Great spot for a romantic weekend.

We had a great time. The Cheston is Clean, Simple, Relaxing, Fun, Tropical. Which is just what we were looking for. My bf and I wanted a romantic get away and we loved our experience at this place. We stayed at the Cheston for 3 nights in the middle of July. What we loved: This place is a small oasis right next to the hot, busy Ft Lauderdale beachfront. Our room was clean with modern furnishings and provided everything we need for our stay. The staff was very professional and helpful. The guesthouse was very quiet overall (few rooms=few guests) - which allowed us relax and enjoy each other even more. There were always a couple friendly guests at the clean heated pool, for those times we wanted to take a dip or be social. Note: having no families/kids made a HUGE difference in the relaxation and enjoyment of the pool - if felt like it was just for us. The pool area is pretty beautiful and well maintained; lots of palms and tropical vegetation to help transport your mind to vacation mode. Note: This is a small, older mom & pop (well pop & pop in this case) type business, not the Airport Hilton. Its well taken care of with quaint charm, but not plastic mass produced perfection. Set your expectations of what you are booking and allow yourself to enjoy the magic of what this place offers - we certainly did.
Great place to rest and work

An excellent place to stay for leisure and remote work. The beach is close, but if you prefer calm, you can enjoy the pool and the intimacy of the resort. There is a new building in construction, just hoping it will not affect too much this wonderful experience. We had a big room with everything needed allowing me to work, whereas my husband enjoyed the beach.
Filthy, don't waste your money

The bathroom was filthy when we checked in. When it was brought to the general manager's attention he got combative with me. If I was managing the property I would have been embarrassed. The room was finally cleaned properly later that day. I have stayed here many times before but after this I will never step foot back into that property. With proper management the place would be a pleasure to stay at. It's apparent that others feel the same way, we were the only ones there for our 4 night stay.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here at Cheston House. There’s a few things that would have improved our experience that need to be mentioned. From day 1 of our stay. The pool was disgusting- the skimmers were not functioning. We brought this to the attention of the live in emergency contact and was told it was working. It wasn’t we have a pool at home and it definitely wasn’t working and you could tell that just by looking at the debris in the pool and the lack of water being pulled into the skimmer. We and another guest took liberty to clean as much debris out of the pool using the net as possible just so we could feel comfortable getting into the water. The other thing to be noted is one particular couple- claiming to be guest at CH every weekend- had sexual relations in and beside the pool the ENTIRE time we were there. From BJs to full on intercourse right out in the open. This was absolutely appalling as there are family friend hotels with views right into the pool area. A clothing optional hotel does not mean have poolside sex in broad daylight. We were reprimanded for having a glass bottle by the pool but the two guest who go there every weekend had glass mikes hard lemonade bottles by the pool the entire weekend and nothing was said to them. As first time guest we definitely noticed this. The only reason for the 3 stars was our room was clean upon check-in, they made it easy to check-in after hours, and they had chilled wine in the fridge for us when we got there as it was a trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Even though they waited until we were back home to charge my card 28 dollars for said wine. It was nice that they had it chilled and ready to go when we arrived at the hotel.
Clean, comfortable and great staff!

Our second stay at this resort and we would absolutely stay here again given the opportunity. I will say the charges for a later, 3PM check out can be a little excessive but on vacation you make decisions based on comfort and convenience so, they got me. The pool heated pool is heated and very clean. Sometimes these older resorts defer maintenance and are hard to keep clean but these guys do a good job. They keep everything very clean and you can tell tell they paint and keep up on maintenance, it really is a very nice place. Steven, Larry & Mark are all fantastic and the hospitality top notch!
