My 20 year old daughter & I stayed at the Jupiter Hotel this past weekend. It was seemed the closest place near Float On which was a major part of our weekend. It felt like the actual structure of the hotel hadn't changed much since decades ago, but the rooms were updated for the modern, hipster IKEA crowd. Another review said something like if Super 8 and IKEA had a baby...yep, that's a fair assessment.
Front desk guys were friendly and helpful.
The chalkboard door was a lot of fun.
Close to everything.
Beds were comfortable.
The not so good:
It was noisy. We knew this going in, though, due to reviews. We had room 124 on the Chill Side. It was not noise from the Doug Fir that was loud, it was the people walking on the street outside our window, it was the people in the room above us, it was people a few rooms down. There are earplugs in the drawer so if you're a light sleeper, use them!
Parking: Only two actual spaces near the rooms. There is a parking lot across the street, however and and underground parking garage.
Heat in room: It was freezing in our room so once we figured out that that AC was also the heater we were good, but it had a weird smell and made some really loud noise if it ran too long.
Shower water temp: It was perfect, then super hot, the perfect, then freezing....repeat until end of shower. The water pressure was awesome for a hotel/motel, though.
Outlets on/under desk: Turn the lamps off with their individual switches, not the main room switch otherwise they don't work,
All in all, it was what I expected. I would absolutely stay there again. Just read the many reviews as most seem really accurate.
