This is the greatest place to stay, especially if you are on a Blues / History pilgrimage! You stay IN cool, historically cultural lodgings, and are very close to many sites of interest. The staff is like family and very helpful and friendly. I will return to Clarksdale, and I will never stay anywhere else!

Stayed for one night in the Cadillac Shack. Unique, rustic rooms/cabins at a very affordable price within a 10 minute drive from the town centre - my photographer girlfriend loved wandering around the rusty cars, signs, and other americana littered around the site. The staff were really warm and lovely. Free bagels for breakfast and pet friendly. Try to stay... More

I love staying at places that are owned locally. They have created something unique, fun and very creative. This place attracts great quality people. I enjoyed this far more than I expected. The Shack Up Inn is a hidden jewel. I will be back and I have already told all my friends. It is a great road trip from OKC.

Had a one night stay booked and after five minutes in the room went and extended for an extra night. Had the "other sky shack" and it was huge, two double rooms, two baths and lounge. Perfect for my wife and I, and late teenager. Looks like the whole place is falling apart and the run down look has most... More

The room was okay but there was nothing to do their local information in the rooms were totally out of date. They give information on restaurants they are either closed permanently or for the weekend. They have a restaurant on the grounds you would be lucky to get in without a reservation.

I've never seen anything like it, and neither have you unless you've visited. These folks , while preserving the past, have created an atmosphere with an artistic vision that will have you both mesmerized and dumbfounded. The Blues Is what helps it all make sense.

We had a great time at the Shack Up Inn. We were on a roadtrip and got the place recommended by friends. The experience by far exceeded our expectations. We loved our shack and the whole area. Sadly, we didn't get to attend any concerts in the local bar, which was a very nice place. Highly recommended if you are... More

On a motorcycle trip from Florida to Arkansas, my two fellow riders and I stopped here overnight and were delighted at the great evening we had. The 'Bin' rooms were clean and comfortable and the 'sharecropper shack' was roomy and full of character. We sat out on the verandah in the sunshine, then repaired to the main building to enjoy...

This is just a fun place to stay and enjoy some good blues music. We stayed in the Rich house this time with 3 other friends and had a great time. The place is clean but extremely not fancy. There are so many interesting things to look at with more redneck engineering than you could ever dream up. There might... More

This place is unique and must be seen to appreciate. It's renovated from an old delta cotton gin with share cropper houses, and looks rundown from the highway, but unbelievably clever once inside. Tons of antiques inside from old days long past. It has comfortable rooms, an interesting bar & restaurant area set in the old gin area, and spacious... More
