We tried calling, but the phone has been disconnected; we drove by and there were no signs up. Too bad! The website still looks viable, but that's it. I'm not sure why I need to write 200 characters to review something, when what I'm trying to do is caution other travelers in the way that I would like to be... More

We needed a motel to stay the night before ascending Mt Washington via the Cog Railway. We finally decided on the Above the Notch Motor Inn and we are pleased we did! The motel is reasonably priced, considering the other accommodation options in the area and is in fact very convenient, if not the most convenient, to the Cog Railway.... More

Several friends and I reserved 2 rooms, one with a rollaway bed. We arrived late but our rooms were waiting for us. Very clean rooms & the employee who checked us in was very polite and very accommodating for extras we needed. Highly recommend this motor lodge.

we wanted to be close to the cog railway, to see the foliage . The room had two full beds and a table and chairs . We brought breakfast sandwiches which we heated in the microwave and drinks which we put in the refrigerator because there aren't many restaurants in the area . They have games at the office which...

We stayed for one night during our trip round New England last October. The Above the Notch can best be described as good basic accommodation, very conveniently situated for the nearby Cog Railway, and is a great place to stay if you want to catch the early morning steam service up Mount Washington. Compared to most of our other stops,... More

We wanted to be close to the Cog Railway for the first train. The receptionists were pleasant, the room represented good value for the money and was , basic but clean and quiet. This fit the bill for us.

We rented a room for 2 nights on a family weekend. The staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was small, smelled like moth balls and the bathroom wasn't very clean, even showing molds. We went to a nearby gas station to find some scented candles or air spray because the odor really bugged us. The beds were not... More

We chose this hotel based on its proximity to the Cog. We have an 8 yr old and wanted to ride the 8:15 am steam train. Having never visited NH, we opted to stay at the closest hotel. Checkin was easy. The office staff was not aware that breakfast was available at the Cog.....they directed back into town the other... More

And that's OK....it works if you're looking for an inexpensive place for just a night or two. First of all, the staff was friendly and the room very clean. It looked as if it had recently been painted and spiffed up...and the price is right - $78/night plus tax in early June. There are not too many other alternatives in... More

The Above the Notch is a pretty straightforward motel. My room had a nice couch as well as one bed. The bathroom was basic and small, but did the job well enough. The room was clean and really rather pleasant. The microwave was an unexpected extra. The Above the Notch did not have their own WiFI, but I was able... More
