The Inn on Second is a great value, in a terrifically convenient location, with welcoming hosts. The F train is at the top of the block, for getting into Manhattan, and Smith Street is loaded with places to eat. It is an inn rather than a B&B, so stock up on breakfast food if you want to eat in. There's... More

This is a wonderful find! The owners live on the main floor, the two rental rooms are on the second floor. Both rooms are lovely. In addition to a comfortable bed, there are great chairs, a desk/table, refrigerator, coffee pot, adequate closet space, and even a computer. Although the bathroom is shared between the two rooms, we have had no... More

I don't want to give this such high reviews, because I want to keep the secret to myself so there is always room for me! This place is fantastic. Super nice owners who are relaxed and helpful and friendly. Large rooms with comfortable beds and all the amenities you can wish for. They think of everything! Perfect location, just a... More

My wife and I recently stayed here and loved our stay. The rooms were VERY well kept and everything was VERY clean. The room and bathroom were very clean. There was coffee, tea, and juice provided in the room. There was a mini refrigerator for keeping food and drinks. The inn keepers were very welcoming and accommodating. The inn is... More

We were in Brooklyn for a family wedding and so booked the two rooms together. It was a good choice. Great area, friendly street and plenty of good cafes for breakfast on Smith. Equally good range of places for an evening meal, too. Easy walk to subway with heavy bags - and to Brooklyn Heights and city centre without. A... More

We always stay at the Inn on Second, whenever we go to New York City. The Innkeepers are the nicest! It's close to funky and fun Smith and Court Streets and has a train stop at the base of the street. It's clean and comfy. Not posh or ultra fancy and you do have to share the hall bathroom with...

Inn on Second was an excellent value. The hosts were friendly and eager to help with any questions we had. The price was extremely good, and the location was convenient, on a quiet residential street with a subway station one block away to take you into Manhattan.

Inn on Second exceeded all my expectations. Joe welcomed me with a big smile and gave me the tour. I stayed in the Big Apple Room, which was very nice. I easily connected to their WiFi with my iPad, although they do have a nice desktop PC in the room. I liked the Eames-type chair. The linens, towels, bathroom --... More

My only regret was that my room here was only available for an overnight stay. Elegant brownstone, all the amenities (including wireless, an internet-connected laptop, and even a fine selection of books), and a wonderful, welcoming host. Next time I'll reserve far in advance for a longer stay and the fuller experience.

First, let me go over the positives: -price: for Brooklyn/Manhattan, its a great value -location: we couldn't ask for anything more. You're 1 minute from the subway line and a 2 to 15 minute walk from all the restaurants and bars a young couple would want to hit (Momofuku Milk, Al di La, Mission Dolores, Bierkraft to name a few)....

The reviewer complains that he was unable to operate the room Frigidaire Air Conditioner and that our 120 year old Brownstone lacks central AC for the hallway and bathroom. We plead no lo contendre. We regret that this gentleman was unhappy with his stay here but we are consoled by the fact that he is the only one of hundreds... More
