Wanted a different kind of trip this time to Gatlinburg. Wanted to include sporting events in with hiking. With the help of the owners and staff was advised to take in some weekend Basketball Tournaments and Tenn Smokies Baseball. As my experiences in the past have proven any advise the owners and staff give when asked turned out to be... More

Discovered this place about 3 years ago and we fell in love. We have stayed here at least over half a dozen times since then and everything has been perfect. Just stayed here this past weekend for my wife's birthday and love the value, the quiet, and the closeness to conveniences, shopping and attractions. Still our place to stay while... More

We satyed in a one bedroom chalet and found it to be very spacious and comfortable,the room may need a little updating but on the whole we loved it. We had a nice porch along the creek which we sat out in the evening and listened to the water from the small dam rush down like a waterfall. The place... More

First, stay in the cottages, particularly the ones on the Roaring Fork Creek. (You can listen to it all night long, even with the porch doors closed. From the outside, it looks old but well kept. Then we step into our room, and find the fireplace already primed with newspaper, kindling, and logs already for the match to light it.... More

We always stay here because of the price and the retro feel. However the price seems to have gone up while the quality has gone down. Beds in our cottage were horrible, the couch was ragged, holes in the walls, no deadbolts on the doors, It was clean but very, very worn. The couch and the chairs made me feel... More

We have stayed at Carr's before and it has always been clean and kid friendly. The price is right but it is dated, maybe the 80s? We would stay there again because you can get 2 or 3 bedrooms for a very good price.

If you are looking for a 4/5 star experience this is not it. Carr's is an older, but well maintained motel, close to the main strip in Gatlinburg. The prices are reasonable and there are various type of accommodations. Ask for a room or cabin next to the roaring creek. The sound will help you to relax and lull you... More

We had a large family gathering at Carr's in December and was not disappointed in any of the accommodations we had. One of the best features of Carr's is the choice in the accommodation where you may stay...from large 3 bedroom apartments, cottages, log cabins, and motel style rooms. All were clean and well maintained. It is a perfect spot... More
