Secluded, Yet Near the Beach and Restaurants

Checked in early Saturday evening. Staff offered me a cold beer while I was checked in. Room was immaculate and better than I expected. Many a guest were outgoing and friendly. Spent time nightswimming whilst getting to know the other guest. Extremely welcoming atmosphere. Just a five minute walk to the beach. Fifteen minute walk to the shops and restaurants along US 1A/along the beach. Luxury hotels and restaurants a few steps away from this little bit of paradise. The pool, and all of the guest house, was extremely clean and refreshing.

Walk south along US 1A about 10-15 minutes to find shops, bars, and restaurants. While you'll find several chain, touristy and suburban type places the clientele was friendly. Ask the hotel patrons for more gay-centric locations; just a cab ride away.

Very nice, but not what I was expecting.

The place was very clean, but the decor is outdated.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.

Quiet place

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.

Clean simple rooms and friendly staff.

Clean hotel and friendly staff. This is a no frills hotel. The breakfast and happy hour was very marginal compared to other gay mens resorts that I have stayed at in the past.

Sweet little oasis in the heart of Central Beach

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!

Totally gay friendly

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

An excellent choice

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.

very hospitable

Small intamate place with lots of friendly people to visit with from all over the world. Pool was great, beach was close, and attractions were easy to find. The gay bars were about a $15 dollar cab ride away but always busy with lots of friendly people to meet willing to give information about activities and things to do. I love the ability to swim in the nude with like minded people without everything being about sex (although it was available). The staff was very friendly and willing to help with all of your vacation needs.
