We had a great time at the Top Notch Inn. We stayed in the Pinkham House and it was perfect for our family. The kids had fun in the pool. We enjoyed our meals at J's Corner and at Mr. Pizza. We had 2 fun days at Santa's Village. It was a great option, only 20 minutes from the Park.... More

Stayed with the family last minute after hiking on Washington. It was one of the only motels with rooms on the Friday before the 4th of July. It was a basic motel room, no frills. It was clean and comfortable. The pool was small and did not have a very large shallow area for children. The hot tub was in... More

We stayed here on the way up to Canada in June 2015. The room was clean, bathroom small but workable. Staff were friendly and helped point us to some moose spotting areas and some options for dinner and breakfast (some with discounts for staying with the motel). Free wifi at good speeds and plenty of cable TV channels. Overall a... More

It's an old but completely remodeled hotel. Nice clean spacious rooms. Amenities with Jacuzzi and pool. Courteous and friendly employees. Right in downtown so it is close to everything and is convenient. I'm staying here again this year for my yearly excursion to this area.

I took time to research some of the area hotels..this property looked to be very nice and reasonable for what I needed it for. The rooms are older but clean..a rattle in the bathroom fan. I was there 2 nights... The first night was ok..we got up and left at 7:30am and did not return until 6pm that evening..to walk... More

We certainly do apologize to you once again about the unfortunate and unlikely chain of events around your stay with us. We try our best but sometimes we do have short falls! As we did explain to you we had a rare water issue, and the housekeeper mistakenly thought you were in your room and that you had requested no... More

Every year we take the kids one day at Story Land and another at Santa's Village. Gorham, NH is a great in between place to stay, and it is in walking distance to many restaurants, mini golf, ice cream and has a great festival for the Fourth of July. We love the Top Notch Inn!

This "older" motel is right up to date with pool, hot tub, and clean, comfortable rooms. We especially liked the chairs with the roll-under ottomans. The provision of a microwave and a generously-sized refrigerator makes the room convenient and homey. In addition, staff members are invariably pleasant and helpful.

This was a return trip to the Top Notch Inn. We stayed 2 nights, June 24 and 25th. We came back because of the location, and value. The staff is super friendly, the rooms are clean, and we enjoyed our stay. The pool was well maintained, and the hot tub was also nice. One thing that I absolutely was surprised... More
