Beautfiully Restored Victorian Hotel.

West Facing, bay and ocean views, built in 1900, walk to Little Italy, Downtown and even Balboa Park. This historic Victorian has wide halls, and 10 foot ceilings that speak to a different era. The Hawthorne Inn looks exactly the same as when it was built. Even the interior hallways have not been altered. Up the street is the luncheonette, "Hob Nob Hill", established in 1943.

A complimentary bottle of wine will be waiting for you to say thank you for staying. We hope you enjoy your stay. We are a ten minute walk to Little Italy with its fabulous array of restaurants and public art.

Our Little Italy is a modern urban neighborhood in the heart of San Diego. We have watched The Little Italy Association revive this once thriving neighborhood; while telling the story of Little Italy to its visitors through public art displays and amazing piazzas. San Diego’s Little Italy is not only a model urban neighborhood for the City of San Diego, but is also serving as a model for the handful of Little Italys remaining throughout the country.

And you can also get to World Famous Balboa Park which is five blocks away. For less than $59 you can purchase a week's pass to over 16 museums and attractions. With your Explorer Multi-Day Pass, you have the opportunity to explore each of the 16 museums in Balboa Park for an entire week!

About michelle parker

Having lived in San Diego for over thirty years and worked up the street at 6th and Hawthorn. When the inn became available for purchase we jumped at the opportunity and have been enjoying breathing new life into it. While challenging at times, the the results are worth the effort.

                                                              Located a short Uber ride to most San Diego tourist destinations. Could have done without my rental car. Clean and quiet in a nice neighborhood with a market and great breakfast/lunch place a block away. Friendly and helpful staff.


                                                              Bankers Hill (Park West), San Diego, CA, USA

                                                              An hourlong lunch break is all you need for a refreshing stroll through Bankers Hill, a walk that offers views of San Diego Bay, neighborhood canyons and historic landmarks. Developed in the 1890s, Bankers Hill was given its moniker because of the neighborhood’s bevy of affluent homeowners. Today, quiet streets lined with regal homes built by architects such as Irving Gill and Frank Mead characterize the community. Bankers Hill can be approached from any direction for an extended jog or walk. It is bordered by Mission Hills and Hillcrest to the north and Balboa Park to the east. One great walk begins near a 1922 white Georgian Revival home at the corner of First Avenue and Quince Street, about six blocks west of Balboa Park. Head east on Quince Street until you reach a dead end. Here you will find the Quince Street Footbridge connecting Fourth and Second streets. Built in 1905, the wooden bridge overlooks Maple Canyon and is a great vantage point for scoping out the bay and Point Loma. Once across the bridge, turn right and travel down Second Avenue for a glance back into architectural history. At 136 Redwood St. stands one of the oldest homes in the area, built in 1898 through a partnership between William Hebbard and Irving Gill. a great place for a beer? Bolt Brewery Bolt Brewery has become a success in the Little Italy thanks to Clint Stromberg. Operating a 10-barrel system he built with his own two hands in Budapest, Hungary, in the mid-90s, Stromberg can produce roughly 2,000 barrels of beer annually. His work results in a variety of beers served daily here. However, Bolt Brewery isn’t just about the beer. Here, they love giving back the community. Their mission? To deliver awesome beer and help the community at any given opportunity.
