We stayed here for 2 nights while hiking around Mt. Washington (about 15 minutes away). The room was very clean and comfortable, and they have made special touches by putting out Adirondack chairs and grills in the lawn for people to hang out. WiFi worked best outside of the room, but it was nice to sit outside on a bench and visit with neighbors while researching trails. One special note - we made a reservation online but the day we planned to check in, the Inn called to let us know the room we reserved was located near the road and would be noisy. Noise is a very important factor for us, so I was very grateful for the head’s up. They offered to move us to a quieter room, and the room we had was perfect! Very quiet for a good night’s sleep!

The staff was very nice.

Plenty of parking the walls between rooms block sound well, had people on both sides could not hear them.

The windows, heater snd bathroom were sll brand new and functioned flawlessly, heater is quiet, no rattles.

Mrs. B, Luc Barrett and I made our reservation very easily and received an email confirmation , then the day before a text welcoming us from Natalie. The check in was fast and easy with Natalie, just about the nicest and helpful employee. After I told her I had my German Shepherd with us, she came out to greet him.
Easy and plenty of parking right outside our door. The room was excellent and newly furnished, the bathroom was new. The bed was very comfortable, the flat screen TV had plenty of channels, the refrigerator was new and big, as was the A/C/Heater with remote control and micro wave.
The WI Fi is strong and the bed lamp has the plugs to charge two phones.
The restaurant next door offers 10% off your entire bill by showing your room key.
We will absolutely be back next year.

Excellent place to stay! We went with friends to ride side by sides, the location was close to the trails, close to food, gas etc. Plenty of parking for trucks and trailers in an adjacent lot. The rooms were clean, staff was friendly. Nice sitting area with a place for a fire, grills for cooking out and meeting new friends.
There is also a nice clean swimming pool and hot tub for use after a day of site seeing or riding the trails.
I would highly recommend staying at Top Notch if your visiting the Gorham NH area!

I was more than pleasantly impressed during my recent two night stay. They lived up to the cleansiness standards posted on their site. You could tell the room had more than a cursory wave of a dust cloth. Bed was comfortable. Liked the shampoo and body wash dispensers in shower. Dish cable had more than enough channel offerings. Ask for room 110 and you will be on the end with a neighbor on only one side. Unique to the property is a fire ring in the center green with Adirondack chairs. Music piped in until 9;30 pm provides a place to relax and meet other travelers. Three spotless gas grills if you want to grill some burgers. Office staff helpful with local restaurant suggestions. Don't be out off by only the two star rating. Should at least be a three. I have stayed in Fairfield Inns which haven't been as nice.

We needed an overnight stay for a trip to Mt. Washington. Top Notch In was perfect! Staff took every precaution to ensure the lobby was sanitary and safe at check in. Our room was extremely clean! The walls were freshly painted a serene gar, the king bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was large. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and relaxed on large Adirondack chairs in the courtyard. There was also a fire pit, BBQ grills, and corn hole available for guests. Music pumped out of the lobby speakers Into the courtyard. We highly recommend this quaint, clean, and affordable inn!

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. The motel looks like it has recently been updated. The room was clean and smelled fresh! The bathroom was updated and we really liked the large soap dispensers instead of the small travel size ones that get thrown away after one use. The beds were average and made a lot of noise when one turned over. We would stay there again.

this is a two star motel and i thought it was better then what it is rated.First off its very close to mount washington which is where we wanted to go.When we got to the room it was very clean,bright and cheery and the bathroom was so big! i have never been to a hotel where the bathroom was this big and it had a big walk in shower where they supplied shampoo and body wash on the wall so you can take out what you needed.The air conditioner worked so good i was freezing after 10 minutes.And if you dont feel like going to look for a place to eat your in luck because it pretty much shares the parking lot with "J's restaurant and lounge that had fantastic food at good prices! large portions too! I recommend this place for sure!

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this motel. From checkin to checkout, the experience was truly top notch. It’s a family-owned establishment, and the owners are on the property and very personable. The room was even nicer than I had expected. There was a table with two chairs, a comfy king bed, a refrigerator, and a microwave. I’m a hiker, and some things are important to me when I am staying in the White Mountain area. A refrigerator and microwave make it easy to make inexpensive meals in the room. The room was recently updated with new paint and new bathroom fixtures. I love the paint colors. There was a little fireplace-looking space heater by the door to add warmth if you are cold. The heating worked just fine, and I like it slightly cooler, so I only used the spacer heater a couple of times when first coming in from a hike. In the bathroom, the sink is deep, and the facet is tall, so you can get your water bottles filled easily. The only thing I really missed was having a rod for hanging clothes rather than three pegs, which limited what I could hang, and as a hiker, you really need to hang pants and jackets to allow them to dry out for the next day’s hike. I really liked this place. Eventually some updated furniture and wall art would make this place truly exceptional. Definitely stay here. You will love it.

I stayed in Pinkham House at the inn with my 10 and 13 year old when we had a ski festival at Great Glen. We booked this only because the ‘official’ hotel was full and I feel lucky it was. This 2 floor house was sparkling clean with a full size kitchen, dining area, 1/2bath, and cozy living room downstairs. The upstairs was sunny and had 2 huge bedrooms and a cozy third and a nice full bathroom. Beds were very comfortable. We got a late start from home and the super friendly front desk person called to let us know where we could get our key if we got in after 11:00 pm. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
