Our company booked me and my business colleagues into this hotel. I've traveled to this area many times over many years but never stayed at Avante. The reviews seems reasonable. What a nice surprise. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are modern and very functional (outlets on the night stand and desk - things like that). Bathrooms are nice. Big... More

Room was very nice with plenty of room to spread out. Bed very comfortable. Not much of a view, just the car park and main road. Pleasant welcome and more than adequate breakfast. There's a hotel next door if you fancy a cool beer or two! Really well placed for Palo Alto and Silicon Valley

I have stayed here twice and will return. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive but definitely good value. The staff are always kind and polite, the complimentary breakfast starts early and is of good quality and the location is good. The drink reception in the early evenings is a nice touch.

5 day stay visiting family and it was a pleasant experience. First, the rooms are clean and spactious. Front desk was friendly and made sure my stay was what i needed it to be. Food in the am was hot and serviceable. Pool was clean a great addition to relax. Fruit water all day and I'd come back.

Stayed here for seven nights when relocating to the Bay Area for work. We chose it because of the convenient location for looking at real estate on the peninsula.

From the outside it doesn't look like much but the rooms are updated, clean, and comfortable. Upon arrival Michelle at the front desk was very helpful in getting me checked in. I had a small accommodation request which she took very seriously and went over and beyond to make sure I was comfortable. I would stay here again.

My first contact with the hotel staff was fantastic. I needed to get some afternoon sleep on the day I checked in, so before I arrived, I called ahead to see if they could let me check in before the allotted 4:00 PM time.
