We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Nevada City and wished we had booked longer than our 1 night. We received such a friendly welcome upon arrival and this was much appreciated after a very long drive from Yosemite! We stayed in the Autumn room which had a real charm to the decoration and a small but functional bathroom. Reception were... More

We stayed at the Outside Inn on the recommendation of our daughter as I was looking for a pet friendly place and she has stayed there with her dog. It was clean and cozy! Parking is convenient, right in front of your room. Nice size refrigerators too! We were able to walk into town each morning and have coffee and... More

Our daughter gave us a week end at the Outside Inn for Christmas. What a thoughtful gift! We had a wonderful time at the Inn. It was charming and clean and the staff and owners were gracious. It is within walking distance of Old town Nevada City and close to many beautiful places in the area. You can walk to... More

It is very difficult to find a place with two beds in Nevada City. This is the perfect place. Cozy and comfortable. There is a main room with TV, fridge and microwave. Some rooms have a small kitchenette. Staff is friendly. Dont miss the lights at night by the garden behind the hotel, check the lights by the pool. There... More

My wife and I spent only one night here unfortunately. Nevada City is an old gold mining town with lots to do if you like mountains, rivers,history, nice people and great fun food. This little motel is quaint with nice sized clean "cool" rooms in town. They even have a pool, but you can drive maybe five or ten minutes... More

Right in Nevada City, dog-welcoming, comfy friendly motel. My room was small, but big enough for me and my very big dog. The bed was comfortable and the room was provided with everything I could want. Outside Inn was reasonably priced; had windows that opened and good reading light and lovely grounds dotted with sculptures and cozy places to sit.... More

Every room has an exciting theme. I stayed in the Celestial Room which was amazing!! I loved the vibe and energy. Very quaint and within walking distance to the pulse of Neveda City. Enjoyed the drinks at Golden Era and the wine bar at Szbao.

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
