Tri-Citians are cashing in on renting rooms in their homes via AirBnB.

I found an amazing 67 rentals available in Tri-Cities metro ranging from $30 per night to $165 per night. Some are just single room rentals to the entire home... Good alternative if you have family or friends that need a place to stay!

In case you didn't know what AirBnB is here's how they describe themselves on-line
