I think this is the best option in Nevada City -- most things there are either super expensive or total dives. This place is cute and convenient to town. I like that it's family run. But, I think it's a bit overpriced and overrated for what it is. The economy rooms are TINY and not that cheap, and none of... More

Great little place. Very clean, quiet and friendly helpful staff. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Cabin. It's old school, retro not your standard cookie cutter hotel room and that's why its so wonderful. Short walk to town. Will come back again.

We booked 2 rooms over Christmas. The number of guests in our party kept changing, as did the day of departure, but the staff was always gracious and accommodating. Also, a plumbing leak was reported and promptly taken care of.

Fans of the Outside Inn return year after year to their favorite cabins in this 1940's "Motor Court" that's taken on a new personality with a dozen themed rooms. A unique option for your romantic weekend away is the "Hideaway" - billed as the city's smallest residence this one room cabin is mostly hidden on the banks of the Deer... More

Reasonable, quiet, wonderful staff, great location, pet friendly, clean, cozy, etc. This place is a gem! Not fancy, just a basic room, and none of the tasteless clutter and nonsense that often times comes with a bed and breakfast inn. We will be back for sure.

I have stayed in a couple of rooms at the Outside Inn and all of them are clean, cute, and more spacious then expected. The location is great and really convenient, and the staff are friendly and pretty knowledgable about the area / things to do

The last time my wife and I stayed at the Outside Inn, I mentioned some problems we had while we stayed there. That was three years ago. The reason we didn't go back in the ensuing years was not that we didn't like the Inn, it was simply that we hadn't revisited the Nevada City area for various reasons. We... More

Bygone simplicity and quirkiness makes for a clean, quiet stay in this Broad Street lodging. Staff is friendly, helpful and the prices can't be beat. If you don't enjoy your stay there's something not quite right with you, man! The themed rooms are comforting, charming. The coffee's good, the bed's okay. Don't miss the laser lights casting fairy, flowing glows... More

First of all I am going to say that I find this inn to be wonderful in many respects. The rooms are very cute and comfortable and each one is distinctly different. The location can’t be beat—quiet area, but just a couple blocks from town. I loved that Liz Collins (favorite artist of mine) has painted a mural outside the... More
