I was told by multiple hiring folks that taking notes is not viewed positively. Its awkward all around.

He said a couple of the interviewers really liked it and felt that it made him look organized. Any reason not to do this? Will it make me stand out in a bad/weird way?

No; I think this is exactly what you should be doing. I'm using a similar system, where I clip my one-page firm cheat sheet to the requested materials for the firm. It allows me easy access to the prep work in the minutes leading up to the interview and then conveniently holds the materials afterward.
