Let me start by saying I consider myself very picky, especially when it comes to updates and cleanliness. I like things CLEAN and seriously updated, like 'design magazine, super cute' updated. This Inn was PERFECT! It is adorably updated (as in, I want to copy their design ideas). The rooms are basic, but very well done. Beds are so comfy.... More

The place was fine. They renovated a couple old inns into the Chequit. The rooms are fairly bare-boned but clean. The plumbing is loud and so are the AC units. The suites are not worth it - there is nothing wrong with them really, but they are priced at Four Season rates and all you get are a couple converted... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and loved this little inn. The rooms are clean and simple with beautiful wood floors and extremely comfy bed. The front desk is very helpful recimpending different beaches which are all just a 5-10 minute drive. The beaches were great and very relaxing. The continental breakfast was lovely and homemade. The inn has a great... More

We booked a two night stay mid week in July, a Wednesday and Thursday. We read that the Inn was newly renovated. The cost for this stay was reasonable for a summer booking in July. The staff was friendly and helpful, sharing some of the latest do and don't about the Island. The rooms were a decent size with one... More

After a three night stay at this incredibly charming inn, we didn't want to leave. The staff was so kind and helpful (they gave us great tips for where to go to the beach, sites to visit on the island, and where to eat), and made sure we were well-taken care of. Upon arrival, we learned they had upgraded our... More

I can't say enough nice things about The Chequit. I would like to begin with the staff, they were all helpful, sweet, not overbearing and yet so in in-tune with our needs it was astounding.

I stayed here for a 2-night weekend, and I felt that the rooms were redone nicely. Great products, clean yet well-appointed. The turkish towels were a nice touch. I also loved the homemade, buffet style breakfasts on the porch. The ambiance of the lobby was great at night.
