  • I have been going to California Tan for 18ish years now and would not go anywhere else. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable and makes an effort to remember your name when you walk in the door. I highly recommend this place! Thank you Chris and staff!

  • If I could give Leanne 10 stars I would!  I opted for the in-home, mobile service and I'll never go back to a booth again.  The tan was absolutely perfect and Leanne was so professional and sweet... she didn't even comment on my radiating white skin!

  • The staff genuinely care about you and their owner Chris will make sure he is happy with your result before leaving. All this treatment was under $50! To my surprise with this amazing service they do not even have a tip option something I would suggest for them. I HIGHLY recommend California Tan to everyone, especially if you want immediate colour and have heard horror stories of spray tans go to the professionals there they will make sure to ease your mind and make sure your spray is flawless. SUNKISSED for Stampede!!

  • There is a large parking lot in front of the business so that is never an issue. Their hours suit everyone's needs, so again, that is never an issue. They offer a wide range of tanning beds and 3 bronzers. Proof that this establishment is pro-active in providing the best business to their clientele. I highly recommend California Tan and I will never go anywhere else. The family knows that gift certificates from California Tan are a priority on my wish list!

  • My experience has been nothing short of perfection. Don, Chris, and their staff have always been friendly and accommodating. More importantly, the facility is extremely clean and well maintained. I am notorious for spontaneously dropping in or calling to arrange an appointment in 15 minutes and the staff have always been honest as to whether my request can be accommodated.

  • Thanks so much for making my tanning experience unbelievable. For 25 years, I have watched and seen all this business thrive and it is all because of you people and all your great PR. Keep up the good work.
