Reasonable price. King bed and bunk beds- great for Mom, Dad, and kids. Clean room. SUPER friendly staff. Great central location. Misses one star as it was a smaller room than I expected- the bunk bad ladder was only inches away from the "adult" king-size bed and in the middle of the night I scraped my ankle on it. That reflects on my expectations not on the staff or housekeeping- the room was cramped but clean!

Room Tip: One room has its own parking in the back- it was nice.

Families really like our rooms with a king bed, and bunk beds as you did! We're so glad you enjoyed our clean rooms and friendly staff. Somehow the bunk bed ladder was not in it's proper place, and we apologize for that! Thank you so much for writing us a nice review, and we hope to see you and your family back here soon!

Happened on Top Notch after checking several other motels in town - this place was wonderful - we had the two rooms upstairs near office and they were perfect in every detail. The only downside was no breakfast - seems for the price paid they could provide light meal to get people started.

Room Tip: Try the Mt. Washington room

Excellent reviews make us proud! Thank you for providing other TripAdvisor viewers with your review. The rooms you were in are the "Mt Washington" and "Mt Madison", which is great for 2 couples.
We do offer complimentary brewed "New England" coffee in each room with a little Mr Coffee maker. The restaurant down the street gives our guests a 10% discount for breakfast too. We certainly will entertain the idea of providing a light breakfast. Thanks again~

Simple hotel near mount washington. Nothing fancy about the place. Front desk help was extremely nice. Rooms were comfortable, slept well. Would come back. Price was very reasonable as I did not feel like dropping a ridiculous 350 plus a night at the mount washington hotel for a similar room.....

My family(2 Adults and 2 Boys, 10 and 9) and I stayed here for 1 night on Sept 22, 2013. We booked a king bed with bunk bed room. It was great. The room was very clean, the front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay here again and we would abolutely recommend this hotel to others.

We stayed in one of the rooms that was recently renovated. Bathroom is nicely done and the room is very nice. Our only suggestions would be to replace the pillows and towels to complete the makeover. Also, the fridge in the room did not have a freezer and neither did the fridge in the front office so there was no place to freeze our cooler's ice packs overnight - kind of inconvenient!

Thank you for the review, glad that you found the room very nice! We did replace all of our pillows and towels this season but will definitely check them again. Being an eco friendly motel, we purposely don't have really big thick fluffy towels since they take longer to wash and dry, thus taking more energy. We appreciate your suggestions and detailed review to help us serve our guests better in the future! Thanks for sharing, and come back soon!

As a group of three adults, we always book two rooms at the Top Notxh Inn. We have never been disappointed with our accommodations. The staff is always friendly and more than willing to do whatever they can to make the stay comfortable. There are excellent restaurants close by, offering a variety of good food. We wee there in rooms 112 and 114 on Sept. 15, 2013. Both of these rooms have been totally refinished, with beautiful furnishings, lovely bathroom amenities, and state of the art heating and cooling systems. Will be staying at Top Noxh again!

Absolutely the best stay...from well designed and spotless rooms to courteous hosts! Typically I look for large hotel chains and I knew I would be taking a chance on an independent motel in this area of New Hampshire, but based on other favorable reviews I felt more confident. I was not disappointed. I stayed 3 nights and this motel was the perfect choice in the center of town and information provided about local businesses for the weary traveler. The housekeeping was well exceptional. Would highly recommend to any traveler! Enjoy your stay at the Top Notch Inn!!!
