      Filthy conditions

      The bathroom was filthy especially the sink. I brought this up to the general manager's attention and rather being apologetic he became combative. If I was managing the place I would have been embarrassed and taken care of the problem ASAP. Perhaps it's time for the owners to bring someone in that actually has pride and cares for the place and knows how to treat guests right. I have stayed here many times over the years. This was definitely my last. I will never set foot in that place again. Now it makes sense why the place was deserted while we stayed there.

      DO NOT STAY HERE!!

      This place is an absolute disgrace. I booked in advance however I Arrived at 8:30 p.m. to find out that they stop checking in at 7. It was my last resort at that moment and I was basically left to sleep in my car while a $540 hotel reservation went to waste for absolutely no reason. Then after trying to reschedule my reservation, I find out that the hotel is banned me for absolutely no reason.

      Small, quiet pearl of a gem. Just right for a laid back respite from the rat race.

      Great place for a safe/clean escape

      Felt welcomed by Chuck and staff the moment I arrived. Property reminds me of an old-school mom & pop beach hotel that has been recently updated with well maintained grounds. It has lots of character and includes many thoughtful extras for guests. Great location for everything yet felt like I escaped the world while on property. Very relaxed environment and friendly guests. Property has gone above & beyond in cleaning and practices for COVD-19.

      Good value - great Guest Service

      The staff is super nice - I was able to check in earlier and all went well. During my stay there was a tropical storm and the tram left a flashlight and bottled water for me just in case - nice touch. The hotel is a little outdated but comfortable. Due to COVID-19 there is no breakfast so plan your meals accordingly.

      A fine place to stay.

      The Cheston House is a perfectly fine place to stay, but as with all places like this, it can be dependent on the others who are staying there. Unfortunately, this was a pretty dead period so it was pretty much just a place to lay my head down. That said, the greeter was very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing, especially when the weather is good.
