Hotel Rio Vista is a 3 level hotel wihtout an elevator but if you can't manage stairs you can request a room on the ground floor. It's perfectly located on the confluence of 2 rivers and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants. Every room has a balcony which overlooks the rivers so the setting is lovely. The room... More

Every room has a balcony with beautiful views, it's a great place to stay. Warm hospitality, clean rooms and a hot tub to soak in after enjoying downtown Winthrop. We brought our child with us and they were very accommodating. Winthrop is a wonderful town and the hotel is within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

We stayed here last weekend and loved Hotel Rio Vista. All rooms have balconies overlooking the river. One morning saw an eagle hunting along the river. Nice large room and bathroom. Especially liked sitting in the outdoor hot tub on a cold winter night. So relaxing. Loved that the hotel was right in town, so we could walk to all... More

The Hotel Rio Vista was a great place for us. We enjoyed hearing the river ripple by off the back patio. The accommodations--bed and bath--were very good. The mattress was divine. Everything was clean and immaculate. The staff were efficient and friendly. We will happily stay at the Hotel Rio Vista again!

This lovely hotel was the perfect get-away spot and my husband and I are both anxious to get back to Winthrop and stay there again! Our room was very nicely furnished, clean and extremely comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and their customer service was outstanding. We slept with our window open to fall asleep to the calming... More

Hotel Rio has a nice location but the approach and entrance is that of a roadside motel. The dark carpet was hiding quite a bit of 'usage'. Ok for a last minute accommodation but not for a holiday experience. The sheets were either house cleaned or from previous use as they were all crumpled and not laundered to hotel perfection.

There is obviously pride of ownership in this charming downtown motel. Rooms are convenient and immaculate with many thoughtful details for guest comfort. The decor fits perfectly with the western-themed town. Beds and linens are wonderfully comfortable. The deer playing on the riverbank are in view from the back veranda and are delightful to watch. You can hear the pleasant... More

Just on the edge of town, close proximity to shops and restaurants, sits the Rio Vista. Nothing really outstanding on the outside but the river from the balcony off our room made it very nice. We had a room on the second floor. There is no elevator so you do need to carry your luggage up several flights of stairs.... More

We wanted to spend one night in Winthrop even though neither of us had been there before. Rio Vista was great! Winthrop is small so wherever you stay, you don't have far to walk to anything. We especially enjoyed the balcony deck that looked out over the convergence of the rivers. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not a "fancy" place... More
