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

very basic, no attitude, staff is great. rooms are reasonable and adequate. best part is laying by pool all rooms open toward the pool area. secluded, clothing optional. clientele more of your 40-60 years old. you wont find too many twinks, or muscle guys or attitudes. close to beach, and to the action not far from wilton manor. always stay...

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!!

Our experience at the Cheston House was fantastic. When we arrived, Chuck checked us in and could not have been friendlier. Not only did the process go exceptionally smoothly, he offered advice on where to go for shopping, dining, beaches, and anything else we could want. The rooms were comfortable. The other guests were friendly and much time was spent... More

We stayed here last year was great. This year the rooms are not kept as well. The service has went way down. The staff are unfriendly this time around. Will not stay here again. For the price better go across the street. The owner of Cheston is a str8 woman who doesn't care about the building.

I had a very nice room overlooking the pool. For a small room I found it quite large with lots of extras for the price, I thought, such as TV, DVD player, microwave and small fridge, coffee maker, Ironing board (no iron but I'm sure the friendly staff would have provided one had I needed one). I could not believe... More
