We recently came to Nevada City and so enjoyed our stay at the Outside Inn. We picked it from other reviewers and were not disappointed. We loved the charm, the quiet, and the ability to walk to town. During the weekend it was full, but still quiet. You are able to park right outside your room. We stayed in the...

We've been looking forward to visiting the Outside Inn for a long time and this weekend we finally made it happen. From the time Liza, the manager, checked us in I knew we had an excellent choice. The was very unique, cute an impeccably clean. For a smaller, older facility our room was amazingly quiet. The room was smallish but...

Almost everything including the check in service is quite good. The only issue are the beds. They are not comfortable. This is the 10th time we've stayed there and the poor sleep experience is consistent. Unfortunately, there is a supply and demand issue in the area, and this hotel is the best option.

I stayed here for 2 nights in November. The inn is lovely, rooms are each unique with cheerful modern designs. No grandma lace curtains here thankfully. Beds are super comfy, the inn room coffee is something you actually want to drink. Owner and front desk are so friendly and knowledgeable about the area and can offer great assistance with places...

We spent 2 nights in the cottage, a two bedroom suite with kitchen. I had the best night sleep I have had in ages. The place is clean and welcoming. The bed linens are soft and beautiful. The bathtub is spacious and wonderful. The cottage is funky in a very charming way; it slopes a little, ceilings all a bit...

An older motel but clean and all the rooms have a theme, it's always a nice place to stay, don't need to say any more but trip advisor insists on more letters so will have to keep saying it's always nice

this is our 5th stay at the Inn while house hunting in the area, and I am in awe of how efficient and cordial the staff is! Also they have updated their late check in policy, though I love the "key under the mat" small time vibe, the new combo boxes are great and we had no problem with them....

Cozy, creatively decorated room, heater works great! Mini-kitchen has everything. Setting is beautiful and quiet, tucked into a close-to-town neighborhood, but easy access, walking distantce, to nature and wildlife hiking. Manager is warm, welcoming and friendly. Genuinely concerned for my comfort. Very knowledgeable of local nature trails, hiking, local and regional parks, in-town events and activities.

I'm from Nevada City but since moving away I always try to get a room at The Outside Inn when we visit. You can't beat the location, it's a short walk to town yet situated in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are all different and very reasonably priced, we can even bring our dog along!
