We had not planned any overnight stay in Nevada City but when we saw how charming this little town is, we decided to look for a place to sleep and went to ask at the Tourist Office. So it was thanks to them how we found the Outside Inn where there still was an available room: Room 3 1/2 (three...

We stayed here for a girls night out, wanting to enjoy dinner and dessert in town and not wanting to worry about having to my drive home afterwards. My guests were from out of town and this would be their first experience of the "little town up in the hills" I had moved away from them for....I wanted their impression...

I had a nice stay in Nevada City and was able to walk downtown to get coffee in the morning. I love the area too, it's really beautiful with nice trees and traveling to Nevada City makes you feel like you are going back in time to a time when life was more simple.

A friend and I just needed a get away without getting away! This is also the first place we recommend for friends visiting from out of town. It gives you the real Nevada City experience; funky, fun, friendly and super cool. Original art and attention to detail make it extra special. If you want boring corporate hotel, this isn't for...

WE stayed at the Outside Inn recently and loved it! We really love how close it is to downtown. The room was so clean. The Inn is in a quaint neighborhood that is safe and quiet. We look forward to returning soon.

I stayed here for 1 night while in town for a wedding. The room was exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. I really appreciated the attention to details -- like an ample supply of coffee creamers, some little chocolate bar snacks, lots of info available on local attractions and places to eat, and friendly staff. The price was also highly competitive,...

The decorations and room themes are a cheezy veneer over a cheap roadside motel with tiny, minimally-renovated bathrooms, and cheap furnishings. Rather than feeling like guests and eliminating stress, staff made us feel like we were an imposition. The back door to my room outside wouldn't lock. The front desk was closed so fearing for my safety as a lone...

We had a lovely two night stay at the Outside Inn. Erin was wonderfully helpful both before and during our stay, even allowing us to borrow a vaccum cleaner to seal our vaccum seal bags for our long haul flight to Australia. This Inn is cute, clean and funky with a fantastic location within easy walking distance to downtown Nevada...

Nevada City is charming, and this little Inn was a superb and convenient overnight stay. So good, in fact, that I decided to stay an extra night and upgraded rooms. The rooms are very nicely decorated and everything worked. The service was friendly, quick, and helpful. Would easily recommend a stay here to anyone - and next time (there will...

Had a great stay at the Outside Inn over MLK weekend. Stayed in their largest and smallest places. Cottage was great, beds were comfy and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Walking distance from downtown makes it great for location!
