Riding motorcycles around New England, we don't make reservations and generally make a late decision on a room. Top Notch Inn is close to the Mt Washington Road in NH and was an excellent choice for us. We needed laundry an they have one. The staff was friendly and helped us find good dining within walking distance. The office loaned... More

My family and I stayed in the Pinkham House. I did not tell my family we would be staying there, and they were pleasantly surprised to find we had so much room to spread out. It was clean and spacious. We unknowingly booked on the atv weekend so the street was a little loud (but entertaining!). We had a wonderful... More

Latest modern updates in this clean and comfortable room. We were drawn in by its attractive signage but were genuinely impressed by its quality. It is walking distance to restaurants and shops, in the middle of the gorgeous White Mountains. I particularly appreciated that they used all natural cleaning supplies without fragrances since we have perfume allergies in the family.... More

We liked this small place very close to the nature. We were in room named Mt Monroe and it was well equipped with microwave and small fridge, a large bathroom, all clean as you can see in my pictures. There was a coffee machine but no coffee for which i gave only 4 stars. They have a outdoor pool which... More

We first found TNI online when we were visiting Story Land and Santa's Village. We weren't sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the rooms and the location of the inn. We have now stayed there 4-5 times and will keep staying as long as we keep visiting the region.

We arrived in Gorham after being on the AT hiking through the whites. We found the front desk staff at the top notch to be wonderful! They were happy and helpful with our odd hiker requests. The hot tub was great for our tired muscles. Great place for a zero day.

This was our first stop after a presidential hut to hut traverse. We were pleasantly surprised at how well appointed the rooms were. Service was excellent, as we were upgraded to a better room further from the street to avoid some bike week noise. The room was very clean, remodeled bathrooms very nice, even the towels were above par. Didn't... More
