My husband fell in the slippery shower - combination of too much water softener and slippery sloped sides to the tub. 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...

Just like all the positive reviews I read about this Inn, I was very satisfied with all aspects of my experience. Great scenic location and the best service I have experienced staying in small towns. I recommend this accommodations to friends and strangers alike.

Small independent hotel. Desk closes for the overnight. Great value for the money. Family suite was great. Jet tub in the bathroom. Riverview. Limited TV channels, but if you're on vacation, who needs TV channels? Staff super friendly and easy to get to and from the many restaurants in the town.

This is an older hotel which has been nicely updated. It was very clean and fresh feeling. Located along the Rock River, it was very quiet. There was a strong thunder storm which we were barely able to hear. The room was of adequate size. Not huge, but not tight either. It was equipped with a mini fridge and microwave....

I was very disappointed in amenities available. View was beautiful and room was clean. I fell in bathtub during my stay and was very unhappy with attitude and customer service from staff but especially from the owner!! No mats are provided!! And no responsibility was taken!

Room was spacious and clean. Riverview room had balcony and nice view of Rock River. Room had microwave and refrigerator, but no coffee pot. Bathroom fan was noisy. Great area with many scenic parks. Hotel is quiet too.

What a great small town! The Paddle wheel was very well kept and clean! I was just there one overnight in a single room but was happy with it. Just be aware of the room sizes. The only small negatives were they only have 3-4 tv channels, and felt like I could hear everyone in the rooms around me, so...

Had a wonderful stay at the Paddlewheel Inn. Joseyln went way beyond the call of duty. The room was large, clean, loved the two separate sinks, the balcony, and much better than we expected!! The only negative thing was - there was a tree blocking our view of Blackhawk. I'd give this a 10 if I could. If we ever...

We had a junior suite overlooking the river. Room was very clean and spacious. The view from the balcony was beautiful. Indoors there were two easy chairs to sink into as we relaxed before bed. The next morning we slipped out onto the balcony to watch the sun rise over the ridge and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Lovely stay....

The staff here are very polite and very accommodating! Diane (front desk) was very helpful in making sure my needs were met. I'll be back and forth to Oregon a few more times this season and plan on staying at the Paddle Wheel Inn when I do.
