Old Wheeler Hotel

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!

We booked one night. Then we called in sick and stayed another. Great staff. Nice atmosphere. It was nice meeting the other guests in the breakfast room over coffee, fresh fruit, and an English muffin or bagel.

A sweet old hotel

I read about the Old Wheeler Hotel on the "Travel Oregon" website and I'm happy to say it lived up to write up. The hotel is beautifully furnished with antiques. Every room is unique. I loved the piano parlor public area. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was beautifully renovated. Water pressure that would be the envy of many new hotels. Everything was cleaner than clean. I had mentioned that I was celebrating a birthday so the owner gave me a free room upgrade. My only quibble was the rather unimaginative breakfast. Nothing wrong with it, just not exciting.

Wonderful place to relax, unwind. Multiple visits and will be back

Return stay, love the setting, charm of hotel and rooms. The most pleasant staff, clean rooms, the best place to escape to for relaxation and solitude. Breakfast was better than most continental spreads, a good start to the day.

I did do this review earlier, but I'm happy to do one again. Love the Wheeler Hotel. It is comfortable, the view of the bay is superb, the breakfast fabulous. The room we stayed in is beautifully decorated and very cozy on a rainy night. The DVD selection is awesome. I have family history in the area and have visited Wheeler many times over my lifetime. It's delightful to have such a wonderful place to stay in my dad's hometown.

Elegant, comfy and cozy

We had a lovely room with a wonderful view of the bay. Very comfortable bed. A great selection of DVD movies. The breakfast selections were very good. We had everything we needed or wanted. Totally worth the price. I wish we'd had time to stay longer.
