A friend and I stayed here with 2 children in early October. Though tight for the four of us, the room was funky, clean and quiet (we were on the ground floor). The pool was small but the kids enjoyed it. Although we did not have any of the pastries at breakfast time, the hot beverages machine was great and...

What a lovely, lovely hotel. We are a family of 4 (with a 13 year old & a 9 year old) and we really enjoyed our stay. It was just perfect for us (especially after 5 days in Vegas & the 4 hour drive!) We would certainly highly recommend it. Comfortable beds, very clean and tidy. Great decor. Super little...

The Tangerine Hotel has great beds and great location and the guy at front desk has been a godsend, helping us with everything we needed to know about nearby attractions and traveling. Highly recommended

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...

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...

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...

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...
