There is not a lot of places to stay while visiting Clarksdale. The place has a lot of character. We stayed in one of the bins for three nights. We thought being a guest we would have gotten a discount on the cover charge to see the acts performing. I could have set on the porch and still enjoyed the... More

We had a great experience at the Schack up inn. Great staff, good food at their restaurant Rust and a cool schack. With this being said, this hotel might not be for everyone, its truly genuine and something out of the ordinary, but if you`re into five star hotels with luxury this aint for you! We loved everything about the... More

Stayed at Shack Up Inn several times. I highly recommend it. Shack Up is as advertised, not a fancy hotel, but a comfortable place to rest. Rust, a new addition, provides wonderful dinners. Delta donuts each morning are a local bonus.

We had a wonderful stay here: 10 of us in 5 shacks. After driving up from NOLA we had a great meal at the Rust restaurant by the shacks and a great night. We all wished we could have stayed longer, and most of our 6 teenage boys swore they'd be back. I recommend this highly, and advise allowing time... More

Second time to stay, this time with my son. We booked for 2 nights 2 shacks, Pinetop and Robert Clay. Both have 1 double and 1 single bed. Both have a piano which is nice if you have a pianoplayer in your party. The Robert Clay has a seperate kitchen with bar. Both great. The stay was marvelous, get a... More

The reason you go to a place like the Shack Up Inn is the Experience. Experience a little of what tenants lived like back in the day on the plantations. Experience the Blues! The Juke Joint Chapel is located in the RUST Restaurant and it's a great little place to see blues bands. The RUST Restaurant has amazing food. The... More

I have traveled the world and find it refreshing to find a lodging that has a theme that works. This is not elegant (thankfully) but it is memorable. The rooms have the charm of a family lake house but there is visual entertainment everywhere on the old cotton gin compound. Access to Clarksdale is a huge asset. The other guests... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way between Memphis and New Orleans, on a Saturday and Sunday night. We arrived in a huge rainstorm, and were greeted by a friendly check0in, We had a few beers in the bar (which is really cool), and chatted to some ladies from Memphis who were on a Tamale trail, who shared...

As many have wrote before me this place is like no other, we will surely return for another visit/stay. The staff was friendly and very informative, rooms are unique but are some of the cleanest I have experienced. The restaurant, Rust, is also located here and it is the best place to eat in town. We found out that they... More

I first stayed here in 2003 and had so much fun I was back later that same summer. Have now stayed several times each year, usually on my way to New Orleans. There is no other vacation spot quite like it and I highly recommend. I'll be back each year for quite some time, I'm quite sure. Much more fun... More
