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

We 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.

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.

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!

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

The Old Wheeler Hotel is full of charm. The rooms are very well appointed, and maintain the feel of the turn of the century. Rob showed us great hospitality and was helpful in obtaining anything we needed. The cleanliness of the whole place was exceptional--something I really appreciate. Room 4 has a great view of the estuary and the elk. We did not partake of the continental breakfast, so I cannot comment on that. However, I would greatly have appreciated it if they had a Keurig. We are early risers and could not get coffee--for miles around--until after 7am. A self brew system would really up the hospitality quotient. Still, I would not stay anywhere else when in the vicinity.

The Old Wheeler Hotel is one of our favorite places when we want to escape from the city. It is loaded with charm, intrigue and friendliness. The rooms are immaculate, comfortavble and delightfully decorated. The sitting/breakfast room is a cozy and relaxing area (fireplace, comfortable seating, games, puzzles) with one of the most beautiful views on the northern Oregon coast.
