“Reasonable price & staff that makes you feel at home!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We enjoyed a stay for three nights when we visited the Gorham, NH area! The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The housekeeping was very excellent! We were happy to stay in a newly renovated room, which was cozy and comfy-important since we were there for a very chilly holiday weekend which included snow in the elevations. We look forward to staying there again and are happy to recommend the accommodations. For those requiring a pool, there is a hot tub available. Also a laundry facility. Location is excellent for access to presidential range activities and Mt Washington. Area eateries were very good, although limited access for some because of Memorial Day holiday (some were closed). Happily our dog was welcome as well!

Room Tip: I would be sure to ask for one of the renovated rooms.

On our way from Maine through the White Mountains we found ourselves in Gorham, N.H. when it was time to stop for the night. We drove through the village and decided on The Top Notch Inn. The young lady on the desk was very friendly and after a short chat with her we went to our room which was very comfortable, with two beds, a couple of nice easy chairs and a desk to take care of our computer needs. We recieved a 10% off coupon for the restaurant next door for dinner and for breakfast we just had to show our motel reciept for a discount at another restaurant. Both of which were very good. The lady at check-out was also very friendly.

My wife and I were driving through Gorham on a rainy afternoon in mid Oct and saw this attractive motel. Our stay there was wonderful. Our room (with King Size bed) was beautifully decorated and immaculate. I read one review where a person said that they were rudely treated, but my experience was totally the opposite. The staff were extremely cordial and helpful in all respects. I observed another guest at check-in who also remarked about the friendliness of the staff who answered all my questions and provided helpful suggestions. I would definitely stay there again and recommend Top Notch Inn to others.

We were a group of freinds going to climb mount Washigton. Good service, clean. Ask for a renovated room. 2nd visit there and both times we wre very plased. This time we had a 'deluxe' that included a microwave and fridge. For some reason had a difficult time using the WIFI but overall a very good and convenient stay.

This is not the first time we have stayed at the Top Notch Inn and once again found it to be clean, comfortable and good service. This is a very good time of the year to travel, great weather, beautiful colors, crisp mornings and warm afternoons. The best.

Room Tip: Ask for the Madison Room.

We stopped at the Top Notch Inn based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. A very clean motel in a downtown location with several restaurant locations nearby. Service was excellent and the staff very helpful. Excellent value.
