Hotel Avante was chosen by our nephew and his fiancee as the "wedding hotel" for their wedding in Mountain View in mid-August. Our family of 8 adults and 3 children booked three rooms here for 4 nights and felt as if we were at home. The front desk staff were all pleasant and accommodating to any need we might have... More

We spent one night in the hotel in August 2014. The rooms are quite small, but very clean and well equipped. The staff were very friendly & helpful, especially Kyle (I think?) who gave us a free late check-out on our room and supplied us with a list of taxi numbers when we told him we were heading out.

I stayed here before a visit to Google using the Google rate and it was by far the cheapest hotel in the area. The rooms were clean, well equipped and plenty quiet. For the money, it's hard to find a complaint here. Spa water and fresh coffee in the lobby, walking distance to a few restaurants, and only a few... More

The staff is wonderful - very helpful, tried to always address you by name, notes and candy from housekeeping. The hotel decor is a little dark for my taste, but it was modern and clean. The room was quiet - even though I faced the El Camino Real. With the window closed, I could not hear a thing. The workout... More

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.

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.
