“Will Stay Again - Cute Place & Affordable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

I stayed here for 2 nights based on other good reviews....and was pleasantly surprised. We had two adjoining rooms...clean, trendy, 3 teens travelling with us loved it. Very Hipster they said. Awesome area...very suburban and safe for families. Very close to Universal, Warner Bros, Hollywood area. Nicely priced. Pool area was small but very nice. Fenced in and you don't know you're even next to the sidewalk...piped in music. Kids liked it. Only complaint was the noisy a/c unit....but I travel with ear plugs so it didn't bother me too much. VERY comfortable beds. Will stay again for sure. Teens will like it.

Room Tip: Ask for first floor since there is no elevator.

It's a throw-back to a different time, but better. Like '50's style shell of a motel filled with lovely, modern goodies. Fun murals, unique in every room. Our room was very clean and quiet, even on the ground floor. And the choice of toiletries are better than I've found in many luxury hotels I've stayed in.
The area has a small town feel and we were very comfortable walking in the surrounding area, as it felt surprisingly safe. My oldest son loved the juice bars, seemingly on every corner. Easy drive to Universal Studios and so many studio attractions right near by.

We originally booked a room for only two nights of our week-long stay in the area since we were not sure what to expect. Our room was very clean and quiet. The area has a small town feel and we were very comfortable walking in the surrounding area. There are several restaurants and Warner Bros studio in walking distance. We decided to extend our stay at the Tangerine for the entire trip. The complimentary morning pastries from a local bakery were a treat every morning!

I know it's not a very sophisticated and large hotel but this one little thing in the middle of Burbank is cozy. The people are very friendly and do their best to help you in anything you need. And most importantly it is perfectly located. The breakfast is nothing great but my kids loved the Cuban pastries and of course the chocolate and coffee machine that is available 24 hours. I recommended it 100% and now it will be my hotel when visiting the rich and famous there.

Room Tip: Room in the second floor are better.

I love this place! Easy walk to many restaurants, which truly appeals to me. It's not ultra modern, which is part of its charm, but has all the comforts. It's a throw-back to a different time, but better.

My 4-night stay at the Tangerine Hotel was very pleasant. The room was clean and well maintained; housekeeping each day was very good. The bathroom was a bit small, but plenty of counter space, and water was hot almost instantly. The room was quiet, and I heard others only in the morning when I was getting ready to leave for the day.

Air conditioning was easy to adjust. Since I was attending a conference that provided breakfast, I did not eat the breakfast pastries, which nevertheless looked inviting. I preferred the parking in the back to the front courtyard spaces, which were fairly small and difficult to negotiate with an unfamiliar rental car, and occasionally blocked by other arriving guests or delivery vehicles. Lots of restaurants nearby within walking distance.

The card keys did not work twice and had to get new ones, but the front office is staffed 24 hours by friendy people.

Room Tip: No elevator, so ask for downstairs if stairs are a problem.

Had a wonderful stay at the Tangerine hotel in Burbank, Ca. It's just a few minutes away from Universal Studios Hollywood, which is why we stayed there. The rooms are nice and spacious. The front desk employees are amazing. Kamal does his job very well. Even the pretty blond that helped us at check in. Beside the surprise $250 security deposit (refunded when checked out and you haven't thrashed the room) on my debit card in addition to room cost it was a great stay.
