It was better than we expected and we have high expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. It's awesome. This laid back southern town is perfect for exploring on foot and retiring to the Hooker Hotel after was perfect. We were two couples traveling together and a little nervous about sharing a place (after driving 11 hours from Michigan) we didn't want to be on top of each other. Not a worry. Spacious and you couldn't hear from the other room.

It was nice having a kitchen and small living quarters. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Sorry we left without leaving an entry in the hotel's journal.

Clean, spacious, comfortable; a interior design perfect for the location. Spot on!!!

  • 5 of 5

As someone who has been in the hotel industry all of my working career, I was extremely impressed with this hotel, a one off creation of a very creative mind. I normally stay at well known, branded hotels like Marriott, Westin, Hilton. This was my first exception and I would definitely recommend the accomodation to anyone visiting the Clarksdale area. Whoever was the interior designer did a magnificent job of capturing the history of the area as a blues mecca.

Cool, comfortable and Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Hooker Hotel! Great comfortable beds made for an amazing needed sleep! The location is perfect for walking everywhere and what a cool joint! We didn't want to leave and so we stayed an extra night at the owners Delta Digs hotel room right next door and had such a great time! Clean and cool space for an extra special Clarksdale, MS stay! We'll be back!
