We booked this thinking it was going to be a HoteI. It really is a Motel, with outside doors, exposed portable air conditioning units, stairs and parking right next to each room. We paid an outrageous $254 for a one night stay. Breakfast was "included" which consisted of a few pastries and an espresso machine. We skipped it and went...

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel for our stay whilst we visited Universal Studios and came across The Tangerine. It had all what we wanted, parking (free), wifi (free), breakfast (free), etc and the rooms were spacious and clean. There is a safe for your valuables and a good sized TV with plenty of channels to choose from....

We loved The Tangerine! Looking for a hotel to stay at while visiting Universal Studios was tough - the ones onsite were way too expensive - so I was thrilled when I found this little gem. It's located in a fairly quiet area of Burbank and is just a 10 minute drive (in morning traffic) from Universal. The rooms have...

First of all it's not an expensive hotel by LA standards. The room we had was a double queen and the bed quite frankly was as good as I've slept in ANYWHERE, including my own ! The bathroom is small but serviceable as was the room . But staff keep everything neat as a pin . They are also very...

Parking: We got here pretty early (4pm) and had no problem finding a spot in the back alley. We were glad we read prior Trip Advisor reviews so we understood the parking situation It's IMPOSSIBLE in the front parking area where only 2-3 folks could park. Don't even try it there. Main street parking is 1 hour only until around...

We loved this hotel. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The rooms were stunning. We loved the coffee and hot chocolate and pastries in the mornings. We stayed 2 nights and didn't want to leave. I would stay here again.

We were there for the Rose Bowl and it was located in a central location to Pasadena and downtown LA. The area had plenty of nice restaurants and tourist attractions. We had no problem getting an UBER to go to different locations. The morning pastries and drinks were great.

I felt like I was staying in a 5-star hotel! They have a heated pool, complimentary hot chocolate, and if you're interested in a tour of Warner Brothers, the motel is right around the corner. The room we stayed in had a very comfortable bed, lovely decorations, the TV came in crystal clear, and the bathroom was okay. It would...

Great hotel conveniently located near just about everything, and in a great neighborhood as well. We stayed for one night on the second floor and enjoyed a restful night and a very comfortable king bed. The property and rooms are all very well maintained, the complimentary wifi, pastries and coffee were very nice touches. We'd stay again.

My kids and I spent a few days at the Tangerine and were very pleased with our stay. Very welcoming customer service and a comfy, clean room, in addition to yummy fresh pastries in the morning! Lots of great restaurants within walking distance and great shopping not too far. We loved it !
