Only managed to stay for one night in Sam Cookes room.
Zee is a fantastic host and makes you feel right at home .
Also an ideal location to walk around central Clarkesdale, if you're planning to visit the Juke joints of Ground Zero or Reds.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with friends
Thank Ade-the-great

Staying at the Riverside was the highlight of our trip exploring the blues trail in the Delta. Owner Zee greeted us with warm hugs and gave us a history of the hotel...from its use as a hospital for African-Americans (Bessie Smith died here) to her family's converting it to a hotel, frequented by many of the blues musicians passing through Clarksdale. While living here, Ike Turner wrote Rocket 88, considered the first rock and roll song. Sonny Boy Williamson also lived here in two rooms...one upstairs and one down because of his two girlfriends!

We stayed in the Muddy Waters room...with bathrooms down the hall. The hotel is immaculately clean and cared for. An experience not to be missed!!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of them...each one is full of blues history!

I am so glad we chose to stay with Zee in the Riverside Hotel. This place has so much history - it was amazing to stay a night there and hear all the stories. Zee is such a lovely hostess - she looked after us really well and made us feel right at home. I really highly recommend this wonderful, unique little hotel.

Provides all you need in a hotel plus all the history! It is a basic hotel as far as amenities, but provides so much more. If you need a 4-star hotel, then stay there but still stop by and visit Zee and learn something about Clarksdale. My wife and I were the only guests in the place when we stayed here in late April 2016, but that just meant more time to talk with Zee.

Room Tip: Cash only.

The place oozes character and very little imagination is required to sense its history. Zee was a great host, very helpful and always looking out for her guests. Sitting outside with her and her mum was a real highlight, and we'd recommend it in an instant.
