We explored Silver City for one night. What an neat adventure! The drive was beautiful! The Owyhee Mountains are gorgeous. Silver City is a cute rustic, old town. No bells and whistles. Quiet, local, and friendly. There are only 23 buildings. Although hard to call it a town. All buildings are privately owned. The only businesses in town are the... More

Thank you Tripadvisor reviewers for letting me know about the drive before I started!! Knowing that I had many miles of winding, steep, dirt (and sometimes very rough) road prepared me to just "let go" and slowly enjoy the scenery. :) Note to anyone considering the trip that if you have a low car you may want to rethink your...

I heard the name of this placed mentioned in small talk at work and while driving through Idaho I remembered that name. On a whim we decided detour our route and head to this placed called Silver City. We were very unaware of the long dirt road to get there but thank goodness it was a nice day because we... More

First, Silver City itself is an old mining town. Back in the day it was a bustling town with a lot of activity, just as you would expect an old west mining town to have. Silver and gold were mined. Present day, it's a small ghost town with a lot of history. Many of the buildings are vacant. Many of... More

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
