My son & I have been staying here for the last 5-6 years. We stay there for the 1st Nascar race of 2. The flowers & plants are absolutely beautiful i8n which Scott does a great job.George is always welcoming, and friendly. This is a good location to day trips to the lake & mountain regions.

We stayed 4 nights in two rooms (family of 6). The beds were ok but the sheets weren't changed during our stay. The little window unit a/c cooled it down ok but things felt damp and our swimming things would never dry. The pool is small but very clean. The kicker was the neighbor. She drank & smoked like a chimney right outside our doors and dropped f-bombs all day long, even in front of the kids. There are pretty mountain and lake views from the porch but kept having to take refuge inside. The gardens are lovely and the kids really enjoyed the table tennis and swimming. Pretty good for the price.

While the guests in the neighboring room did drink and smoke, at no point did we find them drunk or loud or they would have been gone. They were actually quite pleasant to chat with, so this review is quite a surprise. We enjoy having families, but it is unreasonable to expect other paying guests to sanitize normal adult behavior just because children are around. We change sheets on the third night of any extended stay. I do know for a fact the sheets in one of your rooms were changed since they were bundled up on the floor following a mishap. We also generally will not touch beds if they are covered with personal belongings, of which you had many, so as to avoid possibly knocking small items like jewelry onto the floor. If the beds in your other room weren't changed, that might be why, or it might have just been an oversight.

PS... Just to clarify for anyone reading: we do not have any air conditioners in windows. They are all suitably sized units mounted through the wall.

Great place to stay. The owner is very motorcycle friendly. Stayed during bike week and will be back again. the owner had rags to wipe the bikes down and an area to do a full wash if you anted to. Within walking distance of places to eat and many bike week vendors.

My mom, sister, and I stayed at the Bay Top for the first time last weekend and it was a wonderful stay! The location alone simply can't be beat. This motel is located 5 minutes from Weirs Beach and 10-15 minutes from Funspot, Kellerhause, and downtown Meredith. I can't even lie, I am not typically the "motel" type of person but the experience here truly was top-notch. There were three of us and there was plenty of room. Not only that, the cleanliness was superior to that of Sheraton and Westin brand hotels I have stayed in. This is a great place for families to get away, be close to at all, and pay a reasonable rate. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Room #7 has 2 doubles and a twin for larger parties!

This family run motel has more charm than those chain hotel/motels which you won't even find this close to Lake Winnipeasaukee. Whereas year after year other motels are bought up and converted in condo's, the Bay Top Motel is a family run business, and even if George finally decides to retire, his son will take over without missing a beat.

While they close every winter, the owner's aren't taking in the sunshine down south. Nope, they are always updating and/or renovating, making returning guests excited at the new findings for the coming year.

With large flat screen TV's (and DVD players) in every room, truly reliable WIFI service, a shower (that other chain hotels wish that they had), beautiful, clean furnishings, spotless carpeted floors, comfortable beds and more than enough pillows for everyone, there isn't much more that you will need in an affordable motel in the Lakes Region.

But be forewarned, because this secret is quickly getting out, and due in part to their small size, you may want to make those reservations early.

If there was one downside to my trip this year in the second week of October, it was that I missed the breathtaking beauty of this hotel and it's Tropical Gardens as Autumn was well underway. So those of you considering visiting during the summer months of 2014, well you are in for some beautiful landscaping in addition to their already wonderful amenities.

The Bay Top Motel, the little motel in the Lakes Region that will leave you with lasting and wonderful memories.

Loved everything about the Baytop. The room was tastefully decorated and very clean. We went after Labor Day and so it was very quiet. Enjoyed the gazebo and the flowers. Everyone who worked there was very friendly. Loved the fact that there was a DVD player in the room since we had our own movies with us. Will certainly be back next year!!!

This motel was an easy one night stop off during our road trip. The rooms were clean and well kitted out with a fridge, microwave and TV/ DVD player. The shower was clean & powerful ( or maybe I've had bad shower experiences at other motels!)
All in all a lovely stay at a nice place with a great view of a pretty lake.
