This motel is within walking distance to some restaurants. The rooms are clean, and have a nice décor. This motel should serve a continental breakfast. It offered a ten percent discount to a nearby restaurant.

It is hard to see how these ratings are achieved, not just my opinion There are lots of Mom's & Pops roadhouses like it around, as no chains have any presence hereabouts. If you do not supply a hot breakfast for guests, surely you should supply a continental fayre. Housekeeper did not leave clean cups or coffee fixings in room... More

The Top Notch Inn is clean and convenient. We spent a night in October while attending the annual mountain bike weekend event. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Our accommodations had everything we needed and the bed was comfortable. It is also within walking distance of many places to eat. Our particular favorite was Libby's Bistro for dinner.

I was fortunate to be able to stay two nights at the Cottage. This cottage was newly renovated with granite countertops, huge master bedroom and plenty of pluming to take care of a houseful of eight mountain biking adults and additional mountain bikers came for adult conversation and munchies. It was very clean and had the smell of new construction.... More

The staff at the Top Notch Inn were the friendliest of friendly. We booked a one-night stop midway to our destination, and wished we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Madison Room - which was cozy, clean and very spacious. We already have thoughts of returning and having a little escape time next year!

We visited Top Notch for a outdoors weekend, its very close to mountain bike trails and Gorham is a ATV friendly town. Staff answered all our questions and accommodated our late arrival. The pool / Jacuzzi was open late in the season. The room we stayed in was obviously newly renovated and very nice. Lives up to the name "Top... More

Our room was clean and nicely decorated and it was very quiet. There was a nice view of the mountains just outside the door. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the Inn was located close to a few good places to eat. Would definitely stay there again next year.

Very nice front desk clerk Kevin checked me in. They even upgraded me to one of their newly renovated rooms. I found it clean and nice. Shower head was nice but pressure was on the weak side.
