I was looking for a place right on the main strip and unfortunately this was a bit farther away than hoped. But the desk clerks were very nice and helpful - let us check in early - room was a bit dated but clean - could sit by the stream outside - nice ... HOWEVER - the shower was a... More

This place was probably amazing in 1960. But in 2014 it's was a little bit of a let down. Got a 2 bedroom apartment it was clean but had an awful smell. Bedrooms do not have TVs in them. I think this place would be a gold mine if it was fixed up. We did enjoy the pool an play... More

I always stay here when I go to Gatlinburg Tennessee. We stayed in a two bedroom townhouse that gave us the space we needed. The price is very reasonable and you are just a short walk from the main strip. Also for your convenience you will be on the trolley route. Give Carr's a chance the next time you visit... More

We stayed at Carrs a couple of years ago in a creekside cottage which we loved. This time only the Townhouse Apt was available for our family of 5. There are a lot of pros to staying at Carrs - bigger rooms for our larger family, reasonable price, we can walk to town a couple times a day, the pool... More

My family has been going to Carr's for 40 years, and now when my grown up daughters go, this is where they go too. Other than the 15 motel rooms that are near the office, every room, cottage, or suite has its own special character. The rooms along the stream are tremendous as you go to sleep listening to the...

My family and I have been going to Carr's since 1977. Seems as if each stay gets better and better. The last 7 years I make at least 2 - 3 trips to Carr's. The owners and staff are the best bunch I and my family has ever delt with in the Motel / Hotel industry. Last year my Mother's... More

I have stayed here twice, once in Spring 2012 and again last week. I rented an apartment creek side the first time and a cottage the second. My first experience was great! I was pleased with the amount of space and I was ok that it was old. This time I was not as happy. Our first night we discovered... More

Of course, we care about our customers and their comfort during their stay. The problems that were reported during the stay were promptly attended to with care, consideration and apologies. Regarding the double charge to the credit card, there was a charge for the accommodations and a separate charge of a different amount for Dollywood tickets that the guest purchased... More

Other places had rooms, however, this had the king we wanted, on the CREEK, and the prices were spot on!!! If you want room service, it's there, but we don't do too much to the room, so we just exchanged towels, and left it at that. We just really needed to get away and not be tethered by other meands,...
