Cheap, no frills (clean) tanning. Stand up booths (which is all I want anyway). Really nice staff. Convenient hours (open until late).

The staff at this clean, classy tanning salon are helpful and friendly. The rooms and beds are gorgeous and clean. The whole experience is pleasant- from the towels to the mint on the tanning bed. Highly recommended.

Salon staff is awesome! They helped me get ready for my wedding. I couldn't help but get a membership since all of them are at good prices. I never burned and all of them are personable. All of the lotions there are extremely reasonable! I found my tanning salon..

So far the best tanning salon I have been too. I am a frequent san diego visitor and every time i come down I must visit this place. Platinum Tan has a unique formula that works perfect with my fair skin and gives me the healthy glow tan that I had always look for. The salon is super cute and service is great.

I love this place! Seriously, I would not even think of tanning anywhere else. Everyone that walks through the door is greeted with a friendly face and great personality. I love the staff there, very helpful, they are always able to make suggestions on lotions and beds. The store is very clean, welcoming, and has a lot of options for people who just want to get a tan before going to the beach or anyone tanning year round. I've been a client for over a year and never have had a bad experience.

My goal for last summer was to get a decent tan before hitting the beaches and clubs but with my work schedule and other misc stuff it just didn't look like it was going to be happening for me. I had heard mixed reviews about artificial tanning methods and I wasn't big on the idea of the tanning bed option and I wasn't even sure I could fit it in my schedule. A friend of mine told me I should think about getting an airbrush tan and that there was a great place located in San Diego called Platinum Tan and Spa that could do the job. I called them up and setup an appointment. The staff and airbrush tan specialist were very cool and they took great care of me. The result was a perfect shade of brown...just what I was looking for and the stuff they use for the process is organic which is a huge plus. Another great feature is that they have some really impressive deals for 1st timers. I think I'm going to look into their mystic tan service next time around. Go check them out at http://platinumtanusa.com/

I have been coming to platinum for waxing and facials for years. They do a great job. I started coming here regularly about 7 months ago. Patty is the best and I highly recommend her!!!! She has helped to transform my skin by recommending products that are suitable for my skin and for the different seasons. It has made a world of difference. I am constantly asked by friends and family what I have been doing for my skin!!

I fake and bake every now and then and Platinum is my place. I've been coming here for years and the gals know my name and always have my tanning lotion ready to go. I've been using the beach bed and it seems to be the trick for a good deep natural looking tan. I'll stay loyal to this tanning salon as long as I live.

Platinum Tan & spa is a beautiful salon in the downtown horton area. The interior is clean and stylish and the beds are new and clean. I also LOVE the airbrush service! The results are way better than I thought. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, and NOT pushy! Everyone who works at the salon are great, and the girls are super nice! The main reason I choose Platinum Tan is because of the relaxed enviornment and their service. This is very important to me, and the reason I left my old tanning place was because of the high pressure sales.

Overall a GREAT salon!

Had the most enjoyable experience ever with my spray tan. I needed to get color for a wedding and they helped me out. Christina was amazing-perfect color. I looked like I just came back from Maui. No smell and natural looks. I also was able to bet my eyebrows waxed. Thank you Platinum Tan & Spa.

This is such a treat to have across the street from my job! Easy access! But I was on the way to lunch and referred by my boss, how could I not give it a shot?
Everything is automated, they have a great referral system to earn free tans, and the beds are state of the art. Not to mention they have all sorts of booths, and give you tanning lotion each time you go. I forgot to mention their decorations inside and out, it's fabulous.
Compared to anywhere else, its probably actually cheap here!

I went back for an airbrush tan, and loved it! Emily is very professional and friendly. It's always kinda weird to stand almost naked in front of somebody, but she is great at making you feel at ease, instructing you exactly what to do, and educating you on how to make your tan last. They customize the color of the airbrush tan so you don't have to worry about looking unnatural. My tan looked great, like I had spent the weekend at the beach. Not one streak, and not one hint of orange. Great!

This week was depressing!!! It kept on raining here in SD. In search of a little vitamin D, i found Platinum Tan & Spa, and now i'm hooked! This spacious salon is clean and comfortable,the music is good and the staff are really friendly,also, very careful about checking out your skin type-making sure it's a "safe" tan... All in all, a great experience! Check them out, you won't be sorry!

Platinum Tan is my favorite out of all the tanning salons that I have been to in my life. The owner actually cares about his clientele and is most often onsite to oversee the business and to make sure that his clients get the best treatment, the most accurate information regarding indoor tanning. Amazing spray tan! The brownest and most natural color. Very friendly and professional atmosphere. They go over your body multiple times so the tan is very deep and even. Cost is less than what I normally pay for a spray tan plus there's a buy one get one coupon on the website for your first visit, very nice.

I would recommend this salon to everyone.

I'm definitely not a full-time tanner, but I really had a great experience when I went to Platinum Tan. Because I don't go tanning that often, I know sometimes I can feel intimidated when I actually do go because the people working there don't really help you out, or show you the machines and how to use them. This was not the case here. The girls there were extremely helpful and showed me how the bed worked before I starting using it. Everything there was really clean, and it didn't have that "tanning booth" smell either.

Best tanning salon ever.

The girls here are always wicked nice and more than willing to help you or answer any of your questions. They are attentive to the fact that if you are pale skinned (like myself), they suggest you do a specific time, rather than me going the full time and burning the hell out of myself.

I haven't tried the spray tans or the airbrush tans, but I've heard both are great. Their hours are extremely convenient as well. Definitely go here for all your tanning needs. Best place in San Diego!

Platinum Tan & Spa is hands-down the best tanning salon in San Diego. I am a religious tanner and have visited every tanning salon and personal tanning services there is in the area. The salon is very clean and always have the top of the line equipment and products. The employees are very outgoing, friendly people that are highly educate in this industry. The mystic tan is my favorite and its super quick and long lasting! When calculating overall value...a membership is the way to go. Don't believe me about this place? Go on in and see for yourself.

Being a white dude, it's hard sometimes... especially when you're super white like me. That's why I come here to Platinum Tan & Spa. I have always pass by this place but last week was the first time I came in to get a tan. The place itself looks fantastic inside and out. I got a package deal which was the best I can find in San Diego. The girls who work there are nice and cute. What more can I ask for in a tanning salon...

One of the best tanning salons I have been too. Very clean and reasonable prices. And plus they have student prices, super sweet. Lets just say if I dont come here I would be like white bread :) Another thing is the girls are always sweet. They also pay close attention to my name. So every time I walk in they always greet me by my name. Emily is very sweet. She also recommends great products.

This place is worth the drive from anywhere in the city. It is the cleanest tanning salon I have ever seen. The employees are always friendly even 20min before close on a Friday night. The prices are great, I have the unlimited membership but all the memberships are awesome. Once you come here you don't wanna leave.

I gotta be honest, I have never gone in a salon to get tanned before. This was my first time getting tan inside a salon. I thought it would be so awkward, I did not want to go at first but my girlfriend found some really great coupons online and she dragged me with her. I was kind of nervous when i got there but the staff were so nice and they treated you like family. Their service was great, it didn't even cost a lot. I came out of the salon feeling amazing. I had the best experience and for sure I am gonna go there again! Especially when I found out that they have promotions going on all the time.

I've been meaning to write Platinum Tan a review for awhile. Typically, tanning salons snag customers into overpriced multi-visit packages with excellent first-impression customer service. They hook the customer with familiarity, and service quality diminishes as the business takes the customer for granted. I've been frequenting Platinum Tan since March/April 2008, and surprisingly, every visit has been exceptional in every way.

Like always, Platinum's beds are spotless. I've been traumatized by friends who perform unmentionables in tanning beds to pass time, and even with this knowledge, I have no problem hopping bare-assed into their High-end beds. Their beds are top notch, hours and location ,free parking, and the candy they place with eye protection and towels always brings a smile to my face. I've never witnessed Platinum without a new customer or returning customer special, so there's always an affordable tanning option for everyone.

Last, but not least, what really makes Platinum Tan stand out is its customer service. The employees are such sweethearts. He's probably seen me at my worst more often than my partner, and makes checking in and tanning a comfortable and pleasant event. I ended my recent package today, and just like before, I left without any pressure to purchase a new one (although it's kind of a given I'll come back).

I've been recommending Platinum to my friends, and I definitely recommend it to those seeking a pleasurable Vitamin D boosting tanning experience.

I LOVE this tanning salon. I have have been tanning for about 10 years, not bragging just saying.I have had my share of horrible tanning salons and wasted money trying to get a tan. Recently my old salon raised their rates so I decided to find one closer to home. I have been searching for a new place for about two months. Everywhere I went the prices were so high for crappy old beds.I do not mind paying high dollar for a good tan as long as I see results and the bed has little UVB rays. Today I went to Platinum Tan today and I was pleasantly surprised. But it was a beautiful salon with state of the art technology.The guy who helped me was awesome. He had all the info about the different beds and helped me find a package that works for my budget and my needs.I went in the level 5 bed today, which is 100% UVA rays. So you dont burn and do not have to tan everyday. I got out about an hour ago and I already see color. The best part of the tan was the mist! It reminded me of being at the topless pools in Vegas. Whenever you get too hot just have a little mist to cool you off!I recommend this place to anyone, there are so many of them its easy to find one near you. There are packages as low as $30 a month. So there is no need to be wasting your time and money at other salons. Oh and Platinum Tan offers air brush tanning, So if you have a package at PlatinumTan you do not need to find a different place for an airbrush. One stop shop!

I LOVE to tan...and I have been to many places in SD to do it. Platinum Tan is a high quality tanning salon. They not only offer tanning beds, but they have my favorite type of tan...the Mystic Tan. It is always clean, the employees are nice, and they have a special every day of the year!!! My favorite salon in SD by far!

Platinum Tan is by far your best choice for tanning in San Diego. Compared to other salons I have been to, Platinum Tan offers the best selection of tanning lotion and product along with five levels of tanning beds to chose from. I was also impressed with the other services the salon offers-facials, waxing, and airbrush tanning. It is so nice to be able to get all my skin care needs taken care of in one first-class facility.

I needed a perfect beach tan for the summertime so I went to platinum tan. Platinum tan was not the cheapest place around but it is definitely comparable to other tanning salons. The staff was extremely friendly and gave me a good introduction to the health risks involved with artifical UV tanning. They made me feel welcome and my tan turned out quite well.

I have been a customer of platinumt tan for a months now, having discovered them one day when I was on my way out from the mall. They were terrific when I was in the worst possible mood. Over the monthsI have been impressed by the steady upgrading of equipment, and their cutting edge spray tanning services. They have Mystic Tanning with a number of different settings and their airbrush tanning is absolutely terrific. These folks are efficient, on time, and very creative in their packages, and service quality, particularly to and for regulars. In a service business that can be sketcthy, these guys are the best. Good equipment, good attitude, good value and prices, clean facility, and nice people. . . . and above all, perfect

Decor of this place is beautiful, it's very clean, staff is very personable and friendly! The tanning beds are nice, they gave me a perfectly even tan. The salon provides you with complimentary lotion products... The service was impeccable, the machines are amazing. A total recommend.

I tried this place on the recommendation of a friend because I needed a tan fast before a part event.. I was veryy happy with the result. The salon is beautifully finished. The place is spotless, which is really important to clean freaks like me. I tried the airbrush tan, and loved the result, because it looked completely natural. Anyway, check this place out, it's a great find.'

This place is still spankin' new looking and so clean!! FINALLY!

For my first experience, I walked in a rush and had to fill out paper work, choose a type of bed, choose a bronzer lotion example thingy, and wanted to tan for 9 minutes. The girl behind the counter never pressured me to buy a life-time package or upgrade myself to another bed in any way and guaranteed to get me out in 12 minutes. Se was right! I made it back into the the theatre district (where I work) with minutes to spare.

It's a great location.The atmosphere feels realxing and they have cooled-dampened towels for when you are finished with your session.

I went back for the second time and they knew my name, knew what bronzer I tested and didn't pressure me to purchase the most expensive lotion. I feel like they are honest here and want their costumers to trust them which I look for in any type of salon situation. On top of that, they keep your lotion for you labeled at the salon for your convenience! That totally won me over since I ALWAYS forget my lotion.

Going back. It's my tanning spot now.

Platinum Tan is my favorite out of all the tanning salons that I have been to in my life. The owner actually cares about his clientele and is most often onsite to oversee the business and to make sure that his clients get the best treatment, the most accurate information regarding indoor tanning. Amazing spray tan! The brownest and most natural color. Very friendly and professional atmosphere. They go over your body multiple times so the tan is very deep and even. Cost is less than what I normally pay for a spray tan plus there's a buy one get one coupon on the website for your first visit, very nice.

I would recommend this salon to everyone.

I went to Platinum Tan before my recent business trip to Vegas for a custom spray tan.

The tan was totally even, really natural looking, and lasted for quite a while. I cannot recommend this place highly enough!!!

Even more impressive was the fact that they made me feel completely comfortable, casual, and even beautiful as I stood without clothing in a small room with a complete stranger.

Stop off at Platinum Tan & Spa as soon as you get into town...and I guarantee you'll feel fab-oo.

These girls are great! They are always able to accomodate my schedule for appointments and make me feel welcome. I have used them for tanning,airbrush tanning, waxing and eyelash extensions and I have been satisfied every time. I am always complemented on my brows and must give them credit! Also their spray tan application is very professional and is a must for me if I am going to a special event. Whenever I get my spray tan done by them, others always seem to notice and want to know where I went. They definitely take care of you and make you look and feel special!

I have never tanned at a tanning salon but I was curious so when shopping at Horton Plaza I went into Platinum Tan. The girl working greeted me with a huge smile and gave me a little tour of the salon. I was honestly blown away with how big and clean the beds were. The girl let me know of their first time client specials and I ended up buying a package & a lotion which I am very pleased with. I have been tanning their for about two weeks and I am seeing great results!
Not only do they have tanning but they also have great beauty/spa services. The woman who does it is very professional and she makes you feel so comfortable. I got a brazilian wax and brows done by her. She is great at shaping brows. Takes her time and listened to what I wanted. The brazilian was not nearly as painful as past ones I have had. I will be going back for sure!!
