My partner and I just spent 5 perfect nights at the Cheston House from December 27 to January 1. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like family. Our hosts, Larry, Lawrence, and Chuck, were outstanding and were always available for questions, advice, restaurant and bar suggestions and directions. The property is impeccable and welcoming. Rooms are contemporary, immaculate... More

I booked a 4-day stay. I was greeted by an infestation of ants and insects in the bathroom area. The bedroom area had an old, musty-smelling rug on the floor that needed to be replaced. The furnishings were mis-matched and badly needed updating. The wood molding in the bath, next to the shower was warped from water and pulling away... More

My husband and I planned a weekend get away so we went to Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Chuck the manager was wonderful, friendly and a pleasure to talk with. The hotel is clean, safe, and friendly. We had a nice time and recommend this to others.

I stayed for two nights June 2015. Lovely place. Quiet. It's a small, may be 10-12 room hotel, spacious rooms including coffee making facilities, TV. It features a nice pool. Walking distance to beach. Staff were friendly and professional. Basic continental breakfast and wi-fi are included in your booking fee. Parking is ten dollars daily. The one drawback I encountered... More

I've stayed here before and is always clean, welcoming and friendly. Great location close to the beach I usually get the 1 bedroom so I have a full kitchen to cook. One reason why I like it is the clean pool that is 8 ft deep. Very nice! One thing I would suggest leave the music around pool playing at... More

We just recently stayed for about a week (Feb 18-24th). Not a bad place overall. The first few days were a bit chilly so we were able to get a portable heater from one of the staff. The staff were very friendly. A little pricey perhaps, but we were lucky they had rooms available as all of the other resorts... More

I recommend Cheston House as an ideal place to stay if you want somewhere that is not vast and sprawling. The pool is nice and always warm and everywhere like Casablanca, The Sandbar, McSorley's, The Deck (good for Breakfast) and Thai on the beach are close by. These places are not gay but if you are like us and not... More

I have to say that I am a bit surprised by several things during this stay. My stay was for two nights in a regular room, which was upgraded to a large, full one bedroom apartment free of charge. I was very much so impressed with the free upgrade. The pool and the common areas are very clean and neat,... More

My partner and I wanted to find a "staycation" place near our home. We found the Cheston House to be a great place. Very clean room, pleasant staff and just what we needed. We often have friends who visit and want to find a place for them to stay! Thank you Cheston House for a pleasant stay!!
