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

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
