This was my first time at Hotel Avante and both my husband and I enjoyed our stay. It was the little touches that set this hotel apart for us. In the lobby and our room there were great throw back toys: yo-yos, etch-e-stetch, rubick's cubes, etc. PLUS the staff was delightful. We ere always met with a smile when we... More

We stayed here for two nights in early October for a wedding. This place was great! In short, the place was squeaky clean, provided a number of unique, awesome amenities, plenty of parking, and comfy beds. Free wi-fi! From the street, the hotel is unassuming and almost hidden. You would never know what a gem this place is! The front-desk... More

Hello SRay, It is so great when someone gets the funky, personal vibe of the hotel. Thank you for sharing and noticing the small things like the host profile. We feel if they get to know you and you them, then we are all better for it. I heard the wedding was wonderful and hope you enjoyed it. Take care,... More

I have stayed here many times recently. The staff is accommodating and friendly. The rooms are clean and if there is a problem it will be fixed pronto or they will get you a new room. The ambience is nice and the breakfast is ample. I will be back. 😊

Everything about my stay here was amazing. The staff is so kind and polite (everyone from the hotel lobby to the cleaning staff). I wanted to check in a little bit early and they did everything they could to accommodate for that. The facilities are beautiful. The room is top notch, and the pool/hot tub area is like a little...

I have clients in Silicon Valley and always stay at the Hotel Avante. They have a delightful property with AMAZING staff who remember you! Imagine that. They lobby is busy in the early evenings due to the wine and cheese they serve. The rooms are comfortable, amenities are high quality and the free breakfast is easy and fast. WiFi is... More

We stayed at Hotel Avante before a 49er game. Everyone we met was very friendly. The rooms were clean and the hot breakfast before our tailgate was a huge plus. It was a great value for the money. The air-conditioning was a little noisy during an October heat wave.

Hello ToBodlyGO, Thank you for the 5 star review and excellent comments. I hope you had a great time at the game and yes it was blistering hot that weekend. Who knew October could have 100 degree weather! Glad you enjoyed the breakfast and sorry the AC unit was a little loud. We look forward to seeing you again and... More

I always stay at Hotel Avante when I come to visit family in nearby Cupertino. It never disappoints. It's a little quirky in decor and furnishings which is nice change from anodyne corporate chains. The staff are friendly and responsive to any needs or queries. The free breakfast is a cut above the usual free breakfast offerings and includes real... More

We always book our rooms at the hotel whenever we attend concerts at The Shoreline Ampitheatre. The staff offers brilliant customer service (especially Kristin, Rocio, Emanuel, Brittany, and Ryan) every time we've stayed there.

Stayed for two nights, while attending the Keith Urban concert at Shoreline. A smaller hotel, but still nice rooms. The breakfast room was small, and the breakfast itself was basic, but included in the price. Parking was free too, as was the internet. The area didnt have too many good (american) restaurants though, mostly asian etc. The hotel was clean... More
