Feels Like Home Now

Pros: Spacious, comfortable rooms, free WiFi and parking.
Cons: The ultra modern bathroom sink, although quite lovely, is difficult for me to turn off completely. This may be just my personal problem!
Location: Close to downtown Mountain View (Castro Street), performing arts center, and Levi Stadium is fairly close.
My daughter lives in Mountain View, but without adequate room for me to visit so I choose to stay at the Avante when in town. It feels like home now and I always enjoy my mini-vacation. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with every convenience (including free WiFi), the staff is warm, friendly and helpful. I especially like the fruit-favored chilled water available in the lobby (along with tea and coffee). I look forward to my next visit.

Wonderful stay at this comfortable hotel

We will definitely stay again. The rates are reasonable, staff is friendly, breakfast was wonderful. Nice small touches like fruit flavored water and cute retro supplies in the desk in the room. This was great as we were traveling with a toddler at Christmas time and needed those supplies for keeping him busy and last minute tools for wrapping a present!
