Cheston House Gay Resort
Reviewed 21 June 2012

I stayed at the B&B for 4 nights and from the time I checked in until I checked out the staff was GREAT! Everyone was friendly. I returned after i checked out with friends to hang out pool side with some great new friends that I met while staying there.

Room Tip: First floor so that you can be part of the fun by the pool

Just got back from a fun relaxing few days in Fort lauderdale.
The hotel was very pleasant but spare. Quiet and very friendly.
The rooms are modest (but so are the prices).
The lightly heated pool and the cozy pool area were the best parts, a block and a half from the beach. Nothing fancy, but was just what I wanted.
Skinny dipping at the pool with friendly guys hanging around and enjoying the sun after the Winter.

I often stay at the Worthington in Fort Lauderdale, but that was full and I tried Cheston House instead. I was very pleased I did, it's exceptionally friendly, nicely laid out, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It's only downside is the lack of a hot tub. Highly recommended.

We stayed in early February, weather was not ideal for us, but this place was. Very nice pool and patio area, the rooms were great, very clean and neat. this was our 1st visit to this resort, but will not be our last. Chuck who either owns or manage's the place is great to make sure all the details are attended to. 1 block off the beach, just an all around enjoyable stay.

okay, the weather was lousy so we weren't able to take advantage of all the property could offer. the staff were efficient and friendly and made us feel welcome. it would be great to have a hot tub for the cool evenings and the pool was not heated enough on most nights. the rooms were clean, but there was no tub to settle into.

What an amazing experience... we stayed at Cheston House before embarking on a cruise from Port Everglades. The staff are personable and helpful. The guests were friendly as well, with no attitude. The grounds were well kept, with some pretty hibiscus flowers in bloom. Our suite was spacious and comfortable (the interior was a bit dated and not perfectly kept up, but that didn't impact our stay). As other reviewers mentioned, free happy hour drinks certainly made us happier.

The outstanding thing about Cheston House is really the service. The staff were helpful beyond measure, never rude or too busy for us, and even invited us to come back at no charge after our cruise to hang out during our long layover before our departing flight. They really made our stay and our trip much easier than it would have been had we stayed somewhere else.

We just visited Cheston House again and, as always, had a wonderful stay. The hotel is still clean, fun, inviting, and just a great home in Fort Lauderdale. Not to mention that our room had THE most comfortable bed! The fitness room is new, and the property is beautifully maintained by the congenial manager Chuck and his staff, Earl and Andrew. They always go out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, and do lots of extras along the way. The other big plus is the clientele. Not pretentious, no "attitude", just really nice guys from all over the country who enjoy meeting and getting to know other guests. We love our times of leisurely days, having wine and snacks by the pool with friends each afternoon/evening, late dips in the pool. It all makes for a relaxing and friendly vacation. You can't beat Cheston House in Fort L.!
