2455 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, CA 94306
This is the closest motel near Stanford University on El Camino Real. I stayed one night as had interview on campus next morning. Walking or easy biking distance to campus. Motel parking available, restaurants and bakery 50 ft from motel. Area quiet, service was great, room very clean, small kitchen with refrigerator, flat screen television, pool. Would definitely recommend for short term stay, longer stay you may want added amenities such as larger pool, exercise room, on site dining, etc.
