nice clean motel with clean and green grounds. Recommended for under 60$ for sure.
Grounds are clean and rooms are clean and smells pretty good. Decent place.

From the moment we walked in the door we were treated exceptionally well by the front desk staff who were welcoming and very attentive. We had a king deluxe room that was very clean and clean smelling. No breakfast but coffee is available. Location is close to Mt Washington. Only complaint were our noisey neighbours who were banging stuff around in their room upon their arrival (which we were surprised we could hear in our room), but after they settled in we didn't hear from them for the rest of the night. I was chilled after a long damp day of riding on our motorcycle and the staff were quick to give me a space heater as it seems the furnace was turned off for the season. The space heater worked very well. We would return.

5 ladies stayed in the Pinkham House - attached to the office. This 3 bedroom/1 1/2 bath was roomy, large kitchen, comfortable beds, and clean. We slept with windows open for a nice cool breeze at night. Unfortunately there was a record high on one of our days and without AC units, it was too warm to stay inside for very long. We were provided lots of fans and we left them going the second day while we were out. Came in to a much cooler place. Our only issue was traffic noise from the street that the house sat on (Main St). Traffic ran all night and thankfully the fans covered most of the noise.

Great king size bed, friendly staff, good room price. Enjoyed the town, friendly people, good food, White mountains,fantastic! Not free breakfast at Top Notch but room price was good. Found hotels expensive in full in New Hampshire and Vermont during "leaf peeping" season, but my guess is prices are high all the time.

the employees of Top Notch Inn really made our stay here wonderful. They accomdated our need to change oru reservation halfway through our stay, provided a wealth of information on and discounts to area attractions and were exceedingly friendly.

I highly recommend staying at the Top Notch Inn if your budget can accomodate their slightly expensive rates ($118 a night *cough*!)
