No sign of Travelzoo "Extras": wine, water, etc. if you promote, you need to educate your property managers.

I enjoyed so many things about my recent stay at Hotel Avante: the pleasurable front desk service, the modern design, the complimentary 24 hour wifi, the TV channel options, the variety of amenities from the bathroom, the very comfortable bedding, and the complimentary breakfast. The pool area also looked very relaxing!

Everything! Our room was super spacious, with so much room to settle in - definitely a comfortable place to stay. We loved all the 'extras' - refrigerator, coffee maker, large flat-screen tv, bottle of wine and 2 bottles of water, premium toiletries, towels, bathrobes, the light fixtures and all the 'techie' touches!

We would like to commend the many staff members at the front desk for all the help they provided, especially with advice on our travels to the Monterey Bay area and also the assistance with parking for our motorcycles. Every person we talked to was super pleasant and really made us feel special - thanks!
