Will be driving from Ohio to Destin, FL. Any recommendations on safe hotel areas around Birmingham?

On the north side of Birmingham, options at exit 267 in Fultondale would work well - Fairfield, LaQuinta, Hampton, Holiday Inn Express or Comfort Suites. South of town, look at exit 246 in Pelham. Similar options there.

If you would like to stop a little sooner Athens, Al has several new hotels just off the interstate at Hwy 72. Athens is a very safe small town with no traffic issues. The newer hotels in order of age from newest to oldest are Fairfield Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites and Holiday Inn Express. Fairfield Inn just opened this spring and Hampton Inn opened last year. Holiday Inn Express has been open about 2 years if I recall correctly. There are many choices for dining at this exit as well including Cracker Barrel, Logan's Roadhouse, Lawler's BBQ, Applebee's, Ruby Tuesday and many of the fast food chains like McDonald's, Wndy's, Burger King, Krystal, Bojangles, etc.
