Its the third year we've stayed there and it has been great every time. The rooms are very clean and the bed just lets you fall asleep almost as soon as you lay your head down. The staff is very polite and helpful. If your up in the area for trail riding your ATV or traveling though the mountains this...

We paid $175.00 for a room with thin walls and some bugs biting my sister. There was a loud noise in the middle of the night that woke me up. We will not come back for the price they ask. Thought the staff was friendly and helpful but the breakfast wasn't served when we left at around 6:30 am. All...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We have examined the room that you stayed in and have found no issues. We apologize for your disatisfaction. We do not serve breakfast at our hotel, choosing instead to offer discounts at local restaurants. We find that our guests prefer this to the typical "continental" breakfast served at other...

Upon a visit to this hotel last week my husband and I ended up in a room (The Jefferson) that had both a landing and stairs (although the website says it is "located on the first floor"). Unfortunately the gentleman who checked us in did not tell us this upon our arrival nor when given the key to our room....

Nice location. Room was decent. Bed was uncomfortable. Check in was easy. Staff was helpful. Room just had a deep cleaning and the windows were left open. We found this out once it got cold. Also had a smoker outside our room with the window open as we were checking in. MAD!

Chicago, Illinois
Reviewed 16 October 2016

Rooms were old and tired and in need of a serious update. Passably clean, but really just a roadside motel. Don't be fooled by the word "Inn!" Uncomfortable beds and neighbor noise made this a "not coming back" experience.

We stayed here on our way through Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. We were very satisfied with the accommodations. Top Notch is convenently located in proximity of Mt. Washington and close to good restaurants in Town.

Arrived after a long drive and although early was given access to the rooms which helped. Decor was a little dated but rooms were clean and functional. Overall thought the cost was a little expensive but in keeping with other similar businesses. Good but not great.

Room was not very clean! Dresser drawer had hair/crumbs, dusty/crumbs underneath tray that holds coffee maker, previous guest hair stuck in hairdryer, no trash bags in trash cans, room has musty/moldy wet smell. (Didn't help my husbands allergies). Wifi not good, hard connecting to websites, ended up using phone data instead. Price per night was not worth it!

The bathroom is recently remodeled and quite nice. The mattress squeaked but was comfortable. The staff at the desk was pleasant and efficient. But this is an older motel and feels like it. The walls are thin so we heard our neighbors. My wife did not like the "feel" of the room. In addition there was a moldy smell that...
