A great little hotel
We always enjoy staying at the Avante Hotel in Mountain View, CA. The hotel itself is not too large, the rooms are well appointed and comfortable, and the staff friendly. Sometimes the bed is a little too soft for our taste, which explains the "dings". We do, however, appreciate the ability to turn off the heater at night, since we prefer to sleep in a colder room than most. The breakfast is another reason for our hotel loyalty.

Very Good8.0
The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is not in the best condition but was the most reasonably priced option while I was in Palo Alto. The pictures on the website are much nicer than the actual rooms/hotel. It was moderately clean and comfortable but was a basic hotel. If you can get a good price, it's worth it. It's in a good area and only a short drive to Palo Alto.
