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

We arrived and were shocked at the quality of repair in the rooms. The aircon was very noisy and vibrated. It was only held in with foam and balanced in place, so in order to sleep we had to turn it off. Due to the heat, we put on the ceiling fan at a low speed which made a clicking... More

A nice little gay guest house. Very friendly staff, very friendly guests. If you want a quiet vacation or a party vacation, you can have it here. Chuck, Lawrence and Larry are incredibly nice guys and will make you feel welcome at their place.

Next door are two other establishments but this is more of a party crowd that goes 24h ..... Room was simply furnished but it did not bother us at... More

From the time we booked this place till check out it was perfect. We checked in late and our room was waiting for us. Nice clean room. We opted to upgrade to a suite which gave us more room. Daily cleaning of the room was good. The courtyard/pool area was nice and quite. Very relaxing atmosphere. The pool is open... More

We opted to stay at the Cheston when it was decided to come out to Fort Lauderdale on a whim, so in all honesty, we didn't do our research as we usually do. We both thought that owner Chuck was not as friendly as the reviews I see here indicate, and when we've stayed elsewhere, we recognize an owner who... More

We stayed at the resort in the first week of July. Whilst it was quiet, we really enjoyed the courteous and helpful staff in the accommodation at CH. The resort is small but clean and provides all the needed amenities (including suntan lotion if you forget to bring your own). Chuck and Co. are professional in their daily task but... More
