We stayed there a night in March and couldn't have been happier with the room and accommodations! The beds were so nice we are looking into buying a similar model. The balcony views are spectacular and you are within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants on Riverside Ave. The room was clean, relatively new/modern, smelled pleasant and... More

Very pleasant hotel (motel) in downtown Winthrop. Staff are friendly and helpful. We visited after Christmas to do some skiing and experience Winthrop in the winter. The rooms are not anything special, but are clean and comfortable. Nice hot tub. The river view is great.

Great place to stay, within walking distance of downtown and right across the street from the Schaefer museum. Affordable, clean and well kept. Right on a river with river access and all rooms open to the river via balcony. As far as food goes, Winthrop is not in the running for awesome or great food. There are places to eat... More

We were looking for a nice hotel within walking distance to restaurants and bars in Wild West Winthrop, Washington. We can't walk far due to knee problems, and we didn't want to drink and drive, so the main issue was vicinity to downtown shops and dining and drinking. We were led to believe that the Hotel Rio Vista is right... More

This is a strange review. We made reservations to stay here on a Saturday night at 6:00 the night before. We were told they had a 48 hr cancellation policy and we were ok with that. The news said the freezing level over highway 20 was going to be11,000 feet. So we decided to ride our motorcycles over for one... More

A most unique hotel with every room having a great view of the confluence of The Methow & Chewuch Rivers just outside your room. Rooms are clean and well apportioned. So here we are on the deck at 5 PM enjoying a great sunset. The hotel is just a few steps from down town Winthrop which has some great eateries.... More

Bed was a little soft. It and the comforter could use a replacement. I liked the sink and vasnity being in the sleeping area,... More

We were once again provided a room by Kiwanis, the Kiwanis Club of Winthrop, at the Rio Vista, thank you Kiwanis of Winthrop.
