My sons and I are going on a cruise in June out of South Carolina. We will be driving from our home in Illinois to the port in Charleston. Mapping it out, it looks like Knoxville is a good point for staying the night, as we don't want to drive it all in one day.
I am looking at possibly pricelining the hotel - but need to find out about the various areas. We are looking at Downtown Knoxville, Knoxville East, and Knoxville North. Are any of these areas to be avoided or would anyone recommend one over the other? Also, if part of the area is good and part of the area not so good, can anyone offer hotels maybe to stay away from or look for in particular?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
