Shack Up Inn
Memphis, TN 38614
"The Ritz we ain't," boasts the Shack Up Inn's motto. Instead, this unique conglomeration of rehabbed sharecroppers' shotgun shacks and the newly reconfigured Cotton Gin Inn makes for one of the most unique boutique hotels in the Mid-South. Located in the cradle of the blues, Clarksdale, Mississippi - birthplace to John Lee Hooker, Ike Turner, Sam Cooke, and a wealth of others - the Shack Up Inn is part rural retreat, part historic getaway. Starting at $65 for the smaller shacks (or a "bin" in the former gin), rooms are a real bargain. Just be sure to make your reservation soon, as the Shack Up Inn stays booked throughout blues festival season and for most of the year.
