we had a room on the first floor overlooking the river, and the small herd of deer that spent the evening and the next morning that kept us in awe and entertained. a nice room, comfortable bed, good amenities, and easy walking distance to food and drink. we love it there!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights on our summer road trip. We used it as a base to explore North Cascades National Park and Ross Lake, which are 40 minutes to an hour away depending on where you want to go. The hotel room was comfortable with a nice, large king bed. Everything was very... More

Very pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Rio Vista. Right downtown so we walked, shopped and ate without getting in our car until we left the next day. Winthrop is great place to visit, lots of history and great shops and places to eat. The hotel overlooked the river and each room has a private balcony. Very clean and... More

Great spot on the river at the south end of the main "period facade" shops on Riverside Avenue (Highway 20). Nicely appointed room with a fine view of the river and an outdoor patio with each room. All rooms have the same arrangement. Free wi-fi, in room coffee maker, microwave and fridge. Large flat screen TV, good shower. Restaurants are... More

Small rustic room with a deck right over the river. Watched wildlife and listened to the river going to sleep. Right on the edge of town and a short walk to everything. Staff was great. I highly recommend this hotel. The outdoor museum across the street a has lots of cool old farming/mining equipment on display

We stayed for one night at Hotel Rio Vista and really loved our stay there! We had a hotel room on the second floor and overlooked the river below. Listening to the sound of the river was wonderful, especially at night with our window (with screen!) open. The room and the bed was very comfortable and clean and attractive (not... More

The location is great for this motel. room was not fancy but clean and comfy . We were right on the river and the view from the deck was wonderful. we watched golden eagles fish while we had coffee on our deck. The only draw back was no dogs so our dog stayed at a campground with friends. The no... More

We came to town for a wedding and could only stay one night. Check-in was quick and friendly, the room was clean and fresh. There was a small fridge to chill our travel snacks. We didn't use the microwave, & TV but might next time. We slept well. Sliding door led to a private balcony where I enjoyed my morning... More

We hadn't stayed at this place for several years, and we were pleased to find that it has new management since we stayed there last. The reservation process is improved, bedding is refreshed, free wifi is available, and excellent flat-screen TV has a good selection of channels. These improvements, the unbeatable location, and the wonderful view makes Rio Visa our... More

We were two friends and a couple that stayed in Rio Vista for one night in May 2015. From the onset I didn't look that much forward to the stay because it was only a 2 or 3 star hotel, and I was worried whether the bed would be any good. Well, my worries were unfounded. Rio Vista is a... More
