Really nice staff, clean, comfortable room. Didn’t like the IHOP, was FREEZING inside, was the only one there and still received cold, so, so food. Paid $1 for a snickers bar from the vending machine, it was pale, old chocolate, not edible.

Stayed here at the Avatar Hotel for the Redbox Bowl at Levi Stadium. Room was spacious and bed very comfortable. Nice location and within walking distance to the stadium and much cheaper than the Hilton & Hyatt. Also, nice that there is an IHOP connected to the property. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Can't wait to stay again

Pros: Room was incredible
Cons: A microwave in the room
Location: Located next to a stake house, attached to an I HOP and across from an Amusement Park... Need I say more. Many other options within short walk
From the moment I received a welcome email a few days from my stay, I knew it would be great! The Concierge text messages were also an added bonus. I even had a weird request of making sure the tub was washed clean with no residue, (I was washing a gown in the tub) and without question it was done. Before the end of this week, I plan on making reservations for a weekend next month.
