I am a big fan of restored roadside Motels. These American classic bring back many fond memories of family travels in the 60's and early 70s before the Big Boxes started popping up. We have stayed in more than a few on our travels out west cruising Route 66 but Top Notch has been our best find! Congratulations to the owners who brought this property back to life. Very clean and comfortable room for our 09-01-22 stay on a long trip back from Québec's beautiful Gaspé Peninsula to West Virginia. Wish we had stayed longer but we will be back. Saw a few complaints about road noise but no complaints from us. We were two rooms in from the pool and so very close to the road. Never heard anything to complain about. Very much appreciated the low noise A/C-Heater and not the noisy Big Box clunkers. Think they were Spits but can't remember the brand. Nothing but quality here and a big bonuses too. One bonus was J's Restaurant right next door. Everyone recommend it and we are sure glad they did. Excellent dinner including 2 local pints, 2 red wines, Calamari, 1 Cesar Salad, 1 bowl local Clam Chowder, 1 fish sandwich and 1 beautiful Salmon dinner all for about $75. 2nd Bonus was breakfast at Eastern Depot just a short drive down up the road. Bountiful breakfast to fuel the day and kept me content until dinner. Absolutely a perfect stay We will be back

We've been visiting Gorham on a regular basis on our way to the east coast for about 20 years. This town, over the years, seems to now be over-run with ATVs, Side X Sides and dirt bikes blasting up the main street. Local bylaw legislators need to re-examine this problem, and yes, it is a problem. As far as this Inn, it is still Top Notch.. Great front desk, spotless room, close to everything, and our 137 King room was steps away from an excellent restaurant.

We chose this place because it looked clean and quiet enough before a hike in the presidential mountains. The room was clean and had the normal amenities. The fridge did not have a freezer (just a note, not a deal breaker.) loved the pool (very warm!) and hot tub to use. Pool towels were at the pool! Really nice stay.

This was a very good location for our visit to the area. We wanted to do some hiking and visit Mt Washington. The Inn was central to everything we wanted to do and essentially met our needs. Dustin greeted us when we arrived and was terrific. Very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were fine and they play nice music in the yard area for people to sit and relax. There is also a nice fire pit that is lit each night. Our only issue was the wifi - I don't mean to be picky - but if you are going to list it as available make sure the signal is boosted sufficiently.

Our king room was recently renovated, and the bathroom is especially nicely done. There is no breakfast provided. There is a nice center lawn area with picnic tables and corn hole games.This place is busy, and is popular with ATV people and their trucks and trailers, but it was quiet. There is also a small pool. We walked to a nearby ice cream place, and also to the local BBQ which was good. We passed on Mt Washington because of the high price to go and the cold winds. Instead we took a lovely hike by a river and drove the scenic drive. We are very glad we stayed in Gorham instead of Conway, which looked like a zoo. We ate in the outdoor seating of a newish brewery nearby and it had good food and beer.

Room did have working fridge and microwave. However the bed Felt like it had been used as a trampoline. It sunk in the middle. There was no table in the room to eat my food. Location and parking were good.

I am usually skeptical about small motels and tend not to choose them as a place to stay for travel; however, I was SO pleasantly surprised about The Top Notch Inn. Excellent front desk service, very clean room, great little pool, and a sense of safety and security were had by us recently. The town of Gorham itself is a bit run down and several empty store fronts but this little motel was a gem. We stayed here on our way to Maine. The Glen House and Mount Washington are a 10 minute drive away so drive the Auto Road and have dinner at The Glen House.
