We stayed at the Ballard Inn/Hotel Ballard for three nights when sleeping with the windows open was necessary due to hot daytime temperatures. The bed was super-comfy, the shared bathrooms private, clean and plentiful, and the staff quite nice. However, the street noise was a problem. Our room was on a corner of the building, so our three windows overlooked an outdoor dining area for a pizza place, a gym that generated a lot of early-morning noise, and the neighborhood's main street. I can recommend the Ballard wholeheartedly--but only for very sound sleepers or people who don't mind using earplugs. And don't depend on the robes--the one in our room was almost child-sized.
