Good location for honeymoon

Would recommend Mon, Apr 27, 2015
We enjoyed our honeymoon at Cheston House. There were many positives and only a few negatives for staying at the 3 star resort. The amenities were really good and we loved most of what the resort had to offer. There are obvious improvements required in the accommodation area but you get the feel that the staff are on the case to make the required changes. Overall it was a pleasant stay and we enjoyed our time at the resort.

Quiet, respectable gay resort

Would recommend Tue, Jun 17, 2014
I stayed at Cheston House for about 10 days and absolutely loved it. It was in the summer, so there were not as many people there but I was looking for a quieter gay getaway. It is clothing optional on the first floor, but it was not a hookup fest and in my opinion it is very appropriate for monogamous couples who just want to socialize with other gay men. Chuck, the owner, was extremely helpful from giving me tips about local gay life to ordering delivery to the room. I had a regular room, not anything fancy. The room was comfortable and clean--but not luxurious--and the amenities in the room were very good. A sizable fridge, microwave, etc. Housekeeping was fairly diligent as well. If there were two things I would add to the place it is 1. An outdoor jacuzzi, like some other gay resorts on the beach have and 2. Heavier free weights in the exercise room (up to 50 lbs at least) for those of us who like to workout on vacation. However, these minor quibbles do not take away from the great experience. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Nightlife hint

I would rent a car. You may feel isolated on the beach without one and there is so much to see in Fort Lauderdale/Wilton Manors for the gay traveler.

An excellent choice

Would recommend Mon, Jun 9, 2014
Huge room, nice pool, very quiet, with a friendly staff. It's true that it's not the newest of hotels, but it has been well cared-for. Great location: a block off the beach, a short walk from lots of restaurants and shops, and just far enough off the strip to be quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay there again when in the area.

Sweet little oasis in the heart of Central Beach

Would recommend Sat, Feb 15, 2014
Very quiet and laid back...if you want excitement, Cheston is not for you. But if you want a beautifully landscaped, tranquil and friendly place to unwind and forget the outside world, you've found a little gem. Cheston was clean, well run and a great value. The pool was refreshing after a day at the beach. Cheston seems to cater to an older crowd, which was fine...I hate being the oldest person in a room, so it made me feel quite young!

Attractions

Sebastian Street, the gay beach, is just down Ocean Boulevard. Don't miss it!

Quiet place

Would recommend Sat, Nov 16, 2013
The hotel was quiet and relaxing. It's close to the beach, has a nice pool & adequate facilities for it's size. The rooms are well kept, but could use a bit of attention on their state of repair. All in all a nice place.

Totally gay friendly

Would recommend Tue, Aug 27, 2013
I stayed five nights and every night was great. Chuck was very helpful and efficient in everything he did for you. Even though it was the slow season, the guests there were friendly and sociable. The pool was pristine and in use constantly. I'd definitely go back there again. Thanks you guys

Very nice, but not what I was expecting.

Would not recommend Thu, Feb 28, 2013
The place was very clean, but the decor is outdated. While my stay was very nice, like staying at a friends apartment (deluxe suite), the clientele was more mature than I was anticipating. I felt like a young kid among them, and I'm 41. The continental breakfast is also lacking, not as nice as the average chain hotel. I was expecting more from a small gay owned B-N-B. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
