If you're looking for a cheap guest house in a perfect location for a cheap price, this is it. I stayed here for 3 nights in a double room with fan (250 baht/night). The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The only negative was super-thin walls (you can hear everything your neighbors are doing), but that's to be expected in all of these guesthouses. There's a really nice garden area out front with tables, chairs, a fountain, and a hammock area for lounging. They have great coffee (full French press for only 45 baht) and fruit shakes, but I didn't get the chance to try the food. The bathroom was shared but I have to say it was the cleanest bathroom I've seen at any guesthouse on my travels over the past two years. They did a great job of keeping the place sparkling which, to me, makes a huge difference. It's also conveniently located on soi 6, just a couple minutes walk from wherever you want to go in downtown Chiang Mai. The owner Mark (American) and his wife (Thai) are both really nice and helpful any questions we had about the area. We'll definitely be back to stay at Chok Dee again.
