Don't want tell you how quaint and full of whimsy this place is.... I will definitely be back. All the creative little touches make this place a treasure, while it's also clean, modern and comfortable. Love, love, LOVE this little hidden away gem!

I stayed here two years ago and knew then that I couldn't wait return. This time I was returning from Reno and booked our one night stay in the perfect, but smaller, Room 3 1/2. The whole feel of Outside Inn is open, airy and delightful. Our room was perfectly designed, well lit (pull out reading lamps over each bed... More

Clean, friendly staff, very nicely landscaped and decorated. Close to downtown. We were able to easily walk into town for all of our meals. A short drive from the South Yuba River. Lots of fun activities nearby. Perfect!

I just stayed one night with my daughter in the outside inn room (#3 1/2). The room was tiny but perfect do the two of us. It was very clean, had a small fridge, coffee pot, tv. The motel is a short walk from downtown restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

We were only here one night while visiting our son. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The decor is a little tired but that did not effect our comfort. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room had a back door that opens onto the small creek - also two chairs on the back porch. Nice little kitchenette with... More

My better half and I were in town for a wedding, and didn't want to break the bank. This place was great. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was really clean- laminate flooring, instead of carpet. It is walking distance to town, so we didn't drive the car all weekend. What more could you want?! I would... More

The Outside Inn in a charming little motor inn right next to downtown, within walking distance of anything you could want. Also has a great little creek area that runs next to the property with...

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Nevada City, this motel was a sweet retreat for me. It's located near a creek, with lots of trees, and a few neighbors, but overall it's a quiet and peaceful location. It's also walking distance to downtown, where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. There are a lot of hiking trails and... More

We met 3 staff members during our weekend stay, including Erin, one of the owners, and each of them were friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and they have a couple of nice outdoor areas for you to relax when not exploring the trails or strolling around down town. The room was exactly what I expected for the...
