Our daughter gave us a week end at the Outside Inn for Christmas. What a thoughtful gift! We had a wonderful time at the Inn. It was charming and clean and the staff and owners were gracious. It is within walking distance of Old town Nevada City and close to many beautiful places in the area. You can walk to...

It is very difficult to find a place with two beds in Nevada City. This is the perfect place. Cozy and comfortable. There is a main room with TV, fridge and microwave. Some rooms have a small kitchenette. Staff is friendly. Dont miss the lights at night by the garden behind the hotel, check the lights by the pool. There...

My wife and I spent only one night here unfortunately. Nevada City is an old gold mining town with lots to do if you like mountains, rivers,history, nice people and great fun food. This little motel is quaint with nice sized clean "cool" rooms in town. They even have a pool, but you can drive maybe five or ten minutes...

Right in Nevada City, dog-welcoming, comfy friendly motel. My room was small, but big enough for me and my very big dog. The bed was comfortable and the room was provided with everything I could want. Outside Inn was reasonably priced; had windows that opened and good reading light and lovely grounds dotted with sculptures and cozy places to sit....

Every room has an exciting theme. I stayed in the Celestial Room which was amazing!! I loved the vibe and energy. Very quaint and within walking distance to the pulse of Neveda City. Enjoyed the drinks at Golden Era and the wine bar at Szbao.

We loved this motel. Each of the the three people we met in the front office were friendly and helpful with information about hiking trails in the area. The housekeeping woman was also nice and worked around our schedule. We stayed in the River room and loved the decor. We appreciated the little things, like good quality organic coffee and...

This was one of the last stops on an eight day road trip and it ended up being one of the best experiences of the trip. Each room has its own theme. We stayed in the Angler room as my husband loves fishing and my daughter and husband stayed in the Winter room. Both rooms definitely gave you a cool...

We only stayed a night, but will definitely be coming back. Conversations we had while staying: "Hard wood floors, what a great idea!" "Let's rent the whole place out a few years in advance so all of our friends can come" "Look how cute this _____ is!" And most importantly, to us anyways- "What a wonderful friendly helpful staff.

This was again a great stay! Outside Inn has just gotten better over the 15 years since my first stay. It doesn't seem it will provide many amenities but actually they pretty much have everything covered. My favorite is the colored, big fluffy towels! It is in a quiet area of Nevada City and love what they have done to...

I really enjoy staying at this unique inn. We have stayed here many times and the theme rooms always put a smile on my face. Nicely located close to the action but away in a quiet neighborhood. The owners have gone out of their way to make this a unique experience.
