This charming Inn is gracious down to the littlest details. I stayed in the Autumn Room with a queen bed. There was a rocking chair, reading lamps, mini refrigerator, small bench to hold my steaming hot coffee, (real cream mimi-moos not powdered) Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash dispensers in shower. They even provided a nightlight in the bathroom! There was... More

Amazing place and people. Employes are nice. The pool is fun, but a little cold. All the rooms are incredible. The place is super close to town. It has a fun loop to ride bikes along. Every thing about it is super fun.

I've stayed at the Outside Inn enough now to consider it a home away from home. My dog usually comes with me and even she gets excited. The Inn is clean, cozy, and very welcoming. I've never had a bad experience there and the staff is beyond welcoming. It's within walking distance to town and the drive to the Yuba... More

We love going to Neveda City so we can spend time on the Yuba River. Access is so close to the Outside Inn. We have been enjoying visiting the Outside Inn for about 5 years and always enjoy our stay. Staff is great and the facility is well kept. Great little walk to downtown as well.

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!
