When I arrived, I was greeted with a smile, and given a great recommendation for dinner. The rooms are really clean, the bed was comfy, and there was some cute desk decor - what more can you ask for?! :)

What more could we ask for too! You took the time to post this fabulous review and gave us 5 stars. I hope your dinner was fantastic, there are a lot of great places to eat in Mountain View. So glad you like the cute decor, it's our little tongue in check about old school tech vs. new school tech!... More

This is a hotel right on a busy section of a main road, right next to a freeway. Everything you need is within walking distance. If you work Silicon Valley, everything you need is here. There is no noise in the room. The counter staff are amazing. For example, Darko on night staff gives new meaning to the word "hospitality".... More

This was a return visit to Avante and we really enjoyed our stay as we had expected to. The room was pleasant, the pool well-kept, the front desk staff were particularly helpful with flight check-in etc. Coming in from the hot California sunshine, we found ourselves relaxing immediately we entered the lobby.

I frequently stay in the Bay Area, usually once a month, to see friends and family. The accommodation are perfect for my needs with the following amenities that I really enjoy... Pool/hot tub, free breakfast, and the friendliest staff. Nermine has always shown such kindness and positivity over all of her guests. I will always choose to stay here first... More

Hello 8000miles, I'm glad to see you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Avante. Thank you for taking the time to post this great review. Good point about the pool.

I always enjoy going to this hotel. The front desk staff are incredible and ALWAYS make me feel welcome. The property is older, and there's nothing really fancy about it. I like it because it's quiet, clean and easy to park. They also have a nightly Happy Hour with beer and wine for free!! The morning breakfasts are great! The... More

Maybe it was because the night before we stayed at a terrible hotel but I truly enjoyed my stay at this one. We actually extended our stay one more night and just relaxed at the hotel and around the pool. The room was modern and included a small fridge.

From the get-go, the staff at Hotel Avante was exceptional. We were going to a wedding and just staying the evening but the staff went out of their way to ensure our short stay was smooth.
