I have been staying at the University Inn over the past four years while my son has been a student at Emory University, from the time we first brought him to school as a freshman. Each stay has been a wonderful one. The setting is lovely and the renovated rooms are a big plus. The staff are friendly and hospitable.... More

I recently stayed at the Inn for a business trip. Negatives:I was looking forward to the pool, which was closed for "cleaning" the whole time we were there, 1st room I was given was very old and had numerous stains on the furniture and carpet - felt icky just standing in the middle of the room. The bathroom fixtures were... More

We regret that your experience was not what you had hoped for. Our outdoor pool is open May 1 through October 1 and therefore not open during your dates of stay. Regarding the state of the rooms, you were in one of 5 rooms that have not yet been renovated and unfortunately we were sold out of the renovated rooms... More

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:... More

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... More

We stayed here to visit our granddaughter at Emory University. It is so convenient to the University literally across the road. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but our room was great. It was very large and seemed to have been recently renovated. I think it was room 225. The continental breakfast was limited but fine with good... More

This weekend, I stayed here for two nights. The positive: the rooms were absolutely gorgeous! The beds were comfortable and the heated lamp in the bathroom was definitely a plus! Also, downtown was 15 minutes away so the location was perfect! The negative: I had specifically asked for a first floor room because I'm pregnant but inconveniently ended up on... More

It is our policy that if a guest calls one time to complain about noise that we address that with those making the noise which we did. If a 2nd complaint is made we call the police to manage...

I booked one of the "renovated rooms" for my stay here last week and found the room to be modern and comfortable. Despite its high profile neighborhood, the University Inn is quite unpretentious and seems to be a welcome retreat. I had a friend in at the hospital, which was the main purpose of my visit. Upon my arrival, I... More

The hotel was very nice. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The room was recently renovated, it has a nice finish and very comfortable and spacious. We stayed in early January so the pool was closed but we sat next to it at one of the tables and it was very relaxing. We enjoyed the breakfast area with our Starbucks... More

I was quoted one price over the phone and then told a completely different, much higher rate once I arrived. I had to wait outside for 10 minutes before someone came to the door to check me in. During my wait I got to see a parade of cockroaches that were easily the largest cockroaches I've ever seen in the... More

Your comment is very important to us. We would like to apologize that you were not connected with management during your stay. I am assuming that you were not in a renovated room. We have put in a new wifi system that has addressed many of the issues of low wifi reception. As to the rate you paid we would... More

My wife and I had to go to the Hospital for her day surgery and decided upon the Inn to stay. the room was clean and the hospitality displayed to us was exceptional. the bathrooms were in good condition as compared to some higher priced hotels we have stayed at. all in all it was a great experience.
