Best Tanning In LA- from an expert – I've been tanning for the past four years, and growing up in Los Angeles has offered me a plethora of tanning salons all over the city. I've tried Le Beach Club, Darque Tan, Total Tan and Sunset Tan and had adequate to terrible experiences at all of them. When finally a friend recommended The Tanning Club. I loved it from the first second I walked in the door. A warm welcome that made me feel comfortable and as if they thoroughly cared about my experience. In comparison to the other salons, I thought the prices here were unbeatable and the employees worked to accommodate exactly what I wanted. There are always specials and I personally believe the friendly staff that remembers my name every time and actually enjoys carrying a conversation with me is worth the visit to begin with. Let alone my flawless tan. I have convinced almost all my friends into switching to tanning at the Tanning Club and in contrast to all the negative reviews, I can promise you a great experience with the friendly staff, state of the art beds, and clean n' sleek environment. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable! Try it!!!
Don't let the mixed reviews fool you...this place is amazing. – I stumbled upon The Tanning Club while shopping in Westwood Village and was amazed at what I had found!
Expecting outrageous prices, I was shocked when I was informed that their rates were not only affordable but cheap! At first I thought there was no way I could pay so little for a decent tanning experience, however, I learned all of their beds are 12 minutes so you don't have to deal with those ridiculous 20 minute beds! The salon was beautifully decorated and I felt welcome and very well taken care of by the courteous staff. I was not pressured to buy anything I did not feel comfortable with purchasing and I was treated like a prestigious client.
Above and beyond providing internet and a fully stocked powder room, they have convenient parking in the rear of the salon, which is a godsend in Westwood! I was so impressed that I decided to encourage others to go check out this salon and I was shocked when I saw that others had posted such awful reviews about The Tanning Club. I hope these reviews don't discourage anyone from discovering what a treasure The Tanning Club truly is, and I am very thankful I found such a wonderful salon.
SAVE YOURSELF THE SALES PITCH! – I am not new to LA and I understand the need to keep the flow of money coming into a business, but why the hell do you have to tie a person down and try all the typical sales pitches. I've heard it before. So you have internet, so does my black berry! Your over priced for the beds you get. If you go to this place avoid the tan dark haired guy, what an idiot. Seems like he has a small, ya know problem ;) Seems arrogant and rude. The place smells good though, but I think I'll stick to Sunset Tan, high prices and all :)
An everyday review, for everyday people – I have lived in LA for about a year now, and I have gone to various tanning salons such as Le Beach Club, Sunset Tan and some others. Although these salons were comparable to The Tanning Club, their prices were outrageous! When I discovered The Tanning Club in Westwood Village I was amazed by how courteous and helpful the staff was right off the bat! They immediately gave me a tour of the salon and informed me that they offered free internet access, a powder room to wash your face, free parking in back of the salon and top of the line tanning equipment. I thought their prices would be extremely expensive, like all of the other salons in LA, however, I was shocked when I received ten sessions in top of the line 12 minute beds or an option of standing for $79 dollars. I got the same type of bed at the other salons for $350 for 10 sessions! I just moved to Santa Monica, so the drive to get there is quite far, but due to the amazing prices, modern style and convenient parking I do not mind the distance at all! The salon is always clean and honestly the people working their always provide terrific service! I always leave the salon feeling refreshed, darker and ready for the day! I highly recommend The Tanning Club to anyone searching for the perfect tanning salon in LA!
Average tanning salon, no major complaints – People seem to have major problems with this place, but I have gone twice so far and it was adequate. The facilities are nice and modern, and it is not usually crowded, so the employees have time to answer questions and give proper instructions. My tan lasted over a week with almost no streaking. The downsides: parking is impossible in Westwood, this place is definitely overpriced (although buying packages will save money in the long run), and while some staff members have been extremely friendly and helpful, others have been rude and competely useless. Tanning Club is totally fine if you live in the area and don't have time to make a longer drive: everyone else could probably find better services and bargains elsewhere.
Are You Kidding me? Bottom line.......This place STINKS – If it looks like a SKUNK .....Smells like a SKUNK......then it usually is a SKUNK!
Let me make this plain and simple......................Don't waste your time.......This Place STINKS!
Awefull parking situation(Hello, Westwood Village!) (Back of store parking spot........maybe if I had a Vespa!)
Staff= Rude, insulting with their "typical" sales pitch.
Mystic tan solution streaks.....tanning beds.....weak bulbs.....Do they change them?
is this place for real? – ok, so I bought a "small package" about 9 months ago that cost me roughly $150. I did not tan for a while as my doctor found spots on my body. So I stopped tanning for a few months and when I returned I was informed by the staff that my sessions expired and was pitched another package. I raised a stink and my sessions were reinstated. well after spending 15-20 minutes searching for a parking space there is nothing but attitude when I tan. I feel so uncomfortable there that my boyfriend usually escorts me until my package is up. anyway do not fall for any of this, as there are better tanning saloons out there with much better equipment and service.
good salon! – Despite the last two comments i went in to check out this place because I haven't really liked the other salons in west LA. The guy was really nice to me and didn't pressure me to buy anything I didn't want to. I really liked the bed I went into and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Honestly the biggest difference for me was that they had 12 minute beds with facial tanners much cheaper than other salons in West LA. Parking in the back was not a problem. definitely a great place to tan.
horrible service. dirty beds – ok so i went to this place a few weeks back and wow i could not beleive the sales pitch right off the bat. but before that lets talk about parking. IT DOES NOT EXIST IN WESTWOOD. so all i wanted to do was buy a small package. next thing i know this rude guy keeps on pushing large bottles of lotion for sale and for some reason does not take no for an answer. so i left my coupon at home, and he was givng me a tough time making me feel like hes doing me a favor for honoring the "special" that for some reason seems to be running every month. but heres ther kicker, i got undressed, applied my large bottle of lotion that i felt pressured to buy and began tanning. and then through my dirty goggles i saw lotion streatks throughout the upper lamps. it was gross and to be honest made me feel like i had to run home and shower. i will never go back. big mistake!
Average tan, staff is full of sh#!; deceptive sales techniques. – Same equipment as anywhere else in LA to tan........big whoop.......Staff tries to sell you on everything.....be prepared to get the typical sales speech...."You have only one session left, are you going to continue?".......It felt like my time was always cut shorter than the intended. Good luck trying to find parking in Westwood......what a nightmare......"Free Parking in the rear?!"...No thanks, I don't want dings in my car from the 2 tiny parking spots. Bottom line....TOO much of a hassle to get over to Westwood from the other side of the 405......especially during rush hour(which in LA is all the time)!
