“Great Little Place”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

We were looking for a hotel near Joe's Great American Bar and Grill for Rockabilly night (Wednesdays) - they have live Roots music most nights. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. It is obviously an old style motel that has been nicely refurbished. Decor was nice. Staff were all helpful and pleasant. A good experience and in a good, safe area.

We have recently returned from the USA on a family holiday and stayed at the Tangerine Hotel for part of our stay. We don't have anything bad to say about this hotel, rooms were very clean, pool was fantastic and the location was great for us as we were going to Universal Studios and Warner Brothers Studios.

There are quite a few nice cafes and restaurants within walking distance and we would definitely recommend this hotel to stay in.

What a fab hotel! My husband and I embarked on our honeymoon on the 11th March this year and arrived in LA on the 13th. We chose to stay in Burbank so we could be near Universal Studios rather than being in Downtown LA. This location was perfect!!
To start with they were happy to point out where we could grab some food. Then in the morning they provided complimentary pastries for breakfast. A great way to start the day! We were literally 10 minutes from Universal Studios and as we hadn't got round to hiring a car, we caught the bus with the help and guidance of the staff at the hotel. The bus took us directly to the Studios and was a short taxi ride home at the end of the day.
That night we needed to arrange a hire car and the hotel staff were really helpful and provided use of their laptop and were happy to call hire companies on our behalf. We managed to get a great deal with Fox thanks to the Tangerine.

Our room was very clean and had Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries. Lovely. We even had a night swim in the heated pool, although it was chilly outside, the pool was delightful.
The bed was really comfy and we had no problems sleeping even though the hotel was on a main road. We were above the Mexican restaurant and we didn't hear anything.
The hotel had plenty of parking as it was more of a motel than a normal hotel but we felt very safe and it's in a nice location. We even walked up the road to Bob's Big Boy Diner one evening, without feeling concerned about the area. Absolutely fine.
We would definitely stay there again but a note would be to get the car before you arrive in LA as it's the easiest way to get around.
The Tangerine Hotel made our LA stay perfect!

We don't ask much of hotels when we're on vacation. We usually have activities planned throughout the day and just need a nice, safe, clean place to stay that won't charge us an arm and a leg. This place met those critieria and more. The location was great; close to everything in a nice area with many dining/attraction options. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Not as funky as I thought they'd be judging by their online pics, but still nice. Management was helpful; we asked for some extra pillows and shampoo and got them right away. Pastries were delicious, and just what we needed to start our days' activities. I liked that this was an independently-owned place and would definitely stay here again if I were visiting the area.

Excellent experience. Everyone was very nice, room was clean and comfortable. Loved the pastries and drink selections in the lobby. Perfect location for travel to Warner Bros and NBC Studios. Lots of nice restaurants close by.
