Behold The “Sleep-In” Potato! “What The Friday” Heads To Idaho For A Night Of “Spud” Life!
You know the idea of “What The Friday” – I find something that is so funny, outrageous or just plain strange that I have to share it….and this one is no exception!
Ready for this? The Idaho Potato Commission has gifted Airbnb with a six-ton potato hotel set on 400 acres of land – the “Big Idaho Potato Hotel!”
I love this celebration of the potato!
Yes, it was built to look EXACTLY like an Idaho Spud, but this is not an actual oversized potato. Instead, this is a 28-foot long structure made from steel, plaster, and concrete, and unloaded on this land to be slept in!
It was created to celebrate the Idaho Potato Commission’s 75th anniversary – and I for one am hungry to celebrate!
I found this picture online, and located a story that told me more detail.
“Despite looking like an actual potato on the outside, the inside is surprisingly chic. There are millennial pink chairs, house plants, an all-white queen-size bed, and even a fireplace. (There’s air conditioning too, thankfully).”
As you can see, it is cute inside, but be aware: there’s no kitchen inside this potato, just a small bathroom with a wash basin, toilet, and sink.
You can stay in the “Big Idaho Potato Hotel” for just $200 a night plus a $31 service fee and $16 in occupancy taxes and fees. It’s booked through May, but there are plenty of open dates starting in June! To note, there is no WiFi or TV inside the potato, so consider this your own mini technology detox.

So, would you stay here? I sure would! It can’t be any worse that this:
Remember these microscopic apartments? Imagine living in an apartment smaller than a parking spot!
