Stanford for 2 weeks, suggestions for a place?

    So I'm going to visit SLAC for 2 weeks at the start of August and I was wondering if anyone happened to know some decent places for the 2 week stay? I'm probably mainly looking at motels/hotels but I don't know the area as well as some of you might. I'm working off $1k of grant money so that's a problem... although I know someone at SLAC that would room with me for the 2 weeks when he goes back up! So splitting the cost to a place is a nice option.... I just worry about getting a cheap motel and it turning out to be crumby and have to deal with it for 2 weeks...

    Any takers/suggestions? :D

    Some universities rent out the dorms for summer, not to just everyone but since you have a connection to the university you may qualify. You should check out that option.

    Edit: try this -

    Doesn't say they allow birds, though.

    I always stay at the Westin in Palo Alto, they allow pets, but it is a bit costly. The plus side is that its as close to Stanford U. as you can get. I would also suggest Lisab's idea.

    The SLAC Guest house is booked up for the time i need :(

    and dang, stupid PF wasn't insta-emailing me all these replies!

    We're looking at the Camino Inn and Suites but I'm not sure if its too far out to be needing to go to SLAC 5 days a week and having to live there for 2 weeks.
