the jupiter is a seedy motel renovated into a higher end seedy motel. this place is great if you are looking for an all night party and a one night stand with the guy in the room next door. The rooms are tiny, the bathrooms have not been updated from its motel days except for a new shower curtain and shower head, and i found some random hairs on the bed linens and in the shower.
The music from outside is loud (I was on the ground floor and it was louder being inside my room than outside), so if you will not be partying all night, this is not the place to stay. In the middle of the night a group of drunken guys from the bar tried to get into some of the ground floor rooms and when my door was locked, they loudly tagged the outside of the door with chalk (the doors are painted with chalk paint and writing on them with chalk is encouraged). I am a young traveler, but this place was not really my scene.
If you will be partying at the Doug Fir and want to pass out or hook up close by, this is the place for you (and your room comes with a jupiter hotel condom! safety first!). It is in a great location and the design is modern, but it was over priced and over hyped in my opinion.
