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

If you're heading to UF for something other than graduation or a football game, then you really need to stay at Reitz. Would be great for those events, but i'm sure prices are triple and rooms nearly impossible to get. But during the week, it was a great location in the heart of campus. Decent sized room and balcony overlooking... More

I have stayed at the Reitz Union hotel numerous times over the years as I visit campus twice a year. I have always found the hotel to be comfortable, clean, and extremely convenient as it's located in the student union in the center of campus. The hotel occupies the top two floors of the Union and is managed by the... More

I am a distance learning student at the University of Florida & was on campus for 3 days to take my final exams for my masters degree. I chose to stay at the Reitz Union Hotel for two reasons. First, it was centrally located on campus and second, it was the cheapest hotel in the area when you take into... More

Convenient place to stay when visiting UF. The rooms are small but very clean. The front desk staff was very helpful and the housekeeping did a great job. The balcony offers a nice view of the campus. Would stay here again.

Arrived with family before midnight for preview day tomorrow. We reserved with 3 weeks in advance as per location. Homongous roaches in room and bath. Front desk (student attendance) called manager (Chris), best that they can do is refund our money as no more rooms available. Unable to find us another hotel in UF area (that we have to pay)....

We regret that the guest found a bug in the room. I received a call at 12:45 that night from our building manager to discuss the incident with the guest. The building manager had offered to go to the room and the guest declined saying that they wanted to switch rooms. The hotel was full at the time so the... More

The fact that this hotel is located in the middle of UF's campus is both good and bad news. It's good news because you can easily walk to any building on campus. It's bad news because trying to check in and the parking situation is a nightmare. There's very limited parking in front of the hotel for check in. I... More
