This was a very institutional place. It kind of reminded me of a college dorm with cement walls, etc. It was clean and the staff was helpful. Breakfasts were VERY basic and uninspired. No real amenities except an outdoor pool that was not yet open for the season and a hot tub. Location ok, good if access to the mall... More

Although the hotel may have been a little dated they were working on updating when I was there! But where in charming North Dakota isn't everything a little dated? The hotel was very clean employees were extraordinarily friendly! The bed was a little rough, but the spa/sauna and the swimming pool made up for it! I would go out of... More

Although billed as a no-frills experience, it was very positive. The check-in process was smooth, the room was very good, and the staff were extremely helpful. The hotel is adjacent to a major shopping area, which also features many dining options. The Event Center is only blocks away, and tourist destinations are only a short drive away.

I have stayed here a few times for business conferences and have found it to be very comfortable with a very friendly and helpful staff. This last time the room had two comfortable queen beds and a tub/shower in the well-equipped bathroom. It was great to have a fridge and microwave in the room since we had leftovers from an... More

The room was clean and the bed was ok, but the room and hotel are very dated. The wifi is a joke.The connection keeps dropping every 2 min so it makes it hard to get any work done. It is close to the airport, but Bismark isn't so big that it only saves you a minute or two from any... More

I stayed at this hotel because they have a shuttle to and from the airport. The cost was low and the room was clean. I never could get the internet to work in my room, but luckily I was only there for one night. The bed was comfortable and breakfast the next morning was the usual fare. There was a... More

I would almost bet that there is no other hotel in a state capital in our country that offers the pricing here. And that is only the beginning. The staff is courteous, accommodating.....just plain professional. Free breakfast is prepared in-house and very good. It may not have all the bells and whistles of some places you'll stay. But, then again,... More

The Expressway Inn is a great value. The staff are very accommodating. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The hotel is in a great location - across from the mall and short distance to restaurants.

I have been staying at this Expressway Inn for many years while in the Bismarck area attending bulls sales in Feb, but I advise booking ahead due to events next door at the huge City Event Center. Has airport shuttle & is the closet motel to the airport, close to plenty dining.
