The good stuff first: The 5-Twelve is a nice old house in a great location, with a friendly, welcoming owner and staff. It's clean and well-appointed. We had a very pleasant 2-night stay there. But the air conditioning was cranked up way too high and the bed had definitely seen better days. Most disappointing was the much-vaunted Southern breakfast, which was good but nothing special: the only things that were homemade were the scrambled eggs, and the only Southern thing we saw was the cheese grits. Still, we'd return for sure -- despite the criticisms, it's worlds better than a cookie-cutter hote.
