“This place rocks!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Came here with my wife and son for hockey camp at the Univeristy of North Dakota. If traveling with children this is a fantastic place to stay and here's why. They have a gameroom which consists of fooseball, xbox, air hockey, and board games. They also have a great pool and hot tub area. The best part is the food served. The breakfast was fantastic and provided a large area to eat. Many selections to even satisfy the pickiest eaters (my son). In the evenings they also serve a light dinner and include free drinks (beer, wine, or pop). The evening food was awesome to help cut costs of an already expensive trip. They served mac n cheese, fried shrimp, hamburgers, tacos and fajitas and always had fruit, vegetables etc. to accompany the meals. The location was great being right off of I-29 and provided quick access to anywhere you wanted to go. The staff were very helpful and polite. The room was clean, comfortable, and had great wifi. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting a nice place to stay!

Room Tip: My room was a king with pullout queen sofa. My son slept on the pull out one night and decided to j...

Kids love the game room, it's been far more popular than we imagined! With the sofa sleepers being full size and not the normal small ones, it makes a great bed for kids, allowing everyone ample space to be comfortable when sleeping. We hope to see you guys again soon, or at least for next year's camp! -- Nick Hamilton, Operations Manager

We stayed as 2 families (4 and 5) for one night in August 2014. The hotel is very new (still has that new hotel smell!) and is well laid out. Check-in was a breeze and we were in our very spacious rooms in no time. The fridge and microwave are great, and the flat-screen tv's had tons of channels. The ceilings are very high in the rooms, at least on the first floor, which made the room seem even bigger. There were 4 bath towels in the room, not 2 as is the case many times we visit smaller hotels. The water was hot and the shower had lots of water pressure.

We were there to shop, swim and relax. The kids enjoyed the pool, although it is a bit small, they still had a blast with all the soft balls to throw at each other and the basketball net. The hot tub was spacious and hot. There were plenty of towels in the pool area, which seem to run out at many hotels.

The wifi worked excellent - no issues there. The games room was a nice touch and the kids tried out some video games on the xbox360. There was also air hockey, fooseball, board games and books It was a nice place to sit and relax.

The breakfast was very good with many items to choose from. There were 4 hot dishes, and you could make waffles. A nice touch to the waffles were 3 kinds of fresh fruit and cans of whipped cream. The coffee and tea area had lots to choose from including flavour shots.

This is our newest favorite hotel to stay at in Grand Forks and we will definitely book here again on our next visit.

I have stayed here in the past, but recently brought the entire staff (plus players and coaches) for a hockey camp in Grand Forks. The entire staff could not have been more helpful, from check-in to making sure we were all comfortable. The happy hour and buffet was a welcome sight for tired and hungry coaches. We will be back next year and on any trip to Grand Forks.

We were very happy to have your group stay with us! We do our Manager's social for the very reason you guys loved it, coming back to the hotel after a long day and not having to worry about dinner is something a lot of guests appreciate. Can't wait to have you back again for the next camp! -- Nick Hamilton, Operations Manager

Nice new hotel in Grand Forks - Very clean and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff. Pool and hot tub area is fantastic - the continental breakfast has a good selection and is a big area so you're not tripping over people or fighting for a table. The manager's social during the week is a nice touch as well. Would definitely stay again.

Thanks for staying with us! Our Manager's social is a great amenity that we are glad to offer. Not having to worry about getting dinner Monday-Thursday is a big convenience for a lot of our guests. When the hotel was designed, one of the first things that was thought of was the open, spacious breakfast area. While some people enjoy taking the breakfast up to their room, having to because there isn't enough room isn't something we wanted our guests to experience. We hope to see you again soon! -- Nick Hamilton, Operations Manager

Great place to stay... Family friendly and awesome pool area for the kids. Great service and excellent management. Hopefully they admit pets soon! Not the cheapest but keep an eye open for sales. Five minutes away from the shopping area by car so it's nice and quiet.

I am currently staying in this hotel with my family. This hotel definitely pulls out all the extras for its guests. There is no doubt that their main objective is to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I'm pretty picky when it comes to accommodations, so this praise doesn't come often! Here are the pros: In room: the 2 queen beds are very comfortable, as are the pillows. To make the room even more homey; they have also added throw pillows to each bed and the sofa bed. The room comes with free wifi, a dresser, desk, table/chairs and coffee table. The bathroom comes fully equipped with extras such as a special face cloth for makeup removal; higher end shampoo/cream rinse and Q-tips. The shower has 3 adjustments. The hotel also offers a great free breakfast from 7-9 am which includes pretty much every breakfast item you could imagine. Monday -Thursday, 4-6 pm the hotel offers free Happy Hour which includes free adult beverages and fantastic pre-dinner snacks (tonight we had a Bud-Light/White Zinfandel with soft or hard tacos; fruit plate/ vegetable plate, plus extras). The games room includes free air-hockey; foosball; numerous board games, xbox and games; free in-room movies; library and tables to play games. The pool area is wonderful. It has a smaller size pool - 3' - 4' deep and an equal in size hot tub. Both have beautiful underwater coloured lights. In this area they have included a shower, water fountain, numerous balls/basketball net; and a device to assist those with disabilities into both the hot tub and pool.

Overall, this hotel is new, in great shape and is a very good value. The staff are professional and pleasant. The only negative I have (and it really is insignificant compared to the overall stay, is that housekeeping on the first night didn't put the new garbage bag in the can, and on the second night, they forgot to add a garbage bag. I also thought that it would have been nice if they changed the toilet paper roll instead of placing the new roll on the toilet.

Housekeeping will be the tipping point for this brand new hotel. If they can keep up on the quality control, they'll have a run-away success!!

The Expressway Suites of Grand Forks opened in the spring of 2014. It offers vary nice rooms at excellent prices, particularly for weekday stays. A special rate for those days combines with the daily breakfast buffet including waffles, sausage, eggs and more, Also on weekdays is a Manager's Social which includes a generous happy hour menu and beer or wine. Pool, hot tub, game room with foosball and air hockey, and a selection of free DVDs to check out. This is not a luxury stay, but it is an excellent value.
