We had a great stay in June at the Inn on Second on a quiet street near the subway in Brooklyn. Our bright room was in the back with a very comfortable bed, two windows that opened plus AC if needed. We had wifi, a coffee maker and a fridge stocked with juice, milk water so we could have fresh... More

Joe and Fran are great hosts at this charming brownstone. With 2 subway lines close by, an area with lots of restaurants and shops a street that's quiet and tree-lined, it's a great place to stay. The price is right, too.. My room was large and beautiful. Hosts provide fridge filled with drinks, coffee, computer, a/c when needed. This will... More

Our host, Joe, was the best! So helpful! Really made us feel at home in this big city! The bed was comfortable and the room and bath very clean. The Inn is located in a great part of Brooklyn too. Lots to do there!

This charming brownstone is on a lovely quiet street right next to F train. Everything is walkable. Room with computer, fridge and drinks, coffee and tea. Shared bathroom with the other room. Owners live downstairs and are longtime residents. I would definitely stay again. Price can't be beat.

I went to visit my son and previously stayed in a wonderful hotel and planned to go back there when I found this gem on TripAdvisor. This bed and breakfast (without the breakfast) was half the price of the hotel and ten times the charm. It is the home of Joe and Fran who made my stay so pleasant and... More

We have stayed at the Inn on Second many times and we highly recommend this spot for visitors to Brooklyn. We come in a few times a year to see family and the accommodations feel like home. Everything is spotless, comfy and wonderful. Joe and Fran are just about the nicest people around and will help travelers with anything they... More

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...
