It's been a long time since I've stayed at this Motor Inn, but with good reason. Two of my children own a condo at Attitash so I stay there whenever I can. With that said, I had the privilage of staying there for somewhere around 3-4 days (inc. New Years Eve, etc), and I believe Steve had only been an... More

We found this hotel to be quaint and ideally located for ease in getting to the Cog Railway. It is an older hotel but is nostalgic in it's decor and style. We felt it was a great deal for the price and found the owners, Steve and (I think) Laurie to be extremely accommodating and kind. In just a day... More

This hotel was not good. I felt like we were in the movie "Vacation" when we opened the door to the room. Felt like saying "Edna, this is your room!. It stunk of mildew/dampness. We tried to get another room but they couldn't switch us. We actually looked around for another hotel, being willing to sacrifice the price, but it... More

Our rooms offer microwaves and refrig., which is great for our guest to cook some or all their meals in the room which greatly reduces the costs of dining out for every meal.

Musty, dank and dingy. We stayed in a room that had an overwhelming smell of mildew! After one night (just a few hours) we were stuffed up and our belongings wreaked. Was it the old couch, the bed or the nasty carpet? When we spoke to the staff of the issue, they told us that they were already aware of... More

My family and I spent one night at the Above The Notch Motor Inn. We felt that the value for our money was great. The place was clean, staff are VERY helpful, and friendly. The place is not fancy and would not appeal to those that prefer 4- and 5-star hotels. The location is wonderful. We plan to stay here... More

Stayed one night in this clean, standard functional motel. Room was a bit more spacious than usual. WIFI is not provided free. You must pay for WIFI from a private service, per hour $4.99 or per day $10.99 and only one concurrent laptop. We tried logging on, one after the other, with our two laptops and that worked ok but...

We cut our camping short due to rain, but didn't want to break the budget. Above the Notch gave us exactly what we needed. Nothing like a warm room and hot shower to make you feel human. Surprisingly, they even had in room coffee and fridge!

And that is what we got, nothing else. The room was "clean" - the bathroom could have used some new caulking and tile as there was years of mildew stains. The white sheets were crisp and clean, the duvet covers were very worn and old as were the mattresses. I was hoping for the price, things would have been a... More

“There is no restaurant or pool (that I've seen), but desk staff know the area and are helpful in directing you to area facilities. Some traffic noise from Route 302, but it isn't bad at all.”
