Reitz Union Hotel - UF Campus
Ranked #22 of 47 Hotels in Gainesville
Reviewed 16 November 2011

Go Gators! Husband and I graduated in '79 - have stayed here in the middle of campus in the best built sturdy construction campus motel. The room is almost sound proof, the continental breakfast is just steps away near the elevators in the morning, and it is always clean and inviting. It is near the heart of campus, so it is great for newbies...Our second daughter is graduating in May, 2012 and we have already booked the room, CANNOT WAIT - too bad there are only 35 rooms! If you need any information, just be sure to ask at the front desk that students are extremely friendly and informative. Walk to most campus functions from here!

Rooms are average, but the convienence of the location is superior. We stayed for preview weekend. Definately plan to stay again next time we stay overnight while our son attends UF. Felt safe. Clean room. Friendly staff. Surprisingly good selection of breakfast foods available, right down the hall from room.

Wonderful stay....great rooms...wonderful views of campus from some rooms. Personnel were wonderful. It is the perfect place to stay during Preview...you can walk to all the activities on campus. Continental breakfast was great. I highly recommend this property for any UF activities...the best. Especially liked central air conditioning quality.

Room Tip: ask for a view of campus

The rooms are very underwhelming, just plain and average. Electrical outlets were hard to find beyond the token lamp extension... Ended up sacrificing the alarm clock to charge my phone during my stay.

But, proximity on campus (short walk to stadiums) is the obvious benefit. Not sure its worth the price on Gator football weekends ($~300/night???), but convenience and not having to worry about on-campus parking is nice.

This hotel is right in the middle of campus and close to everything. Such a fun way to experience college life. Updated and clean rooms. Flat screen tv. The rooms are on the small side and the beds were doubles, not queens but this should not deter anyone. What a great place!

I was there with my son for preview and enjoyed riding the elevator down to the meetings! Morning breakfast practically right outside the door.

Room Tip: Looks like every room is a good room!
