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

We were looking for a new getaway, having always previously gone to the WA coast or Suncadia. We took a chance and booked at the Hotel Rio Vista. The staff was the friendliest we have ever experienced. The rooms are nothing exceptional, but they are very clean and roomy, and the property as a whole is very well maintained. The... More

Winthrop is a lovely western town at the east-end of the North Cascades N.P. We spent one night in this hotel - which was kind of a spontaneous decision. They had that one room left, which we decided to take. Prices were reasonable. Staff was very friendly. Rooms are very nice though nothing exceptional. They contain two queen-sized beds, a... More

This was not our first choice when we started planning our weekend to Winthrop, but we're so glad we ended up here. Very cozy, clean and comfortable place right on the river. It was wonderful to be able to walk to our meals in Winthrop. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and offered advice on several options for day... More

We started out doing the Cascade Loop and Chamber of Commerce sent a brochure and this hotel was mentioned. So glad we picked this hotel. Spacious room with a beautiful view of the river from the balcony. Great location, walked into western town. Gift shops, general store and restaurants....had beautiful weather. Ate dinner at Jack's Saloon just a short walk... More

What a find! Rio Vista is a delightful hotel located on the shores of the Chewuch River. All of the rooms have a balcony so everyone can enjoy the view. The rooms were comfortable and the decor fit with the western feel of the town. The weather was still warm thought it was October so we were able to leave... More

The Rio Vista rooms face the confluence of two rivers, so the balconies are very enjoyable. You can walk the little town, which is touristy in a nice way. We found the room spacious and comfortable, but don't expect posh. Internet connection was fine. Our room had a microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator, which were handy. There's a some noise...
