We enjoyed staying in the Inn on second. The rooms are spacious and the bed is quite comfortable, but no TV. Just a minute's walk to the subway to Manhattan. Parking is free on the road side, but not to be recommended, since you barely find an empty spot. Strolling along Court and Smith Street there are nice places for... More

Very nice place in a quiet, safe area but just 2 minutes walk from the subway and shops and restaurants. Very friendly, helpful owners. If you don't want to share the bathroom don't stay here, but we knew when we booked that the bathroom was shared. There are only 2 rooms available so this did not cause a problem. Lovely,... More

Our party of four (all adults in our 50s) stayed in the two rooms five nights in June 2016 and found the Inn on Second to exceed our already high expectations in every way. The rooms are adequately large for New York City, the place is immaculate and tastefully appointed, the refrigerator is well stocked, amenities are plentiful, the free... More

This was our second stay, and we love the neighborhood, the quietness of the street, and the homey feel. Plus it's near our Brooklyn daughter, who in Brooklyn fashion doesn't have enough room for us to stay with her. The host is friendly and responsive. Breakfast isn't served, but with a small fridge stocked with juices and a coffee maker,... More

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend and really appreciated the quiet, cleanliness, and location of Inn on Second. This is not a fancy place, nor should it be...it is an exceptionally reasonable, super clean, spot to land after exploring fabulous Brooklyn. There is not a TV (hallelujah!), and the bathroom is shared and small. We really appreciated... More

What a lovely place to spend a few days. It is an old building in a lovely section of Brooklyn. Close to everything. Immaculately clean and very comfortable. It is obvious that the owners put their heart and soul into this outstanding place.

Having completed a New England road trip, we dumped the car at JFK and spent three outstanding days in NYC. And what a base to do it from! Fantastic house and hosts, superb location, literally 2 minutes from the subway and dozens of restaurants and bars. We've stayed in Manhatten before and first time visitors would probably want that experience,... More

I have stayed here several times on my trips to NYC. This is the first place I check for availability once I decide on the days for a trip to New York. The location is perfect.

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
