We stayed in the Robert Clay cabin in the main compound for two nights. This was one of 10 hotels during our road trip of The Deep South and definitely our favourite. We LOVED this place and the idea. We felt it was priced well. The cabin was old and original but had modern facilities, it was spacious, clean, a...

Had a great time. This is a place everyone should go at least once. If you love it like I do you will go back. We plan to go back in June we had so much fun. Went to Rust Friday night for the band and then ate breakfast there the next morning.

This has the potential to be excellent, but I think we just got unlucky with how things worked out for us. Firstly, we paid twice as much as normal (we paid $140pn) because there was a jazz festival on. We werent going there for that, we just wanted the experience and actually the jazz festival had left this place by...

This has got to have been one of the highlights of our recent road trip round the Deep South states and it was a shame we were only there for one night. There is very little information on the website so you are not sure what exactly to expect. The place is a few miles from Clarksdale on the US-49....

we found everything about the place to be great, From location, staff and just overall vibe. When you drive in you just think wow and it carries on from there. We were fortunate that there was music gigs on the evenings we stayed and our stay in the sky shack allowed us a birds eye view. Truely memorable experience

Without doubt the best place I have ever stayed while on a road trip. Full of character - in a wonderful sense. Great staff as well. The rooms have everything you need - even a heated floor in the bathroom in my room! The Ritz, it ain't. A not to miss - it is.

Our cabin was comfortable and just as they described on their website. I felt it was clean enough and the bed was comfortable. Our cabin was in a more remote area from the rest of the property and it was very quiet. One problem that we encountered was that we checked in on a Friday and left on Sunday and...

We stayed in a grain bin turned cottage. Very charming and rustic, and when I say rustic I mean old. Our room was clean, but it comes with cobwebs and critters. It's part of the charm. And it is the South, after all. I got the best night of sleep there. It's really, really dark at night. I could see...

I knew what to expect staying here. We were prepped and ready to check out the lofty rooms. The idea behind staying here is to really immerse yourself in the Delta culture. If that's not something you're into, you might want to consider staying somewhere else. I stayed in the Robert Clay Shack and loved it. It was one of...

We stayed in the Electric Blue with 2 lovely balconies, as in all review it sure is quirky and fun; however it was lacking in crockery and cutlery, 1 cup for four of us. The bathroom could have been cleaner, quirky is great but grubby is not. Beds are amazing, so comfortable. Staff are lovely and were very understanding when...
