Even better than the hotel itself is it's front desk staff! I can't say ENOUGH good things about ALL the people we encountered at the front desk here! Each person was helpful, friendly, courteous, professional and just plain NICE! But I especially appreciated one hotel employee, LORNA, who went out of her way to help us with several things! She...

We went to visit the University of Florida Campus and take a tour of the Universitiy. The location is perfect, the Hotel are floors 5 and 6 within the Reitz Union which is set in the center of campus. UF tours start at the Visitors Center which is located within the same complex, so it is the ideal location. The... More

Rooms and bathrooms are quite spacious. The view is disappointing as from most rooms one looks onto a roof. Everything in the hotel was functional, although the staff at the check-in desk (mostly students) not very friendly or accommodating. Looking at the overall experience, nothing to complain about, but nothing particularly charming either.

We went up to Gainesville the day before an appointment at the VA. The Reitz is in the center of campus and had plenty of parking. Campus book store was right down stairs as was the food court. We had a great dinner at Mark's Prime and a nice sleep and the Reitz. All the kids were polite and helpful!... More

I stayed here for 5 days during a visit to Shands hospital and it was a good choice. Price is reasonable, room is comfortable, clean sheets, probably similar to the holiday inn (from other holiday inns i've been to), but definitely not as fancy as the marriott by i75 (where i was last time). TV, coffee maker, mini fridge if... More

You cannot get a better location for all the things you want to do on campus at UF than the Reitz Union. It's in the center of the campus, very clean and spacious! They offer a complimentary breakfast as well. The suites have enough room for a family of 5. We did it and didn't feel cramped at all. The... More

We were at UF for a college tour and was excited to find a hotel right on campus. We got a good feel for the school and the amount of action. The front staff was friendly. The rooms were nice and the beds comfy. Don't go expecting 5 star. Location is key. Plus you have fast food dining options right... More

We stayed at the Reitz Union for the first several months ago as a surprise late Mother's Day trip. She attended UF many years ago but never had an opportunity to say here. I honestly wasn't expecting much being a campus hotel, and such a small one no less. But we were all pleasantly surprised as soon as we entered... More

For a business trip to University of Florida, I was put up at the Reitz Union Hotel. Overall I was thrilled with the convenience to campus, although accessing the parking lot was the most confusing thing ever. Liked: + FANTASTIC location at the UF student union, close to Engineering buildings, lots of dining on-site + Very quiet and secure (and... More

When I have to attend a meeting at UF, I call the Reitz Union Hotel first. I like the students at the front desk, so helpful and so professional and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. I usually can get one facing the stadium which is a nice view. The rooms are clean, the wireless is free and the... More
