Just read in the paper today that this place was foreclosed on. So it has been closed since October, 2013. Really nice place with a good scene of the Rock River and Chief Blackhawk, a real shame. My relatives always stayed here when visiting, many people liked it although it was a little expensive. Last time my sister went there... More

Have stayed several times on weekends usually for group events at Maxsons next door. Peaceful, beautiful setting with view of Blackhawk statue overlooking Rock River. Love watching the paddlewheel going up and down the river. Beautiful restaurant practically adjacent to hotel with fabulous Sunday brunch, as well as a steakhouse in same parking lot. Standard cereal, fruit, pastry continental breakfast.... More

Building had a little age but was well kept. Nice view overlooking the Rock River, deck and paddlewheel boat. Breakfast room was always well stocked very early in the morning. Good quiet location. No iron or board in the room and the front desk only had a mini-size (table top) ironing board to lend. GREAT steak and atmosphere at the... More

Stayed here one night as we were in town for a wedding reception. Check in was a piece of cake. Got to the room which was on the river side, (highly recommend requesting one) and upon first look was impressed. Appeared clean and had the "hotel" smell to it. My 12 yr old daughter was laying on the bed and... More

I had my wedding over at Maxson Manor & that was amazing. I booked rooms for myself and my bridal party at The Paddle Wheel Inn & that was AWFUL. They were not accommodating at all. We asked for an early check-in to get ready for the wedding and we couldn't do that. So essentially they made me book the... More

We had a reservation to stay there in September. When we got there, we thought the place looked "iffy" , but it had a great location right on the river. So, we decided to have a look inside. Well, the place was closed because no one stayed there the night before !! I called the number listed on the note... More

Nice accommodations, good location. Parking can be tough if you get in late, as there's an event space next door that must share the lot with Paddle Wheel Inn. The staff was very friendly and gave great service. My big issue was that after I checked out and got my credit card statement, I learned that I was charged for... More

Me and my husband stayed here for a fathers day get away. We got one of the rooms on ground level along the river. Being able to walk out onto your private patio right there along the river is very relaxing. We ordered room service from the hotel across the parking lot and they delivered it right to our room!...

I drive two hours to get here. Staff was rude and demanded cash up front before I was allowed to enter my room. Worst breakfast offered. Will never stay here again. I ended up leaving and going to a different inn.

I am sorry to see you left these comment. I am sorry your were unsatisfied with the free continental breakfast we offer each morning. You made the comment we demanded cash which is a false statement. Upon check in you asked if we accepted personal checks, the desk clerk informed you that we do not accept checks. You then ask... More
