Reviewed yesterday NEW

this is our 5th stay at the Inn while house hunting in the area, and I am in awe of how efficient and cordial the staff is! Also they have updated their late check in policy, though I love the "key under the mat" small time vibe, the new combo boxes are great and we had no problem with them....

Cozy, creatively decorated room, heater works great! Mini-kitchen has everything. Setting is beautiful and quiet, tucked into a close-to-town neighborhood, but easy access, walking distantce, to nature and wildlife hiking. Manager is warm, welcoming and friendly. Genuinely concerned for my comfort. Very knowledgeable of local nature trails, hiking, local and regional parks, in-town events and activities.

I'm from Nevada City but since moving away I always try to get a room at The Outside Inn when we visit. You can't beat the location, it's a short walk to town yet situated in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are all different and very reasonably priced, we can even bring our dog along!

This is a lovely little hotel and the customer service is fantastic. I'm from the area and they have accommodated me every time I have needed their services . It's dog friendly and the pets love the cookies... Don't miss out on the seasonal decorations .

This is an adorable little Inn with many amenities. We had a very pleasant stay and would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. The room was fairly small but well appointed and appropriate updates have been made to keep things comfortable (such as climate control). The staff was also very friendly and helpful. This is the kind of...

Very enjoyable location with easy access to town and nature trails on foot. Staff was very helpful with information about places to go and things to do. The Single Track Suite was comfortable and clean, but somewhat dark, and could use more light fixtures. Also, getting the air conditioning to work was a challenge, but resolved itself eventually. I would...

Stayed here for an anniversary with my wife. Small but cute. Very comfortable bed, one block away from Downtown Nevada City and lovely situation above Deer Creek. It was raining when we stayed so we couldn't sit in the chairs by the waterside but will do so the next time we stay. Also, this cottage studio does not have a...

Happy anniversary, glad you enjoyed the Creekside Hideaway, the one benefit to the rain is that the sound of Deer Creek is even better! But do come back another time, the patio is a lovely place to sit.

We stayed at the Creekside Hideaway that's on Cabin Street. Great place to sit outside and listen to the Deer Creek rushing by. A very peaceful stay we had. We had a very nice dinner at Leftys Grill which was a 10 min walk.
