We wanted to spend a weekend at Lake Monroe. I found Economy Inn on TA and decided that all the positive reviews couldn't be wrong. The price was definitely right because we didn't plan to spend our time at a hotel, but on the lake. I called to make reservations and the phone was answered by a guy who was... More

We found this place on-line and it was just how past visitors described it. Not fancy, but clean. Two double beds, TV, microwave, frig. and a updated bathroom. We were greeted by the friendly and helpful staff member, given a real key and found a good room for a good price. Would stay again.

We took a spur of the moment trip to Bloomington and a friend found this place for us. Clean, inexpensive, and the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER! From the night before when I reserved the room to the reception we received when we go there we've never had a "Host" like the owner of this place. If I'm ever in Bloomington... More

Nothing fancy, this is a comfortable place to spend the night at an affordable price. The room came with two double beds -- and at a lower price than other budget suites/hotels charge for one bed. Also, the management is happy to help you in any way that it can. One caveat: The night we stayed they had run out... More

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 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.
