Small hotel, great location for visiting movie studios. Lots of good restaurant choices all around. This is a 1950's era motel that has been very nicely updated and is very comfortable. It's a five minute ride from the Burbank airport, walking distance to Warner Brothers' lot, and a short drive to Universal Studios and the Harry Potter theme park.

A group of friends stayed when we attended a taping of The Ellen Show. The hotel is great and close to everything we wanted to do. Clean, friendly and the cost was great. We all loved the beverage machine in the lobby and the pool area was nice to sit and relax

We travel a lot! We have stayed in hotels and apartments all over the world. While the Tangerine is not an upscale mega-hotel ala Four Seasons, meaning it doesn't have a restaurant, bar, night club, etc., it is quite possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The refurbished Route 66-type motel has rooms that are spacious, comfortable, clean,... More

Perfection. Quiet, clean and professional. Really enjoyed our weekend. Will absolutely stay again. The location is ideal for sight seeing too. Don Cuoco next door is great too. Swimming pool was warm and never busy.

If you are looking for somewhere that is close to Warner Bros Studio and Universal, is reasonably priced and does not charge for parking then I would recommend you take a look at The Tangerine. Rooms clean, nice large comfy bed, plenty of parking and even a nice clean pool! Staff friendly and helpful. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.... More

We had a great stay at The Tangerine. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. It is central to lots of great restaurants and bars. We also really enjoyed the pool, it is clean and heated. We will definitely stay here again sometime.

I stayed at this property for my birthday and enjoyed the entire stay!! The rooms are renovated in a funky retro artsy way. It was a highlight of the trip. The orange glitter vanity was my fav part! Fresh pastries from a LOCAL bakery were amazeballs. I would recommend this to couples looking for a fun getaway and super close... More

We were looking for something a little different and affordable after dropping the daughter off at college in L.A. The Tangerine (and yes, most of the outside of the building is painted that color) fit the bill very nicely. Good sized rooms, very clean, comfortable beds, good A/C, and very quiet. Parking lot is very small, but just behind the... More

Went to Burbank for 2 nights and 3 days and used trip advisor to find the best hotel in Burbank. The tangerine came up as #1 of 20 in the Burbank area so after reading some reviews I booked a stay. I was very happy with my stay and really enjoyed the whole area. The rooms were very clean and... More
