It's a family tradition for us to stay at Carr's. We stayed in one of the older town houses a few weeks ago. Great room for the price. Very spacious. Very clean. Kitchenette came with the house. Within walking distance of downtown. Kids loved the creek. The 2nd story balcony gave us a beautiful view of Mt. Harrison/Ober Gatlinburg. Only... More

My family has returned from another great trip to Gatlinburg, Tn. Along with about 50 friends, we stay at Carr's Motel & Cottages. It has multiple size accommodations along a beautiful creek in Gatlinburg. This was the 29th year we have met our friends and had a good time together. Carr's is such a good location for us and the... More

I had researched over again all the area of Gatlinburg had to offer by way of accommodations. I wanted a place roomy for three on their annual girl's trip, a full kitchen, capable of cancellation if need be, and great reviews on TA. Carr's fit the bill. It has a great location to town that is walkable and it has... More

I almost hate to review this wonderful place for selfish reasons as this is the best kept secret in Gatlinburg. Three generations of my family have been visiting this quaint and magnificent place since the 1950s. Carr's Northside offers the best accommodations and value for a visit to Gatlinburg and the adjacent Great Smoky Mts. National Park. I don't know... More

This is a charming little property with really good prices...clean. Some rooms are located right on river and I'd recommend trying to get one of those for the best experience. I didn't. What I got was a room made for hobbits: top floor afterthought with slanted ceiling. Could not stand erect and see the bathroom mirror nor could I stand... More

Stayed at Carr's 40 years ago as a kid, so my husband and I thought we'd try staying there on a recent trip to Gatlinburg. I had perused their website before calling for reservations and I think I screwed up requesting a hotel room by the creek with a kitchenette. I think Carr's tried to give me what they thought...

I haven't been to Gatlinburg since I was a kid. This hotel kind of reminded me of the types of places we stayed as a family back then too- low priced, clean, and nothing fancy. The front desk is very helpful and gave us some tips for the must sees of our stay. For the price (70 something dollars) our... More

We have been traveling to the Gatlingurg / Pigeon Forge area for many years and somehow managed to miss Carr's. I think I found it via an internet search. Sorry to say we have wasted many years hopping from hotel to hotel in search of a home away from home. Our search has ended!!!! We stayed in what I believe... More

This was my second stay! This first was about 20 years ago for my Senior Trip. We booked a 3 bedroom cottage. It was awesome. It had 2 bathrooms which was wonderful because we had 5 adults and 2 children. The Full kitchen was great to have. Remember to bring your own coffee. My Dad forget his, but he was... More
