Nothing fancy, but it is an excellent courtyard motel in the center of town. Everyone was great and the rooms were spotless and reasonable. We usually do not stay in mom n pop style restaurants, but this one is exceptional.

Nothing too fancy, a little dated but it was clean! The mattress was a little firm for our liking, but the onsite pay laundry and ice maker (free) were nice. Also, parking in front of our room was nice and convenient. Place had free wifi and a place for pets to potty (we didn't bring a pet). We only stayed... More

We only stayed for one night but it was wonderful! The staff was friendly, the rooms were very clean, and the most important...the bathroom was spotless! We went Memorial Day weekend and the pool and hot tub were already open to our surprise! Short drive to santas village and lots of other attractions. We'll definitely be back again!

Stayed here while briefly visiting the White Mountains area. If you want to miss out on the crowds of North Conway this could be the place to stay. The room was adequate with the two double beds and a good shower. The young lady at reception was very friendly and most helpful.

Stayed during memorial day weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had nice features. Had a nice pool, hot tub, and the rooms have microwaves and refrigerators. Great deal! I recommend checking them out for a steal during the busy weekend.

I go to Gorham all most every year, and have stayed at different places, but prefer Top Notch. The rooms are all nice, and the staff is great. Making reservations is easy on line, or by phone. It is close to a lot of places too.

We have been coming to the Top Notch Inn with good friends for the last several years as part of our annual trip with our children to Santa's Village and Story Land.

Wow! This is one of the most concerning reviews we’ve ever seen! We’re sorry you had a bad experience. We checked our records, and question if you stayed here with us at the Top Notch Inn. First of all, the pricing difference doesn’t correlate with our pricing since our rooms for 2 persons have a $10 difference, not $20. We... More
