My coworker and I stayed for three nights while down for a conference in Palo Alto and we had a wonderful stay! Check in was quick and easy, and the room was just what I requested- a top floor, quiet room. While the room wasn't huge, it fit our needs perfectly with super comfortable beds and sweet notes and snacks... More

This is a boutique motel which served our purpose perfectly. Nice clean little room, quiet. Air conditioner was a little noisy. Nice breakfast in the AM. We like the way the hotel was decorated. Nice, accommodating staff.

I visited this hotel for business recently and really liked it. While the room was on the small side, it was well appointed, comfortable very clean and very quiet.

When I first walked into the lobby in San Jose, CA, I was not that impressed with the decor of the lobby. But then I experienced the very impressive service, the outstanding customer care and the attention to detail from all the employees at the Hotel. I was generously taken care of by all levels of the staff-from the Housekeeping... More

My girlfriend and I spent a couple of days in Napa, and then needed a place to spend a night near Cupertino, where we were attending a family function. I think price and location were the deciding factors in choosing Hotel Avante, in addition to it being a Joie de Vivre property. The place doesn’t look all that impressive from... More

The hotel is very clean. Staffs are very kind. Breakfast is excellent, there are many good foods. Moreover, the price is quite low. I strongly recommend this hotel in Mountain View. I will chose Avante in next trip.

I booked this as I had had a great stay at another Joie de Vivre hotel in Palm Springs so decided to try this one. I couldn't recommend enough. The rooms are spacious and clean whilst being quirky and a little different. There is a comprehensive free breakfast in the morning which was good as well. The service was good,... More

I really liked this hotel. I was attending a conference at Stanford all week, and had a hard time finding an affordable hotel in the area. While the prices are steep in Silicon Valley and this hotel is no exception, it is a very well-run place. My room was very clean and quiet, especially considering it overlooked El Camino Real,...
