We only had one day to spend at Gram's before moving on to another part of FL, and it happened to be the first truly swim-worthy day since Winter. We hung out with Bruce at the makeshift bar and he gave me the house Baby Taylor to strum away on with my feet dipped in the outdoor jacuzzi and borrowed... More

where to start....grams place is one of a kind. We heard about it through the lonely planet and the review prepared us for a quirky hostel......but quirky does not begin to describe this one of a kind experience. I would urge anyone, whether on a budget or not, to swing by grams place. The over all theme is music, but... More

Wonderful place to stay in Tampa. When you first drive up, it does not look like too much, but when you get through the front door a whole other world opens up. The rooms are fun and quirky and the conversation was great over beers and wine. Bruce is a gracious host and seems to truly care about his guests... More

This place is all you can ask for in an American hostel. It's not spotless, but it's definitely clean enough. American hostels as a whole are terrible, but this place feels like an actual hostel. You really feel like you are experiencing Tampa. Bruce, who now runs the place (the brother of the original owner), has put a lot of... More

My only regret about Gram's Place is that I arrived pretty late one night, and had to leave early the next morning ... so I missed out on all the legendary music that goes on there. The whole decor is really funky, and the other guests were friendly -- and seemed like they'd been staying there for a few days... More

I read all the reviews - but still was very excited about the hostel/hotel.... so I booked a room anyway. Then I received the automatic email confirmation saying my room was reserved for $60 a night- which is exactly what the website said. Then the next day- I recieved a non-automatic email from the gram's place manager saying that my... More

This "bed and breakfast/hostel" was a huge disappointment for my family of 4. We had booked the Country Room at Gram's Place for what we thought would be a fun and interesting alternative to the usual hotel room. I searched hard on line for a budget friendly decent place, and chose this based on good reviews. How anyone could give... More

A real treasure in the heart of Tampa. I was just amazed. I have never seen anything like it before. I was planning to stay at a nearby hotel but it was full. We were even thinking of driving to orlando when suddenly we found this place. It was just great! The atmosphere was just fantastic and very confortable. I... More

This is a B&B/hostel. Never stayed in a hostel before. So, a little suspiscious at first, but was very impressed. We got our private room with a private bath and shared a kitched with other rooms. It was very clean. The byob bar was very refreshing and very welcoming. People just hung out there, we had some good times there.... More
