A charming, historic boutique hotel in the heart of beautiful downtown Wheeler, Oregon (population 350). Lovingly restored, the Old Wheeler Hotel offers stunning views of Nehalem Bay. Come relax in this tranquil setting. You can snuggle up and be pampered in one of our beautifully appointed rooms with sumptuous bed linens, thick towels, and antique furniture. Gaze out at blue herons, eagles, and herds of elk that routinely inhabit the landscape. Spend a day fishing or kayaking on the bay. Rent a motor boat from the marina across the street and cruise up the river to the town of Nehalem, or down the river to the Pacific ocean! Browse Wheeler's unique antique stores, art galleries, and gift shops. Excellent restaurants and shopping are just steps away from our front door!

Off the track, easily missed and understated, this gem of a hotel is a grand and sweet surprise. Friendly, very clean, it is a step back in time with tasteful decor. Once there , you find that there is fishing and boating right across the street. Only 2 restaurants in town but a nice coffee shop downstairs and Nehalem and Rockaway beach are close by for more restaurants. Two antique stores steps away where you will get lost in the endless rooms and certainly find some treasure to take home. We will return!

This was my second stay, just one night each time (while driving from Seattle to Sacramento), and I wish I could have stayed longer. The hotel, the rooms, the furnishings, the many amenities (computer, DVDs, books, common room, breakfast, piano), and the setting and view are first rate. The sunset (both times) was glorious. The owner/staff could not be more friendly and helpful. I hope I have an opportunity to stay there again.
It was a pleasure having you stay here at the Old Wheeler Hotel; hopefully we will see you again in the near future. Thanks again! OWH Staff

I enjoyed my stay at The Old Wheeler Hotel. Continental breakfast is just that, but you can access the refrigerator all day. bed was comfortable and hotel was quiet.
Thank you for choosing us to stay with us, we really appreciate the positive feedback. Hope to see you come back someday real soon. Old Wheeler Hotel

We really enjoyed our stay at the Wheeler Hotel. We had the Honeymoon Suite, that had a Jacuzzi in the room and a wonderful view from large windows looking toward the bay. It's a great place to view all that's going on in Wheeler. The staff was especially friendly and knowledgeable about the area, for anything you might want to do or see. We would definitely stay there again!

What is not to love about the "Old Wheeler Hotel"? From the decor and the amazing view to be seen from the "commons" room. It has all the comforts of mom's house with a cozy, romantic twist going back in time. Bright and cheery rooms, match the service provided by the staff, always a smile and to see if we need anything at all. The movie selection is great!! Some oldies but goodies with popcorn if you like. Everything is walking distance, we never drove once after we arrived. I enjoyed watching the elk on the island just as much as the champagne and jacuzzi tub in our quiet cozy room. My hats of to Katie and Raine for a amazing getaway!!

One of the most charming I have stayed. Katie and her staff treat u like family. I went to relax and shop and I was not disappointed. Dining choices weren 't great in town but there are some wonderful restaurants in nearby towns. I will be returning soon.

I enjoyed a lovely stay at the Old Wheeler for my birthday. My boyfriend and I stayed in RM 5. The view was wonderful. The area was quiet and peaceful. Most beaches are just a short drive away and being able to walk around the town was really neat. We even picked up some little antiques at the antique store next door. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. If you stay here you should try to get a room with a tub, very worth the relaxing jets! I had heard this hotel was haunted before I stayed and to my surprise we did encounter a few pleasant surprises. I won't explain to much, you'll have to come stay yourself. This place is more than worth they money. If you are looking for a quiet little relaxing stay please pick the Old Wheeler!

We had not heard of your hotel. We were trying to find a place near Nehalem Bay State Park, where some of our family were camped. Most places were booked & I am glad they were. What we found, when we arrived, was a most pleasant surprise. We have stayed in our share of Bed & Breakfast places & yours is definitely up at the top of the list. You have done a beautiful job with the interior & the exterior, with all of the pots of flowers adds a lot to the whole picture. The view from the breakfast room is great. Being able to look at so many pics of the way things used to be is great fun for me. The room we stayed in was great & most of all .... it was SO clean !! That's the thing that we appreciate the most. I wish we had been staying another night, but, you were booked. Obviously, you & your hotel are liked by MANY !We don't travel a lot, but, when we head your way, again, we will think of you first. ............... Berni Malone
