We would certainly highly recommend it. Comfortable beds, very clean and tidy. Great decor. Super little...
