Old Wheeler Hotel

495 Highway 101 , Wheeler, 97147 USA (Show map)


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

Delightful B&B

4.2 on October 18, 2016

This was a delightful place to stay, good beds, wonderful location, nice onsite continental breakfast, good coffee. What really made the place especially nice for us was Kate! She had answers for all our questions and was really helpful with recommendations for meals and local attractions. We will definitely be staying there again.

Perfect two days

Spent two perfect days in Wheeler. The hotel is right across from the bay and boat launch. It was lovely and peaceful just to watch the little boats come and go as well as fishermen on the dock. There is a pleasant city park with several benches and tables, perfect for reading or a picnic. The hotel breakfast was plentiful. A little sandwich shop downstairs met our lunchtime needs and my new favorite bar is the Tsunami Bar and Grill across the highway from the hotel. It sits on the tide flats with spectacular views. There is lots to do up and down the coast from Wheeler - a perfect peaceful place for a short vacation.

Peaceful quiet getaway with excellences

Our stay was perfect. The old hotel is a must on anyone's list who travel. The surrounding towns are enjoyable. A great place to relax and take in the coast. The host was outstanding and I would stay here again. The antique shops below and coffeehouse are a nice venue also.

Kate Neal and Rob St. Helen are the best! They go above and beyond, accommodating and friendly, not to mention hilarious! They remember every guests name and make everyone feel as if you are the only one there they care about. Highly recommend this beautiful place!

Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff is always very helpful. The kitchen area is nice to relax and enjoy the peaceful view. It has a fridge available for the guests to use. We love shopping in the area. Antiques, coffee shop, gift shop... and the Rising Star Café is to die for! Wheeler Marina just across the street is a great place to rent boats, crabbing supplies and kayaks. Sound proof windows do the trick!

Old Wheeler, a gem in the Coast Highway crown

Stayed in Room #5. Such a nice place great old charm would stay again for sure. If your a lite sleeper the rooms are very close with thin walls and our room had a door in the bath which adjoined the other room but was locked of course. I had no noise issues because I'm sure the quality of guest are respectful and non noisy. Great staff, Super nice. Was wishing for home bake goods in the morning but just pre-packed. Coffee was great Kate was the best.

Fabulous time.

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

A sweet old hotel

We loved the friendly staff and the unique rooms. Breakfast and evening tea in the upstairs tea room was very nice.
