Three of us traveled to Brooklyn where our nephew lives so that we could go to his graduation from CUNY Law School. We rented both rooms for 5 days...what a pleasure - from the time we arrived to the time we left. Joe and Fran really care for their guests! They are like a "ghost maid and butler team" that...

And, yes, this has been our "home away from home" for several years. Jan and Joe are wonderful people, very helpful and knowledgeable. The two rooms are very similar and we've stayed in both, but usually in the front room. Both have a small fridge stocked with snacks and soft drinks and there's a coffee/tea maker in the room along... More

I was going to say that the Inn on Second is truly our “home away from home” in New York, but several of you have beat me to it. We’ve been coming here for years and always leave with the feeling that Fran and Joe are not just the innkeepers, but our friends. They pretty much have anticipated your every... More

For all those travelers to New York who are convinced the city ends at the East River, I've got some news for you. Brooklyn is the place to be and the Inn on Second is the best way to be a part of it. Carroll Gardens has some of New York's most charming residential areas, quirky independent shops, fine dining...

We had a wonderful week's stay at the Inn on Second. The Inn is in a great neighborhood, Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn. A subway stop is right at the end of the block, and numerous restaurants are just around the corner. The rooms (we were two couples so had both rooms) were quiet and clean. The beds were firm, the...

We stayed here while visiting our son in Brooklyn. Inn on Second is clean, comfortable, safe, and quiet. Joe and Fran are wonderful people and their home is a great place to stay. In room fridge with juices, etc., and coffee maker are nice touches. We were in the front room, and had absolutely no problem with street noise on... More

A lovely room in a nice Brownstone, in a charming Carroll Gardens neighborhood, with nearby restaurants, and great subway access - couldn't ask for anything more. There are only two rooms, sharing one clean bathroom, so there is zero hassle here. The hosts are friendly, the neighborhood quiet, and there is even a laptop in the room, plus coffee maker....

The Inn on Second is a true gem and wonderful place to stay. It has all the comforts of home because it is a home, not just a hotel. It is small, intimate and well equipped. Both rooms are very comfortable and have quiet air conditioners to beat the summer heat. The rooms are full of original charm of the... More

We have relatives who live in Brooklyn and whom we visit at least yearly, but don't have enough room for us. We have stayed at the ultra expensive Brooklyn Marriott in the past, which may be fancy, but can be rather impersonal. It was located way too far from our relatives which caused us to spend even more on cabs... More
