If you're looking for an exotic weekend abode with fountains in the foyer and 24-hour gourmet room service, this may not be for you. But if you're looking for a nice, clean place that's easy on the wallet, look no further. The manager, Jay, is one of the nicest people I've met in quite a while. His advice and encouragement...

I happed across Economy Inn by chance while spending the weekend in Bloomington, IN on business. The service is excellent. The rooms are clean and quiet. I recommended Economy Inn to 6 of my friends after my first night.They stayed the second night and were pleased. By mistake I left a valuable piece of property in the room. I did... More

We were initially hesitant to book a room sight unseen, but based on all the great reviews we went ahead and booked. We were pleasantly surprised at what a nice place this is. The rooms are older, but clean, comfortable, and well maintained. It had a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, TV, spotless shower with great water pressure and plenty of hot water.... More

You need a place to stay...right? Not sure if it is a night, week...maybe you are relocating to the area like me and need a short term place until you find a house. This is a great value for your money. The rooms are clean, well maintained, comfortable to sleep in and suprisingly quiet for being so close to everything.... More

Owner/manager couldn't be more helpful. Clean rooms, quite spacious for economy sector, fridge, microwave, free coffee in office. TV etc. everything works and if there's anything you want just ask, nothing seems to be too much trouble for this super guy. Read previous comments too. He should run his own customer service school. Many of the big hotels could learn... More

The room was clean, great shower, the rate reasonable and the manager friendly and helpful. The location was not as close to the city as we would have liked but it was worth the distance driving. It's easy to miss as not right on the highway but don't miss this motel.

As I have stayed at a lot of super fancy hotels for business, I didn't know what to expect when I came across the Economy Inn located in Bloomington, Indiana. All of the hotels were booked in town, and I had to speak at an Indiana Univeristy Business Event, so I decided to stay here. I have never come across... More

I had stayed here before 2yrs ago. I found it by reading a good review about it at Tripadvisor. Still clean and quiet and I realize how much I wish all motel & hotel rooms came w/a microwave & minifridge like the rooms here do. I stayed during the heat of summer last time and my air-conditioning worked great. This... More

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... More

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.... More
