Great little place

4.2 on May 11, 2017

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.

A Favorite Getaway

4.8 on February 23, 2017

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.

Holiday Tradition

The holiday season for me always includes a stay at the Old Wheeler Hotel. It is well over 10 years since I first stayed at the Old Wheeler. I was reading The Chronicles of Narnia by Lewis at the time, and as I checked in to the hotel with all it's wardrobe closets, I felt I was in Lewis's story myself. The hotel is charming and even magical.

A Step Back In Time.

Beautiful rooms, great ambience and a lovely view of Nehalem Bay. On top of all that wonderfulness, Kate's warmth and welcoming way was frosting on the cake. We look forward to our next trip.

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

4.4 on October 04, 2016

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

4.6 on September 24, 2016

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!

Home Away From Home

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!
