Fun and Just Fine!

  • 5 of 5

Even before we saw the Hooker, we were fans: Unable to get through to Ground Zero for tickets for New Years, we asked John for help and he made it happen. We were "doing the Delta" with another couple and found the Hooker a funky delight. (BTW, we are "seniors" but not dead yet). On John's advice we also went to Reds, and ate at Yazoo up the block for breakfast and dinner -- delicious. The Delta is always on hard times, but it also lives on and on. A great experience. Thanks John! (BTW, tried to praise HH on Trip Advisor but it would not take a review)

Owner's Response: Hank, New Years weekend in Clarksdale is always a great time, and we are thrilled that you loved your stay at the Hooker Hotel. Sounds like you and your friends had a great time cruising the local music clubs; I'm glad we could get you into the sold out GZBC venue. Red's is always the place for a ripping, good time of real deal Delta Blues, dancing, and making new friends. Thank you for choosing to stay with us! Best, John

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!
