First of all this stay was with a large group of family members. A total of 4 rooms were booked at this location for a visit to Universal Studios Theme Park. I knew in booking that parking was an issue. Well that is understated and really was an issue. Designated parking for this hotel does not match the number of... More

Room was very clean, nicely decorated. The breakfast pastries were excellent as was the coffee. I think it was high priced for the type of room and location and amenities, basically a refurbished motel. .

Free parking, free breakfast pastries first come first serve (not an actual breakfast, but still free and can fill you up), extremely helpful staff. At the end of our stay our rental car's sat. nav. inexplicably stopped working. We went back into the hotel to ask if we could use the phone, instead they sorted everything out over the phone...

The Tangerine isn't going to be to every ones taste but we thought it was fabulous. It was recommended to us, by a friend who lives in the next suburb. Location wise it is easy to get to in Burbank, and being in Burbank I find it easier to navigate and find parking. It is walking distance to Warner Bros... More

I absolutely LOVED this cute hotel. If you are visiting Burbank for the movie experience:(Universal/WB) this is the place to stay. It is centrally located to anything you could want to visit in the area. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and cozy and the pool is heated very nicely. Portos pastries in the lobby as a... More

This is a traditional motel set up, but it has been remodeled and the rooms and lobby have a modern and tasteful decor. The rooms are spacious and bathroom is clean and modern. They have a mini refrigerator and coffe pot in the room and small table and chairs useful if you decide to eat in the room. If you... More

Third time staying at the Tangerine, third time left feeling more than happy. There is not enough good I can say about this place. Would not stay anywhere else in the whole of LA. The location is fantastic to get around LA and I mean everywhere, (just avoid commute times obviously) it's right by the freeway but you don't hear... More

On our trip along the US west coast we searched for a cheap and good hotel in the area of Los Angeles. During this search we found the Tangerine hotel in Burbank north of the Hollywood Hills and this was really a good choice. The hotel is very small - about 20-25 rooms - with free parking lots in the... More

We booked in here for 2 nights at the start of our road trip. It was perfect, room was huge & very clean, coffee machine & another in reception with free pastries every morning, friendly staff also.
