4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in the Mt. Adams room last week, and although the road was a bit noisy in the morning, we slept through the night without issue. The bed was comfortable, the room was a nice size, and the price was right. And Kevin and Hannah were two of the friendliest clerks we met along our trip. It's a small... More

This motel is located right on the main road going through Gorham and is within walking distance to several restaurants and only a few miles away from activities in the White Mountains. Upon check-in we were offered a free room upgrade - SWEET!! The staff in the office were very nice and helpful in recommending things to see in the... More

Top Notch is conveniently located in center of Gorham; you could walk to most places to eat but not necessary as there is easy access to and from Route 2. Our kids loved the pool and hot tub and the bunk beds. Thomas T., 8-21-2015, 8-22-2015, 8-23-2015. Room 123

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We were very pleased to use the available coin op laundry, and very much enjoyed the Chinese place next door for dinner.

This is a very welcoming motel, from the entrance to the friendly helpful staff. Our room was well equipped with a fridge and microwave, table and chairs. The king bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was modern and the whole room was spotlessly clean. We had a great nights rest after a long drive. We would highly recommend this nice... More

We decided to stay at this place because of its reviews and definitely we made a good decision. Rooms are small, but they are very clean and cozy; everything is close, restaurants, tours, kayaking, hiking, church, supermarket and Mt. Washington. Customer service rep. was very helpful and very friendly, overall this place was perfect. Zoila C. 08/22/15 Room 119

We stayed in the Mt. Washington room. It was a comfortable, with a refrigerator and microwave in the room along with cable TV. There are several good restaurants in the area which gave discounts and were within walking distance. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The grounds and rooms were clean and nicely decorated. We weren't sure about the noise... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review Robert. Many of our guests appreciate our country rooms which are part of our restored 100 year old farmhouse. Next time try a different one as they are all very unique. More

We chose the Top Notch Inn because of its location - a bit away from the crowded area of North Conway, but smack in the middle of all the places we wanted to visit AND the Pinkham House.

Thank you for sharing your experience. The Pinkham House and our newer Moriah Cottage are very popular with families who are looking for a home away from home. Having a family room and separate bedrooms makes for enjoyable holidays. We hope to see you and your family again next time. More

We stayed at the Top Notch Inn for the first time this last weekend and enjoyed our stay. The room that we stayed in had been recently updated and had modern fixtures as well.
