Was looking for a good place to stay at in the Oregon area, as we'll be hunting there. Paddle Wheel Inn was recommended. Alex was very helpful over the phone. Looking forward to staying there for our hunting trip!

I reserved my room for the Thanksgiving holiday period over the phone and was helped by Tara, the receptionist. Tara was extremely helpful and polite and was happy to be able to secure our stay during this busy time of year. If all phone experiences were like this one, I wouldn't use the internet to book rooms! I'm looking forward...

The people who work at Paddle Wheel Inn are so accommodating and friendly, especially Alex who helped us with our room reservations. I really love the setting and location of this place, right on the river! Beautiful! It had a great vibe. I like the cabin look on the inside. It was just the nature-infused get-away that I needed!

The Paddlewheel Inn is a lovely hotel on the scenic Rock River. Tonya, at the desk, was especially helpful. The room was very large with two easy chairs, a fringe & a microwave. There is a great view from the balcony overlooking the river. There is also an excellent steakhouse across the parking lot. Coming in late October gave us...

We booked this room for our 11th Anniversary. From check-in to leaving, stay was literally perfect.We travel with our Mitsubishi electric car, and the host, Brittany, went out of her way to arrange for us to plug in at a plug between the Inn and Maxson's restaurant Just outside the entrance.

All of the staff that handled my cancellation over the phone were more than willing to help and accommodate. It is easy to tell that they are customer oriented, and I am looking forward to the next time I am able to stay here and not have to cancel at the last minute!

When we finally spoke to the manager on Monday (he fell Saturday and no one called us from this establishment) the manager immediately started giving my husband a difficult time. She started spouting off legal stuff and did not...
