Only spent one night in this hotel. Very clean, staff is incredible- they are very very professional and people friendly...I asked for things to do in the surrounding area and the lady in the front desk spent more than 20 minutes with me making sure I got what I wanted!
Rooms are big, decoration is nice, location is good (close to Warner Bros Studios) and the internet works well! Great value for the $$$ as well! Everybody enjoyed their time there (Dad, mum and kid)

Stayed here for 3 nights with my two children in a second floor room

Pros
- great location for visiting Universal Studios, Hollywood, Pasadena, Warner Bros Studios (easy walk there)
- relaxing and safe area to stay in, with both easy driving around the area and easy access to the freeway
- standard motel style room but with cute decor and a nice big bench outside the bathroom so could set everything out nicely
- free coffee and breakfast pastries in lobby, coffee was really nice
- very nice quality shampoo, conditioner and soaps - Crabtree and Eveylyn Aloe Vera
- heated pool which provided a pleasant swim even in January (and a cold January!)
- parking always available, and easily accessible (most of the spots are behind the motel in an alley rather than in the front so do believe your GPS when it tells you to go there... :D)
- lady that worked at night was very helpful and friendly, even offered to help us with suitcases up stairs
- reasonable range of places to eat nearby

Cons
- make sure you request a ground floor room if a lot of luggage as there is no elevator (we had 5 suitcases so took some effort)

Would definitely stay here again

After finding that nearly every hotel available in this area requires a daily valet fee, I unexpectedly happened upon the Tangerine in a Trip Advisor review on the sidebar. Cute little place, all reviews were positive, so I decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed one bit. This little hotel is spotlessly clean. Every area is nicely kept and so clean. The staff was courteous and helpful; the pastries in the morning were tasty and fresh. Hot drinks are available in the lobby 24/7. The pool area was also sparkly clean. The beds were comfortable, the toiletries were great quality. Free wi-fi. The rooms were decorated nicely. And no valet parking! It was walking distance to the Warner Bros. studios; and the Mexican restaurant next door was delicious. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again anytime.

We were looking for a reasonable price hotel in LA and it seemed to be a tough task. But when we found Tangerine we noticed the location was great and the price was one of the best on the list. We walked to Warner Brothers and took us 5-10 min by car to Universal Park. It was a very pleasant stay, the room was very clean and the staff was very helpful with our questions.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Tangerine Hotel for 3 days in December. The room was clean and the price reasonable. The staff was helpful and even printed me a map to Universal Studios and to Von's. The towels were excellent and soaps and lotions of nice quality. Also, it was nice to have a coffee maker in the room. The location is perfect, as the Hotel was close to all the sites we wanted to see. We liked Big boy restaurant, the burgers for lunch and the spaghetti with chili for supper. We would recommend the Tangerine Hotel to everyone.

You, as well may be skeptical of this hotel by looking at the pics. However, we needed to be on a budget on this trip as it was somewhat last minute do to getting tickets to an Ellen show taping. I know it looks like one of those "numbered hotels" from the outside which we would prefer not to be staying at. Don't worry this place was truly great!! Now it's not the Ritz but let's be honest $129 p.night. I would come back here no questions asked. You can walk to all Warner Bros. gates, WB VIP tours, many restaurants, etc. Easy access if driving to get on CA 134. The staff at the Tangerine was great too. Free baked goods each morning from Porto's Bakery & hot beverages from 7 - 11am.
