    San Diego's best affordably priced room.


    Ron Olsen and Matt Wall are resident owners the Sunburst Court Inn, San Diego’s newest gay friendly guest house catering to visitors from all walks of life.i.e. Not an exclusively gay property!

    “This is something we have always wanted to do” says Ron Olsen, who not only greets all guests when checking in, but ensures that all suites are cleaned and stocked with complimentary coffee, tea, bottled water, assorted snacks, and chocolate candy; canned soda, red and white wines are offered for a nominal fee.

    The Sunburst Inn offers three one-bedroom, five-room suites that sleep up to two persons each with a comfortable king-size bed, plenty of closet space, dresser drawer, and ceiling fan; the kitchen is complete with glasses, coffee cups, plates and utensils, coffee maker and refrigerator. Each suite has a small dining area complete with table and chair for two, the living room has a 20 inch color flat screen TV with free cable, 3-disc CD player, sofa, love seat and two telephones to make free local calls. The bathroom has a standard tub/shower and toilet with separate vanity and sink. Each suite’s décor is unique creating a homey feeling.

    I enjoyed my stay over the 4th of July weekend, I would definitely stay here again.

    Unique Quality: The Sunburst Court Inn is only a 15-minute drive from San Diego airport, the Amtrak rail station and the San Diego Cruise Ship Terminal.

    The property is secure with a coded gate to enter and offers free onsite parking.

    Maximum occupancy is two persons per suite, suites can be rented for one or more nights with no minimum stay, and all reservations must be made online through the Sunburst Inn website.

    The Sunburst Court Inn is Gay Friendly but all are welcome!

    Over the 2008 Christmas weekend I stayed here again, just wanted to say the Sunburst Court Inn is still a great place to stay! Small changes have taken place however, just light snacks (Pretzel chips) are offered, so no more soda and wine. Bottled water is still offered and coffee (I think tea is too). No cooking is allowed even though the stove is still in place and no microwaver either but San Diego is a great place to dine out and you can still have food delivered, just ask Matt or Ron for suggestions. The bed is VERY comfortable with hi thread count sheets.

    April 2010. I stayed with Matt and Ron again for two nights since I needed to do a run to Tijuana. The place is still looking great, very comfortable but a few things have changed. All the complimentary snacks, water, wine are no longer offered. Coffee and tea are offered and there is a small coffee maker and electric water heater for tea drinkers.

    The property is in a residential area very near Hill Crest and still offers complimentary parking. For the price you can't go wrong in my opinion.

    These are former 1 bedroom apartments so the bedroom has one King Size bed and the living room couch does not open into a bed so these are really only good for two people max that don't mind sharing a bed. You'll see a stove/cooker in the kitchen but it's not connected, think of these units more as 1 bedroom suites and plan to eat out. There is a full size fridge/freezer in each unit however and free Wi-Fi.

    Directions: The Sunburst Court Inn is located in one of San Diego’s oldest neighborhoods, University Heights, which borders Hillcrest, another popular area known for its tolerance, “alternative culture”, locally owned businesses, restaurants, stores and cafes.
