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 find a decent hotel in the downtown area. We go for GroundZero and the local museums. Good food is readily available.
