This place is a flashback to the late 60's. Lived through it once and wasn't prepared for what we found. Yes, Gram's Place is like visit to Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love. It is a friendly, somewhat cluttered place and makes you feel a little like you are visiting your very distant and slightly pickled uncle... the one with the good intentions and low drive. In the "cottage" where the Blues Room is located, there is no central air so the entire place has that damp & musty smell that goes with authentic "Old Florida Living". In our room however, the AC kept it dried out and less aromatic. The beds were comfortable, the room clean & sparse. Towels clean yet stained as if someone had used them while dying their hair. Not surprising given the motto... "Relax, They'll never find you here."
The big plus was the 2nd egress from the bathroom led directly to the laundry area. Two washers & two dryers. $5 for a complete load (washed & dried). We did our laundry at midnight without a qualm. Just throw your money in the jar before you leave.
If you are short on cash & long on adventurous spirit and NOT traveling with kids. I would say give it a go. If you are at all prissy or staid.. go elsewhere ... you won't be happy at Gram's Place. Private room & bath $67/ night. We stayed for two.
