Super cute hotel. We stayed in the Autumn room, which I think is one of their smaller (if not smallest) room but it had everything we needed. Comfortable bed, plenty of blankets, and adorable décor. The bathroom was set up in an unusual way (I'm sure it's original!) but had a large mirror and shelves underneath to accommodate everything you...

Your own little house right in Nevada City. Walking distance to everything including restaurants, shops, and hikes. Best part reserved parking right next to cabin and you need that at times in Nevada City. It is not luxurious buy comfortable. It would be nice if they added a makeup mirror in the bathroom. Also the windows have no screens and...

Upon researching the hotels in Nevada City decided on The Outside Inn. I loved the rooms with all the different themes, we picked the river room and it was clean and spacious. Enjoyed the sound of the stream which ran behind our room, and reading a book in the courtyard was very relaxing. We enjoyed the coffee pot in our...

I loved the Outside Inn. It was the perfect place for my dog and myself. Easy access to the outside for her, and a short walk in to town. The Celestial Room theme was a nice New Age touch and very comfortable. Even though you are next to other guests, it was quiet and peaceful. The creek with the laser...

We stayed in the Paddle Suite. Nice size and layout - more like a one bedroom apartment. Our friends had a smaller room and it was nicely appointed too. Small kitchen with just enough utensils and equipment for 4 people. Will definitely visit again... on the next fly fishing trip!

There are not many choices in Nevada City. We did researched and came upon the Outside Inn. It is located just on the outskirts of town about a five minute walk to the center of town. Easy walk in a little uphill on the way back. The Inn is located on the quiet side of town. The staff at the...

We had a great time on a kid free getaway to the Outside Inn. It's a charming little place in a great location. The front desk staff was super helpful and the room was clean and had everything we needed. The only complaint was that the bed was a little uncomfortable, but we'd still stay here again.

Outside Inn is walking distance from downtown Nevada City in a very quiet neighborhood. There are a few different options for lodging there, from rooms to a 2 bedroom cottage which we rented. It's fully equipped - kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms and an outdoor patio/barbeque area. Excellent service and helpful staff. And dog friendly!

Loved the small town welcome, great place to visit from traveling overseas. We loved being able to walk to town, got to know the folks who worked at SPD, ate pizza at the Northridge, ice cream from Treats, coffee from The Curly Wolf, thanks for all the great local tips.
