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

Stayed for two nights at the recommendation of a local of Nevada City. Wished I could have stayed longer. It was so relaxing and quiet! 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...

Enjoyed a lovely weekend at the Inn with several other friends who were all in town for a wedding weekend. The accommodations were quaint, clean, and perfectly located. Would definitely return and highly recommend!

I had a very nice stay at Outside Inn. I had a late arrival and they made it easy for me to check in. I stayed in room 3.5 "Outside In Room" and I enjoyed the theme. The beds were comfortable and the shower was very pleasant. Thanks! Recommended. :)

I have stayed at the Outside Inn more than a dozen times and will continue to go back. It's close to the Yuba River. They're very dog friendly and it's very homelike staying there. Book early! They get filled up quickly.

This is now my favorite of the many B&Bs and small hotels at which I've stayed. If you're looking for luxury accommodations, this isn't it, but if you want a super clean, charming, comfortable place to stay in a great little town with lots to do, you won't be disappointed. The owner and staff are welcoming, appreciative of your business... More
