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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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!...

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...

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...
