This is a Motel not a Hotel. Just so as folks know. There are no restaurant facilities here. It was basic but clean. For the price paid I think little bottle of Hair conditioner could have been included with the tiny bottles of shampoo and tiny bars of soaps.! The sound of the river behind the Motel was nice!

Loved the view of the river and enjoyed the setting sun on our deck. No highway noise as all windows look over the river for complete privacy. Clean and comfy room within walking distance to the whole town. Staying over the "49'r" celebration was fun and festive. My Mom, Sister and I had a great time...staying at the Rio Vista... More

Clean and cool this room was a relative bargain in the tourist mecca that is Winthrop. Very close to town with ample parking. The linens were amongst the best I have ever had in a motel / hotel. Desk was very efficient and cordial. Room was spotless. Bed was as good or better than my bed at home. Ground floor... More

Nice, clean, comfortable place to stay. It is worth a stop even though it doesn't look like it from the front. The rooms we very clean and the beds were comfy!! The attached balcony made relaxing and watching the wild life a great experience, and seeing the bald eagle and mule deer was a bonus. Highly recommended.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The room looked to be recently remodeled and was very clean. Not fancy but very nice - it felt like management really cares. We were on the second floor overlooking the river and really enjoyed the view from the small deck. The hot tub area was mostly in-closed and very pleasant. We'd stay here again... More

Hotel Rio Vista is a 3 level hotel wihtout an elevator but if you can't manage stairs you can request a room on the ground floor. It's perfectly located on the confluence of 2 rivers and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants. Every room has a balcony which overlooks the rivers so the setting is lovely. The room... More

Every room has a balcony with beautiful views, it's a great place to stay. Warm hospitality, clean rooms and a hot tub to soak in after enjoying downtown Winthrop. We brought our child with us and they were very accommodating. Winthrop is a wonderful town and the hotel is within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

We stayed here last weekend and loved Hotel Rio Vista. All rooms have balconies overlooking the river. One morning saw an eagle hunting along the river. Nice large room and bathroom. Especially liked sitting in the outdoor hot tub on a cold winter night. So relaxing. Loved that the hotel was right in town, so we could walk to all... More
