Charming Victorian Character
We recently stayed here for a business trip on the coast. The place is charming with lots of antiques. Our room overlooked the bay, and was lovely to see when we woke up in the morning. The hostess, Katie was friendly and give us some history of the building. We did not have an en suite bathroom, but our own private bathroom just down the hall, which was not a problem. The common room was lovely, however do not expect much in the way of breakfast.
Shockingly bad treatment by the owner
I was treated with amazing inhospitality and rudeness during my one unfortunate night here. At 9:30pm I rang the owner lady to ask if I might possibly change rooms. My neighbors happened to be ill - nobody's fault - but through very thin walls, I was still jolted by every cough even with earplugs. Well, I've never seen somebody act so put out in my life. When the lady showed up she stormed around, threw her arms in the air, did nothing to hide her supreme annoyance. She did show me another room, making very clear how much more it cost per night. Already wanting to melt into the floor, I declined. When she then decided to offer it to me at no extra charge, I felt so unwelcome that I couldn't possibly embrace any "favors" from this woman. It would have been much kinder of her to just calmly tell me "no" when I called. Instead I was treated to this spectacularly unprofessional display. The hotel is beautiful, with some warm and welcoming spaces, and my bedroom and bathroom were cozy and gorgeous. If I'd had a better time of it, I might not have been as unimpressed by the light pouring into my room all night from the pretty stained-glass window over the door. I still would have been as unimpressed by breakfast - Costco individually wrapped bagels, instant oatmeal, cheap granola bars, boiled eggs. Not necessarily a great choice for a romantic weekend either, with those thin walls. Won't be going back!
Old Wheeler historic Hotel
This is a unique historic hotel nicely decorated in antique furniture. When we arrived we were helped with our luggage and given a short tour and history of the hotel by Michael, then shown to room 5 which had an old furniture smell. The bathroom had a putrid septic odor. We could not get the heater to work. Michael was helpful and got it to work eventually but the only remedy for the bathroom smell was to open the window and turn on the fan. Eventually it went away. There were 2 bath towels, 2 wash cloths but only 1 face towel and ants crawling in the sink. No other room available that night but were told to see Katie in the morning. Breakfast was very skimpy, no coffee till 7:30 am. Katy finally explained that one of the guest had taken a dump in our bathroom after they had checked out and our room had been cleaned. We could not imagine how that could possibly happen! They moved us into room 8 which was much nicer and clean. No bad odors. This hotel does not change sheets each day, no maid service. You place dirty towels outside your door and clean ones are left in a basket. The gift shop was closed the whole 3 days we were there. Lots of books on Zen and Budda. But no bible. We cannot recommend this hotel.
Sleepy town favorite
We come back here time and time again because we love the peaceful, old world charm. Even in the height of summer we manage to always find a parking and have a quiet getaway from the crowds of Rockaway or Seaside. The elevator on the first floor is very convenient for bringing up luggage, the wide stairs are easy to take when you're not hauling heavy stuff. Being on the second floor offers the wonderful view of the bay and gentle town below. We stayed in room two, which is nice because of the cozy sitting area with two upholstered chairs and little footstool, table in between for hot cup of coffee from the coffee shop below, or a hot cup of homemade soup. Windows looking out on the bay, big comfy bed and nice size bathroom. It's tucked away out of the main path and away from the dining room so it's nice and quiet. We did hear the door of the next room opening and closing, and our door wasn't as quiet as we'd like, but in spite of that and the place was very quiet even though at least half full. There is such a charming, sweet atmosphere to this place that keeps us coming back every year. The main room with sofa's, piano and computer is comfortable and welcoming place to curl up with a book. We have enjoyed the breakfast room at all times of day, watching for the elk with the binocs, playing cards or just reading on the sofa's late at night when I couldn't sleep and didn't want to disturb my spouse. Below the hotel there is an art gallery with such special items there hasn't ever been a time we leave without finding a treasure to take home.
Charming Hotel with Great Views
We stayed two nights recently and loved it. We had Room 1 with a fabulous view of the bay. Our room was big with a comfortable couch and both a clawfoot tub and separate shower. When we arrived our room door had a welcome sign with our names, very sweet touch. All the rooms are on the second floor but there is a small elevator if needed. The rooms and hallways are decorated with an assortment of antiques and interesting knick knacks. Staff is friendly and helpful. A large room next to ours had breakfast service, reading chairs and great views. Breakfast was plentiful but baked goods were store bought and coffee was weak - didn't seem to fit the place. We would definitely go back again and highly recommend it.
