Funky cool place in best location

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying here and it could not have been better. John is so easy to communicate with and his place is PERFECT. He has thought of everything to make the place comfortable and has stocked or with everything you might need, even 4-cold local beers waiting for you in the fridge.

Clean, comfy beds and quiet. We hope to be back soon!

The Hooker Hotel is full of fun and in the middle of everything Clarksdale!

We look forward to our stays in Clarksdale and the stay at the Hooker Hotel was excellent! Situated in the middle of Clarksdale allows for walking access to all entertainment and food venues. We have stayed at all 3 Clarksdale properties and the Hooker has comfort, convence and adventure. Looking for something different, exciting and in the middle of what's happening? You better book a weekend at the Hooker Hotel!

Clean

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well kept. Everything works as expected. Lights tend to dim a bit when the air conditioner cones on and stays that way until it it goes back off. Other than that I would give it 5 stars.

Very convinent to downtown activities and great eating places.

Owner's Response: Audie, Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Hooker Hotel. Not sure what to say about the lights comment as this is a new one for us. The Hooker Hotel has a central heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system vs room units so we have different electrical power (and circuits) for the HVAC then for the lighting system. We will look into it though. We take great pride in providing very clean and well kept guest suites (we utilize professional housekeepers). Also, thank you for the mention of our locations' convenience to downtown activities and great eating places. Hope you are able to return again real soon. Best, John Magnusson

“Loved Clarksdale, but was in love with the Hooker hotel... You could have spent the whole trip just looking around the place. There was so much to see and be amazed by ... The little touches like the water and a cold beer on arrival was great and was nice to actually meet the owner who gave us great tips , we had a great night at ground zero, then next morning popped into yaZoo pass great breakfast and then had a lovely stroll around town . Great lil place to stay travelling up to Nashville will definitely be recommending ”

The Hooker Hotel is wonderfully eclectic and celebrates the life and contribution of John Lee Hooker

  • 5 of 5

The bed, linens, shower and in-room accommodations were top-rate. The visual delight of the fixtures, paint and wall coverings were amazing. The information John provided on restaurants and juke joints were very helpful. I plan to come again and bring more friends to share the experience.
