I just wanted to thank the Hotel Rio Vista for staying open during the fires. It was a game changer having a place to stay while we were in the valley. All the other hotels in the area closed down at the evacuation. Most people forget about the emergency personnel in those circumstances but the Hotel Rio Vista stayed open... More

Like the steam behind the hotel, nice view from the window, on the main street, near restaurants and shops, room is clean with suitable site for family, would be perfect if the air-con could have less noise.

This hotel was a real change from the usual chain hotels. Situated on the bank of the Methow River the balcony at the back overlooked this river. The back balcony looked over the river and you could watch the deer feeding in the mornings. The room was clean and modern with a nice comfortable bed. One nice touch was that... More

This place is awesome. The rooms are spacious and clean, and they all face the river with private decks. It's within walking distance of all of the shops and restaurants in Winthrop, which is an amazing town that was built to look like an old Western town. There is a hot tub on the second floor overlooking the river, which... More

Great hotel with a beautiful backyard. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. They all have balconies with an incredible view of the rivers. The staff is very friendly. This hotel is located as close to town as you can get. You can walk to shops and restaurants very easily.

This place just had everything going for it. The setting was awesome with all the balconies overlooking a beautiful river. The hotel is located right next to the old west town of Winthrop, very cool. The room could not have been cleaner or more comfortable. The owners are a nice young couple who were very friendly and helpful.

Walking distance to the charming town of Winthrop. Nice that all rooms have riverfront balconies. Too bad the yellow jackets are taking over the town--its impossible to have a glass of wine or food outside without being swarmed this summer

This is a great place to stay for a night or an out of town retreat. The rooms are very clean, spacious, quiet and laid out nicely. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. My husband and me have stayed here on quite a few different times and I'd recommend the Rio Vista to anyone looking for a place to... More

This is a great place to stay and we will definitely be back. The room was clean, functional and with just enough personality. Having the private deck overlooking the river was wonderful, and we also took advantage of the grassy area down the stairs right on the river. We both had a great sleep in a good bed after several...

Spacious, clean rooms, each with a private balcony overlooking the river. Within walking distance to many restaurants and cute little shops of Winthrop. Next to a great bakery for breakfast. Small grass area with relaxing chairs by the river and the hot tub on the deck were nice amenities.
