After a long, arduous drive across very rugged mountain roads, we spied this quaint little town, revamped to look like an "old" town, with board walks and very interesting buildings and shops. The hotel itself was extremely beautiful, the room was quite spacious, tastefully decorated, quiet and comfortable. The balcony was much appreciated as it gave us a breathless morning... More

Charming smaller hotel owned and run by the owners and it's located just steps from town. Check in was quick and all the question we had about the area were answered in a friendly manner by owner Paul .The hotel sit very close to the road and we were concerned about the noise from the traffic,but it's very quiet and...

We were traveling cross country and were in our 11th day when we arrived in Winthrop. What we needed was a comfortable bed to refresh us for the next day. The Hotel Rio vista did more than that with comfortable beds and a short walk to the quaint downtown area with its old west motif. We enjoy the evening there... More

We spent two nights there and were pleased with our stay there. The front staff were very helpful. The room was clean and met all of our needs. We were on a motorcycle and we appreciated the extra touches that they provided.

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
