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!

We arrived at the Shack Up Inn and it was rather busy there. In the few years since we last stayed there it has expanded quite a bit witbsome new shacks across the rail tracks. The place certainly feels more commercial, especially as they've replaced the doughnuts at breakfast with bagels.... One thing that is also different is that they've …
... council, when the case opened. Milam and Bryant were paid between $1500-$3500 to do the interview with Look Magazine. This interview was done in one of the offices of the defense attorneys. The author of the article had handwritten notes of one of the defense team. While much of the evidence is long gone and the official transcripts too, the gin fan was believed to have been used as ...
Another full day on the DME bus! First though, Marc Taylor and I set out a popular continental breakfast at Little Pink. As we head out, bus driver Beau squeezes us under a low overpass- nearly a '11foot8' moment!
Today we are dinking around rural Mississippi, making our way to lunch in Greenwood. I'm feeling my allergies, so I pop down to the pharmacy as well. ...
Departing Vicksburg, we rode Interstate 20 west into Louisiana. Our destination was Poverty Point National Monument, fifty miles northwest. Designated by Congress in 1988, Poverty Point is the only National Monument in the State of Louisiana. Dated between 1700 B.C. and 700 B.C., it's comprised of six concentric earthen ridges and several large mounds, the highest of which rises 70 feet above the plain. The outermost rings measure 3/4 mile in ...
... It’s as humid as anything I experienced teaching in the Gulf at Doomadgee in Queensland over the wet season. Sitting here typing this at 9pm the perspiration is dripping of me. Gael is in the State Park shower block where we are staying. The showers are air conditioned here. I think she will spend the night in there.
We entered Louisiana tonight and struggled to find a camp site for the first time. All down the West side of the US there was a Visitors Centre ...
