“Quiet, Private B&B in a Trendy Nashville Neighborhood”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

My husband and I stayed at 21 South Inn Suites for four nights in March 2014. John was there to greet us and show us to our suite with our own entrance. We stayed in the Jr King Suite. The suite was clean and comfortable and included a sitting area with a comfy chair, big screen TV, fireplace, small table and chairs and a desk with WiFi. The mini-refrigerator was stocked with OJ, water, yogurt and fresh fruit and was refreshed every couple days. There were also very good pastries and an excellent blend of coffee. We have stayed in many B&B's and 12 South allows the privacy to have breakfast at your leisure and by yourself. The location is ideal whether you want to walk to local businesses and park or drive short distances to many venues in downtown Nashville and the surrounding area. This B&B is a gem and highly recommended!!

We enjoyed booking online with ease. We had called another highly rated B&B and the proprietor never returned our call. John was a great host. The suite was very comfortable and we had consummate privacy throughout our 3 day stay. The breakfasts in room were refreshing. Highly recommend!

My fiance and I visited Nashville for New Years and stayed at the 12 South Inn suites. My first impression was that this was not the "normal" threadbare bed and breakfast. It is immaculate, the fixtures are updated and best of all, there is no group breakfast where you are required to socialize with a group of strangers! (sorry, but I like to sleep in and get to breakfast when I want). What they did have was a great fresh fruit salad, greek yogurt, orange juice and a heavy supply of water and coffee, a microwave and small fridge and pastries in your room. This did not get refreshed every day, nor did towels or linens, but John, the owner, was readily available to call for anything you might need and let us know when he planned to come by and refresh things. John greeted us warmly and filled us in on the local places to go. If you want a place that is absolutely spotlessly clean and private, I'd highly recommend 12 South Inn Suites. One thing to note, this is in a residential neighborhood, and there are things within walking distance but you will have to drive to get downtown, etc. Also, there is an occupied rented apartment on top of the suite we stayed in. You can hear the neighbors moving about above your head, but they are very quiet and we did not find this disturbing. The only reason we did not rate this a 5 is that you are unable to control your own thermostat in your room. It is locked and set to a temperature determined by John. If you ask, he will adjust it to a different set temperature quickly, but it was a just slightly irritating not to be able to do it yourself.

Pros: Spacious clean modern room (we stayed in the queen room), comfortable bed. The room has a small kitchen area with a fridge, microwave and basic utensils. I really liked the breakfast they provide in the room- a selection of pastries, a big bowl of fruit salad, different flavours of Greek yoghurt and plenty of drink options. The owner was there to greet us on arrival and provided us with loads of really useful information. He is not based on site but explained that we can call him for anything. The best thing about this place is the location. It is walking distance to 12th Avenue South which has loads of great independent restaurants, bars and shops. We ended up eating out here every night.

Cons: Can't think of any cons!

Just returned from a two night stay at 12 South Inn Suites. I really liked the location, with the 12th Avenue South restaurants close by and downtown attractions only about 10 minutes away. The Jr. King room was great. The bed and linens were excellent. You can watch the big screen TV from the bed or from a comfortable chair by the fireplace. The work table and Wifi lets you slip in a little work while you are there. The coffee blend is outstanding, and the juice / yogurt is a nice morning touch. Others reviews talk about the "fresh baked" pastries - I'm guessing store bought instead. The bathroom is a little cramped and could use updating, but that's pretty much nitpicking. This was an excellent find and beat the heck out of staying in hotel during our trip to Nashville.

I had the best experience in 12 South Inn Suites. I really recommend this B&B for a good place to enjoy Nashville. The process is really profesional, the house is gorgeous, the relation Price-quality I consider is much more tan fair, and the hosting of John is really amazing. I loved my private porch and the coffee, that coffee!!! Also the location is very convenient, near a lot of restaurants and very easy to arrive to downtown. For sure I will choose 12 South Inn again if returning to Nashville.

Just got back to the Atlanta area after spending two wonderful nights at 12 South Inn. Mr. John Schenk, the innkeeper and owner, was graciously waiting for us upon our arrival. We were impressed with the simplicity and at the same time the charming accommodations in an unpretentious neighborhood. The sitting area with its spacious bathroom and adjacent bedroom with its own desk and small coffee table next to a very large and comfortable bed were just perfect for us. In the sitting area we had fresh baked pastries with a small refrigerator stocked with fresh fruit salad, orange juice and yogurts. The innkeeper's coffee blend with a coffee maker, as well as a microwave and simple utensils were also provided. The facility was spotless, private and wifi friendly. It has its own free parking as well as a small porch were you can enjoy your morning coffee and read the paper. Its proximity to downtown made it easy to drive to the different venues. Overall, we had a terrific anniversary weekend.
