The Cheston House is a gem amongst the high rise and overpriced hotels on Ft. Lauderdale Beach. You have access many local restaurants and beach within walking distance, and a short drive to Wilton Manors. The two-level resort-style motel echos from the 50s with charm and grace with its stylish staircase to the upper floor, and each room facing the pool area. The pool and the grounds are kept spotless and guests can feel free to be nude, if they choose, as there is a high wooden privacy fence and gardens that surround the premises. It's a great atmosphere for making casual or intimate friends.
I arrived late on a Thursday night, but my access was provided, my room key and instructions were left for me at the office. I reserved a room with a king bed and expected a standard motel room. I discovered that I was given a king suite with a sitting room, 2 TVs, a changing area, fridge, microwave and bath that had a shower big enough for two. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the linens were fresh and very clean, as was the entire suite. The AC provided much relief from the heat and humidity from the heat of August, and the ceiling fan was excellent too. I never ran out of clean towels for the bath or the pool/beach, as they had a separate supply for both.
Each morning I enjoyed a continental breakfast and was greeted by the manager. They were very friendly and helpful. They let me use the pool and shower after I checked out as I had a late flight Sunday. I want to return!
I suggested they add charging USB outlets, as their available outlets are sparse and have the WiFi available in the rooms in addition to the outside.
I recommend the Quarterdeck for a good sports bar that's not too far away, and the Red Cow for excellent BBQ.
