My daughter and I spent the night here after whooping it up at Universal Studios (about 2.5 miles away). The current owners did a very good job gutting out this old motel and converting it into a well-designed, edgy, modern place to stay. It is a small property in a nice neighborhood with plenty of restaurants and cafes within walking... More

Whilst this place was clean, the room was very very small. The air conditioning unit very noisy. The pool was tiny and facing the main road and small car park. Complementary breakfast was a waste of time made up of pastries. Expensive for what it is but I guess that's LA prices. I would not return.

It doesn't look like much, surrounded by the encroaching office towers, but this little motor lodge is a nice place to stay. Rooms are a bit tight in the bed area but roomy near the bathroom. The a/c unit caused a slight problem. It worked well enough, but its location near the floor meant it was blocked by one bed.... More

I arrived much later than planned, and entered the reception area just as the staff members were changing shifts. Both folks I interacted with were wonderful, and provided me a warm and lighthearted welcome to the property. I felt comfortable and happy as I went to my room, which was on the second floor, closest to the road. I had... More

We booked the Tangerine Hotel via Expedia and saved quite a lot of money by booking our hotels within 10 days of booking our flights. The welcome we received at the motel from Kamal was brilliant! He was so friendly and helpful and we instantly felt at ease. The hotel is very clean and modern and has a heated pool... More

Our family stayed at the Tangerine Hotel for one night while visiting Universal Studios. I looked at several places in the area, and this one seemed to have the best reviews. It turned out to be the perfect choice for us. We had two queen beds for our family of four. The room was quite large, with a huge counter... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Tangerine Motel. This is a great example of a budget hotel doing things very well. The efficient staff in particular Kamal were very welcoming, the motel has a lovely reception area and serves coffee all day and pastries first thing. The room was decorated well and had a wonderful bed in. The sheets... More

Every year, we stay in Burbank since our family live 5 minutes from this location, but this was the first time at Tangerine. This is a motel which has been updated to a modern facility. Our room was clean and the bath towels were thick. There was ample counter space and a wardrobe with shelves and hanging space. A chest... More

This great little hotel is centrally located if you're planning a trip to Universal Studios or the Warner Brothers studio lot. The staff was incredibly friendly and very attentive with information about the area or hotel amenities. The room was very clean, very nicely updated, comfortable beds and even had an alarm clock with both the old AND new iPhone... More
