I work in Gatlinburg but live out of county and have a long drive to work. Some times I stay Overnight in town to cut down on driving. Sevier county is suffering from a staffing shortage due to covid laziness and free government checks and needing every worker we can get to be at work. I stayed here last night and was going to stay for a second night. There are still three rooms showing available so I was going to book for another night. I called the front desk and was told to call back at 9am and they would bill me. Five minutes later I received a phone call letting me know that I was a local and that because of this they would not be renting me the room. I don’t understand why my money isn’t as good as someone from out of state. The guy was also very rude last night when I was checking in. I guess he isn’t as grateful as I would be if I had moved here from India and been given a free hotel by the U.S. Government!

Carr’s family no longer owned ! Prices are much higher. The hot tub was always cold and never smelled of choline, same with the pool. The owners and workers were rude, all except the only American lady working there. They would barely acknowledge you! The rooms could be cleaner. Ceiling fans caked with dust. Water in the cottage was burning hot! We stayed for a week in July, paying roughly $2000; for curiosity, I placed a week in September to see the rates- they want to charge me $3,000 for it! These are when rates are supposed to be down. So be aware rates are higher, pool not as clean ( I never seen them add chemicals), hot tub always cold and dirty, workers not friendly or welcoming. Thusly, we will not be returning. This is sad, seeing a came here as a child. Hoping they sell out and someone else takes over, and Carr’s becomes what it used to be. 💔

Even after 11 years since our last Smokey Mountain visit Carrs is still a nice place to stay Our creekside cabin #406 was clean upon arrival & we were allowed to check-in early since our room was ready. Two comfy queen size beads, a nice kitchenette with fullsize refrigerator, oven & stove, & all the basics you need to prepare easy quick meals. The best part is our place was creekside & you can sit & listen to the Roaring Fork creek from your private balcony. There is a swimming pool, laundry, playground, & pavilion on the property. There are numerous types of accommodations as well. Our particular room needed a little updating as the carpet needed cleaning or replacement. The bathtub/shower drained very slowly & the toilet "stuck running" once but it was an easy fix. There are new owners here & it's not the original family anymore. I feel confident that these issues will be addressed in a short time. The staff seemed friendly mostly & helpful.

My husband stayed at Carr's when he was young, so we chose to stay there with three of our children 25 years ago again. It was a pleasant experience. We decided to go again this summer and stayed in room 500 by the stream. I was worried because of all the not-so-pleasant reviews. First of all, the stream was awesome! I opened my windows to the sound daily. The location was extremely peaceful. It was walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg, but you felt a million miles away. Our room was very basic, but had everything we needed including floor to ceiling windows looking onto the stream. We had a mini-fridge, sink, microwave, toaster, coffeepot, and some dishes. There was a private deck with a table and chairs and we could park our car right next to our room. We went into the mountains daily and went downtown to eat. I would definitely go back to Carr's.
