We stayed at Top Notch Inn this past weekend while doing a lot of hiking in the area. We had to check in very late, and it was arranged for us without any issues. Everyone we spoke with (on the phone and in person) was very nice, the rooms were impecably clean, the location was excellent - few min drive... More

Went to Gorham nh to go 4-wheeling for the weekend. We stayed in a room with a king bed which has a small refrigerator with microwave plus coffee maker. Very clean and at a fair price per night. Nice in ground pool with a separate hot tub . James T. May 23, 2015. Rm 111

Hotel was clean and close to ATV trails. The price was very reasonable and local restaurants were also reasonably priced with home cooked style meals. We will definitely return! There is an outdoor pool that looked inviting yet it was not quite warm enough for swimming when I went. There is a laundry facility which is great for after you... More

4 in the family, plus our dog. We had the King with bunk bed room. A bit tight but everything we needed and clean. Nice neighborhoods to walk the dog around for exercise. Close to local restaurants and Mount Washington. We visited Story Land and it was fun vacation. Rick G., 8/17/2014 - 8/19/2014, Room 123

Thank you for your review! Our Deluxe King with Bunks is a very popular choice with families. Ask us next time about some of our favorite dog-walks for something a little different. See you again soon. More

Great location - plenty of food places in the area (including a convenience store for snacks), not too far from Santa's Village. We stayed a few nights last summer and are planning on returning this summer. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathroom fan was a bit loud and I worried that it would wake the kids (since we... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Sharon. Our guests often enjoy the fact that we’re located roughly the same distance between Santa’s Village and Storyland. We look forward to having your family stay with us again (and again). It’s going to be a great summer in the White Mountains. More

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!
