After only a Scottish drive, we arrived in our new home for the next two nights, Clarksdale. And was I excited, you bet your **** I was! I'm not sure at what point in my planning that I came across Clarksdale, I think it may have been whilst watching Stephen Fry's drive along the Mississippi, but the tiny town in the middle of nowhere in the Delta …

El8 stayed here on Jun 27, 2012 during their trip titled: North American summer - the USA & Canada in 93days.
The beds at the shack up inn was rather comfy and the itinerary went off piste that morning as I had a little bit of a lie in until 8.30! Once I'd got up I had a look for Dad through the four connecting doors in our 4 room shack and he was nowhere to be seen. It turns out he was talking to pretty much everyone that was staying there. He found out …
I'm pretty much up to date on this now as I'm in Clarksdale in my shack.
The drive down here was pretty uneventful but coming into Clarksdale was interesting as you could see how poor the area was. Like Memphis the place is extremely run down. We stopped for petrol at the crossroads and I felt extremely uncomfortable about spending $130 …
How has this b&b rated in the past?
I'm a musician and totally loved being offered a complimentary acoustic guitar to thrash about whilst chilling on my shack's balcony...nice touch!
As their website states, their shacks are real shacks and so they look and smell like real shacks. Ours wasn't offensively dirty or anything but if you're more partial to Choice Hotels' type places then brace yourself a little! It's a great experience though,
Our shack had a TV but it only played one radio station (not sure what the deal was but didn't care, no TV for 2 nights wasn't a deal breaker for me). There was a very comfy king sized bed in our shack (Office Shack) along with an air con unit, a fridge & a microwave. Their on site bar is awesome with a performance area for guitar clubs etc. that use the place for learning (beers were VERY reasonably priced btw and a good selection too).
They have just coffee and doughnuts for breakfast (complimentary but first-come-first-serve basis).
If you like photography then you'll take plenty of pics of this fairly substantial & quaint premises and if you like cats then you'll love the several personable kitties that roam about the place.
It's a 5-10min drive out of town, BUT, if you wanna go into town of an evening to have a drink and listen to some live blues, then Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club offers a handy limousine shuttle to and fro the club (fee was discretionary for us but the going tip is $5 per person each way, arrange with a member of staff at the hotel). There are a couple of taxis too but they're more expensive and probably less fun!
If going back to Clarksdale I'd stay here again without question!
