While working on the DAPL, I stayed from mid-September through December, 2016. I found the Expressway Inn to be very accommodating, comfortable and clean! The staff was always friendly and helpful, the breakfast ladies were always cheerful and chatty, the food was questionable, however. For the money, I loved it!

Stayed here a while ago and it hasn't been updated since. For the price there are other hotels in the area far superior and comparably priced. The hallways and common areas are really run down. Rooms seemed fairly clean but not excessively clean either.

Thanks for the reply. The rooms were remodeled in 2015. This past summer we remodeled the outdoor pool area, and are currently remodeling the hot tub and exercise rooms (completion date is this coming Tuesday, December 13th). After that is completed, we will be moving onto the next project, so I'm sure you will see some nice changes really soon.

Had to pay way too much for this dump! Furniture not dusted, room phone gummy, very uncomfortable queen mattresses(lumpy, soft, old & overused), room coffee maker didn't work correctly, and what coffee did make was horrible. Even the coffee in the lobby & breakfast room was bad. There was a washer & dryer in the hallway close to our room...

Although the building is dated it was clean and the staff was friendly. We had a very good stay. It is great that they have a free hot breakfast, although we slept in and missed it! The location is close to downtown. Note that you should call them directly to book rather than booking online. When you book online they...

We’ve stayed at this motel several times and I’m still very satisfied. I don’t know where we’d get a room for $82 Monday night (our price for a King/2 adults/non-smoking with a sofa/fridge/ microwave/ table/ chairs) anywhere else that would be this clean in such a good location. You can tell the motel’s getting older as I noticed some wear...

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...
