This is a great place to stay if you're going to a concert at the Doug Fir - probably not the best place to stay just for sleeping. Plenty of bars to walk to after the show and a lovely patio for byob drinking.
Actually it was kind of a crazy place, it’s an old motel converted into this weird hipster-loungey place. The doors were made out of chalkboards, there are free condoms and earplugs in every room, and speakers to plug your ipod into (this is a rare treasure - i wish more hotels would catch on to it). Still, it was more relaxed than i expected, given the hyper-stylized rooms and tattooed patrons.
The room itself was small, the bed was uncomfortable, but i loved the mod decor and the location. Just a short walk across the Burnside bridge to Saturday Market, Old Town, etc. Don't bother eating at the Doug Fir restaurant; there are much better restaurants nearby.
