There are now four hotels in Rexburg. There’s a Springhill Suites and an AmericInn by the south interchange, and a Days Inn by the Main street exit on at the intersection of Hwy20 and Hwy33, and a Super 8 on the corner of 2nd West and Main Street. The Super 8 is walking distance to campus, the others aren’t. We’re negotiating a discount for AAPT/SPS visitors at the Springhill and the AmericInn that will be something like $70/night tax. We weren’t able to negotiate anything with the others. They may have better rates.
