Fabulous place to stay in Burbank. We stopped here while visiting Universal Studios. The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean. We got a warm welcome from Kamal who explained where everything was on site, but also gave us a top tip on how to find the Hollywood sign for the best photo opportunities. Thank for this as we wouldn't have found it ourselves. Highly recommend this lovely independent hotel.

Glad I saw a review about TheTangerine. The location for Burbank was ideal and the many restaurants made walking instead of driving a huge bonus. We had two studio tours planned and walked to both, the Disney studio and also the Warner Brothers Deluxe tour. The rooms are motel style and very clean. we would stay there again if travels took us to that area.

The Tangerine staff were all excellent. They were informative friendly and willing to help every day and night. Kamal checked myself and my daughter in, he greeted me daily and chatted until my friends arrived to collect me. The Tangerine was very clean and in a very safe location which to me was essential as I went out to eat from there alone one day and didn’t feel anxious at all. It is very convenient for the Warner Bros lot and has great restaurants and stores within walking distance. I would definitely revisit. Thank you

So trip advisor have never steered me wrong until this stay. The trip advisor site offered a reasonable price for a weekend we needed in Burbank. I always check the hotel direct and found a what I thought was 2 queens for a few dollars less than trip advisors price for 2 queens. When I arrived, I was told that I had booked their 1 room with a single queen. I was traveling with a friend and really wanted 2 beds. None of the 3 emails that I had received from the Tangerine indicated what type of room I booked so I couldn't confirm if the issue was my mistake or the hotels. (I never would have purposefully booked a single queen, but the front desk assured me it was my mistake). They then quoted me almost double rate to get the room I thought I had booked (and was now FAR above what I could have booked any other hotel in the area). She did discount the rate a bit but it was outrageous once I saw the room. This is basically a motel 6 type motel that has some hipster wallpaper, some orange accents and Porto's pastries set out in the am (we had an early start so we were unable to partake). It was loud (unavoidable as the rooms all opened to the outside walkways) and a little gross if you looked at anything too closely (the walls in the bathroom). The beds were the only exception - super comfortable - however, my friend said her's had a huge divot in the mattress. Needless to say, we don't recommend.

we stayed over night renting in LA from Las Vegas renting two rooms and after looking around at all the name brand hotels in the area my wife found this motel.
I have never stayed in a motel before and i was thrilled as it was better than any name brand i saw.
Location is amazing, its clean , very modern and offer parking which seemed to be a big issue in the NoHo area hotels.
The staff were great and friendly and the pool looked very inviting but with 24hrs in LA i didnt have the time to use it.
simply five stars is not enough for this awesome place and i can not say enough great things about this motel and staff.
Stay here and see for yourself!!!!!

Looking for a place to stay somewhat near Universal Studios we found The Tangerine and we were glad we did. It had great Trip Advisor reviews and lived up to the billing. It is an old motel that has been completely updated with a cool hip vibe. Very friendly staff. The pool temp was kept in the mid-80s which allowed for a comfortable swim anytime. The bathtub was as deep as any tub I've seen in a motel. Made for a great soak. An assortment of coffee options was available in the lobby 24 hours a day. Very close to a lot of attractions. Universal Studios was only a couple of miles away, while Warner Bros was a couple of blocks away. Griffith Park was also only about two miles away. When I checked Trip Advisor for restaurants nearly, there were literally about 50 options within less than half a mile. Two big grocery stores were also within easy walking distance. For dinner one night we ate at the Novo Cafe which was right across the street. Would definitely recommend that place. We were here for three nights, and if we ever stay in this area again, I would definitely stay here again. The only thing I was disappointed in was, because of COVID protocols, they weren't doing the wonderful morning pastries that several reviews raved about.

A clean and tidy premises, well maintained, and simple (in a good way). Has just what you need, and everything works. The AC unit is a simple thru-wall unit with straightforward analog manual controls, made by Amana (a high reliability brand). There is unique coloring and artwork all around you, with a kind of clever-ironic Route 66 kitschy vibe, just enough to be fun, but it is not overbearing or intrusive. I LIKE this place.

A good option in a safe neighbourhood with many restaurants within walking distance. Room cleaned each day and plenty of free parking. Staff helpful and when the shower in our room became faulty they quickly offered us a room swap. Children stay free of charge when using existing bed's. Excellent tea/coffee machine in lobby.
The only niggle was that the chlorine in the pool was on the high side and made our skin sore.

This is an old drive-in hotel that has been complete remodeled and refurbished. The king room was large and the housekeeping service is excellent. The Tangerine is within walking distance of Warner Brothers Studio and many restaurants are located nearby in walking distance, also. The front desk manager made sure things were perfect everyday.

Protip: If you want some dinner, walk to the next block on Riverside Dr. You will find several types of nice restaurants. If you just want to grab something quick, it has a place to get fish & chips, and a chicken place. 

The Tangerine is a solid choice for an affordable Motel in Burbank. It is close to Universal Studios, NBC studios and Bob's Big Boy. The rooms are colorful and come with a flat screen TV and a mini fridge. It has a heated pool and free parking. They provide complimentary coffee and pastries for breakfast each morning.

No microwave but I believe there was one in the lobby. Street isn’t too busy. No noise. No shuttle. The neighborhood is pretty cool though, right next to Warner Bros studios.

Yes, there is a VONS supermarket with in 10 minutes walking from the property. They have a good selection of beer and wine. Take care, Walter
