Due to the coronavirus we knew services would be limited but was told trash and towels would be taken care of. We had no trash bags, no cups for drinks after getting ice and not a very clean room (surrounding the mini fridge and the shower/bathroom floor) While returning to our room one night our door had been propped open ALL day using the metal swing bar that you can lock the door with. Also no trash or towels were ever taken care of so why was anyone in our room?

A great experience to be here, even as they go through renovations. We had the room with the king bed and sofa, it was exactly what we were expecting. Really glad we chose this location.

This hotel is very nice. The front staff are very welcoming as you are checking in. The rooms are super roomy and very clean. The pool was also clean and everyone enjoyed it. The hotel sits close to beaches (only a few miles away), near grocery stores ,movie theaters, and sooo many restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel.

Do not go to Courtyard by Marriott Gulf Shores Cra

Pros: It was close to the beach
Cons: Hotel front desk staff was AWFUL.
Horrible experience. Front desk staff was rude and entirely disinterested in helping make the situation better.

Not what it was 3-4 years ago

Pros: Nice staff.
Cons: Updates needed, regular maintenance needed.
Location: Public beach was several miles away. Lots of shopping near hotel. Movie theatre right next door to hotel. Plenty places to eat.
This hotel has taken a quick turn for the worse since we last stayed 3-4 years ago. There was mold on the shower curtain, the caulking in the bathroom was cracked/missing, and the toilet flush handle broke on 2nd or 3rd day of stay. The cleaning staff did not clean our room, make our beds, or give us fresh/clean towels and wash cloths on 2nd or 3rd day. The front desk offered to move us to a new room down the hall, which meant we had to pack all of our vacation bags, items, etc. up, and move them to the new room ourselves after a long day at the beach. The toilet handle in the new room broke on the 2nd day (I fixed it myself, but the cheap, plastic handle arm had broken, so the hotel had to call the maintenance guy back to the hotel after 5:00 p.m. to put a new, metal arm on the toilet, which worked just fine). The trash cans outside the hotel were always full, as though no one ever emptied them. I sent an e-mail to the property management company while we were there to tell them about these problems, and they never did respond. The staff was very nice and tried to work with us in correcting the problems, but it just seems the property was not as nice, as it was when we stayed there several years prior. I would not recommend this hotel to others at this time.
