Before making the long drive to Silver City, we read reviews for the Idaho Hotel including the attached Cafe. We noticed the review from July 2014 entitled 'Worse Service'. Other reviews were positive so we gave the Idaho Hotel Cafe a try. Unfortunately, our recent visit may have been worse. As with Simplysarah66 in July, we were ignored by the... More

We drove to Silver City in Idaho! Saw the cemetery, and the town! The hotel really needs some TLC. There is only one trinket store my Daughter loved it! Wish there was more there to see maybe inside the Masonic lodge an old house something! Not like most gohst towns or old mining towns! Glad we can say we did... More

Silver City is a fascinating semi-ghost town, worth the windy and spectacular drive to get there. Our lunch and the service was very good but the best part was reading the facts about the town on the wall of the restaurant, and learning more from the back of the menus. Each menu was followed by copies of news articles and... More

Did not stay at the hotel, however we did try to eat at the small restaurant/bar in the hotel. We were not greeted upon entrance, and didn't realize that restaurant area was open until opening the door. We sat ourselves thinking maybe someone would be out. When we finally got service the woman didn't have anything to say to us... More

Just a little bit out of the ordinary- but Richard will take take of you, and place you in a room just dripping with history- not for the Wimbledon crowd, but for those interested in experiencing Western ghost towns... perfect.

After a long rough drive we finally made it to Hotel Idaho in Silver City. It is right out out of the old West. We half expected Rooster Cogburn to come into the Bar and order up a bottle of Whiskey. Richard the manager would have done his best to make him happy with his old west charm and rough... More

We visited Silver City in late June and spent one night at the wonderful Idaho Hotel. The hotel is fascinating! It's just fixed up enough to keep you comfortable yet locked in time for a fabulous feel of being in the 1890's. Rehabbed historic hotels are nice but the Idaho Hotel was a lifetime favorite for me. I like the... More

My husband and I stayed here July 2, 2013 and of all the memories of our 6-week road trip, this place stands out the most. We do 3-6 week road trips every summer, so we have seen a lot of the U.S. The Idaho Hotel and Silver City have been the most unique and one of the most memorable stops.... More

Great historic experience here at the Idaho Hotel. Relaxed authentic place and people. I would stay here again and hope to bring my parents here next summer while we travel the same route as we did in 2013. No complaints. Good scenery, good location, good facility, good staff -- and good cooking!

If you are an outdoorsie person, you'll love this place. You'll walk into an old silver exchange / hotel lobby / museum, and beyond a second door you will find the restaurant. Call ahead to book a Saturday room, they will probably be sold out if you 'just show up'. Also, you MUST call at least one week ahead if... More
