Loved staying at Hooker Hotel.

It has it all
My husband and friend stayed here and it was the highlight of their trip. They had everything they needed, were comfortable like being at home, and the decor was so fun. My non-decorator husband now has ides to redo his man cave. They loved this town and Hooker Hotel was a fabulous experience.
Great Blues Theme Lodging
Exceeded expectations in this comfortable, slightly quirky, blues themed lodging that paired perfectly with the reason for visiting Clarksdale .... The Blues
First night got off to a rocky start the ac was not working but contacted John and he took care of it in a timely manner. Limo had a flat tire to go to the Ground Zero Club but the walk is easy and fun. You get to see so much more. Overall my friends , spouse and I had a blast. Love the vibes everywhere from the Hooker Hotel where we stayed to Hambone. Will visit soon.
Full of character
We stayed for 1 night (2 couples) and were taken with the 'shabby' decor and the atmosphere in the property. Full marks to the owner.
The welcome beers and water were a nice touch. The beds were comfy.
The only issue we had was that the water in the property ran out while the fourth member of the group was trying to shower (me). There was nothing left to even boil a kettle.
Otherwise, we had a great time there, as it was a short walk to the Blues Museum, Ground Zero Club in the evening and the diner around the corner for breakfast.
We are thrilled that you enjoyed you stay at the Hooker Hotel, and that you loved the comfy beds, our extensive Mississippi Delta art collection, and location. We are on City water and the entire City water network downtown experienced an interruption in service due to a main water line break. Luckily the water interruption only lasted 20 minutes, but we are sorry it effected you. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
