We had another fantastic stay. I just cant get enough of the rustic charm of this hotel. This hotel is not trendy or has all of the modern amenities but it has charm and sometimes something a little different is what ever one needs. Its very unique and I always feel at peace when I stay. The staff was amazing... More

Is it possible to get anyone at the front desk to check in!!!! What the hell!!! Just drove 15 hour and was planning to stay here and the desk is completely closed. Called the number and could hear it ringing behind the wall! What a waste of time!!

Property is clean and neat; very condusive to visiting on the exterior decks and the gazebo. There is also an interior gathering room with coffee served 24hrs. The rooms and baths are spacious, clean and nicely... More

The Paddlewheel is a beautiful place in a unique location on the Rock River. The staff are helpful and understanding, and the Maxon's restaurant next door is also great. The inn has a spectacular view of the river, forest, and Blackhawk statue, and it is a great way to get away for the weekend and enjoy the town of Oregon.

We came to the area to kayak and stayed at the paddlewheel. Glad we did! Great price, clean, friendly. Restaurant next door, Maxson's is wonderful, great food and what a view of the river and the Blackhawk statue. We will come back.
