We were there for the first time in Gainesville from Naples FL, exciting to get there for my son orientation in UF. Rooms are spacious, large clean bathroom. I like the accommodation because students are generous and everything is there in the building.

This is a hotel in the student center building at UF. It is clean and comfortable but not luxurious. But if you are coming to visit UF you are in the midst of it all and can walk to most major campus sights.

We stayed here with a group arriving by bicycle. Lacking secure bike storage, they helped us get our bikes into our rooms with the service elevator. The rooms were very dated, but comfortable and clean. The hotel is being renovated, so there is a great deal of noise and the balconies are locked. The breakfast was okay, but seriously lacking...

Very nice room! Confusing to find where to park and where to check in. Great place to stay if you are visiting the campus. Rooms are inside the student union. Also the book store is just down stairs and has a lot of nice merchandise.

Stayed at the Reitz Union while attending the UF vs. Miss. St. basketball game. Also to acclimate my children, ages 12 and 14, to the campus as it is their dream to attend college at the University of Florida. We found our stay to be awesome! Front Desk and all employees were super friendly and helpful. If you've stayed there... More

We recently stayed at the hotel while attending an Open House at the University. Our stay was pleasant. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We were given a complimentary parking pass as part of our stay. Being right on campus in the center of activity gave my son a true sense of what... More

The hotel was old but well kept except for the roaches in the food area on the floor and on the walls, not too appetizing when trying to each breakfast. As we started eating the roaches started climbing on the painting by the tables, so it made breakfast a little bad. The room accommodations were excellent and the Staff could... More

I stayed at the Reitz Union during a MBA Program at the University. The hotel is inside University of Florida, and classrooms were 5min walking distance. Garage is kinda weird but as long as you know how to get there, you're fine. Had some cockroaches on my balcony, but they never in my room. Beds are confortable, shower is nice... More

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
