The Ace's Single or Triple Basic Shared Rooms may just be the best deal in town -- for those who don't mind sharing a bathroom outside the room. Guests can stay at one of the city's hippest boutique hotels for less cash. Hotel highlights include a local, organic breakfast in the breakfast room, a great happy hour scene at the Clyde Common lobby bar, coffee at the Stumptown Café, and a great central location for exploring Portland on foot.
The Inn at Northrup Station offers great value, especially for families or groups. Its 70 spacious suites have sofa beds in the living area, and well-equipped kitchenettes with microwaves, dishwashers and mini-fridges (King Suites feature full kitchens). There is not much in the way of amenities, but the central location, solid freebies, and attractive rooftop terrace add to the value. Its rates may be similar to competitors such as Hotel deLuxe, but saving on food with meals in allows guests to get more for their money.
