If you have ever been to Gainesville you would know hotels around campus are few. The Hilton is over priced and the holiday inn is worn out so the union is your only choice without having to stay at the highway. The room is clean and bed comfortable. The furnishings are nice as well. The room smelled a little musty from age. My guess is the aging ac needs to be replaced. The bathroom while cleAn could use an overhaul . Stairs are an issue once you park. When parking in the garage you will have no choice but to use them. The patio is great. After all is there anything more wonderful for a gator then a view of the stadium or campus? If you think it would be great to be near the union food court for meals remember they operate on student hours. I'm currently sitting in my room at the union typing this because the Starbucks doesn't even open till noon.
