We stayed in the Electric Blue with 2 lovely balconies, as in all review it sure is quirky and fun; however it was lacking in crockery and cutlery, 1 cup for four of us. The bathroom could have been cleaner, quirky is great but grubby is not. Beds are amazing, so comfortable. Staff are lovely and were very understanding when...

Stayed in the Biscuit Shack while passing through Clarkesdale! It was a Monday night so things were pretty quiet, but we were given a list of local restaurants that would be open at checkout! Can't wait to come back with some friends :)

If you go to Clarksdale, stay here. As others have noted, it's not glamorous, but sometimes it's good just to go low rent. There is an authenticity here--probably due to the location and its history as much as the shacks. If you can, get a shotgun shack or any room with a porch. That's part of the slow down, unwind...

Just a really unique place to chill along 61 in the Mississippi Bayou. Where else can you sleep among the cotton fields? We slept in one of the grain shacks and then in a cabin another time. They were both fine. Rustic but comfortable. We were close to town to listen to great Blues music-that is what the trip was...

We loved Shack Up Inn! They say "if you have to ask about the thread count of the sheets, then stay some place else!" (But, honestly, the sheets were way better than the much pricer hotel we stayed at the night before!). We spent two nights in the Robert Clay shack, and thought it was so unique, we planned our...

Was looking for a place to stay a couple of nights while in Clarksdale to listen to some Blues. I was tasked with finding the place. My wife and the other couple were apprehensive but it was only two nights so I said we are going for it. We were pleasantly surprised. This is a fun, unique, and somewhat quirky...

Great place to stay. We were in the Pinetop shack and it's in rough shape but there's nothing like sitting on the porch of a shotgun shack with the sun coming up strumming a guitar (they provided) to get ready to experience some blues history. Great access to Clarksdale and folks that run it were excellent. If I came back...

We stayed in the Sunset Shack for a night as part of our Delta Blues driving tour. This place is so relaxed and comfortable, it is like stepping back in time but with heat and air conditioning. It isn't a luxury accommodation by any stretch, but it is comforting in much the same way as your favorite pair of nearly...

After seeing the Shack Up Inn on an earlier visit to Clarksdale, we stayed here this time, in one of the Sky Shacks. Despite the "rustic" appearance, our room was immaculately clean, and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating. The laid back vibe was perfect for a relaxing weekend, and the live music on Saturday night was fantastic. Will definitely...

Cool concept on a "restored" cotton plantation on the outskirts of Clarksdale. Highly recommended for those looking for a stay very different from your average hotel. Room was clean and comfortable (we stayed in Bin #7 on the second floor - very quiet with a rustic feel). The website says "the ritz we ain't" and indeed the place is rough...
