About University Inn at Emory

John and Bill Thibadeau planned to build The University Inn at Emory in the late 1960s. The Inn has been an integrated part of the Atlanta community since the Inn opened with twenty-six units in January of 1971. The family has continued to build new facilities as they purchased adjacent properties. The Inn’s buildings were renovated to create the 60 room accommodations which consist of 3 sets of buildings; the Main Inn, the Guest House and Oxford Hall.  

Each of the buildings at The University Inn at Emory has its own style in order to serve a wide variety of guest needs.

Near CDC, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, American Cancer Society and VA Hospital.

The University Inn has been a family affair since the beginning with John Thibadeau’s family managing since it opened. John Thibadeau's four sons now own the Inn.

  • Hi Shirley. I asked for you while we were there but they said that you were upstairs and I didn't want to be a bother. I wanted to thank you for helping us out when we made and changed (a couple of times) our reservations. The renovated rooms were amazing. We couldn't have asked  for more. It made the special occasion of our son's graduation even better. I'm almost sorry that he has graduated as it is unlikely that we will be back in the area. Although you never know. Thanks again. We will be sure to recommend you to anyone who may have a need.

Good decision to stay here!

  • We chose to stay at this smaller hotel instead of staying in a Midtown hotel for a wedding. Best decision ever! It's quaint and quite clean. The rooms are very spacious. Parking is convenient and free. The beds were comfortable and there was a small refrigerator and microwave which is a plus for us. Two small issues that were disappointing: the stairways between the 3 floors are metal and people going up and down them were noisy. But the noise wasn't an all night event. Also, the coffee urn in the lobby has a Starbucks label on it. I drink Starbucks every day, and this didn't taste anything like the coffee I drink every morning. 
    Besides those 2 small things, our stay was fine and I definitely would stay there again. It's better than the expensive and noisy hub-bub of midtown.

  • Found heaven at the Inn when tragedy in my family was the worst in my life at 70. The loving of Inn staff was tremendous. After 2 months at the Inn and still here they are still showing me love and support. I will not trade the most elite hotel in the world and I have travelled the world. This is my home. You cannot buy the love I have received here. The love of the inn staff is not is genuine. I believe the mission of the inn was my blessing and I will always stay here. Amen! Amen!
