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!

Hotel review

5 on September 27, 2017

This is a beautiful old hotel! The thoughtful color and arrangement of antiques is wonderful. Our room (2) has a wonderful view of the bay, and although the hotel is on 101, the windows are soundproof and all you get is the bay, the trees, the sky and weather. Everything is very thoughtfully placed. Manager was a wonderful person who I enjoyed meeting. We'll stay here again. I wish they had a holiday New Years package! There is no insight dining, but there's a wonderful breakfast room where a nice continental breakfast is served.

Simply Amazing

We cannot say enough about this place. Immaculate, friendly, homey, breathtaking, exquisite antiques throughout. Such a wonderful owner who greeted everyone so appreciative for staying with her. She is what makes the stay so wonderful. We would never stay anywhere else when we come through the area & we will never forget this amazing experience. Truly worthwhile.

Quirky Vintage Hotel

Stayed for one night while visiting the Oregon coast. Quiet location overlooking the lovely estuary with views of the hills behind. Small boutique hotel with a very comfortable clean room and ensuite with vintage style furnishings in keeping with the style of the original hotel. Friendly owners. Relaxing stay.

All good even with the permanent guests

Sadly we didn't experience any of the permanent guests known to frequent this lovely historic building. Maybe we will be back soon to experience all there is to enjoy at this great hotel and maybe we will have better luck meeting some of the local in residence.

The views of the Nehalem river and natural area are amazing. The room was nice, the bed very comfortable, and the Jacuzzi tub was so relaxing! Very quaint and unique lodging above antique store, quilt shop, coffee shop, and retail shop with one-of-a-kind jewelry and art. We will definitely visit again!

Great Experience

This hotel is wonderfully maintained and the staff was incredible. If we are ever in Wheeler again, we will be staying here.

Preserves old world charm.

Stayed her many times. Will return. Most mainstream motels - not bed & breakfast, have a better breakfast. Should get a waffle iron, sausage gravy, and other mainstream "motel" items.

Wonderful weekend stay

Very happy to discover this Oregon coast gem of a hotel. Everything was great with an old fashioned homey feel, super clean and friendly service with a great restaurant around the corner and coffee shop on the lower floor. Only surprise was no room service for linen and towels without requesting it but easy to work around this. Great place and I highly recommend
