I don't know what symptoms you had but I had intermittent issues starting my accord. After troubleshooting I determined it was the relay and not the starter itself. Changed it for $30, and never had a problem since. I would double check the relay myself. It's very easy to tell someone they need a new starter instead of just a relay.
To verify that your starter is dead, attach a wire to the positive lead on the starter (and the neg to ground) and check for voltage when you turn the key.
