This was a repeat stay for us, and once again we enjoyed it! We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. The bed was excellent, and the microwave/refrigerator worked perfectly. My only complaint was that the room seemed dark with the energy saving light bulbs in use, but this is not unique to the Top Notch. You're in walking... More

We loved this place and enjoyed our stay. Everything was great. Great room, friendly staff, convenient location in town. The only thing is that breakfast is not included. There are other places in town that look similar, the the Top Notch has earned such a name. Muralitharan M # 117

Great room, pool/hot tub, friendly staff, convenient location in town, locally made soaps in the room, a cottage to stay in abutting the property which would be GREAT for a family trip! I met the owners a couple of years ago, and I really appreciate their vision for the town and how to operate in the hospitality business--meeting the needs... More

We loved this place and enjoyed our stay. Everything was great, especially the spa. Nice little fall getaway. Outdoor hot tub with nice view :) it snowed today, which was perfect. The only thing is that breakfast is not included, it seems that with such an expensive stay and luxury hotel, including breakfast would be a nice addition. The restaurant... More

This is an old style motel that has been totaly renovated adn upgraded. Mini split a/c and heat in each room is super quiet. Being on busy main street, (rte 2), it is remarkably quiet. Closes the last weekend in October, or I would plan my business trips north to enable me to stay here every month.

A well priced Hotel in the middle of the action. The Hotel was full when we arrived making us thankful for our advance reservation. The car park full off ATV's. Polite and attentive check in. The room was fairly standard. TV, box style air-conditioner, reasonably comfortable beds, large bathroom, fridge - very clean. WiFi with decent speed. Some noise leakage... More

Really super nice people run this Inn! We were in town for the Mountain Bike Weekend and for some hiking in the area. Our room was comfortable and had everything we needed including a microwave.

We got to stay in the Moriah House, which is part of the Top Notch Inn. The house was roomy even with a large group of people. The bedrooms were very clean with plenty of warm blankets. The bathrooms are very contemporary.
