I admit that there are not many choices of accommodation in Nevada City. We chose the Outside Inn due to proximity to family. However, you get far better "charm" and "quaintness" for less money if you stay in Grass Valley. The bed was so hard it was like sleeping on the floor. The pillows were so thin as to be... More

We've stayed at the Outside Inn several times. The most recent was this past weekend. Once again we weren't disappointed. Clean thyme style room with small kitchen and separate bedroom. Everything clean and neat. Only issue was that the GFI in the bathroom was broken, therefore there was no working plug in the bathroom. We worked around it and alerted... More

Thanks for the nice review, I am happy to report that we did fix the plug in the bathroom as soon as the room was unoccupied, but we always appreciate the head's up so we can fix things in a timely manner. More

My girlfriend and I decided to take off on a 5 day road trip w/ her chocolate lab and just drive the back roads of California until we felt like stopping. This was my first trip with a dog and I had no idea what to expect. In the late afternoon, while I drove, she check Tripadvisor for pet friendly... More

The outside inn is a jewel of Nevada City & the staff are so knowledgable about all the things locally available to do! I think you could stay for weeks & never run out of activities! I love that there are adult as well as family venues to choose from!

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... More

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... More

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,... More
