Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable accommodations, and a convenient location...what else does somebody need? All at a price that made me smile. We really enjoy the owners and their support of the local bike chapter--our primary reason for returning to Gorham regularly.

I had the pleasure of staying in the Mt. Moriah Cottage at Top Notch Inn this past weekend! The cottage was beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. I loved all of the beautiful wooden finish work done by local carpenters (artists) Jason & Kara Hunter. All of the rooms had fresh cut flowers and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

Patti and I stayed here over the 21st - 23rd of October. This was my second stay at the Top Notch, and her first. Clean, comfortable, and friendly, as expected. Close to everything we were doing, especially if you know the Gorham area (my Dad's hometown). We will be back, as the Top Notch will be my go-to choice anytime...

Top Notch Inn is easily accessible and located within walking distance from several restaurants in town. We stayed the night here after visiting Storyland and before making the trip up Mount Washington. Room was clean, it wasn't too loud, and the bed was comfortable.

Nice comfortable place near Mt Washington. Affordable and clean. We had booked for 2 nights. We stayed for a night and then had some last minute plan changes. So did not utilize the second night. We were charged only for the one night we stayed. Not many places do this. Thanks to the wonderful hotel management.

The place was spotless and the room very comfortable.... The reservation, check-in & out smooth 'with a smile'..... well located and spacious.... a fine place to stay in the area.. the 'negative'??, perhaps a bit of noisy neighbors (the next rooms... so not the inn's fault for their behaviour, but perhaps light on sound-proofing)... would we stay there again? absolutely...merci...

Great place to stay if you're looking for a comfortable & affordable no frills room. Basic motel room, very clean & quiet. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity but enjoyable drive to other areas. A couple of very good restaurants within walking distance.

Top Notch Inn is really a motel. The room we stayed in was very clean. I called first and requested a updated room so it did have bunk beds and a King size bed which was fine with me as it was so clean. The hot tub was lovely but should also be open mornings. It had a great restaurant...

From the beautiful landscaping, to the charm of my room, this is a definite plus for this area. I have stayed in different hotels in the past in the area, and have continued to look for a place that "felt like home" and I think I have found it.
