We loved this motel. Each of the the three people we met in the front office were friendly and helpful with information about hiking trails in the area. The housekeeping woman was also nice and worked around our schedule. We stayed in the River room and loved the decor. We appreciated the little things, like good quality organic coffee and... More

This was one of the last stops on an eight day road trip and it ended up being one of the best experiences of the trip. Each room has its own theme. We stayed in the Angler room as my husband loves fishing and my daughter and husband stayed in the Winter room. Both rooms definitely gave you a cool... More

We only stayed a night, but will definitely be coming back. Conversations we had while staying: "Hard wood floors, what a great idea!" "Let's rent the whole place out a few years in advance so all of our friends can come" "Look how cute this _____ is!" And most importantly, to us anyways- "What a wonderful friendly helpful staff.

This was again a great stay! Outside Inn has just gotten better over the 15 years since my first stay. It doesn't seem it will provide many amenities but actually they pretty much have everything covered. My favorite is the colored, big fluffy towels! It is in a quiet area of Nevada City and love what they have done to... More

I really enjoy staying at this unique inn. We have stayed here many times and the theme rooms always put a smile on my face. Nicely located close to the action but away in a quiet neighborhood. The owners have gone out of their way to make this a unique experience.

We really enjoyed our stay here, clean, great location, quiet, nice folks. This is the kind of place you want to 'keep for yourself'.........but that, of course, is not fair. I actually booked this for myself and a couple of buddies during a motorcycle road trip. We all liked it and now plan to bring our wives back to stay... More

Outside in....We came here with our daughter and it was perfect. Too bad the pool was still cold because it would have been a treat. All in all-great location, lovely hosts, cute room-all you need.

I think my description of the pool is refreshing, but yes, it can be a bit brisk since it is not heated... but just come back when it's 100 degrees! Glad you enjoyed your stay, we look forward to having you return. More

We stayed here during a Mini Cooper car club event. It was 10 minutes walk to the center of downtown for downtown restaurants. You can park in front of your room (my friends stayed downtown and had to hunt for a parking space. We stayed in the Anglers room (#10). Loved the fisherman theme. The staff was so warm and... More

We stayed in the Creekside Hideaway for one night during a 3 week tour of America. The mini vintage cottage was beautiful and in a great location for the small town. It was very quiet and is perfect for couples. I would highly recommend it.
