We stayed here once again on our annual trip to Gatlinburg. We really like this place. It is nothing fancy but has everything that suits our needs. The place is clean, the people are very friendly, and the price is a very good value. We spent more time at the pool this trip since it was a bit hotter than... More

The property is away from all of the noise and congestion! -but just a short walk to town. Another option is the trolley. Our motel room was right on the creek -very relaxing and laid back. The office staff was very nice and helpful. This property has so many lodging options - something for everyone. This was our 1st visit... More

We have been coming to Carr's for years now. We always get the same rooms. We love it here in my happy place. The front desk staff is amazing. I love stopping in and chatting with them. I am so happy the Carr's kept this place in the family and don't change the feel. They do upgrades when possible but... More

Stayed Fri-Mon Labor Day weekend 2016. All the staff on grounds were friendly and helpful. This time we stayed in the motel. Tho a little outdated, it was really clean. Bed was comfy, great water pressure, and water stayed really warm. Our room had a back patio with a stream running behind. Had grills and a picnic bench. In walking... More

My family comes to Carr's every summer, and have for the last 10 years. We come in a large group - 11 and are able to get reasonably priced, clean rooms with a kitchen and connected to each other. This is not a 5 star resort, but we really appreciate the simplicity of it and the service provided. The pool... More

Over the past 25 years, I've stayed at Carrs several times. Their townhouse type rental has been the nicest. This time, I stayed in a room that I was in about 20 yrs ago. It had the same wallpaper and same curtains. And I believe the same jacuzzi because the corner was busted. The furniture is getting old. One of... More

It was really clean and a good price for the motel part. It's right along a creek. It has an out door pool and hot tub. There is an area along the river you can have bonfires and hangout. It's away from all the noise and crowds and away from downtown which is nice if you are there to explore... More

Found this place in May of 2015, we have been back four times since, very nice quiet little place and has lots of things for the kids to do. Every room we have stayed in has been great. You really can't beat it for the price. We are very pleased and will obviously be back!

My family and I absolutely loved this motel. We stayed in room 201 of the motel section which is one of the smallest rooms they offer. There was plenty of room for my family of four (two adults, a 9yo and a 4yo). The price was an incredible deal for the location and the property itself which is only about... More
