Stone Lion Inn
130 Commercial St.
What we liked most: The scones. Flaky and not too sweet, they're perfect with morning coffee.
What we liked least: Having to leave.
What surprised us: The rooms are named for places in Brooklyn, rather than nautical themes or seaside towns.
You know you're at the Stone Lion Inn when . . . You see the large stone lions flanking the entrance and out near the street.
