Very friendly and helpful staff at check in. Even got asked what room I preferred. Room was large, clean and well decorated. Plenty of storage. Had a problem with the TV and as soon as I mentioned it to reception it was fixed within minutes. The pool area is really nice (and clean). Reception provide free towels to use at...

This nicely remodeled motel is clean, conveniently located, and provides free parking and reliable, free wifi. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. I enjoyed breakfast at Bea Beas and a wonderful dinner across the street at Novo Cafe I wasn't a fan of the concrete floor or the relatively high price...

This is a pleasant motel style hotel that is in a good location. The rooms are ok and the amenities lovely. I have given it an average rating as there is no really no breakfast and there is no breakfast room. They provide fresh pastries which is nice but there are no healthy food options and in fact no other...

This hotel was perfect for being slightly out of the way of the hustle and bustle and traffic of LA. It was very close to the Warner Bros studio tours and a lot cheaper than many other LA hotels. We ate in a couple of the many restaurants along the main road within walking distance to the hotel. Hotel areas...

This place is very highly recommended. Staff is exceptionally service-minded, rooms are very clean, well-appointed, and thoughtfully but simply decorated. Beds and pillows are comfortable. The price is right on for very good quality. Parking is free. Location is excellent ~ great dining within easy walking distance both commercial and unique. Hollywood and Burbank sights are easy, cheap Übers away....

The hotel is a refurbished motel. The refurbishment was simple and tasteful. But what really makes the difference is Kamal and his staff who are extremely helpful and welcoming. Rooms were tidy and clean and the a/c was efficient if a little noisy. The included breakfast of coffee and pastries makes a welcome change to the standard Buffett breakfast. Will...

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,...
