The plush Shoshone-Bannock Hotel & Event Center in eastern Idaho has come up with a creative way to capitalize on the state’s move to up speed limits on rural southern Idaho interstates to 80 mph tomorrow: It’s offering a special $80-per-room rate, noting that the Fort Hall hotel is at Exit 80 (on I-15) and the rate is in honor of the 80 mph speeds that motorists now can legally drive to get there. Tomorrow from 8 a.m. to midnight, the hotel will offer the special rate, good for a single night’s stay between July 24 and 31. “We want to help our guests take advantage of our location,” said Echo Marshall, director of sales and marketing; you can read the full announcement here.
