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.

This was the second time my husband and I have stayed at the Outside Inn in Nevada City, CA, and it was even better this time, if that is possible! Very clean, comfortable, quiet and a nice walk from the downtown area. We will continue to stay at the Outside Inn when we visit Nevada City, it is such a... More

Wonderfully restored 1940's motel in a wooded area on the adage of lovely small town Nevada City. It reminded us of the Wizard of Oz complete with a Dorothy who was the characterful receptionist ! I think we were perhaps the only visitors without a dog, but thankfully no animal smells in the room. Recommended to all.

We had a wonderful stay at The Outside Inn. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and charming. I especially loved the hammock tucked away in the trees and the babbling brooks. We stayed in the Climbing Suite, which was just like a mini cabin. It had a small kitchenette, sitting area, rock climbing wall, comfy... More

I travel around California for business frequently. I booked this place when the other larger hotels in the area were full (I like my reward points since I travel so much). I read the reviews and decided to take a chance. Nevada City is such a lovely place to work that I ususally stay out and about after work, but... More

Booked a room at the Outside Inn based on Trip Advisor's customer reviews and we thought it was perfect. Cozy and comfortable and sweet management. If you're looking for a little upscale, this is not the place, but loved the feeling and charm. Very clean, nice options and only a few blocks from downtown with great shopping and restaurants! I'd... More

Tucked away in a pretty residential neighborhood on the edge of the charming downtown of Nevada City, the Outside Inn is a cozy, clean and comfortable spot. The owners/management are friendly and helpful (without being obtrusive), with great tourist and dining recommendations, including a basket of menus for local restaurants. Rooms are very clean and well-kept with nice linens, small... More

Used to live in Nevada City, & come back for visits with cherished friends whenever we can. Just past the top of gas-lamp-lit Broad Street, tucked out of sight by a creek, you are well-situated to relax, explore, walk to meals or coffee. Or, you can sit in the garden court or the hidden creek area & read. The mountain... More
