Great experience in the bedroom with two queen beds; everything was very clean and tidy. The staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast was included. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has to be on campus for a meeting or a game.

Possibly the best location if you want to stay at UF. Rooms are nice. Complimentary breakfast is more than enough. Very clean. Right in the student union so there's a lot to do. Prices are extremely competitive. Will stay there again.

The Reitz is not the Ritz - but few people that consider staying there expect it to be. I'd reserved a room with two queen beds, but there's no way these were queens. They were, however, comfortable. The room was a good size and gave us everything we needed... except for maybe electrical outlets. (They seem to recognize the shortage... More

The room, a Business Suite was old but clean and very large. The living room had a huge couch, tv, sink, & coffee maker. The bedroom had two full size beds. Overall, for an older hotel it was nicer than I expected. The beds were uncomfortable, especially for two people but it's all they had. I would stay here again,... More

I was quite surprised how nice the Reitz Union Hotel actually was. It was renovated not that long ago and I can tell you it was comfortable and nice. The particular room I stayed in was very large compared to normal hotel accommodations. The decor was pleasing. There was a refrigerator available in the room along with coffee and a... More

This was the perfect place to stay for a campus visit to UF. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Room rates were very reasonable. Being right on campus was super convenient. Add in the easy free parking and complimentary continental breakfast items, and what more could you ask? Hope there are rooms available for future visits, should my daughter become a... More

The 5th and 6th floor of the UF student union has hotel rooms for reasonable prices. You also get great parking and breakfast included in the price. We had an executive suite, which reminded me of an Embassy Suites style hotel room. The view wasn't great (would have loved to have a room that looked onto the swamp-but that is... More

We spent the last two nights in an executive suite at the Reitz Union Hotel. The desk staff, breakfast staff and housekeeping were all friendly and gave excellent service. You absolutely cannot beat this hotel for a visit to UF. Student tours, bookstore, many food choices, movies, bowling alley are all in the building. Accommodations are comfortable and clean.

It's been a few years since my last visit and I was hoping some of my last experience would not be repeated. While they have invested some money in refreshing the rooms to bring the more up to date, be prepared for the incovenience of construction. My biggest complaint is the difficulty in getting from parking to the hotel elevators.... More
