We were here for two nights and I have no complaints. The room was refurbished and clean. The front desk stafff were friendly. There was no pool, etc., but this is a no frills and quite inexpensive place. The main areas of town are are easily walkable. Wifi was fine but we were close to the office.

Hard to honestly rate inexpensive motels, you need to know what to reasonably expect, for the price..a list Does NOT have: pool, coffeemaker, breakfast, room service.But DOES have:very clean rooms, great location, super mattress, clean linens, towels, great shower, refrigerator, microwave, polite staff...For the blues area of Clarksdale, a really nicely located place for a home base...literally one block away...

I was in town for Sunflower Blues Fest and stayed here after a bad experience at another hotel. One member of our group has stayed here a few times and recommended we stay here. About what you would expect for the price-no frills, a clean room, and a comfortable bed. I heard a sound engineer telling the owners that for...

The Uptown Motor Inn is very centrally located downtown. It's a traditional old style motel. We came for the Juke Joint Festival and you can easily walk to all the venues. Some of the rooms on the street side have been renovated. Newly painted and carpeted with fridge and TV. You can get free wifi if your room is close...

The room was clean and the owners were super polite. The location was handy as far as getting to and from work. It was super close to down town and any areas we needed to get as far as attractions. The area was safe and felt no reason for worrying about m vehicle or its contents. I left my grill...

I play music in Clarksdale about half a dozen times a year and the Uptown is the BEST location. It is also as cheap or cheaper than any other motel in Coahoma County. They have done lots of remodeling and they have very nice rooms for travellers . Most rooms have frig and microwave and they have always been clean...

This little motel is about as close to Ground Zero and one can get without actually staying in one of the apartments above G0. We had a group of four rooms, all on the Issaquena Street side as advised by someone who said the rooms had been renovated on that side, and all were very clean, had been freshly painted,...

We were pleasantly surprised when we asked to see a room prior to checking in. Our room was newly renovated, freshly painted walls, new carpets, comfortable beds. Whilst not offering little shampoos, tissues etc it is the cleanest place we have stayed in our 4 week tour and the staff were polite and helpful. Situated in a great location with...

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at the Shack Up Inn - so much so, that we needed an extra in Clarksdale to party. Unfortunately they were all booked up with a wedding so the search was on for somewhere else to stay. We spoke to the tourist office guys and they suggested this place as a cheap...

On w/e April 21, 2012 we checked into the Uptown and was very disappointed. It was dirty and in gross disrepair. They were very chintzy on the shampoo, number of towels, etc. The box springs should have been discarded 10 yrs ago. I would not board my dog there. This was our 3rd visit to Clarksdale and have yet to...
