    I've made an appointment to see Dr. Kaufman. Does anyone here have a recommendation of a good (preferably cheap) place to stay in his area? One of the places I was looking at came up on search as having bed bugs. :nervous:

    We stayed in the Super 8 on El Camino Real: Google Maps Link. It was the "cheapest" of the decent hotels. You won't find a clean hotel anywhere in that area for less than about $150 unless you get really lucky. I just looked at my budget from then (2016) and we paid $148 per night.

    I agree. I'm an Airbnb fan. Renting a room in a cottage or home with 4.5 stars with 45+ reviewers has not let me down yet.

    Personally, I'd stay in Santa Cruz, and drive the hour. I LOVE Santa Cruz.

    I also like Turo for cheap car rentals.

    We looked at a lot of Airbnb before we went. They were all more expensive than just a hotel. There’s no getting around the fact that mt. view is one of the most expensive places to live in the country. Stinks, but it’s a beautiful place that’s for sure.

    Def you can find cheaper accommodations using Air B N B, but you do have to know in advance that you're going. The cheaper rooms sell out fast.

    I'd say a nice room in the Mountain View area should go from about $90 to $160. A whole cabin or house to yourself will be more.

    I stayed in Sunnyvale which was a 10 minute Uber ride to the clinic. Prices in Sunnyvale were cheaper than Mountain View and fluctuate all the time. I'd advise keeping an eye on prices there and booking when they dip.

    I had a great experience staying here back in January when I was down there to see Dr. Chheda. It's a family owned place. http://paloaltocountryinn.com/ (also if you tell them your in town for medical care they will give you a discount)

    the room had a small refrigerator and microwave as well.

    Two years ago I stayed at a Motel 6 in Sunnyvale - it was nice for a Motel 6, very clean and the look had been updated. It was $99 a night then, I just checked and unfortunately the cost has gone up but is still one of the cheaper ones.

    Between OMI, being in hospital at El Camino, and an assessment at Stanford, I have been up there about seven times (none recently). We stayed in Mountainview, Sunnyvale, and Palo Alto and Sunnyvale is definitely the cheapest of the three. I'd really have to dig through old notes or receipts to find the info (some of which we lost to mold!) but @Isaiah 58:11 if you cannot find anything, let me know and I will try to find the info for you.
