“Halloween Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is my second stay here, for the week of Halloween (8 nights). This house is in the Marigny, just outside the French Quarter, very close to Frenchmen St. and the music clubs. It is a quiet, safe, laid back neighborhood. Once again, I had the Diamond Room, with its enormous bathroom. Once again, Darrell and Glenn were excellent hosts. They honestly want you to feel at home here, and they succeed. Nicer folks you can't find anywhere.

On a lovely, quiet, safe street only 4 blocks from the French Quarter, the Sunburst Inn is the perfect place to stay in New Orleans. Away from the craziness and noise of the Quarter, but only three blocks from Frenchmen Street, where the real music happens at night. My room was spotless, the bathroom truly amazing, and the innkeepers were lovely, gracious hosts.

This is by far the best B&B I ever stayed in. It is clean, safe, comfortable, and walking distance to the Quarters or an easy $5 cab ride. When I stay here I leave my car on the street and don't touch it until I leave. Never a problem. Hosts Darrell and Glenn are most accommodating to every whim. I'd rather stay here than stay at any other commercial establishment in the city. What can I say, I'm selfish in telling you to keep this secret place to ourselves!

Room Tip: Sunburst Inn is walking distance to several coffee houses and cafes in the Marigney neighborhood.

Darrell and Glen provide comfortable and well-appointed accommodations at a reasonable rate in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. They're gracious and attentive hosts. The Sunburst Inn is only a few blocks from the French Quarter - an easy walk. Darrell and Glen can provide information about area amenities - including venues and events of especial interests to bears and other gay men. A great find and highly recommended.

Darrel and Glen are great hosts and provide a relaxed, comfortable environment. Half way like being in their home and half like a business. The neighborhood has really grown in the last five or six years, with choices for coffee and pastries, as well as other meals. Just a short walk/drive from the French Quarter and easy access to all the major travel roads in NOLA. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: Check out the pastry shop about 4 blocks away.

I must admit that I was a bit hesitant to book this place based on the pictures on their website. However, those pics really don't do it justice!

Our diamond room was very large, with high ceilings, a comfortable bed and a huge bathroom. The amenities provided were much better than in any hotel (that fridge you see in their picture: it's full with free goodies!), the guys were very nice and the common outdoor area is a very nice place to spend an hour resting if you have the time.

We wish we had spent more days at the Sunburst Inn, also because it's located quite close to the French Quarter, and more importantly Frenchman Street, as well as many cafes. It's also a safe area. We'll be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the diamond room and enjoyed it

The house is a Victorian style built in 1905 and has all the original floors and chandeliers with 12 foot ceilings. We are just 5 blocks for the French Quarter and 3 blocks from the famous Frenchman St. where there is live music and great dining. The Street Car line that travels along the river is 5 blocks away and there are also great little cafes on the Conners from our place. The Marigny neighborhood was vote a top ten place to live in 2010 by the ADA. We like to say that we are far enough but close enough to the madness of the Quarter. ... more   less
