Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient location to downtown and area corporations
  • Upscale pool area with lounge chairs surrounded by trees
  • Funky rooms with bold design and flat-screen TVs
  • Business-friendly with free Wi-Fi and several conference rooms
  • Rooms include a work desk with ergonomic chair
  • Spacious fitness center with a variety of modern machines
  • Free breakfast, including hot items
  • Free parking and free shuttle service to companies in a 10-mile radius (weekdays)

Cons

  • Fitness center is in the dark basement
  • No on-site restaurant
  • Some complaints about furniture on wheels design

Bottom Line

The Hotel Avante is a renovated motel in Mountain View with a convenient location to downtown and area corporations. This 91-room hotel is particularly business-friendly, offering free Wi-Fi, conference rooms, and even executive toy boxes including items such as a Rubix cube. Quirky rooms are colorful and stylish, and feature furniture on wheels so guests can create an ideal workspace. Aside from movable furniture, room decor is masculine, with pops of color and bold striped rugs, along with large flat-screen TVs. This hotel offers many conveniences including free breakfast, a free weekday shuttle, and a small fitness center, but the one standout feature here is a nice outdoor pool complete with Jacuzzi and lounge chairs.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Along East El Camino Real in Mountain View

Located on one of the busier roads in Mountain View, the Avante Hotel is convenient for business travelers with several high-profile companies within a short driving distance. While the location lacks the small town charm of downtown's Castro Street, the hotel's amenities are appealing to business travelers.

Mountain View is located south of Palo Alto in Silicon Valley, and while it is home to the headquarters of several companies -- including Google, Intuit, and LinkedIn -- it also has a small town feel. The city was named for its beautiful views of the Santa Cruz Mountains that can be enjoyed throughout the city's 32 parks. A pedestrian-friendly city, Mountain View has a small downtown area centered around Castro Street. In the summer, these streets are often shut to traffic for festivals and parades. On Sundays, downtown hosts a farmer's market with local produce.

  • 31-minute drive to San Francisco International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to Castro Street
  • 6-minute drive to Google Inc. headquarters
  • 11-minute drive to Shoreline at Mountain View Park
  • 16-minute drive to Facebook Offices
  • 16-minute drive to SAP Labs
  • 22-minute drive to Stanford University
  • 46-minute drive to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz
  • 50-minute drive to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco
