They offer wifi that does not even work. T mobile would not work at all around there and the girl at the desk was very rude beautiful scenery but not worth the money or the poor quality service provided! They offered us 5$ off a night to have no housekeeping really it does not take but 5 minutes to do... More

I called them a few days before needing a hotel room, they were friendly and very helpful. I unfortunately had to cancel last minute and they were very understanding and accomadating to my situation. I have stayed here once before with no issues :)

We just returned from a weekend at the Paddle Wheel Inn in Oregon, Il. What a wonderful, relaxing place to sneak off too! The staff was very friendly and accommodating to every one of our needs. Our room overlooked the river and also the deck and steamboat. The rooms are clean with plenty of towels and the view from our... More

The room appeared clean, but that is the only good thing we can say for the Paddle Wheel Inn. Your choices are limited in Oregon, IL and the Paddle Wheel takes advantage of that fact. Very over priced for two queen, hard mattresses with hard pillows. What $84 hotel doesn't offer shampoo??? They close the front desk at 9 pm,... More

I just returned from a week at the Paddle Wheel Inn in Oregon, IL. This is the second time that I stayed here - the last time being 6 years ago. That visit was great and this was just as good (even though the ownership has changed hands). This time we had a river view room (which I highly recommend).... More

We stayed just for 1 night. Wish we could of stayed longer. The location is beautiful. Right on the Rock River. The entire hotel was refurbished recently. Very nice. Beds were comfy. Would definitely stay here again.

Read the reviews about bad WiFi so I emailed and called weeks in advance asking to be put in a room closer to front desk where it is supposedly better. They ignored my request and put us in a far away room which had zero WiFi. Closer rooms had zero also. The cell service is bad also. We checked out... More

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.

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!!
