The Big Idaho Potato will soon become the Big Idaho Potato Hotel.
The Idaho potato, a giant spud made of steel and plaster that’s about the size of a small house, is being converted into a place to stay in the southeast of Boise, the state’s capital.
If you feel your next vacation is lacking starches, consider spending a night inside of a potato. “It would make the best Instagram selfie!” said Laura Martin, Idaho native, self-proclaimed potato lover, and director of the Big Idaho Potato tour.
In 2012, the Big Idaho Potato was created to celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission.
