Wonderful stay. Don't let stormy weather keep you away. The rooms have everything you need for a great family or couples getaway in any weather.

We loved the room and the view of the water. Just breathtaking.

The room was very nice, the bed was super comfortable and it was a lot of space. The atmosphere was perfect and the grounds are beautiful. The" partial" bay room was a little misleading though, to see anything we had to go out on the deck and crane our heads. We would stay again!

Wheeler On The Bay, Is a fantastic place to stay, Tracy went above and beyond to make sure my stay was comfortable and making sure I have everything I needed. Being right on the bay, was awesome to sit on their dock and watch the sunset and fishing activity. I LOVE THIS PLACE!! Thank you Tracy and Pat Kris

It was our first time to Wheeler, from the Wheeler on the bay lodge to the quaint little town, the stay was perfect!! I was a smitten kitten with the Inn and the town of Wheeler! We will be back again!

We very much enjoyed our stay and the Wheeler on The Bay Lodge. The rooms were very comfortable, well maintained and included a small refrigerator, microwave and table for dining. We had a chance to speak with both the husband and wife who own the lodge. Both provided excellent information about the facility as well as the surrounding community. We were a bit skeptical when we first drove in as the rooms are ground floor units with parking in the middle, more like a hotel. That was quickly put to rest when we went inside the room and saw they had everything we needed. The lodge is on Nehalem Bay which is immediately adjacent to a boat ramp which is well utilized by local fisherman. There are restaurants next door and across the street from the lodge. This is not a typical B&B as breakfast consists of pre-packaged items or fresh fruit which you are given the night before to prepare, heat or unwrap yourself in your room. The selections include a breakfast sandwich, oatmeal, pastries, juice, fruit and other easily prepared items. Overall this was a very good value for the area

a lovely place to stay. the owners are very warm and caring and the town is a great find. the one resturant in town, a very intoment small place with great food was a gem find.
4.6 on September 24, 2016
We stayed here while in the area for a golf tournament in Manzanita. Wish we had more time because it was an adorable place. We had a unit on the bay. Would love to come back when we don't have anywhere else to be. Customer service was outstanding. The only downside to the place is parking and getting out is tricky, especially when there were a couple of big trucks in the lot.
5 on September 22, 2016
We always try and plan a yearly retreat to wheeler on the bay! The staff is amazing, rooms clean, view is awesome! Plus you get to kayak and don't even need to drive anywhere. You can just launch off right there!

We had the Honeymoon Room, we loved it. It was a great room, clean, great patio and location. You can walk next door to a bar and restaurant and had good food there. No air conditioning but it was ok as the nights are cool. The price of the room was in line with the rooms in the area. The owners were nice and accomodating. We think next time we will try to stay for more days and use this as our central location for the vacation. Truly a PLEASANT MEMORY of our Oregon vacation.
5 on September 11, 2016
We've stayed a couple of times here and both times have been great. The rooms are clean and tidy and every room's a different theme. They provide you with a free movie to watch every night along with movie snacks and in the morning a continental breakfast with the addition of of a Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich. Be sure to stay two nights because they'll provide you with free kayaking around the Bay. We've decided to make Wheeler On the Bay Lodge an annual trip. Here's hoping the wonderful couple who run it stay there forever! :p
5 on September 04, 2016
Wheeler on the Bay is our first choice for lodging on the Oregon Coast. It is a destination all by itself.
5 on September 01, 2016
I have stayed here several times now and each and every time is amazing service and a very clean comfortable place to stay.
4.6 on August 24, 2016
This was hands-down the cleanest facility I've stayed at...including New hotels in Vegas! The owners are wonderful and you even get adopted by Zorro, the friendliest little kitty. We chose the Sunset Room because of the deck complete w/ BBQ. The view was beautiful morning and evening. All of the little touches were considered; real coffee and creamer with real mugs, dishcloths, utensils, even makeup remover towelettes. We cannot wait to go back! A wonderful little lodge for a romantic retreat. Greg and Kathrynn Rockford, WA

had a wonderful weekend, clean rooms and friendly service. would highly recommend this place, plus stay 2 nights and u get free kayaking.
4.6 on August 17, 2016
This is a charming stop on the Oregon Coast. Our room was very nice. Everything we could have needed or wanted was provided. There were many personal touches, from charming beach decor to little mints left for us on the kitchenette coffee station.It was spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and the price very reasonable. We will definitely return.
5 on August 11, 2016
Wonderful family run place in a fun little town. The staff is excellent, thd kayaks were fun. Very relaxing, excellent for families or a romantic getaway.
4.8 on August 10, 2016
We have stayed at Wheeler Bay Lodge a number of times now and have never been disappointed. Our most recent stay was in the honeymoon room and it was absolutely beautiful, we loved having the deck to sit on and look out over the water, we watched all the wildlife and had a beautiful view of the mountains. Kayaking off the dock is a definite plus. The room was perfect, clean and comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we enjoy walking around the town and Nehalem Bay and Manzanita are close enough to visit as well.
3.8 on August 10, 2016
Very convenient location in a quaint town along a bay along the Oregon coast. This area is sunny when the beaches are cloudy, so it is a better bet for sun. Bay views are extraordinary.
4.6 on August 08, 2016
What a nice surprise. The owners here bend over backwards to please. This hotel is located away from the busyness of the larger beach towns, but is still a short drive to many Oregon Coast attractions. There is a dock on the property with kayaks, chairs and a bbq for guests to use. The rooms are small, but very clean and uniquely decorated. Breakfast, popcorn, sodas, movies and games are also included in the price. This is a wonderful get away for couples or families.
5 on August 06, 2016
We had a great time staying at the lodge. Very clean, home like room. They have a private dock, your can go down there to watch the sunrise and sunset by the bay in 30 seconds. The owners were very nice and very helpful to explain how the tide will affect our kayaking trip, recommend the best time to kayak, and set up the kayaks for us. The lodge is just off hwy101, close to several State Parks and ocean beeches. A great place to relax yourself.
4.6 on August 05, 2016
My two brothers and I had a great weekend at Wheeler by the Bay. Although the fish weren't cooperating, we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful Nehalem Bay. Our boat was tied up at their dock, so we were able to fish early morning and late evening in some of the most scenic surroundings anywhere. Pat and Tracey took good care of us, as always.

Very scenic and interesting location and the Otter Room keyed into that. Very clean, modern, and comfortable room.
4.8 on July 13, 2016
I had had surgery the week before and needed a quaint and quiet place to recuperate. Wheeler was just what I was hoping to find. The rooms all have their own theme and special touches. Pat and Tracy are very attentive to their guests and go out of their way to make sure every little need is taken care of. I plan on becoming a regular guest when I am in the area. Thank you Pat and Tracy for a relaxing and special stay just like the first time I was there back in 2009 with my son. EP
3.8 on July 12, 2016
This place is a bit quirky but all in a good way. The rooms could be updated some but then again, the campy feel is part of the charm. Our host was very welcoming and so hospitable that within minutes of arrival we found ourselves with baskets of breakfast treats for the morning and movies to take to our room. He also mentioned to let him know if we might want to make use of the kayaks on the dock. Ah yes, Wheeler on the Bay is true to its name...the small hotel sits at the bay and offers fabulous views. The view plus the comfortable accommodations and the hospitality of our host definitely make this hotel an affordable winner

This was the second time we choose to stay at wheeler on the bay. They took great care of us and helped set up extra chairs and space so we could have a game night with our kids. G. from Minnesota

Love the room, fireplace could put out more flames for ambiance. Very quaint and a great place to stay!
4.6 on May 21, 2016
We adore this place! A great getaway. Relaxing, quiet, and rejuvenating. A great value and everyone is so friendly! No onsite dining but there are things close by.
4.6 on May 17, 2016
I was looking for a place to relax and reflect away from the city and this place was perfect! The selection of movies, in room Jacuzzi, and included kayaking made this stay so worth the value. Everything was clean and comfortable. While Wheeler is a small town (350 people) it's close to many other towns on the coast, making it easy to explore the area with a nice home base. Pat and Tracy were both so kind and very welcoming. I'd definitely recommend.
4.6 on March 30, 2016
The hostess was super sweet, the room we had was the coolest lil stay... The weather wasnt favorable, but we strolled along the river beach and went back to the room when the rain was unbearable... Absolutely great time, very cozy!!!
4.6 on March 25, 2016
My two nights in the Otter room were cozy and comfortable during the OR rainy season. So, no outside dining. I was able to use the kayaks on site for two nice paddles viewing a bald eagle, otters, seal and elk across the bay. Fire place was nice and while watching a movie. The Lodge has a huge selection of dvd and vhs movies. Outstanding service included mailing my left behind items promptly. Will definitely return to paddle in the sunshine and explore the area.
4.6 on March 24, 2016
Very comfortable room with an amazing view of the river. The hotel is right on the 101, but it was very quiet and tranquil, and the soaking in the jacuzzi tub was wonderful. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, and you will definitely enjoy your staff!

Rooms ready as booked, had 10 year old grandson with us and he was treated as guest every time he went to get snack or movie. Great place.
4.6 on October 01, 2015
I spent four nights at Wheeler On The Bay Lodge at the beginning of September, 2015. It was a fishing trip for me and some friends that stopped by on a couple of the days. I loved being able to tie my little driftboat up to the dock and have it ready anytime I felt like heading out to troll for the chinook salmon that were running at the time. My room was clean and comfortable, and Pat and Tracy checked in with me each day to make sure I had everything I needed. It was just a great week in a beautiful place with wonderful people. I will be back soon.
4.8 on August 21, 2015
Our room was so cozy, and Pat and Tracy are wonderful, friendly, helpful people! We took advantage of the free kayaking for our two night stay and we checked out movies and popcorn for the evenings. The breakfasts were pretty simple, but they were a good way to start the day. We would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves along the Oregon Coast. What a great way to end our honeymoon!
4.6 on August 19, 2015
Best value... Quaint and relaxing
3.8 on August 10, 2015
This is our second time at Wheeler on the Bay lodge. This is a super value and you get great service from great owners. With the public outdoor viewing area, the dock. and the hospitality, who could ask for more?

I enjoyed staying at this place. The rooms were very clean and provided a very relaxing atmosphere. The owners were beyond friendly and helpful in providing dining and hiking recommendations.

Quiet, relaxing, friendly and helpful staff. Loved every minute
4.0 on May 03, 2015
Chose this location primarily because of the easy access to Nehalem River Kayaking. Turns out that we had free access to kayaks as a part of our room! That's a deal. The rooms are nicely decorated and there is good attention to what one may want. The breakfast choices weren't so hot but were adequate and the little fridge and microwave were useful. Propane fireplace was great. The location is wonderful! Views from the mini balcony and the common area are great. It's beautiful. I am recommending it to others headed that direction!
3.6 on May 01, 2015
Wheeler on the Bay has so much character and so much charm. It's welcoming, affordable and luxurious. The spa tubs, comfy beds, clean rooms, cozy decor, fireplaces, free movies, picturesque location and included breakfast make Wheeler on the Bay a unique, relaxing experience and a true retreat. We always feel at home there and always leave feeling refreshed.
3.0 on April 21, 2015
This was a return visit to Wheeler, and I was disappointed by their inflexibility to accommodate my request to use the kayaks. It is my fault that I did not read their policy of only allowing guests who stay for multiple nights to use the kayaks. However, I had arrived early in the day during the week (we would have been back before any of their other guests arrived) and in fact as the day progressed it seemed like most of the kayaks went unused.
4.6 on March 30, 2015
Such a great, relaxing place to stay. It's quiet location and view of the bay is perfect. The owners go beyond my expectations with their service and are kind and helpful. Very easy to recommend staying here!
4.6 on March 08, 2015
A beautiful setting right on the bay in the quaint coastal town of Wheeler, OR. The view was incredible and the suite we had (Honeymoon) included a private bayfront deck where we were able to sit in shorts to watch the sun set on March 2 (generally unheard of at that time of year). Our accommodations were roomy, yet cozy, and tastefully decorated, and the owners were friendly and available if we needed anything. Breakfast options were adequate. We were within walking diatance of restaurants, park, antique stores, and coffee shop. We will definitely go back and stay there again!
3.2 on February 27, 2015
How would I have known that this little place that is tucked away from view could be so magical? My wife and I booked our first of many stays at the lodge. The pictures that they show you do not do it justice. We had a wonderful unobstructed view, there are kayaks, and the free goodies (popcorn, movies, candy, etc.) just make you feel right at home. The only pet you will see is the lodge cat who is such a character. I do not recommend eating at the bar and grill near here...not worth it. The location is neatly tucked in with some of our favorite spots: Nehalem Bay Winery, Pacific Oyster in Bay City, Nehalem beach, Kelly's Marina for fresh crab and clams, the night life in Manzanita...
5 on February 22, 2015
We've stayed here twice in the last year and each stay has been excellent. The room is always clean, Pat & Tracy are always awesome, and the view is great. Plus, you can't beat free kayaking! We'll definitely make this one of our go-to places for the beach from now on. I highly recommend staying at Wheeler on the Bay.
4.0 on February 03, 2015
This is the second year we have stayed here for my birthday January 31st. The number one reason we stay here is for the crabbing. We can bring our boat and park it and docking is easy. Last year when we got there we had never crabbed in January. The older man that runs the place really shit on our parade by implying we wouldn't catch anything. But we went out and did awesome. We came back this year with more con fidence and experience but he did it again. But now we take him as our pessimist good luck charm because we came home with ten crabs. The rooms are nice and the premade breakfast seems kind of odd but honestly was awesome to have. Microwave and jump on the boat with food in our bellies. Also at night they have a lot of DVDs to borrow with free popcorn, candy and soda. Pretty nice. We will be back next year for sure. Probably sooner. Only negative things are pessimism and the guy comes in your room to show you around and teach you how to use the remote. Its weird. He kind of acts like if he doesn't show us everything we may burn the place down.
3.8 on February 03, 2015
Hosts were very friendly. We stayed in the Honeymoon suite, which was great. The tub was deep and had seats for two people, but was very narrow. I thought this was an excellent bargain.
4.6 on January 24, 2015
From the moment we walked in to the time we left we were made to feel like we were important. Every aspect of the place was explained to us and shown. We were offered and upgrade to a bigger room but we elected to stay in our first choice. When it came time to take advantage of the Kayak they fitted us with our preservers and escorted to the dock and everything important was shown or explained. The room was well organized and clean, clean, clean. Our view was right out over the bay. I scared away accidentally two Great Blue Heron right out side the parking lot. I would highly recommend Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. Very nice folks.

Loved our stay at Wheeler. It was pleasantly relaxing and quite romantic. Wheeler is a quaint town filled with friendly people, good food and lots of antiques. While there we enjoyed the dinner train. Definitely a place we would go back to!
4.2 on October 27, 2014
We rented the Honeymoon room (though not newlyweds, but we think it's the best room). It has a wonderful large deck right off the room that sits on the bay with a gorgeous view. It's beautiful and peaceful. The room was cozy and decorated well, it was very comfortable. The hosts are friendly and very accommodating, we had forgotten an item and they offered to lend us theirs; very kind. Wheeler is a small town but has some very nice antique shops and coffee/bakery shops as well. This has been our second stay here and we'll be back next year too! Highly recommended.
5 on October 16, 2014
We stay every year once or twice. Love everything about it. Fishing, crabbing was excellent
3.8 on October 12, 2014
Love that they tell you what type of bed is in each room. Not everyone can sleep on one or another type of bed and being comfortable is my top priority.
3.2 on October 10, 2014
The location is beautiful and the proprietors are very nice. The rooms are dated but clean. They provide a breakfast consisting of individually packaged and frozen sandwiches and pastries so skip their offering and walk across the street to the Roost for wonderful homemade pastries and sandwiches. Show your room rental receipt and get a 10% discount.
5 on October 08, 2014
What a great find! This is a small spot on the Oregon Coast and could be easily missed which would be a shame. Pat and Tracey, the owners, are fabulous, welcoming and have thought of just about everything... so many great details! Comfortable beds, great property, and a really beautiful location. Can't wait to book again!
4.6 on September 18, 2014
Wheeler On The Bay Lodge is indeed a B&B gem. The room was small, but very clean and well appointed.. Everything we could possibly want for a comfortable getaway was there or available for the asking. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with owner's Pat and Tracy, who made sure our needs were met. We stayed in the "Glory" room, and the vista from our private deck was amazing. Beautiful sunsets, fish jumping, wildlife and birds galore, Even the friendly resident kitty greeted us daily TIP - Regardless of the reviews, we found good dining choices to be limited in Wheeler. Based on ratings and reviews, we opted to dine at the "Rising Star Cafe." I do not recommend this eatery. Our food, as well as our overall experience, could not have been worse.. However, we certainly look forward to a return visit to Wheeler and will definitely stay at Wheeler On The Bay Lodge. Trip summation: Pros -- Everything Cons -- The Rising Star Cafe Ray and Becky Knox Morro Bay, California

Wheeler On The Bay Lodge goes above and beyond in Service, Value and Cleanliness. It is a great hidden gem.

Wheeler on the Bay is a wonderful destination for fun and relaxation. My wife and I have stayed there 3-4 times now. We take our kayaks and paddle the Nehalam River. Don't have a kayak, no need to worry, Pat and Tracy will loan you theirs. Speaking of Pat and Tracy, they are one of the main reasons we like staying at Wheeler on the Bay. They both go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure guests are taken care of. When you check in, you will receive your little basket in which you will place your chosen breakfast items for the following morning. But wait, the fun doesn't stop there. You will also get your choice of snacks which will be used while watching a free movie. For what more can a vacationer ask?
4.2 on August 27, 2014
The owners are very nice, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are clean and roomy. We would stay here again with no hesitation. Very close to the water front.

We recently reserved a room here for friends who would be in town for a visit. It was my first experience with the property, and I found everything to be oustanding. My friends found it even more so! They loved the interaction with the owners on multiple occasions. They felt their room was above and beyond, both in cleanliness and comfort. I have to agree that every base was covered in a very thoughtful manner. No detail was overlooked, and I feel very confident in having all future visitors stay at this property. Thank you Pat & Tracy for your hospitality! It really made a difference for my friends, and is very appreciated.

3.6 on August 18, 2014
We arrived and found the owners to be incredibly friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and had everything you could want in them. This lodge is located on a lovely part of the bay and there were some good sunsets to watch from the dock. It also was conveniently located. I'd definitely come back if I was in the area again.
4.4 on August 18, 2014
There are no words to describe this quaint and delightful BB. You have to experience this little oasis by staying there. Pat and Tracy were all about the comfort and needs of their guest which you can see by how well the rooms were prepared and all the special little goodies they give you.They care about you even before you get their. We stayed in the OTTER room which was decorated uniquely to match its name and had a peaceful and restful 2 days . So much to do and experience was not enough time. My husband and I will definitely be returning quests but to another room to have a new adventure every time we go. Thank You and God Bless Pat and Tracy for making us feel so welcomed and cared about. You must stay and experience this port in the storm. You will not be disappointed. Al and Betty Blumberg

Enjoyed a terrific weekend on the bay watching the locals fish and boat just feet from our spacious deck before enjoying a relaxing soak in a hot tub for two in our room. Highly recommend and will return soon.
4.4 on August 06, 2014
Couldn't be a more lovely spot. Gorgeous view of the bay. Very nice clean rooms at a reasonable price. Rising Star Cafe across the street was fantastic!
4.4 on August 05, 2014
We so enjoyed our stay. Our host's were extraordinary, going well out of their way to help us out when we were under prepared for our crabbing trip and advising us about the salmon run. The room was quiet, very clean and well appointed. I loved the tub! Prepare for dining early or you'll end up having to travel to a nearby town. Go to Rising Star for sure! The Roost was a great place to grab a hot coffee before crabbing. If all else fails, the burger at Tsunami on the late night bar menu was noteworthy. Wheeler is a really nice place that has worked hard to make it's self more interesting to tourist. Well worth the time and energy to get there. Thank you Pat and Tracy!
3.4 on August 02, 2014
A brothers reunion for a few days. The resort appeared to be family run, and was kept up very well. An older facility, but had character and charm. The resort had a boat dock on Wheeler Bay and the clear-sky sunsets were terrific. The bar next door had a great outdoor deck overlooking the bay.
4.4 on August 01, 2014
All outstanding, would not be hesitant to recomment to friends wishing to visit the locale. Village is quaint, clean, interesting shops to visit, and plenty of activities for an extended stay. Unfortunately, ours was only an overnighter, but we are discriminating travelers. This is a diamond of a find.
4.4 on July 31, 2014
I would have put the room as outstanding, the only little issues is the ceilings are so high that I am sure they are hard to clean and there were spiders nesting in there. I hate spiders. If the spiders were not there, it would have been OUTSTANDING! :) The Dining part is really the breakfast. I love that you get to chose and have it ahead of time. I love the movie room, popcorn and soda. It was a really nice touch. :) I would go back in a heartbeat.

The owners made sure our family annual get together was great ----
4.4 on July 03, 2014
We've loved to visit Wheeler for years, but this was our first stay at the Lodge. With our own patio right on the bay, it was a wonderfully different experience. It was so peaceful sitting just outside our room and watching all the wildlife in the bay. There is a heron who lives right there, and otters who come and taunt him. We barbecued every night on the grill on our deck soaked in the tub - lovely! And, one day we took advantage of the included kayaks and paddled around the bay. It's a fun, funky little lodge and we love it!
4.4 on June 23, 2014
We were very pleased with our stay at Wheeler on the Bay. We stayed in the Otter, presented as a no-frills room. It was LOVELY. Super clean, with lots of special touches like stocked silverware and plates, napkins, coffee supplies, extra pillows, candies -- a very long list of wonderful little surprises. The room's deck was pleasant and private-feeling, and the whole place was pin-drop quiet. We plan to return. We felt the owners were responsive but maybe a little more watchful than needed, questioning the signature on my credit card and hovering the whole time we picked out DVDs. Once, I was looking at the beautiful glass art on the outside of each room, I was asked if I was lost. But on the whole, we really enjoyed our stay and have recommended it to all our friends!
5 on June 21, 2014
We were staying at the Wheeler at the Bay for a wedding. Wheeler at the Bay was a wonderful BB. Pat and Tracy were so kind and most helpful with any of our inquiries. We stayed in the middle of the week and it was quiet. If you are looking for a place to stay this is a great getaway!

I recently stayed at Wheeler on the Bay with my two kids . The stay couldn't been better . Pat and Tracy are the best host ever.

My only wish for change would be to allow our mini dachshund.
4.4 on May 17, 2014
So wished we had spent an extra night here. The owners were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Sitting on the deck of room 7 was just perfect for relaxation; and a view that used up probably too much of the memory card in my camera. I couldn't stop finding wonderful shots. The room was exquisite. A really great find.

Very nice, rooms were clean(very important to me) and quiet. Breakfast and movie choices were very good. Would stay there again.

Cozy? Check! Outstanding personal service? Check!! Unique and thoughtful amenities? Check and check! I've gone back to Wheeler on the Bay countless times over the last six years, and I'm consistently ecstatic each time. There's are so many little things that make a huge difference; like free kayaking, fireplaces in every room, full size coffee pots, super comfy mattresses, beach themed rooms (tasteful, not tacky, lol!), tons of movies/games/books to choose from, unlimited popcorn/soda/candy, breakfast, and discounts on local restaurants, to name a few!! My favorite thing is that it's so close to Nehalem and Manzanita, and your right between Seaside and Tillamook. Oh, and did I mention the fishing and crashing? And very reasonable rates? I must stop, because I could go on and on!! Can't wait until I get to go back!!!!!!!

This is the second time we have stayed here, and we will always stay here when visiting this part of the Oregon coast. The decorating details of the rooms are delightful. The staff is so friendly. We had a bit of a boating accident during the day, and when we came back to our rooms, the staff was so kind - extra towels, bags for all our wet gear, and most of all... compassion for our adventure.

Great location, Great people, Great value.

We have stayed there twice now in the last 4 weeks.We had the room with the large patio overlooking the bay which was a great room.Very good value for money with nice owners.DC

My daughter's and I stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay. The Jacuzzi with candle.light was perfect for a sore back and a need to relax. Definitely will stay again.

The view of the bay from our room was outstanding. I have been coming here off and on for 20 years now and it is my favorite places in the world. Food next door at the tsunam restaraunt is outstanding.
5 on April 12, 2014
Now that i have stayed for a nite i will book for a longer stay next time. Our room was homey and sitting on the bay is a real pleasure.

The view was breathtaking.
4.6 on April 09, 2014
We were pleasantly surprised by all the extras included in our stay. The movie rentals, snacks, and breakfast were great. Wish we needed to stay more than one night!
4.8 on April 06, 2014
The rooms were great, the owners were wonderful, the local shops and and restaurants are very good given the town's small size. This will be my first choice on the North Coast from now on.
4.0 on March 29, 2014
I've been here twice, each time a different jacuzzi room. I like the privacy and quiet. There are very few dining choices in Wheeler, but it's not too far to drive for a decent meal. Looking forward to my next visit!
4.6 on March 14, 2014
Room was clean and nice, not large, but large enough. The view was nice it's located in a neat little town.
4.8 on February 23, 2014
It was a perfect setting to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. On the way over we stopped at spirit mountain and had a excellent lunch, Then went and enjoyed viewing Munson Creek Falls and eventually arrived at Wheeler On The Bay. Pat and Tracy greeted us with their friendly smiles and gave us a tour of our room and the surrounding accommodations. The room was cozy and very comfortable. The bonus was we were lucky and had sunshine in February. Thank You for a special time on my birthday.
4.8 on February 19, 2014
The location is beautiful! The service was outstanding! And although our weather was pretty bad, the rooms were so cozy, my husband and I took full advantage of the outstanding complimentary DVD selection. The owners are incredibly accommodating, and made sure our stay was as wonderful as possible. We took a drive south to the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Tillamook Air Museum & Munson Creek Falls. We also found a really fun beach, 5 miles North of Wheeler at Manzanita, where Nehalem Bay meets the ocean. While there, we found several agates and a couple pieces of geodes with sparkly crystals still intact. So cool! Each adventure we took off on, we were always excited to get back to our warm room to light the fireplace and unwind. We had a terrific time, and will be back in the summer months.

Stayed 10 years ago (in Honeymoon Suite) for anniversary, and had many nice memories. So repeated for 2014 Valentine's Day. New owners, who really take great care of guests--check in, orientation, breakfast selection, movie rental, dining recommendations and discounts, area information and even canoe/kayak rentals. Did not think it possible, but latest stay was even better than the first!! Highly recommend the experience.
4.8 on January 02, 2014
As with our first visit - our room was clean and comfortable. The personal, friendly service make this one of our favorite places to stay along the coast. We look forward to our next visit.
4.8 on November 09, 2013
We love Wheeler, not only due to its picturesque landscape, but also because we love browsing through the antique shops and driving through the surrounding area. I chose Wheeler On The Bay Lodge as we had never stayed there before. Pat and Tracy were very nice. The room was small, but well accommodated. There was everything you could ever need, plus more. And the view is unsurpassable. Wish we had stayed in the Spring or Summer! Well, that may be to come... Very nice. .
3.4 on October 29, 2013
This is a cute little motel converted to a freindly stay by the owners. Pat greeted us upon arrival. You are able to pick some items ( yogurt fruit and cold cereal) to put in your room for the morning. Free movies available. The Bay itself is beautiful and peaceful. Dinner in Manzanita was lovely.
4.8 on October 27, 2013
We stayed two nights in the Otter Room and just loved it. The beds were comfy, The room and bathroom was nice and clean. The kitchenette was small, but had everything we needed plus some. And it had a dining room table. Free movies, popcorn and soda was a clincher. The owners were very nice and willing to serve us to accommodate our needs. Plus, they had a place for us to moor our boat at their dock. Three weeks later we returned to Wheeler On the Bay and got an equally nice room and accommodations. And They remembered our last stay so it was like coming home.
4.4 on October 26, 2013
We had one of the rooms on the end of the building with a view of the bay. Loved watching the sunsets through the patio doors, from our bed. Don't know what the other rooms were like. The owners were very well organized and we were given a thorough orientation when we arrived. Huge selection of DVD's for viewing and free popcorn.
4.8 on October 16, 2013
I just want to say that we are so glad we stopped and stayed at Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. It was a beautiful setting. The owners and the room were fantastic. Loved the movie options, breakfast and help with dining options. We will definately come back to this area and stay at the same place. Greg and Teresa, Salt Lake City Utah
4.2 on October 16, 2013
What a great little lodge feel to this motel. The room was much nicer than I expected. Clean and recently renovated. Had all the amenities I needed. The fireplace was a great bonus. Most everything was unexpected. Even a little breakfast basket given to us the night before for the next morning was a nice surprise. Great people and great service. Right on the water with great views. I will be staying here again!
5 on October 12, 2013
Wow, Definitely stay here if your destination is Oregon's North Coast. Quaint and Romantic, yet close to everything you need. Great shopping nearby. Your hosts here have truly thought of everything in these well appointed suites. We look forward to visiting again for many times to come. Robbi & Tricia Riddell
4.2 on October 07, 2013
If you prefer giant hotel chains, you will not care for this place. Small, unique, owner-operated inn. Each room is decorated and named differently, and they are all charming, cozy, and immaculate. The owners are super-nice and make you feel welcome, which is not always typical for a solo female traveler. I weathered a storm here in one of the waterfront rooms with a hot tub, and it was the perfect weekend! I will be back.
3.6 on September 30, 2013
loved being close to the water
4.8 on September 28, 2013
Great location for discovering the northern Oregon coast! We went with my mother for the last 2 days of her visit. I would LOVE to go again with my husband! The rooms are decorated really cute and you get a lot for your money. I would DEFINITELY recommend Wheeler on the Bay to everyone!! Got to see it to believe it :) !!
4.6 on September 25, 2013
This is our second stay in two months since we have discovered the Wheeler Bay in August. We were just as impressed this time as the first. The owners are very friendly and made us feel special. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite on both of our stays. The private deck and tub for two are just a few of the items that make this place so special. Upon arrival and check in you are given your choice of several continental breakfast items that you take to your room for the next morning so there is no line or crowded breakfast room. There are also free movies from a very large library, free snacks, free popcorn, and free sodas. The room was very well decorated and cozy! I could go on and on about how wonderful this place is!Did I forget to mention the free use of kayaks during your stay? I cannot wait for the next time we get to stay at the Wheeler on the Bay Lodge!!
5 on September 11, 2013
This was our first stay at Wheeler by the bay and found it to be awesome. The owners and staff are very informative and carring. They took us to our room, that was clean and charming and showed us all the amenities making sure we were comfortable. We went fishing, crabbing and kayaking, beach walking and antiquing why we were there. It's a gret area for Kayaking and is free with the room.There is a common area with very comfortable seating and We sat and watch the elk and other wildlife across the bay as the sun set. It was awesome. I would highly recommend this place. We will be back and bring our friends
4.8 on September 09, 2013
Wheeler on the Bay Lodge is a gem. The setting is serene; the accommodations are clean and homey - relaxing. Pat and Tracy are a delight.
5 on September 05, 2013
Our room was very clean and well stocked with everything we could need. It is not your typical breakfast offered, but it suited our needs very well. The owners were friendly, welcoming and very accommodating! We have kept all the information so we can stay again!
3.4 on September 03, 2013
A wonderful place with incredible views. The owers are so helpful and cannot do enough for you. Lots of fishing, kayaking and hiking. People are up talking and getting ready to go fishing very early in the morning. A terrific little get away. Nice shops in Wheeler, and nearby Nehalem and Manzanita. Local fresh organic foods.
4.4 on September 02, 2013
We booked this motel on line, not knowing what to expect. We got a great room, free videos, a good wi-fi, a lovely room in a good location, all looked after by a wonderful, friendly couple. The best place we've stayed between Port Angeles and Bandon on our bike trip.
4.6 on August 28, 2013
Very nice and relaxing stay with my husband. Much needed R&R. Owners are extremely friendly and attentive. We stayed in the honeymoon suite with a private deck overlooking the bay. It was wonderful. The absolute ONLY downfall is the huge skylight. It makes it very very hard to sleep in on our mini vacation! Next time we will bring sleep masks!
4.8 on August 27, 2013
This was a wonderful place. It was very clean, welcoming and comfortable. I can't wait to go back again to stay longer than just one quick night to truly enjoy all that it has to offer.
4.8 on August 26, 2013
As my husband and I were sitting on the deck looking out on the bay he kept saying"I love this place!"It was so peaceful. The owners were so kind and took pride in the Lodge.The little amenities were so nice! We loved the decks over looking the bay.The rooms were spotless and charming.We will be back!
4.2 on August 23, 2013
We just stayed at Wheeler on the Bay for three nights and loved it. My husband, myself, my daughter and my niece were in the Suite Sea which had two cozy bedrooms and a separate sitting area with kitchenette, and my brother and his son stayed in the Blue Heron Room with a deck and a view. We brought our 15 ft. daysailer and two sea kayaks, also used the sea kayaks provided by the lodge, and spent most of our time on the water or on the lovely dock enjoying the view. Ate dinner watching the sun set from the deck at the Tsunami Bar and Grill, on the other side of the town park from Wheeler on the Bay Lodge, and got 10$ off the bill with our lodge receipt. Also dined one night in Manzanita, 15 minutes up the road. Very close to Oswald West State Park, one of the best beaches for seeing starfish on the rocks at low tide. Overall, a very clean and friendly place owned and run by nice folks, Pat and Tracy.
4.4 on August 21, 2013
We stayed in the "Sunset" room and enjoyed the spectacular view over the Nehalem River. This was our second visit to Wheeler On The Bay Lodge; the other time we stayed in one of the non-view rooms and the amenities in Sunset were worth more than the slight increase in cost. We'll be back again.
4.0 on August 21, 2013
We stayed in the Ebb Tide room and it was great. The hot tub was so nice to relax in! The bed was cozy and clean. I love all of the breakfast stuff we got to pick out and take to our room for the morning. I also loved the peanut M&M's and the York peppermint patties that were left for us to snack on. Tracy was so helpful. A real value for the price! You won't be disappointed!
4.2 on August 21, 2013
We love this place! It is a great value and great location. Pat and Tracy are the best hosts too! We go here every year and I don't see that changing anytime soon. We highly recommend Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. Here are some reasons to go there - Good value - All things considered from the included breakfast items to the free kayaking (2 nights minimum), it's a great value. Salmon fishing & crabbing Rooms have everything you need, refer, microwave, TV, outdoor hibachis. Great hosts! Pat and Tracy are very friendly and make you feel right at home. Manzanita Beach is really close by and is usually sunny even when the rest of the north coast is not. Tsunami Cafe is about 100 yards away! LOL Just book it! You won't be sorry. -Happy travelers
4.8 on August 19, 2013
Wheeler on the Bay is a wonderful destination if you are looking for a small town environment. What makes this place so desirable is the way owners Pat and Tracey work so hard to ensure your stay is all it can possibly be. They go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to those little personal touches. If you are looking to just relax or take to the river in a kayak, Wheeler on the Bay is your ticket
4.8 on August 19, 2013
Always a great time
4.4 on August 17, 2013
This lovely spot by the water is a perfect get away. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are charming, clean and convenient, and the scenery is amazing. Above all it is extremely peaceful. I highly recommend it as a rewarding experience for young and old alike.
4.2 on August 16, 2013
Pat and Tracy were very accommodating and pleasant. They offer a "pick your own" breakfast and plenty of games and DVD's. The room was small, but well-decorated and comfortable, with a frig and microwave and snacks provided. We enjoyed our stay here.
5 on August 11, 2013
Dining per se' is not applicable to this motel; but we love their continental breakfast concept. Lots of restaurants close by, just don't go to the Tsunami Grill. Great rooms, we've stayed twice now. Love the rooms we've had, clean & decorated with comfort in mind. Hubby loves the huge tub, towels are really large & fluffy, staff is wonderful, Can't beat the whole deal!! Thank you Pat & Tracy
4.6 on August 11, 2013
This Inn is very cozy and clean. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. The area is beautiful and we visit often. Stay here most times we are needing a room for a night or two. I rated the dining in the middle because there is no restaurant here.
5 on August 08, 2013
We had a awesome vacation at the Wheeler Lodge & Marina. The beds were amazing; clean soft sheets and many pillows on comfortable mattresses. A breakfast basket with a good variety to choose from and complimentary popcorn and soft drinks in the evening. The Nehalem River is so beautiful; I just had to take advantage of the free Kayak every morning. Considering the many fishermen trying to catch young Pacific Salmon the river was very peaceful. I would recommend this place to people who love nature and just want to get away from the noise! Our Best, Howard & Norm San Diego, California
4.2 on August 07, 2013
We could only stay for one night, but really had fun at Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. Would have stayed longer if we could. Pat and Tracy are wonderful hosts, the room was pleasant, everything was clean, and the location is beautiful.
4.6 on August 07, 2013
The lodge is a lovely retreat from home. The owners spoil their guests! They go far and above regular accommodations and include things like a huge selection of movies and treats and games or books. The views are beyond lovely and relaxing! It is a real treat to spend time there.
4.6 on August 06, 2013
We absolutely loved our stay! We had a gorgeous view from the Sunset Room, clean and comfortable furnishings, relaxing private deck, cozy little fireplace. Pat and Tracy are friendly, knowledgeable, and so hospitable. They clearly care about the comfort of their guests, from the little amenities like popcorn for your movie from their library to the amazing free kayaking on the Nehalem River. Would recommend to anyone, and would love to return ourselves.
5 on August 04, 2013
One night stay on our way to Port Angles. Good choice.
5 on August 04, 2013
Peaceful, quiet, beautiful place with kayaking from the door. Hard to find calm waters in Oregon, which is one of the things that drew us here. Pat and Tracy were so accomodating about our dietary needs. Kids loved the free movie rental (great selection) and their outdoor cat. We really liked the town as well; better than the larger nearby places. Great hiking nearby with recommendations from Tracy. We stayed 4 nights but could stay much longer. Stayed in the Tuscony Room (2 adults, 2 kids) - very clean and tastefully decorated. Hope to come back.
5 on August 01, 2013
I loved this place. Great location. Lovely people. Clean and comfortable rooms. I loved the movies, snacks and games. Would stay here again I'm a heartbeat.
3.8 on July 30, 2013
The room was ok with a comfy mattress, but kind of close to the road. The hosts were accommodating, and we really enjoyed the free kayaking with a 2-night stay. The breakfasts were serviceable, but not great. Be aware that several clear-cutting scars are evident on the surrounding hills.
5 on July 29, 2013
This lodge is the best! The amenities were outstanding, the hosts were extremely accommodating and we had a marvelous time!
5 on July 27, 2013
We stayed in the Glory suite and loved it.
4.2 on July 27, 2013
Location was super. Right on the bay which offered a relief from the heavy winds at the ocean. The hosts couldn't have been any more accommodating. They were great and really seem to enjoy running this property, which is also their home. Good value, very clean. Definitely recommend. There was no 'dining' or restaurant at this hotel. They provide a few items for breakfast, which we didn't expect, so that was a plus.
4.2 on July 25, 2013
We stayed overnight before the Manzanita Beach Run. The owners were absolutely wonderful and the room was clean and comfortable. They had all kinds of unexpected surprises such as the free movie rental and goodies that came along with the room. We will definitely be back!
3.6 on July 25, 2013
Stayed recently in one of the suites. Owners were friendly and helpful, room was clean, tastefully decorated, and thoughtfully appointed. A bit small, especially the bathroom. Particularly enjoyed the private deck and the resident cat. Breakfast options were of the Costco pastry variety, and the fruit offerings were just apples and bananas during the summer, if you care about that sort of thing. Excellent restaurant, Rising Star Cafe, within easy walking distance, and two lovely shops across the street, Cultivation and Trillium, offer fabulous local artisan jewelry, ceramics, and textiles. Would likely stay here again.
4.6 on July 18, 2013
Stayed at Wheeler's July 11 -14 . It is very relaxing and the owners do all they can to make your stay fun and pleasant. The place is super clean and well maintained. Will stay there again when we go crabbing in Oct..
4.6 on July 15, 2013
Spent a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary. Room was wonderful, and the management always takes good care to ensure our stay is pleasant!
4.2 on July 15, 2013
Wheeler on the Bay was more than we hoped for when looking for a peaceful getaway in July. The rooms are clean and well decorated, and the location on the Nehalem River was outstanding. Pat and Tracy, the owners, were gracious and friendly, and truly want you to have an excellent experience. We loved it so much we stayed two extra nights, for a total of four. Kayaking the river with their kayaks was icing on the cake - bald eagles, blue heron, otters and an entire herd of Roosevelt Elk! We will definitely return again and again.
4.6 on July 12, 2013
Tracy and Pat do an amazing job!! This was the only place we could think of staying for a mini honeymoon. It being only our 2nd time here, alot had changed in 3 years and it was even better than the first amazing time. Tracy knew just where to send us for a special dinner and we barely left the room because we were so comfortable and exhausted. Movies galore even new releases!!! It was amazing and we will continue to visit!
4.8 on July 05, 2013
My sister and I had a wonderful experience at Wheeler On the Bay Lodge. We couldn't get over how nice everyone was, and all the little extras that were available to us at the Lodge.
3.0 on July 03, 2013
This is not a typical b and b, esp when our 3-bedroom space housed 7 of us. A mish-mash of towels and campy kitchen worked well for our family. There is no home-cooked breakfast but if you like to eat your cereal while watching eagle fly over a bay this is your place
4.8 on June 19, 2013
This is my favorite place to stay. Worth the money. Never disappointed.
4.2 on June 11, 2013
What an unexpected charmer this place was! We were making a one night stop while we traveled up the coast and had never been to Wheeler, we really didn't know what to expect but we were so surprised to find such a cozy, relaxing and even romantic property. We peaked into most of the cabins and every one had its own special feel and was decorated with a special touch to make each room cozy and warm. The property faces the river and we spent the evening watching a Heron fish from the dock and a beautiful sunset. We highly recommend this little slice of heaven. Pat & Tracy are very friendly and have done a great job in making this a delightful place to vacation.
4.4 on June 10, 2013
OK - the cost was minimal, room was excellent, & there was no road noise - despite the proximity to Hwy 101. View off the pier was calming, tho' the effect may have been enhanced by an opportunistic cat; juggling my Jamesons whilst doing the demanded (quite a talker, this cat) skritch was as stressful as it got. My only gripe would be the lack of a good reading light.
5 on June 03, 2013
We live this place such a quite lovely stay we come back evedy year.
4.2 on June 01, 2013
This place is in a wonderfully green and peaceful estuary, just inland from the sandy Oregon beaches. The room was small and equipped just fine, bed was comfy, and the spa tub a REAL treat. Furnishings were in excellent condition. Wheeler is a very tiny town and we enjoyed a barbecue and blues night at a local winery, Nehalem. Spent an hour or so paddling in sea kayaks which was a real bonus for boat-lovers like us. Easy to take short trips up and down the coast to see the variety--rugged rocky shoreline, and long sandy beaches. I was VERY glad not to be in busy Seaside.
4.6 on May 30, 2013
Very welcoming and clean. Owners were helpful with my boat and trailer parking-room was a delight. We're coming back.
4.8 on May 26, 2013
Pat and Tracy have a wonderful place right on the Bay with a gorgeous view. We spent a wonderful week visiting our son and dtr-in-law. The visit was made better by the fact that everything was taken care of by Pat. The room was spacious with a wonderful spa and our hosts provided information on places to visit and eat. If I am ever on the coast this is the first place I will stay. Glenora
4.4 on May 13, 2013
My husband and I recently visited for the fourth time. Each time in a different room (our goal is to stay at least once in each room). Two of our visits were for very special occasions, my 50th birthday in 2010 and our 10th wedding anniversary in 2012, and we have not been disapointed. Pat and Tracy are great, always very friendly and helpful. 8^)
4.6 on May 13, 2013
My husband and I had an amazing time our favorite was the private tub :) Am planning on bringing the family for a great getaway!
5 on May 06, 2013
We stayed in the honeymoon suite because it is the only one with a king bed. It is an adorable room with a huge deck near the water. We also enjoyed the very deep, red jacuzzi tub. The platform bed was a little firm for us, and the bath is very small. However, the lovely setting and uniqueness of the room made up for that!
4.8 on April 24, 2013
We stayed in the Glory Suite and it was awesome as always! Everytime I come here there is something new. The new decking with the b-b-q is a very nice touch. We will be back soon and often!
5 on April 21, 2013
It is a pretty nice setting with a beautiful water just by the property and a very nice couple as a host! I enjoyed myself with comfortable living conditions and beautiful water view!
4.4 on April 13, 2013
Great value. I recommend kayaking!
4.8 on April 11, 2013
Second time staying here. Honeymoon suite is our new favorite. Very eloquent yet still a home like feel. We loved the comfortableness of it all and the privacy was an added bonus. We will be back many more times.
3.2 on April 01, 2013
Lovely view. Clean room
5 on March 24, 2013
My Wife and I were looking at different areas on the coast when we came across this gem. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend. Our room was clean ,quiet and the Service was excellent. We will definetly be back.
4.6 on March 20, 2013
My husband and I recently stayed at the Wheeler Lodge. After researching the B&B sites for days I took the plunge and booked a room there. I was nervous that because the price was so reasonable the rooms wouldn't live up to the descriptions and pictures. I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms are exactly as pictured, with renovations & upgrades currently happening (the owners told us this). It was very clean and cozy. We stayed in the Sunset Room as recommended by another reviewer. The view was perfect! The owners are wonderful, friendly, helpful people that make you feel special. They give you the privacy you want but are around when needed. We had the best weekend, staying at the Wheeler, shopping and dining in the nearby towns and enjoying the ocean and bay views. We will definitely stay here again in the near future!
4.6 on March 13, 2013
The room was very clean, and the jacuzzi was much appreciated after a few hours of kayaking around the island. We stayed in the Glory Suite, which has a great view of the bay, and we watched sea otters, cranes and various wildlife from our room and the deck. We ate at the Bunk House (good nachos) and the Big Wave Cafe (fresh salmon!). We will definitely be coming back to Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. Outstanding value! You would expect this place to cost more.
5 on February 25, 2013
We have always wanted to stay here but somehow never got around to it. What a mistake! It is a Lovely, quiet,and owner friendly Bed and Breakfast. The owners can not do enough for each guest to make their stay wonderful. The rooms are thoughtfully furnished and the amenities in each room just make the stay so comfortable. Free movies, popcorn, and other snacks, the rooms have wine glasses and an opener and a supply of both paper and glass plates. We enjoyed the visit of heron, loons and otters. What more could you ask for???
4.8 on February 22, 2013
We stayed on the off season, and for $75/night we got a really clean room in excellent repair and really nicely appointed. The jacuzzi tub was awesome, loved the shower and fireplace too. The bed was fantastic. The room didn't look at all careworn, the furniture was in great shape. The owner was enthusiastic and nice, they had a great selection of movies for the evening along with candy and other treats to enjoy. They also provided a decent breakfast for you the night before to take back to your room and heat up the next morning at your convenience, which was nice. The other thing I really appreciated about the room was the sheer amount of electrical plugs. Anymore, you're bringing and e-reader and a phone and an ipod and have nowhere to charge them, but they had a lot of free spots to plug in. I will very likely come back here!

We had a great stay! The room was great! Service was wonderf! Can't think of a thing they could have done better. We had a wonderful start to our honeymoon. We stayed two days and then went to seaside. It was the best out of the week!
4.6 on December 31, 2012
I have lost count of the amount of times that I've stayed in this cozy, homy, inn! I've been here with girlfriends to celebrate birthdays, as a romantic retreat, twice by myself for some alone time... and each time, the inn fits the purpose of my stay. I love that it is run by a family, and there are many amenities included; countless movie rentals, free popcorn/candy/pop/breakfast items/coffee/tea, games to check out, free kayaking if you stay two nights, and crabbing is a walk away at the marina next door! The dining score is only three because they don't have a restaurant or actual dining on site... BUT, right next door is the Tsunami Restaurant and bar (DELISH!) and across the street is the Rising Star Cafe (YUMMMM!). I could go on and on, but you should just stay here and see for yourself! :)

Wonderful hosts, great room, pretty view. We will be back soon!

We really appreciated the owners' caring and attentiveness. We had great choices for movies to watch in our room, a breakfast basket with our choices and more towels than we could have used in a stay three times as long! Local restaurants unpredictable but antique shopping great! I was sick and in bed for most of our stay and was very comfortable. Thanks so much!

We had a wonderful time at the Wheeler By the Bay Motel! The owners are so kind and gracious and they really work hard at making your stay enjoyable. Free breakfast, free movies, candy in the room, and plenty of coffee! We will definately be back and tell everyone we know to stay there! It couldn't have been better...except if we would have caught a fish! Thanks again!

My wife and I chose this establishment to have a weekend away from the kids. Our room was spectacular! Our room's view was overlooking the bay. We woke up seeing otters and waterfowl splashing about while we drank our morning coffee. The weather sucked as it rained all weekend but the antique shops across the street were pleasantly enjoyable to browse through. Even as the fishing was as bad as the weather, I enjoyed soaking in the Jacuzzi, watching the wildlife from our deck, and just relaxing! I highly recommend Wheeler on the bay if you are wanting a quaint little place on the Oregon coast, you can't go wrong with Wheeler on the bay.

What a lovely place! My girlfriend and I stayed just one night but it was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the funkiness of the small town of Wheeler, and the quiet yet beautiful location on Nahelem bay (we could see the water from our bed!). Though this factor does not matter to many people, we are a same sex couple and the place felt friendly and non judgmental too us :) We will be back!!
4.2 on October 17, 2012
Very relaxing, clean room with many extra fancy, fun and comfortable features. We especially loved having the fireplace, jacuzzi and fridge, and the bed was very comfortable. Incredible hospitality from the owners, and a friendly, flexible atmosphere. Lots of wildlife was visible from the dock, with a lovely view of the bay and plenty of nearby restaurants, hiking, shops and beaches. We had a wonderful time.
3.2 on October 17, 2012
This is a quaint old fashioned motel that is great for a relaxing low key vacation. The only addition would be to have comfortable chairs in the rooms. The owners are exceptional and provide movies, pop, popcorn and breakfast. They are very accomodating go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. The available kayaks are fun as well when the weather is good!
5 on October 16, 2012
This was our third time staying here. We just love it. It is our favorite place to stay on the oregon coast. So warm, friendly, clean, and the perfect place to fish, crab, or just relax. We will be back as always. Stepan's

Loved the option of having the kayaks available with a two night stay. Loved the fireplace and soaking Tub. All local restaurants had excellent food and service!
4.4 on October 05, 2012
We always look forward to our annual fishing week at Wheeler on Bay. Next time we probably will reserve a bigger room; but the many additions you have provided are fabulous. You are the best hosts - friendly and helpful. We thank you and will be back. Mike anhd Lisa Brown
4.2 on October 04, 2012
Being able to moor our boat right there is a big plus for us. Pat and Tracy are wonderful and want your stay to be the best.
4.6 on October 02, 2012
Pat and Tracy were very helpful, hospitable, knowledgable about restaurants in the area and offer outstanding help with kayaking. They were extremely considerate and accommodating of our needs. They went the extra mile to be sure our stay was exceptional. We recommend this Inn. We were in room 8 overlooking the Bay. It was beautiful!
4.8 on September 28, 2012
Wheeler on the Bay was the perfect place for our Mother-Daughter stay. The coastal room had 2 bedrooms, a sitting area, table and chairs and kitchenette. We could not have had nicer or more attentive hosts! Our rooms were immaculate, freshly painted with special decor, lots of special touches --- coffees, creamers, teas, even candy, popcorn and sodas!! The view from the comfortable dock area was to die for! We stayed two nights and would gladly stay again!!! This place is a WINNER!
4.4 on September 26, 2012
We came to spend a weekend with friends and go crabbing and fishing. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They were very friendly and helped in any way they could. I didn't know I had to reserve a boat slip and the owner made room for me. We will definitely be staying here again.
4.2 on September 26, 2012
We had a great anniversary trip and this lodge was a great location. We had a great morning and enjoyed launching our kayaks just a few feet from our room for a great paddle up to Nehalem for lunch. Pat and Tracy were very nice and made sure we had a nice stay.
4.6 on September 17, 2012
If every family place took care of folks like this, the chains would be in a lot of trouble!
4.6 on September 14, 2012
This is a great little gettaway from the usual coastal summer explosion. We have been coming here for almost 20 years now. Never disappointed at the beautiful views offered from the motel. Out of the way but close to Seaside, Cannon Beach and all the amenties offered there. We hit the antique stores during the day and return to our very clean, neat room at night. Dining is limited but still some good choices.Family friendly.Pat and Tracy go out of their way to assist you in anyway they can. Talk about hard workers, and it shows, in the new renovations that have been done. Seeing is believing. Give it a try and you won't be disapointed.We love staying at Wheeler On the Bay. Scott and Colleen Ward

Cozy rooms on the water, nice owners, and so many included amenities make this the perfect way to visit Wheeler and Nehalem Bay. We arrived to a warm welcome from the owners, Pat & Tracy, who got us checked in and set up with the next morning's complementary breakfast items and our kayaking gear. I was really impressed that they had us file a float plan with them so that, if we ran into trouble and could not get help via the whistles included on the life vests, they would contact the coasties for help if we missed our return time. They really care about the safety and comfort of their patrons and put a lot of thought into it. There are so many amenities and features included with the room, let me see if I can list some for you: - Free kayaks!!!! (with 2 night stay or more), also crab traps and use of the dock for mooring, fishing, or just lolling around on the benches - Big, deep whirlpool sauna bath - A little table for two, a cabinet stocked with utensils, plates, napkins, etc..., microwave, mini fridge, TV, and DVD player - Charcoal grill outside (well maintained and cleaned) - Lots of nice, heavy towels (no cheap thin ones, yay!) - Really good coffee and lots of it in the room, along with a full size coffee maker - Free soda pop, popcorn, and snacks at the office - Free DVD's and games at the office - Free M&M's in the basket on the room table - Free breakfast, including a nice selection of seasonal fruits - Good, fast wifi (also good 3G reception) - Fireplace with timer and separate electric room heater - A nice little park next door and lots of marionberries and wildflowers (early Sept.) The bed was very comfortable and the bedding high quality. The room was very quiet. We'll be coming back weekend after next, only because next weekend is fully booked (so, make sure to reserve well ahead, they are popular!).

Despite a mix-up due to over-booking on our requested room, we had a pleasant stay at Wheeler on the Bay. The room met our expectations as far as cleanliness and comfort (certainly matched the Internet picture) and exceeded our expectations for QUIET! Very pleasant evening and the owners were most accommodating and did their best to make up for the need to move us to a different room than we reserved (no view). Wish we could have stay another day or two, but not possible. B & C from Molalla
4.6 on September 08, 2012
Spectacular views from the deck right in front of the room. Very clean, you'll find everything you need in the room. The perfect hide-away with nicest owners. Many possibilities to enjoy the coast and countryside (kayaking, hiking, ...). We'd love to be back soon, thank you for the amazing time at your place! Andreas & Rita, Switzerland

My wife, 11-year-old daughter and I had a wonderful time staying at the Wheeler On The Bay Lodge. The room was clean and comfortable. The hosts Pat & Tracy were very accommodating. We had a great time kayaking in the bay. We definitely plan on returning for another stay. Highly recommended.
4.0 on August 14, 2012
We stayed in the Sunset room and thought it was wonderful. There are three units facing the water. That made the trip for us. The kayaks were docked right outside our sliding door. The lodge tries very hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Beautiful scenery and a great stop to enjoy a small town and a pleasant river.
4.8 on August 09, 2012
Just came back from an overnight stay at Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. Big clean spotless room, wife very happy.
5 on August 06, 2012
We had a return visit this time and it again lived up to all our expectations the best being the attention to detail. Private deck, the deepest hot tub, all the little things that made the need to go out unnecessary. The owners are genuine, happy to see your return and help out with any and all questions. Our favorite place to relax, rejuvinate and revitalize our spirit.. Can't wait for the next visit!!!
4.4 on August 06, 2012
Great place to stay. The owners bent over backwards to please and help us. Would certainly go back again.
4.0 on July 29, 2012
Because the room is so small, the spa tub seems overkill - but it's probably nice in the winter. We had the end room, with our little deck facing the bay - wonderful! I'm not sure I'd like the other rooms as much. The free movies and popcorn and soda are great, but the tv is also quite small. They also provide free breakfast items -fresh fruit, Tillamook yogurt and packaged pastries - nothing fancy but it sure makes breakfast quick when you want to get out early to kayak. They generously offer free use of their kayaks - great if you need them but we have our own. The dock essentially right out our door made kayaking even more easy and enjoyable. Wheeler is such a tiny town that the tourists hardly stop there, which we consider a benefit. No crowds! Very quiet and relaxing. I'd be happy to stay there again.
5 on July 28, 2012
The place was charming, the owners were very nice, very helpful. The rooms were clean and decorated so nice. The view is awesome. We will stay with them again. The dining score I feel does not really count. They did supply plenty of breakfast items though. Which was nice. There was plenty of dining around.
4.6 on July 26, 2012
Tracy and Pat have put their heart and soul into making this place spectacular. The rooms are great, right down to the spa bath. They are most welcoming, and if you are a birder, you can sit on their boat landing and watch the bald eagles. I have marked the breakfast down, but then, at the end of the day lodges don't do breakfast so the fact that they do is great
4.6 on July 24, 2012
My wife and I had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone, thanks for a great time!
4.8 on July 22, 2012
My husband and I took one last trip to the coast before our son is due, and we had such a great time! Pat & Tracy took great care of us, made sure we had our breakfast and movie selections, and even showed us some of hte new renovations they've made to the place. They love what they do, and it shines through everything - they even started including regular M&M's instead of just peanut M&M's because their son pointed out that some people have peanut allergies :) Love this place, and will be coming back again as soon as our new son (and our time) allows :)
5 on July 22, 2012
VERY CLEAN, excellent prices, FABULOUS host ... Pat and Tracy pay attention to detail and they pamper their guests. This is the place to stay!! Quiet, great view, wonderful room, sweet bed and extras ... like M&Ms and free movies! Come to Wheeler to get away!
4.6 on July 20, 2012
My family and I stayed here as part of our trip through Northwestern Oregon on the 101. This place was excellent. The kids liked this place better than the chain hotels that had an indoor pool and that is saying something. The rooms were great, the owners are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and the view from the dock....BEAUTIFUL. My husband are I are already planning a get-away trip for just the two of us and this is definitly where we will stay!
4.6 on July 18, 2012
This is a great spot to stay and explore up and down the coast. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Room was cozy and loaded with snacks, fireplace, frig, and a lovely view out to the warf and bay. Kyaks are available, too. Fantastic value!
5 on July 17, 2012
The warm welcome home away from home establishment created by Pat and Tracy was so much more than we expected. Our Honeymoon suite was spacious full of Light and creative delight. At Wheeler Bay is a must stop over on your Oregon Coast adventure because it provides an amazing unforgettable view and allows you to be nestled in a part of the world that is soothing, relaxing, and full of comfort. Great hospitality, nights sleep, and stay. Thank you thank you. RVB
4.4 on July 16, 2012
From the first moment we arrived until our departure, Pat and Tracy went above and beyond to make our stay very special. My husband and I went fishing, and he caught a schnook salmon. We had a grill on the new deck for our room, and they provided the charcol and lighter to start the grill at no extra cost. They also marinated our filets for us. We were able to watch the sunset from our room. They also provided DVD's and snacks for out stay. Wheeler is a very small town, but it was such a wonderful experience to have such a relaxing experience with all the vry gracious and kind assistane from Pat and Tracy.

Wheeler on the Bay Lodge and Marina is located in a pristine spot on the Oregon Coast.
5 on July 09, 2012
Two nights at the Wheeler On The Bay Lodge capped our two-week exploration of western and coastal Oregon. It was appropriate that we ended here, because we saved the best for last. Tracy and Part (the hosts) were phenomenal. The room (Sunset) was cozy and well furnished, with a private deck that opened onto the water with sunset view. We could not have wished for anything better. Don't miss this gem of a stop...
3.6 on July 08, 2012
The owners made our stay very unique --- treats, movies and a smile always started our morning ----
4.6 on June 27, 2012
We've stayed at Wheeler on the Bay Lodge multiple times over the last 15 years and this was the best! Pat and Tracy have put a lot of effort into the lodge over the last several years and it is truly worth the modest rate they charge. From the quiet, comfortable, bright, clean room to the reconfigured patio above the dock, it's a great place to relax and hang out for a weekend or longer. . . Their breakfast plan allows you to enjoy your selected meal in your room on your own schedule--no waiting and bumping shoulders with others attempting to get their meals like continental breakfasts at many hotels. Pat and Tracy are friendly hosts and focused on making your stay enjoyable. We'll be back soon for more of their affordable hospitality.
4.4 on June 22, 2012
We loved our two-night stay here! Our room had everything we could want, especially an unobstructed, beautiful view of the river and background mountains from our sliding glass doors and huge private water front deck. Not all rooms have this view of course, so be sure to reserve in advance. The town of Wheeler is very unique and has several quant, local spots to eat. I picked this spot because of the kayaking, and we made good use of it. We even took an evening paddle up river (with the incoming tide) to eat pizza in Nehalem. Pat and Tracy were very friendly and helpful, recommending good places to eat and even other places to stay down the OR coast for the rest of our honeymoon. We really enjoyed the hospitality and location of this great family run spot!

Nice, quiet and clean. We stayed in the Glory Room, and it was fresh, colorful and well appointed. The owners leave countless homey touches, upscale "gratuitous" bath items, and the deep jacuzzi tub was a wonderful way to soak away the beach sand and sea salt. The ongoing remodel noise was courteously held to late mornings and afternoons, so don't let that concern you when you consider reservations.
5 on May 09, 2012
This was the second weekend that I have stayed at the Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. The owners make the stay so homey. It seems like they think of everything that you might need or even want. I will go there again and again!
4.8 on May 09, 2012
Celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary. This place exceeded our expectations. Quiet, clean and tastefully decorated. Attention to detail did not go unnoticed, Pat & Tracy have done a wonderful job of making their guests feel comfortable.
4.6 on May 09, 2012
I was looking for basic accommodations for a good price but Wheeler lodge completely exceeded my expectations. The room was very large, and the bed very comfy with really nice linens and loads of little extras to make your stay very pleasant.

We loved the view, the room was cute and clean, fabulous people, lots of additional amenities. We took a kayak out and explored the area - we would definitely return! Thanks

We enjoyed our time at the lodge. They really have thought of everything when it comes to amenities.
4.6 on April 13, 2012
My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon here, and it was such a beautiful stay. The lodge is beautiful, the room was perfect (stayed in the Sunset Suite), the jacuzzi was wonderful... I can't say enough good things about our stay. The town is quiet, small, and beautiful, and the lodge's proprietors are absolutely friendly and welcoming. They bend over backwards for their guests. I highly recommend this place. The wife and I are definitely going back!
4.6 on March 08, 2012
The Wheeler on the bay Lodge was an excellent choice for us. The honeymoon suite is a beautiful room with an equally beautiful view. There were no details left untouched and with free breakfast, cable, movie rentals, and Wi-Fi, what more could you ask for.
3.6 on February 28, 2012
We loved our stay at Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. The room was charming and very clean. Extra towels and blankets provided in the room - no begging at the front desk. The free movies, popcorn and treats is a fun touch from these inn keepers. I thought their idea for breakfast was creative - selection of 3 items that you took to your room in a little basket - road food for those that like a super early start or lovely for those who like to sleep in and might otherwise miss a prepared breakfast.
5 on February 24, 2012
We enjoyed our stay. Only wish the drapes/blind had been lined and bline black out. Other than that we had a great time. See you again. The room was clean, loved the fireplace, and enjoyed the breakfast in the room. It was a cozy room and made you feel warm and good.
4.4 on February 23, 2012
We stayed in the honeymoon suite and loved it. The view was so peaceful and kept us relaxed. It was exactly what we needed and we will be back. The caretakers are such hard workers and are sincere about wanting your stay to be a memorable one.
5 on February 19, 2012
I would recommend Wheeler on the Bay to absolutely ANYONE. Not only is the town adorable and the bay-front location beautiful, the customer service is out of this world. You can't go anywhere anymore and get the kind of service you will experience at the Lodge. My husband and I will be back, and we will be telling all our friends!
4.6 on February 08, 2012
Pat and Tracy were wonderful. Pat was very friendly at check in. She walked us to our room, and showed us everything. The room was very clean and well decorated. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a romantic place to stay on the Oregon coast.

We were warmly welcomed by the lovely innkeeper and made to feel at home. The view from our suite was superb and the view from the hot tub even better. We were surprised at how quiet it was at night; we did not hear the road noise at all. Great romantic hide-a-way. We will be back to see how the repairs to the deck and landscaping progress and to take advantage of those kayaks in the spring.
4.4 on January 21, 2012
We stayed at Wheeler Lodge over New Years. I was expecting an older marginal room for the rate and what I found was a gem hidden away in a town we always drive through. The room was newly renovated and contained everything you could ever want. The owners saw to small details that made the stay surprisingly refreshing. From the jetted tub, to a kitchenette that had everything at your disposal to the impeccable linens we were delighted. I would highly recommend a stay at the lodge. I cant wait to come back in the summer for some fishing on the water.

Very friendly innkeepers. They are extremely helpful and generous; they helped make our stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. Fun quirky beach place, but with great big clean rooms. They have unique style (not the run-of-the-mill beach resort type place), which we appreciate very much! We stayed in the Honeymoon Room overlooking the water. We loved the jacuzzi tub where we had a view of the ocean from sitting in the tub. Great comfortable bed too, and warm fireplace. We felt that we received great accommodations for the price and we will definitely be back!
4.6 on November 28, 2011
My wife and I spent two nights at Wheeler on The Bay Lodge. Management was very friendly and ensured we were informed on the area restaurants. We dined locally and my only wish would be more seafood on the menus. We will return to this lodge on another vacation.
5 on November 17, 2011
This was the perfect getaway. Such a nice little town without all the hustle of the other beach towns we have stayed at. We were actually able to relax like we haven't in years. Fantastic service, like nothing I have ever experienced even in the nicest hotels. Beautiful views all around. This will a place we will go to often.

What a delightful place. I've recommended it to several family members and friends. Will definitely go back.
4.2 on October 21, 2011
Our 3 day stay was excellent indeed. The rooms are very clean and well taken care of. The bed was very easy to sleep in, with the clean silky sheet and the added blankets. The spa tub was a great way to start or finish the day. Each day we were given 3 convenience food items for our free breakfast. If you love movies popcorn and candy this is also free with a 2 movies per room and unlimited returns. Kayaking on in the bay is also free and a good way to relax in natural surroundings. Shopping around the area is some what limited, so expect to travel a few extra miles. The local winery was a nice place to stop off for a little taste of your favorite wine or check out their wine tasting! Then choose your beach, go north 3 miles of south 5-6 miles. There is a state park near by with horse back riding we will have to check out next time. Over all it was clean, relaxing, and fun!
4.2 on October 03, 2011
More ammenities than we expected. The room was better, the tub was fabulous, and the dock is great to sit on and relax. Cant wait to go back!
5 on September 25, 2011
We always enjoy our trips to Wheeler Lodge. This time we took a kayak trip from the lodge to Nehalem for lunch. Last kayak trip we got engaged! The kayaks being free for 2 nights of lodging really helps so we don't have to bring our own. We recommend the Necky Gannet kayaks they offer because they are very stable for beginners. The Honeymoon Suite #7 is an awesome room with it's tub for 2 and a private covered porch which we take advantage of. We think the Glory Suite is the best value because it has a separate Tub room that is closed off from the bedroom which for me doubles as an art room when I get up in the night and do pastels while she sleeps. Our favorite is really the Sunset Room where we first stayed 6 years ago and since Pat & Tracy, a delightful couple have been there, all the rooms and service have increased dramatically. We love to stay there and will be back ASAP.
5 on September 22, 2011
i would recommend any one to stay here if you are looking for peace and quiet away from the city! Pat and tracery the hosts went an extra mile to make sure our stay was comfortable and they answered any questions we had about local spots to crab, eat, and sites to check out. The price for what you get is very affordable.
4.8 on September 15, 2011
We have stayed here numerous times, our favorite suite is the Glory Suite. This suite has a little kitchen area, and a "sun room" which is a little seperate sitting area and spa tub is located there. Everything is clean, clean, clean!!! It is the perfect location for a romantic getaway, to fishing & crabbing. Pat and Tracy are awesome hosts! Extremely friendly, & they understand that when we are there we like our privacy and they respect that 100%. We can't wait to return, the rates are a little bit less expensive in the off season, & since we live only a couple hours away we take full advantage of it! If you like quaint, cozy and comfortable you will love it here!
4.4 on September 14, 2011
I hesitate to give a good review because Wheeler on the Bay will become overcrowded with tourists! The place is outstanding in every way. We didn't try Rising Star and perhaps that is the best restaurant for dinner, otherwise dinner dining was lacking.
4.6 on September 13, 2011
I picked Wheeler on the Bay Lodge over the internet for a night stay with my sisters who were coming from the Kansas City area, they have never been to the Pacific Northwest. I drove from Portland to Astoria then down the coast and arrived late to Wheeler on the Bay Lodge...we were pleasantly suprised. Pat and Tracy were very friendly, the room was VERY CLEAN and the beds were more than comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful one night stay and I will spread the word to people coming to the beach about Wheeler on the Bay Lodge.
4.6 on September 08, 2011
The Wheeler on the Bay was ADORABLE! The couple that run it is soooo sweet and the rooms are cozy, thoughtfully decorated, and WELL STOCKED. We loved the view from the dock, as well as the tub in our room! Will definitely be back and will definitely send friends there! Thanks
4.4 on September 07, 2011
This wonderful lodge just keeps getting better and better. I stayed down here in April 2011 by myself and the ambience of a fireplace and free movies was delightful in taking off the chill, damp air. This trip, I brought my husband and another couple. We were delighted in the service, the quality and value for the money. Its obvious that the new owners are putting in lots of small details and accessories to make it a more pleasant stay. Thank you

Wheeler the the Bay Lodge is truly a gem! The facilities were clean, quaint and comfortable - an extremely homey atmosphere; not hotelish/motelish in the least. The service was very friendly and courteous. The setting was relaxing and peaceful. Breakfast was perfect. Free rental DVD's with complimentary popcorn, soda to go with. Value was very, very good. We were a party of 10 who had just completed the Portland to Coast Relay - 130 miles - and it was so nice to crash at a place that felt more like we were staying at a friends house, then a place of lodging. We were much impressed and will definitely be back!

A laid back stay, hospitality was awesome, at dusk the herons came in for their nightly feeding which made for great pictures. I have already recommended Wheeler on the Bay to our friends and co-workers.
3.4 on August 29, 2011
Loved the movie selections, the extra goodies - popcorn, candy, etc and the casual environment. Fully intend to come next year. Only complaint was the use of plywood instead of box springs in the "Taste of Tuscany" room. This is why I gave it a two bubble rating instead of the three or four this nice big room otherwise desired. Hopefully this is temporary situation.
2.8 on August 29, 2011
Nice dock to sit on and watch day end. room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Amenities were silly - most minimal gas fireplace, most minimal outside patio, etc. Next time will seach on slow food/slow travel sites and look for more interesting places to stay and dine.

When we drove up to the Wheeler on the Bay Lodge late at night, we were a bit surprised by the rustic appearance of the exterior. It did not look at all like the pictures and initially appeared rustic, and somewhat run down. We were very pleasantly surprised when we were escorted to our room to see a tastefully decorated, absolutely impeccable room! It was spotless. The mirrors and metal surfaces gleamed. The shower and bathroom was fresh, aired out, well appointed & squeaky clean. The memory foam mattress was comfortable in a strange way but perhaps better for those with a smaller size. Paint was fresh and paintings were by local artists and appropriately themed. Linens were high quality,pressed and luxurious. Breakfast was provided by the inkeepers but not in the standard way. At check in we were asked to pick out 3 choices for breakfast which we would then take to our room and prepare ourselves.Our choices included: sausage and egg muffin, bear claw type pastries, cereal or oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt. The room was equipped with a spotless coffee maker, tea, and hot chocolate, as well as M&M's and some Peppermint patties. It also had a sink, dish detergent, dishes, microwave, refrigerator, and all of the things you need to heat up your own instant meal. Our inkeeper was very attentive and at check out he made sure to ask if anything needed repairs, etc.etc. He was genuinely interested in the quality of our stay. In the daylight, we could see the bay and realized that despite our initial concern, that the inn is beautifully situated on an inlet filled with plenty of wildlife and lovely scenery. Our stay was pleasant, quiet, and comfortable, and this was the cleanest inn or hotel room that I have ever been in, and that includes 5 star hotels in Europe. We will definitely go back if we're in the area.

The hostess is definitely there to please. They are always ready to help in one way or another. The views are beautiful and the convenience to the dock for fishing or kayaking is super.
4.0 on August 22, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay. It's a small hotel right on the bay water, with adirondack chairs and a nice deck for watching the sunset. The inkeepers were friendly and thorough, and the room was in great shape. Lots of little touches made it feel more like a b&b. Within a block of 2 great restaurants. We liked the semi-private deck right outside our room.
4.2 on August 22, 2011
Friendly, family run lodging. Located in small town on beautiful bay. Nice and quiet. If relaxing and/or fishing is your thing, this is the place.

I was very impressed with the hospitality, character of the place and the charm and cleanliness of the room itself. It has been a long time since I have been treated this well. I will return to this place and I will recommend it to my friends as well !!!

We were pleasantly surprised by the gracious and welcoming hosts. This was perfect lodging for my family, including my three and one year old. We will return for another visit.

I was taken back by the beautiful view of the marina and the free kayaking was really a selling point for me. The service provided by the Inn Keepers was impeccable. They were very sweet and family oriented. Both Pat and Tracy seemed like people who would bend over backwards for their clientele, which is truly and experience so rarely afforded. Next time I'm in the area I will most certainly stay there again. However, if I had to pick anything that needs improvement I would suggest a more comfortable bed, as I am light sleeper and can't sleep well on firm mattresses such as this one, and it would have been nice to have a larger, more modern tv. I felt like this tv was too small and far away from the viewing area. Also, the color was slightly off. Maybe I'm just used to the luxury of hd tvs.
4.2 on August 13, 2011
What a great place for family and friends to relax and have a great time. The view is fantastic and the hosts are more than welcoming. We will be back!
4.6 on August 08, 2011
My mother, sister, and I stayed at Wheeler for one night while driving along the Oregon coast- what a beautiful and quaint location. We sat on their dock in the evening drinking local wine, eating local cheese and fruit, and had a GREAT time. There is lots to do within 15 minutes of the area- several parks, wineries, and towns and beaches.

We were looking for a quiet, romantic place to stay for our Anniversary when I ran across Wheeler On The Bay. I loved that the rooms had fireplaces and spa tubs. I read the reviews and decided to book based on the glowing reviews of service and cleanliness. When we arrived Pat was friendly, checked us in quickly and explained how things work. He then took us to the EXTENSIVE Video Room and loaded us up with movies, popcorn, candy and sodas. We all walked to our room, with Pat helping to carry some of our things. We had elected to stay in the Ebb Tide room and it was delightful! In fact I would say the pictures of the place on the website do not do it justice. The entire place is charming and the view is gorgeous! We stayed Friday-Monday taking advantage of the kayaking, fireplace, spa tub & video room often! Pat and Tracy were so friendly and kind, the view is so amazing (and only 5 min to the beach), the town is adorable with several good restaurants withing a 2-5 minute walk and the room was perfect! We WILL be returning with (and without) our kids! I would 100% recommend Wheeler On The Bay to anyone! Thank you to the Scribners for a WONDERFUL romantic getaway!
4.2 on August 03, 2011
The view, the hospitality and the private tub spa cant be beat, especially for the price. We were referred by friends and we wouldnt hesitate to go back.

This is a great little hotel in a quaint little town. We had never been to Wheeler before, and we were very happy with the hotel and especially with the service. The owners are very helpful and were great with our small children. The room was nice - the sunken, jetted tub was great! Having a kitchenette is also very convenient. The bayfront is a lovely place to watch the sunset. While the breakfast items that come with the room are nothing fancy, it is still nice to have food available when traveling with children. And there are restaurants very nearby for those who prefer a larger breakfast. All in all, it was a great visit, and we'll definitely be back!
4.6 on August 02, 2011
This was a perfect, simple place for my family (husband and two young kids). The hosts were wonderful and very accommodating. It was peaceful and a great value! Stay in Room 7 if you get a chance-- nice view and has its own porch overlooking the water. We will be back.
4.4 on August 01, 2011
Our family of 5 stayed here at the end of July while traveling down the Oregon Coast. The hosts were amazing and offered a lot of little extras like free popcorn an sodas, movie and game rentals, and a selection of coffees, teas, and other snacks in the room. My kids loved picking out their breakfast goodies and said it felt like being at home. Some of the local restaurants also offer a discount on the meal for staying at the Wheeler. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.
5 on July 31, 2011
We loved the views! The owners made us feel so welcome. They give you a sack breakfast, and there were so many little touches in the room. Loved sitting out on there private dock, and food is only a walk across the street. Wheeler is such a cute little town, and the people are so friendly. We can't wait to go back!
4.4 on July 29, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. Wish we could have stayed longer. Great location with nice restaurants and shopping across the street. Easy access to coastal towns, beaches and state parks. I recommended Wheeler On the Bay Lodge to my family.

The innkeepers were attentive to your every need. They went beyond the normal service levels you tend to expect. They did respect your privacy, but were there when you needed something. They were friendly and genuinely care about the guests.

Pat and Tracy and so friendly and helpful. Despite our rained out kayak trip we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We'll be back!

Good room, very clean, good location and great service, its worth the $
4.6 on July 08, 2011
Tracy made our 3 day stay so enjoyable from start to finish. She is so friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. If your looking for a lot of attention she's there, if you prefer privicy she will see to that also. A great place to stay; we will return.
4.4 on July 03, 2011
The brown-bag-breakfast was the only negative, but there was an absolutely wonderful breakfast place in Manzanita (not far away) that was worth every penny -- Wanda's. Hopefully Wheeler on the Bay Lodge will be able to offer a discount there soon! Tracy was so helpful & charming! The room we had was wonderful -- best stocked room ever!! And the location was very beautiful & restful.
4.0 on June 30, 2011
We were very pleasantly surprised by the homey little suite and the breathtaking view of the bay and wildlife. The breakfast set up(pick 3 items the night before to take to your room for the next morning) is smart for people who would like a healthy breakfast on the go, and the movie/candy scene (free with the room) delighted our kids. We didn't get to go Kayaking, but we certainly will next time. A really nice restaurant next door, very accomodating and friendly owners, and the stay was complete. No palace but good value for the price, and everything we needed at hand. highly recommended.
5 on June 29, 2011
Me and my husband stayed at WOTB for a week and it was a great place to stay. The rooms are super clean and you get lots of little extras with your room. The owners are very friendly, helpful and nice. We are thinking of going back in the fall and seeing if we can get a some friends to go with us. Wheeler is a small town but nice town and you can travel a few miles and you are on the beach and a larger town. Thank you Pat and Tracy for the great job you are doing.
5 on June 23, 2011
We went to Wheeler on the Bay for our honeymoon and had an amazing time! The owners are wonderful hosts and you feel truly welcome. There are so many little touches that made the stay extra special. I can't imagine getting nicer accommodations or better treatment at any establishment, and WOTB is very reasonably priced for the luxurious get-away that it provides! We loved dining, hiking, walking on the beach, driving along the coast, spending a day in Seaside...there is also free Kayaking! I highly recommend Wheeler on the Bay, especially for a romantic trip.
4.6 on June 16, 2011
The owners are very friendly and the room was spotless. It was a slow weekend so we had the place mostly to ourselves. A very relaxing weekend with the dock and water, free movies for the room and speedy internet service. I'd c ome back for sure.
3.2 on June 11, 2011
Nice room and view. Dining in the area was limited. We were hoping for more water sports in the area - kayaking was limited, no sailing or paddle boarding, no boats to rent. Nice place to stay, but a long ways from anything to be worth repeating.
5 on June 02, 2011
The couple that run Wheeler By the Bay are very friendly and helpful. It was a delight to stay there and we will definitely be back!
4.6 on May 31, 2011
We needed a place close to our parents in rehab. and this place met all of our needs, plus. The complimentary breakfast (so many choices) and free movies with popcorn and drink was great; made us feel like kids again. We would highly recommend it.
4.2 on May 28, 2011
We loved Wheeler on the Bay Lodge! Wheeler is such a cute little town and EVERY single person we encountered there were so nice and friendly! Pat and Tracy made us feel like we were at home and were very attentive. They went out of their way to make sure our anniversary weekend was relaxing, romantic, and fun. The Glory Suite has a GORGEOUS view--you don't even need to get out of bed to enjoy the beautiful views of the Nehalem River and Neahkahnkie Mountain!! It was so nice to take a litte soak in the jacuzzi tub every night while sipping on the sparkling cider Tracy surprised us with in our fridge. So sweet of her! The acitivites the lodge offers for FREE were awesome! Free movies to choose from (even new ones!) and as much soda and snackies you want. We were so excited for the opportunity to use the kayaks anytime we wanted for free with our minimum 2 night stay. Thanks to Pat for the words of encouragement! Getting into a kayak is kind of scary!! :) There are several restaurants and cafes next to and across the street from the lodge to enjoy breakfast (unless you'd like to eat breakfast in your room from the choices on the lodge's list), lunch, and dinner--all with a great view! We WILL be back and are looking forward to it!

Start with a weekend in an idyllic bay-side community. Add one spacious room with a touch of spa. Generously sprinkle with friendly service from the innkeepers. Top with quality food from local restaurant. Marinate.

A perfect 3 days, beautiful view, comfortable bed, lots of extras-two kinds of tea for rainy afternoons, wine glasses, DVDs, plush towels- and the elk were an amazing hit.

Room was very, very clean. Inn hostess was very helpful and nice. We have been staying here for 12 years or more and love it. They area is not full of tourists, local people are so friendly. Will stay here again. Rooms are so cute.

Pat and Tracy were the friendliest and best hosts a person could want, They made us feel at home and exceeded all expectations. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. If You are looking for the perfect place to stay... This is it!!!!! We are gonna make this our destination for future coast visits and highly recommend to others.
3.4 on April 27, 2011
Service was outstanding. Huge selection of free movies. Comfortable beds. Free coffee, hot chocolote, apple cider, tea in room. Wheeler is cute town with lots of antique shops. They did a great job converting a motel into a B&B. Breakfast is very simple and you take the food to your room the night before. Would have enjoyed a proper sit down breakfast in a common area.
4.6 on April 27, 2011
What a terrific lodge! We've stayed at many places on the Oregon coast, and nothing beats Wheeler on the Bay. Great location (yes, it really is on the bay), quiet and delightful in every way. Hosts Pat and Tracy love what they do and it shows. They go out of their way to please everyone and make you feel at home. They give you a nice continental breakfast each day with six options to choose from. The room had a fireplace, DVD player and its own deck. If you want to watch a movie, DVDs are free, along with popcorn and soda. Best of all, my wife and I got to kayak for free since we stayed two nights. We paddled to the island across the way and had a terrific time thanks to Pat's advice. I'm looking forward to staying here again. I don't think I'd stay anywhere else on the coast. You won't either once you stay here. Barry & Melissa Cadish

I have thoroughly enjoyed three stays at Wheeler Lodge over the past six years and will do so again on my next visit to the area. The site is outstanding in natural beauty and charm and the new hosts couldn't be more accommodating and friendly; they're doing their best to provide every need one could wish and are upgrading and improving somewhat old-fashioned facilities. The little town and the mid north Coast area are a delight; dining out is rather limited but good solid food is provided at a number of places nearby. My wife and I recommend Wheeler Lodge heartily and we didn't even see any elk or seals this time.
4.2 on April 21, 2011
Docking our boat where we stayed was VERY conveniant!!! Also having the boat launch next door was a great plus! A very wonderful quiet place to be, considering it was spring break!! It was great. Thanks
4.6 on April 17, 2011
This was our second stay at the Wheeler On The Bay Lodge. We were even more impressed with the room, the service, the views, the wildlife and the innkeepers than we were the first time. Service is outstanding! Pat and Tracy make sure your stay is the best and are constantly available for information or anything you might need in your room. The weekend we happened to be there was also when a large herd of elk decided to visit the island we could see right from our room. We spent all three days of our visit watching them, along with the birds and waterfowl, sea otters and seals. It was a great trip! Thank you Pat and Tracy - we'll be back soon!!

Pat and Tracy are awesome hosts. We have stayed there twice now and had a great experience both times. Wheeler is small, but you are only 20 minutes from Seaside or Tillamook. However, you don't really need to go anywhere with great food and antique shops right across the street. We will definately stay there again!!

Although there was some rain, there was still a lot to do in the area for my 11 year old.

The people, the service, the atmosphere was awesome. You will not find a better place to stay around here. And the prices were the same if not cheaper than all the other nearby places, but with 5 star service. You will not regret your stay!

What a wonderful place to relax and leave your everday stress behind. Pat and Tracy were very helpful and nice. It felt like home, but better. Loved the Spa Tub in our room and loved the view. It is located close to many other points of difference in the area (like the Tillamook cheese factory and the Tillamook Air museum). Plan to tell my friends and go back there again soon.

We hardly left our room! We are in love with this little place! The location is beautiful, right on the bay and so quiet yet easy driving distance to entertaining destinations. The inn keepers are the best!! All they want is for people to enjoy their stay! Always helpful and very kind and friendly. This is a family operation where you really feel like part of the family! The rooms are so cozy and the price for a spa room can not be beaten on the Oregon Coast! They are making updates so if you have stayed before it is worth a return trip!!
3.8 on February 23, 2011
Although Wheeler isn't right on the ocean, it's a wonderful beach get-a-way. Close to Nehalem Bay State Park with a great beach, good kayaking and crabbing on the bay, Manzanita and all it's little shops is close by and if you're a birder, check out the sewage ponds. The room was comfortable and has a gas fireplace, the beds were really comfortable, they provide breakfast and free kayaks with a two-night stay, but there's one drawback - no tub in the room we were in. Other than that, I say this is a good place to stay.
3.8 on February 22, 2011
My wife and I stayed three nights, for Valentines. I picked the SUNSET room based off previous reviews, and it exceeded my expectation for 'romance'. The lodge is located in a tiny, seclude Oregon Coastal town of less than 400 people. And it is not ideally located if you are looking for "big city" shopping. Good thing for us that we wanted to get away from all that. The owners are about the nicest couple we've ever met at a Bed and Breakfast. She was so kind, thoughtful and helpful throughout our entire stay. The SPA tub in room was lovely so great; it rained every night ~ which provided a WONDERFUL experience, soaking up the HOT while listening to the Rain outside. (and it was COLD out there) We took a tour of many of the other rooms at the Wheeler lodge, and I'm looking forward to our next stay when we bring the kids. OR NOT! John McDaniel II

Wheeler on the Bay Lodge is fantastic! We love the cozy rooms, relaxing spa, toasty fireplaces and hospitality of Tracy and Pat. It is so enjoyable to get away and relax for a few days, with fantastic service, friendly faces, and nearby access to excellent food, outdoors activities and shopping. Book a room today!

My boyfriend and I stayed here two days and love the homy feeling Pat and Tracy give this place and talk about going 100% you just can't beat the treatmentTracy gives she has got to be the best I have seen and I have traveled the world.The roomes are squeeky clean everywhere too.This is a must place to stay if you anywhere near this area.

My wife and I stayed in the sunset room. It was very relaxing, she loved the tub. It basically was a very nicely decorated studio type suite with an awesome tub in it. Its a quiet location, right on the river and it was peaceful waking up to the sight of the river right outside our door. They put a lot of goodies in your room like coffee, candy and mints. You get to pick 3 breakfast items every morning and you take it to your room at night for the next morning. My favorite item was there in plenty, hot cocoa ... mmm yumm... it was right there in the room. The free movie rental is cool, there is a "video store" which is basically a family lifelong collection of movies, we are talking probably a few hundred movies to choose from all layed out like being at a rental store. Was pretty neat!...best part is they were free to watch. The food around town, not too sure about we went to one place which was next door and it wasnt too impressive, was just average food. But all in all loved the place and the hosts are very friendly and take pride in the place. I highly recommend this place. We are planning on staying again for sure!
4.8 on January 28, 2011
Tracy wet out of her way to exceed the norm,you will not believe how friendly this place is and supper supper clean.If you have any reservations about this place they will fade once you meet Tracy and Pat and they take you inside.Somehow I just can't put it in words you will have to visit them to see what I mean.

Tracy and Pat take an incredible amount of pride in their business and it shows. The rooms are squeaky clean and any need is immediately attended to. We often stay for more than a week at a time and we are still treated with fresh enthusiasm at each visit.

Our stay was everything we hoped it would be. The room was exactly what a bed and breakfast should be. It was warm and inviting with a beautiful quilt on the bed rather than a clinical mass produced bedspread. It was storming during our visit so we didn't use our private deck but the view was great for storm watching. The Innkeepers were very helpful and friendly. They gave us the option of daily maid service on checkin, we opted to decline since we prefer not to be bothered and we got exactly what we wanted. The room was clean and fully stocked with towels toiletries, even dishes so we didn't need to ask for anything. The room was a terrific value and if you are looking for a nice relaxing getaway I highly recomend it. For entertainment the front desk had movies, books and games available to borrow free of charge. Including new releases. Wheeler is in a nice central location on the coast for traveling both north and south for shopping or sightseeing, and we did just that. The only less than outstanding rating I gave was for dining and that is simply because the dining is not onsite and we dinned at various places along our travel so it really has no bearing on the lodge.
4.6 on December 27, 2010
It was a wonderful place to stay, and we'll be back. One comment for repair: some of the deck boards on the nearest dock are getting pretty soft and need replacement before someone breaks through.

I was thrilled to book a very inexpensive last-minute stay here, excited about the fireplace, spa, TV, & breakfast included. Having the spa tub in-room was nice, but everything else was on the discount side of my B&B experiences. Cheap carpet, plastic flowers, small TV, small fireplace, and the "breakfast" is a pick of instant oatmeal and other pre-packaged gas-station finds. Overall, a discount/economy version of the cozy & romantic getaway I'd hoped for. The staff is very kind and friendly, and it is clean. As a cash-strapped pair of college newlyweds, we would have been grateful to find it...it's just been a long time since then. ;)

This place is my all time favorite. The owners / Inn keepers are very hospitable, and will make every effort to assist you with your needs. The rooms are very well maintained and clean. You cant beat the view or ambiance Wheeler has offer. The river is packed full of fish or you can head out to the ocean, a guide will come to pick you up right at your room/dock. My girlfriend and I tried scuba diving up there this time. The diving was not the best (due to a storm) but the owners were very helpful in attempting to find us another local dive site. I would recommend this place to anyone and I will definitely stay here again...
2.8 on November 03, 2010
The location by the water was very pleasant. They have a very strange breakfast arrangement. You get to pick 3 items and take them to your room. The room was pleasant, but the bed was so high it was hard to climb into if you were short. My husband loved the room. I thought it was OK, but not one of my absolute favorites.

So thrilled with the room and location, was just perfect, will be going there again, that is for sure!

I was in the otter room. It did not have a closet or easy place to hang clothes other than 3 hooks. Other than that it was fine. Wonderful service and solid value. I expect a clean room and yours was. The area dining and all of your little things to make our stay nice were great.

My husband and I recently stayed in the "Glory Suite" at Wheeler on the Bay Lodge. It was wonderful. We had our own little solarium with huge spa tub that was incredibly relaxing! Great views of the river from both our bedroom and the solarium. The room also has a small refrigerator, coffeemaker, and microwave. They stocked us with plenty of snacks, like free microwave popcorn and pop. The breakfast is not a hot cooked meal but they offer fruit, instant oatmeal, breakfast bars, etc., which was just fine with us. They are very clear during the reservations process so we knew exactly what to expect. There is a wonderful little cafe "Rising Star" a 5 min walk just across the road anyways. Pat and Tracy are very warm and friendly and responded to any request we had. It was soooo peaceful to sit on the deck and watch the river wildlife. We literally saw fish jumping out of the water. We'll definitely return.
4.2 on September 28, 2010
Our stay was very comfortable. The view was great. All the staff were very helpful. We plan to return in the future.

Last year our car stayed park, this year, due to lots of rain, we took our car out once. We managed to kayak everyday, ate in town at the Tsunami (delish), played games with friends AND did some watercolor painting in the spa room that overlooked the water-perfect mini art studio. We can't wait to go back. Having a room with a little kitchenette was great and we had enough room to play games with our friends that had the room next door. They were so happy we told them about Wheeler on the Bay. Next year, we may take 3 rooms!

I decided to head down the OR coast for the Labor Day weekend in order to unwind and relax. I initially chose Wheeler on the Bay Lodge because of their free kayak rental special. I ended up loving this place because the service is pretty great. I called a few days before my arrival and inquired about getting a larger room. Although all rooms were booked, they called around and were able to find a group that was willing to switch with us. They go the extra mile, which I really appreciated. The room was great. The free snacks and breakfast items were also very nice. Being able to grab a kayak and go whenever was also great. The place is situated midway between Tillamook and Seaside, which is nice because it was easy to head down and spend the day a Rockaway Beach and then go back up and have dinner in Seaside. Being patrons of the lodge also got us discounts at the restaurants across the street. I will definitely patron Wheeler on the Bay Lodge again.

We stayed one night during our honeymoon. The view was beautiful, our room looked out on the water. The room was comfortable and I really enjoyed the jetted tub. The room was stocked with wine glasses, dishes, mini fridge and microwave so we could manage to stay in for the night. The decor was a little dated and mismatched in my opinion but we all have different tastes. The owners were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The dining consisted of our choice 3 items from a small selection of items for breakfast: yogurt, cereal, milk, juice, fruit, danish (all prepackaged in small sizes) I wouldn't call it a bed and breakfast- we aren't big eaters but ate out for breakfast an hour after checking out. The location was a little disapointing we were hungry when we arrived at 215pm on a Monday and 5 restuarants in the near vacinity were all closed. As far as value was concerned i was happy with it, but as our week progressed and I compared it to other locations I feel like we overpaid. In the off season I would go back but summer rates were to high for what we got out of it.

Wheeler on the Bay is a great place with amaizng hospitality, so friendly it's almost like staying with family. The price is excellent, free movies and breakfast, many rooms have spas and fireplaces in them, with beautiful views of the bay! You can go kayaking and crabbing, shopping and dining all close by on foot!

Booked this room as a last minute getaway with my wife. Staff is very friendly and kind. Our room was on the end, facing the bay and had a nice view. Main problem was a lack of privacy. The door to the room was a large sliding glass door with vertical blinds that were broken and didn't close all the way - leaving room for peeking in. Also, walls were paper thin and we could hear the TV loudly in the room next door. Decor was cheesy and overdone. 4 miles up the road is Manzanita with tons of vacation homes at a better value. Again, nice folks running the place - just not the best value around.

My husband and I had the most relaxing vacation at Wheeler on the Bay. We parked our car, unloaded our things, took down our kayak and stayed for unbelievable sunsets, cozy room, gracious hosts, and wildlife watching. We took our kayak out sometimes twice a day. The dock was right outside our room. We walked the little town. Found places to eat (breakfast was provided) and felt relaxed.

Pat and Tracy certainly go the extra mile to make visitors feel welcome. The "little extras" like free movies, free treats, and their genuine concern for our comfort made our 2 night stay one we will cherish for a long time.

What relief!, When our son told us that they were getting Married and that her family was going to take advantage of the vacation they had been planning for a year on the Oregon coast and have a wedding on the beach. I feared the worst in what it was going to cost me to get space for 10 people from the groom's side of the family. My wife found Wheeler on the Bay and it was an answer to prayer. Not only was this the best value we could find in 100 miles, Pat and Tracy went out of their way to make sure that we had a great stay. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters (sleeps 10), and while the stairs were a little steep for Mom, it just added to the coastal charm that is present in each room. Every thing was clean and fresh, and the movie selections provided distraction when needed. If we come to the Oregon Coast again, we know where we want to stay for sure. Be sure and take advantage of the kayaks! What and Awesome trip! Thanks you Pat and Tracy!

Great website lured me in, great value for my bucks sealed the deal. Great experience with view of calm water, birds, elk and the care of genuinely friendly innkeepers ensure I'll return.

Spotless accommodations located on a scenic bay. Owners go out of their way to please you. Very comfortable sleeping in this sleepy little town. Would revisit!

What a pleasant surprise! I had never been to Wheeler and didn't know what to expect. Tracy and Pat make you feel like a very special part of family. The rooms are spotless and cosy. Very comfortable beds and quiet. When they found out it was my friends birthday, they put a couple of special touches in the room. We had a free movie rental and I doubt we could have found anything half as nice for the very reasonable price. We had a great stay and will definitely be back. Didn't eat there, so I can't rate the dining but everything else was outstanding.

Everything was so nice and quiet, with nothing but smiles and care. We will be back often.
