Something for everyone. Hotel and motel rooms, efficiencies, apartments and wonderful cabins. Have never had a bad experience here. Staff is very friendly and helpful and it's still close to the downtown of Gatlinburg, but not right in the midst of it. My husband and I have hiked most of the trails in the park, and we have really enjoyed...

We have been staying at Carr's since 1991 and love it...when we would ask our oldest son where he wanted to go for vacation, it was always Carr's. He even chose Carr's for his senior trip and took his best friends with him. It's all about family there, not just a filled room spot.

A nice quiet, family friendly place to stay.. We have been staying here for 12 years.. No where else in Gatlinburg even compares... From Family get a ways to our wedding weekend and back for our honeymoon... No where better to stay.

I have been vacationing in Gatlinburg for 30 years. Carr's is the only place my family and I have ever stayed! The creek is beautiful, the location is perfect, it's not fancy, but it's homey and comfortable. Their prices can't be beat, either. I have been as a child and now I'm taking my children! We love Carr's and can't...

My wife and I would stay at Carr's every time we went to Gatlinburg, which is about every three years and usually in September. Last visit was 2014. We have also been there for New Years a few times. Room #9 was our favorite because it was right on the stream and near the bridge over the steam, making it...

We stayed in October 2016 and this was our second time staying there, we stayed in the cottages with the kitchenette's and as the time before we loved it.

We have stayed at Carr's over and over...it is our home away from home. A beautiful short walk and you are downtown. It is off the beaten path and quiet. Best of all everyone at Carr's will bend over backwards to accommodate you. They are the nicest folks around. The rooms have always been very clean and ready when you...

My heart is saddened by the destruction of our precious Gatlinburg and of our favorite home away from home Carr's Cottages. It is our understanding that the buildings closest to the creek were spared as was the rooms on the left just as you enter the resort along with the original cabin. The rest is gone or heavily damaged. I...

I'm the third generation of my family to stay at Carr's--we have been coming here every Gatlinburg trip since the 70's. This isn't a fancy place, but it's nice, clean, and a great value for lodging that is conveniently situated close to town yet feels like you've turned back time as soon as you arrive. You also have several options...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are currently closed for a complete remodel. For those of you that had reservations for 2017... due to the loss of our office, laundry, and other structures in the recent wildfire we are currently unable to comfortably accommodate guests. However, our future is bright as we continue to move forward. We are very excited for this new chapter in our family business. We would like to thank our loyal family of guests for their love and support. The Carr Family ... more   less
