What a charming motel. This is an older property but just charming, and the owner Erin is sooo helpful and nice. As I said it is older but clean and nothing beats clean, one note if you are a larger person you may not want unit 2, this is probably the smallest and was perfect for us on a quick... More

My kids and I enjoyed our stay in the Outside Inn last week. The location was delightful, within easy walking distance of downtown. The front desk staff were charming and helpful. Our room was clean and quiet. It was affordable. They kindly let us store our bags on our departure day and we used the awesome outdoor shower after a... More

My wife and I are from Sacramento and have stayed in Nevada City about a half dozen times. This is pretty much our favorite. The variety of room options is part of what makes this place special. You can get a traditional motel type room, or a small cabin, or a larger cabin to share with family or friends. We... More

Stayed solo in the smaller Room 3 1/2 with its clouds theme. First time in area and stayed one night, but would come back for multiple days. Room: Clean, cozy, inviting. Bed was great with soft linens. Shower pressure was good, lots of hot water. Little fridge in my room, but others have kitchenettes and kitchens. Strong wifi signal in... More

Stayed at Outside Inn for a friend's wedding that was in nearby Grass Valley and it was an excellent time. The staff was super friendly, the property is small but has a cute picnic and grass area in the center and a pool on the side. We stayed in River Room 8, which was adorable. I shared with a married... More

It's worth every penny but tricky to get there. When you get to the bridge turn left into what looks like someone's driveway or alley. The cabin is on the right with a carport you pull into. Best to back into the drive than to pull in head first. Be carefully pulling out onto the street. It is uphill and... More

If you like small towns with a lot of history don't miss out, stop in Nevada City!! We stayed at the Outside Inn Motel and our room was called the Winter room. Each room has a different name and it's own decor. The room was very clean and quite for being off of one of the main streets. But for... More

The hotel has the feel of staying at my grandparents lake cabin. It was charming, clean and had what I needed with a big enough fridge to buy groceries for the week and a hot plate for cooking. I would definitely stay there again.

My dog and I were made very welcome. Comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms and convenient walking distance to downtown Nevada City. Staff was very helpful in recommending day trips to state parks and places to go in town.
