Our group of 7 had two rooms on the second floor, each with two beds. Rooms were clean, and the beds comfortable. Each room has a balcony and the view of the river below is pretty nice. Also a small lawn area behind the hotel along the river where one can sit and relax. Enjoyed the hot tub as well... More

Clean, spacious room, in tune with the western theme but not overly rustic. Lovely south-facing lawn with comfy chairs for "watchin' the river flow." Central shared hot tub. Not cheap, no breakfast included.

We stayed her with or kids one night driving through Winthrop. A little out dated but quaint and clean. We sat on our balcony and drank wine and enjoyed the views of the river and wildlife in the late evening. Close to the Rocking Horse bakery for breakfast in the morning, no need to drive anywhere to see all the... More

My husband and I stayed in an accessible room for 2 nights. The room was fairly large, had a king size bed and table and chairs. All the rooms have a balcony overlooking the confluence of two rivers. We were able to observe Eagles, various ducks, deer, etc. I suspect the balcony would be hot in the summer. The hotel... More

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
