My sisters and I plan an annual trip each year and this year chose Nashville, TN mostly b/c one sister who ultimately couldn't come didn't want to fly anywhere. This Inn was perfect walking distance to boutiques and restaurants yet off the main drag. It was a short drive to Broadway where all the honky-tonks are located. This remodeled house... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at the 12 South Inn Suites and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet place to stay that is a bit off the beaten path. This felt like a B&B though with our own private entrance and porch (and no communal breakfast since we got ample gift cards to the delicious... More

We were looking for something off the beaten path to celebrate our 18th anniversary. We've had mixed experiences with B & B's before, but thanks to other reviews on Trip Advisor decided to give it a try. I'm SO glad we did! My top two things that made 12 South Inn Suites superior to other places was the privacy (you... More

We spent a night at the 12 South Inn & thoroughly enjoyed our stay! John is a SUPERB host! Very friendly and very helpful! The location is within SAFE walking distance to the restaurants and shops on 12th street. We returned at 10 in the evening and felt very comfortable. The room was large and well decorated. The bed was... More

12 South Inn Suites is the perfect place to stay when visiting Nashville. We stayed in one of the queen suites, the bed was comfortable, the decor was lovely and the area was very quiet. After exploring downtown Nashville it was so nice to come back and relax on the porch. Gift cards for the Frothy Monkey, which is within... More

We recently traveled to Nashville for a two-night getaway without kids. I looked downtown and found the hotels to be extremely pricey ($315+) on a non-event weekday. Knowing that we prefer clean and homey, rather than posh and exclusive, I decided to look at other options. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast, so the 12 South Inn... More

12 South is a delightful trip to a more relaxed time and place. This charming 4 suite property has been updated inside and is freshly redone. The beds are amazing, so comfy you won't want to get going in the morning! John, the helpful Innkeeper, provides tour tips and great coffee for you too! The rooms have small fridges stocked... More

The Inn was quaint and pristine and located in a fantastic neighborhood that was walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We loved the gift cards for breakfast at the Frothy Monkey, not only because they had delicious food, but also because we could go on our own schedule. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the Inn... More

12 South area is a wonderful place to stay outside of the downtown area. Lovely room. Fabulous privacy. Great idea to have gift cards for breakfast. Highly recommended. We stayed in the Junior King Suite and enjoyed the porch for our evening cocktails and first coffee of the morning.

This Inn is wonderful. The Innkeeper, a Mr. John Shenk was wonderful at informing me of all the perks of the area before our arrival, and then when we checked in he made sure we knew even more about the fantastic 12 South block of Nashville, along with giving us simple directions to downtown and other attractions, including great area...
