It was another busy weekend in Ithaca, who knew, and we could not find a room anywhere. Yes the the Holiday Inn had a room in the old part for $220 for one night but I was not about to pay the price for a one night's sleep. Could not find a B&B either. What we did find was Economy Inn for $80 still had a room, I was very sceptical because of the phone call (hard to understand the owner as he was eastern Indian but he turner out to be very nice and very freindly), the name of the place and the cost (after all what do you get for a $80.00/night stay). Well as I said I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean, furniture was worn around the edges (but not broken, this is not the Hilton), the bed was comfortable (pillows sucked), the bathroom and shower (no tub) were small but very clean and updated, water for shower was very good and hot. There was even fairly new clean working small refrig and microwave at no extra charge, There was cable TV that work great and free WIFI. A little noisy since it is right off Hwy 13 but we did not find that to be a problem. For the cost I think this was a great place to stay if you are not looking for swimming pool, exercise room, and free breakfast and I would highly recommend it and would stay here again. I think that since previous reviews this hotel is under new management and has been painted and "updated". I have stayed in many chain hotels that had great ratings and cost twice that were as nice as this and many times not worth the money. Hope this helps you decide.
