Winthrop is a smaller western style town and the Hotel Rio Vista fits in Perfectly. Every room has a balcony and faces the river. So relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the peaceful river flow by. I am so used to a King size bed that a Queen feels small now, but they are very comfortable and the... More

Does not look like much from the road, but this is a real gem. It is in town, an easy walk to restaurants and shops. The rooms are facing the river with private decks, away from the lights and noise. You can look out the window and see millions of sparkling stars. Magical, without having to carry and sleep in... More

We stayed here 2 nights last week. We had a special request and I had emailed with the owner, Paul, and he had kindly agreed to accommodate us. The rooms are very nice and the bed is the most comfy bed I ever remember sleeping in. We had a balcony and there are chairs to lounge in by the river.... More

From LA, I booked our stay at the Rio Vista Hotel based on reviews. The great customer service began 1 minute later, when I got a call from Trudy at the front desk, to correct a goof I made in the online reservation. I was impressed, and she was sweet about it. Our one-night stay there was great, and then... More

From the street side this property does not look like much but once you get into your room you will be very satisfied. The decor fits in with the Winthrop experience, everything was spotless and almost makes you think the furnishings were specifically built for the room. Sitting out on the balcony with the scenic river view, sipping a nice... More

After a long day on the road we just needed a place to crash for the night. As we drove through this town I decided we were stopping then and there (at what appeared to be the last hotel in the town). It was getting dark and I had no clue where we were really or about the hotel except... More

Loved the effective use of space and rustic ambience. Large tv. Small balcony overlooking the river perfect for two to sit and enjoy morning coffee. Balcony directly over hot tub was not an... More

It looks like any other motel. Right in town near lots of places to eat. The room was great, overlooking the confluence of two rivers. Large and airy with phone/TV/wifi. Also microwave and fridge in kitchenette area. Very quiet and good aircon. Comfortable bed with good linen. Also large sofa. Fantastic balcony overlooking the rivers where you could spot wildlife...

This hotel is worth every penny! In town, close to everything yet blissfully relaxing. Every room has a fantastic view of the confluence of the Chewuch and Methow rivers. Wildlife viewing right from your balcony! We will absolutely be back.
