Almost anything in the main Hoover area is safe. Don't know where you're coming from, but both 65 and 459 go through Hoover. Embassy Suites: 2960 John Hawkins Pkwy, Birmingham, AL 35244 Courtyard: 1824 Montgomery Hwy, Hoover, AL 35244 Holiday Inn: 2901 John Hawkins Pkwy, Hoover, AL 35244 All in a nice area, and there are places to eat nearby. Plenty of gas stations for refueling (including a Costco with a gas station if you're a member). Walmart is REALLY close to those and a Target is fairly close for supplies if needed.
