“Great stay in a great city!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The views of campus are amazing. We had a corner room on the 6th floor looking the Swamp and Century Tower - awesome! The room was very clean with nice furniture, but a little small. There is a complimentary continental breakfast which was good, but a little limited on selection. They only had yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, coffee, tea & OJ. Will definitely return.

We stayed for 2 nights this past weekend to attend a Florida Men's Basketball Game. We had a Deluxe Guest Room with 2 queen beds. The room was clean and spacious. We were able to walk to most anywhere on campus. Parking in the attached garage was included in the room rate. The complimentary breakfast consisted of bagels, cereal, oatmeal, juices, and coffee. Perfectly fine for our needs. Our only disappointment was that there were very few places open on the weekend to eat at the Reitz Union. The Starbucks was closed the entire time we were there.

Recently visited UF campus and were recommended the Reitz Union Hotel, which turned out to be an excellent choice. Room was clean and spacious and overall extremely comfortable. Balcony with chairs and table. Excellent continental style breakfast with good choice of cereal, bagels, pastries etc. Friendly staff.

My colleague and I stayed here while visiting UF on business. Front of house staff were very helpful and we received a discount voucher for dining within the union. The room had a balcony meaning you could make the most of what the sunshine state does best. Room very clean and offered a nice variety of guest supplies. The complimentary breakfast was amazing and most tastes would be catered for.

The only minor (and it is a very minor) grumble was that there was some weird switching to the sockets to the room meaning if you switched the lights out she heading out, you couldn't charge things plugged into the sockets.

This hotel is a good All rounder and a great option if visiting University of Florida.

I have stayed many times at the Reitz Union Hotel but this was the first time in a suite. (room 620). For $119 the extra space and wrap around balcony was well worth the upgrade. All other rooms were booked and I really think I will pay the additional fee on my next visit for the value recieved.
The Union is my first preference to stay in town because:
-on-campus
-staff
-view
-well managed and maintained by UF Office of Student Affairs
-very safe

Room Tip: upgrade to a suite if possible Standard rooms 507,607,515 and 615 have great views Call hotel dire...

Nothing more convenient than staying here for a Campus visit. Other than that, no real reason to stay in this older hotel located in the middle of the student union building. Parking and access to the actual hotel area are both kind of annoying and convoluted. I was there on a special seminar rate but regular rate is a bit high in my opinion for an aging facility but again, you're paying for the convenience of being right in the heart of the University of Florida campus.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the football field - great view!

We loved the following things:

- location on the campus!
- very helpful and friendly staff
- clean and quite spacious
- small alligators in a lake just behind the hotel

we would love:
- more restaurants/coffee shops that are open in the morning during weekends. we understand that students on campus sleep in and do not need coffee shops to be open but guests surely would love that!
- better breakfast - it was really basic - no fruit, not very good coffee etc
