Economy Inn
Ranked #18 of 24 Hotels in Bloomington
Reviewed 10 January 2011

I stayed in Bloomington for work back in November and I can't be more positive about the Economy Inn. After a misunderstanding on how long I was to stay (my fault) the management quickly offered to comp my room for the extra night that I stayed.

The room was exceptionally clean and there was free wifi, a microwave, and a small fridge. At a very good rate for the week it was a great value. This is a motel so if you are looking for something high class with room service and a great location with a quick walk to campus (south of town or about a 10 min drive to the heart of Bloomington) then this is not the place for you.

I would def. recommend this place to anyone!

Reviewed 3 April 2009

I have been staying at the Economy Inn for almost 3 months now while in town for some training and I must say it is much better than I first expected. When you first pull into the parking lot you think that it will be some roach motel that charges by the hour, but that is far from the case.
Don't expect 5 star accommodations, but you can't beat the bang for the buck here. The rooms aren't big, but are comfortable. They include a small fridge and microwave, approximately 60 channels of cable, desk space, and a couple of chairs. Coin laundry is available during limited hours, but bring your own quarters, as there is no dollar changer. The manager/owner here is great. He is more than willing to help you any way he can and work with you if there are any issues. They don't have a website so you will have to book your room over the phone.
Overall, if you are looking for high class accommodations with a spa, pool, and room service - look elsewhere. If you are looking for a low price and a decent room, this is the place to be.
