Good location (5 min walk to centre of town) in lovely neighbourhood, very friendly owner, charming clean rooms, nicely kept gardens. Very thoughtfully put together property. We were drawn to this motel for it's low price and good reviews and we were not disappointed!

My partner and I just celebrated an anniversary and were not able to leave town (Nevada City)so we stayed at the "Creek Side Cabin" and it was so much fun! We would not change a thing. We had everything we needed there. We felt like tourists in our own little town and it felt like we got away. Thank you... More

You wont find a sweeter more restful place to stay than the Outside Inn. They made us cozy, the bed was glorious,with soft sheets. The patio fireplace was lovely next to the stream. Its our favorite place to stay..

We are often traveling to and from the Sierra Mts. on Highway 20. Nevada City is a good stopping point for us.The 2 main reasons we choose the Outside Inn is: It's pet friendly and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Yes, It is funky and rustic. But comfortable with a quirky charm to it. I'd have to... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The owners were super nice and friendly; all the rooms had their own character and were very clean; short walk into town; and a great reasonable price. If in the area, I would totally stay here again.

I think this is the best option in Nevada City -- most things there are either super expensive or total dives. This place is cute and convenient to town. I like that it's family run. But, I think it's a bit overpriced and overrated for what it is. The economy rooms are TINY and not that cheap, and none of... More

Great little place. Very clean, quiet and friendly helpful staff. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Cabin. It's old school, retro not your standard cookie cutter hotel room and that's why its so wonderful. Short walk to town. Will come back again.

We booked 2 rooms over Christmas. The number of guests in our party kept changing, as did the day of departure, but the staff was always gracious and accommodating. Also, a plumbing leak was reported and promptly taken care of.

Fans of the Outside Inn return year after year to their favorite cabins in this 1940's "Motor Court" that's taken on a new personality with a dozen themed rooms. A unique option for your romantic weekend away is the "Hideaway" - billed as the city's smallest residence this one room cabin is mostly hidden on the banks of the Deer... More

Reasonable, quiet, wonderful staff, great location, pet friendly, clean, cozy, etc. This place is a gem! Not fancy, just a basic room, and none of the tasteless clutter and nonsense that often times comes with a bed and breakfast inn. We will be back for sure.
