“Felt just like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful 2-night stay at 12 South Inn. We stayed in the Queen Suite and couldn't have been happier. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the suite was cozy and felt very private and the location was perfect for us. 12 South is a very cool neighborhood, with special and interesting shops, bars and coffeehouses all in walking distance from the b&b. John was a warm and welcoming host who made sure we had every thing we needed as well as giving us some great recommendations for places to go in Nashville and a little of the neighborhood's history. We loved being able to have our morning coffee out on our own private little deck complete with porch swing. We absolutely recommend 12 South Inn and hope to come back!

My Husband & I live in Nashville & love to get away on what we call a "Staycation" so we book rooms in hotel & B&B's around town on special occasions like our birthdays or nights that our daughter has a sleep away with friends. We had a friend reefer us to this inn that was the perfect fit for what like.. Not only was it within walking distance to some of our favorite restaurants & coffee bars....It was so clean & quiet. From the soft cotton lining on the big fluffy bed,to the well furnished suite.....it was just so comfy & cozy I didn't want to leave! I can't decide what was my favorite feature of our suite...., The private porch with padded chairs & pillows or the big tub in the bath with the thick towels! (They even had a corkscrew & wine glasses!)
.It's so nice to stay in a beautiful place that has all the touches of home. I highly recommend this place of peace & comfort to any & all travelers. Keep up the good work inn keepers!

This is a "suite" (and I use that word loosely) that is in an old house that has 2 full-time residents above you. Since the floors creek and the walls are paper thin, there is very little privacy! There is an old musty odor that permeates the room. Also, there is a lock on the thermostat!! You do not even have the ability to control the temp! We froze to death! The "luxurious" bathroom is do-it-yourself handyman work at best!

12southinn, Owner at 12 South Inn Suites, responded to this review, April 15, 2013
Having been open for 16 month, and had 175 guests stay with us, and now have a total of 24 reviews. We knew sooner or later we would get a negative review. The most unfortunate part of this negative review , is the fact that this reviewer never gave us the opportunity to address any of his or her issues. As anyone can see from our previous reviews, no one has ever mentioned, or had any complaints about the issues noted, in this review. As part of the check-in process, the guest is informed of the fact that we are available for “any” problems or questions that may arise, but these guests choose not to communicate with us at all!! The thermostat is set at 68*F, in the winter months and 72*F, in the summer months. For someone to say they “froze to death”, is to say the least, a total exaggeration. If you are that cold, one would think you would notify the management, so they can take the appropriate action to remedy the situation. As for the other issues mentioned in this review, the Inn was constructed in 1929, with extra infrastructure to handle multiple occupants. In addition, it was constructed when a 2 x 4 actually measured 2” X 4”. The walls are actually lath plaster, which is 1” thick, with ½” drywall over that. So the assertion that the walls are “paper thin”, again, has no validation. We are aware of the fact that you cannot please everybody all the time. We have, since we have been open, asked for reviews, so that we can know what we are doing wrong, and what we are doing right. This review however was in no way constructive, it was totally negative in every way, which in our opinion, and according to all the rest of our reviews, unjustified!!!

Really a great place. We stayed in the King suite-the bed and linens were fantastic. The neighborhood is quiet and very cool, and it was a short walk to 12 South restaurants and bars, and the Gulch and downtown were very close and easy to drive to. Breakfast is continental-nothing great, but coffee was excellent. We were there three nights and definitely plan to be back.What a great first trip to Nashville!

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Quiet and private, but very spacious. We stayed in the King Suite, and it felt like our own little home. The bathroom is huge and the bed is absolute heaven. All the breakfast pastries and snacks were a delight. The location was terrific--within walking distance to some really great restaurants and shops! I cannot wait to come back to Nashville so I can stay here again!

This is such a great place to stay in such a great town. It is in a really nice district, but away from the tourist mad area of downtown. There is an easy bus ride into downtown from 12 south st around the corner and access to other Nashville highlights a short drive away. One tip is to try to arrive in the day as there are no indicators that the house is a B&B and we struggled to find it in the dark.

Double ditto on the favorable comments. Out of the way yet convenient to everything.
We loved the accommodations, the Station Inn, and the 12 South Tap Room.
Tips - Famous Dave's BBQ near the Hermitage; Cheesecake Factory in Green Hills Mall.
