What a great idea to turn this old motor lodge into a cute themed motel. The attention to detail is quite pleasing. I can not wait to return to Nevada City in the summer. This little motel seems as if the summer time would be fun; with the outdoor shower and the chairs outside of each unit. It lends itself... More

Thank you! The other great part about the summer time is the swimming pool. Birthday cheer, the creek is such a nice addition in the winter after it rains. More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The facility looks a little older from the outside but when you look closer you see that it is really well maintained and very cute. We stayed in the River Room, which had photos of the local rivers on the wall. The room was clean, cozy and very comfortable. It was a... More

This place is a real gem…clean, right in town, terribly reasonably priced, helpful staff, a cottage for up to six adults…a throwback to a simpler time when things didn't have to be expensive to be exceptional. Planning our next trip and we just arrived home from this one!

We stayed in the Creekside Getaway at this super cool, creative, interesting inn. Super clean, well appointed and located right in the heart of NC. The staff was awesome and helpful and we are looking forward to coming back in the warmer months!

The location of this property is ideal, and keeps them in business. The buildings are older, so the walls are thin, so bring your ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. The check in was great, they let me in an hour ahead, Thanks! My room was the paddlers suite, a comfortable 2 room suite with a refridgerator, microwave,... More

This is our second stay here, we stayed in the #1room titled wildwood room. Next to street but was very quiet. Room was clean well laid out. This is a cozy motel from the 1930's but has been updated and is now n a great location for visiting Nevada City and area. Staff was wonderful and very helpful. Would recommend... More

We always love to stay at the Outside Inn when we visit Nevada City. It is clean and has all the amenities we need. The Historical room is our fave as it has a big queen bed in the front room and a little nook with a bed in the back room where a window lets you listen to the... More
