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!

The hotel stay was as wonderful as expected, as we were there a year earlier. Staff was outstanding. Extras for the room were asked for and granted quickly. My only slight complaint was the outside light outside of the room on the sidewalk side. Though it did go off later in the evening, an early sleep time would not be easily accomplished. We will return again, and the small community is wonderful.

Great views, clean rooms, friendly service and reasonable rates all spell a great experience. Our room (#4) had a wonderful view of the bay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again, and soon.

I really enjoyed the welcome the staff does, each room had the name of the guests posted outside the room. Loved the furnishings, just perfect for the time period. Katie gave a recommendatinn for a local restaurant. She was spot on as it was excellant. Breakfast was skimpy. Management might want to advertise that it's a light breakfast or continentsl style. I had to get more food at the little coffee shop down stairs. Wonderful location as Wheeler is a great place to relax and unwind.

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.
