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.

We recently came to Nevada City and so enjoyed our stay at the Outside Inn. We picked it from other reviewers and were not disappointed. We loved the charm, the quiet, and the ability to walk to town. During the weekend it was full, but still quiet. You are able to park right outside your room. We stayed in the...

We've been looking forward to visiting the Outside Inn for a long time and this weekend we finally made it happen. From the time Liza, the manager, checked us in I knew we had an excellent choice.

Almost everything including the check in service is quite good. The only issue are the beds. They are not comfortable. This is the 10th time we've stayed there and the poor sleep experience is consistent. Unfortunately, there is a supply and demand issue in the area, and this hotel is the best option.

I stayed here for 2 nights in November. The inn is lovely, rooms are each unique with cheerful modern designs. No grandma lace curtains here thankfully. Beds are super comfy, the inn room coffee is something you actually want to drink. Owner and front desk are so friendly and knowledgeable about the area and can offer great assistance with places...

We spent 2 nights in the cottage, a two bedroom suite with kitchen. I had the best night sleep I have had in ages. The place is clean and welcoming. The bed linens are soft and beautiful. The bathtub is spacious and wonderful. The cottage is funky in a very charming way; it slopes a little, ceilings all a bit...

An older motel but clean and all the rooms have a theme, it's always a nice place to stay, don't need to say any more but trip advisor insists on more letters so will have to keep saying it's always nice

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....
