Historic Inn Renting Rooms For $25

There's a new place to sleep in the Silver Valley, where you can lay down your head for as little as $25 a night. Closed for years, Kellogg's historic McKinley Inn is back open, resurrected as a hostel.”This is the first building that really caught my eye when I came to Kellogg,” said inn proprietor Pat Ryan.
