We stayed in the largest suite recently while attending an admitted student day. The location inside the student union was perfect and free parking was convenient too. The room was spacious with a separate bedroom with 2 double beds and a pull out sofa bed in the family room. There were plenty of little tables and chairs to sit and...

I spent one night at the Reitz Union Hotel. My rate was $89.00. I was attending a one day conference on the University of Florida campus. This hotel was perfect for my needs. It is located inside the J. Wayne Reitz Union, which is virtually in the center of campus. The Reception Desk is located on the ground floor. Their...

Being right in the middle of a huge sprawling campus is this hotel's best attribute. Otherwise, everything was more than adequate. We were only able to book the standard room. It was big enough but not spacious. Very clean and comfortable.

On the advice of a former student who works in the Reitz Union, I booked rooms there for a student conference. Very reasonable prices and we were in the perfect location. Parking was conveniently in the nearby garage. We were near the stadium too. My queen room was small but had a fabulous view and had everything I needed including...

Clean room, comfortable bedding, not so noisy A/C, most of all, location, location, location ! Complimentary continental breakfast and parking is definitely a plus. The hotel is currently under expansion and renovation, so access to balcony maybe restricted.

We have stayed at the Reitz Union Hotel a few times over the years while my daughter was attending the University of Florida. This current visit was graduation weekend, and we had a very enjoyable 2 nights at the Reitz Union Hotel. The rooms are very comfortable, and the staff are very friendly. It is right on campus, which makes...

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...

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,...
