5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2004

Gram's Place is owned by Mark, but it's dedicated to the late Gram Parsons. Mark has taken two adjoining houses and melded them into a wonderful, fantabulous place to stay. From the rooftop observation deck, to the hand poured outdoor hot tub, the British style outdoor phone booth, the outdoor shower and toilet and the list goes on. Rooms with private or shared bath are music themed (Jazz, Rock n Roll, Blues, etc.) and the clock radios tune in the low power FM station attached to the 400 CD jukebox. The outdoor bar is just what the doctor ordered, but I think it's strictly BYOB... A stay at Gram's Place is a break away from the bland cookie cutter hotel and motel rooms in the area and offer a refreshing break for the soul.

We have stayed at Gram's twice and have driven over and visited many more times.I love Gram's and love Mark, the owner, and the kitties Miss Janita and Miss Piggy (she matches her name)... it is a cool little place that not all would love. It is an "oasis". Basically Mark started buying houses and turning them into his idea of heaven. Has a hot tub, a "train depot", a tree fort (that we slept in one weekend), great music and some of the best conversations I have had in my adult years have been there.It is in a transitional neighborhood, but I have never felt anything but loved and safe while staying there. I believe that the neighbors like Gram's because it brings in great people.There isn't really breakfast, muffins are provided, but there is an old time, origional, greek owned diner up the road where you get the best meal ever for $5.It isn't the Ritz, but it is a terrific place with TONS of character. The rooms were clean too. Otherwise I wouldn't go back.My husband and I go by and share a beer with the cats on occasion.If you like Key West, Amsterdam or Montreal, you'll love Gram's!
