The Courtyard in Downtown Decatur is not doing enough to ensure the health of staff and visitors. Visitors are not required to wear masks in public areas, there is little to no signage regarding limiting elevator occupants to families or a single rider. I witnessed no extra cleaning of public places. We stayed at a Hampton Inn and Suites that did an outstanding job on all points previously mentioned, there is a Hampton Inn and Suites located right next door. I would recommend lodging there if your priority is staying healthy and safe.

We stayed in a wheelchair accessible room that was extremely difficult to get in & out of because the door was way too heavy to open & close. Door closing device needs adjustment or changed completely as it is more than five pounds of pull IMO

The walls are so thin I could hear everything around me, when the people next door came back at 2 am I felt like they barged into my room. The staff was super nice though.

The property was lovely. It was contemporary and clean. The noise level is a little high, but that is a design flaw.
