We did not stay for long visit, simply came in and attended out friends wedding beautiful Methow Valley. I liked this hotel as it was affordable and smack in town walking distance to places to visit easily.

A very comfortable hotel. Run by a great couple and everyone who worked there was incredibly nice and helpful. We stayed on the lower level which is great because there is absolutely no noise from the road and the view of the river is fantastic. It is the closest hotel for walking to the cross-country trailhead over by the ice... More

We left the balcony doors open all night so that we could hear the river rapids just below our room. We had 4 inches of new snow and the view from our room was like an Christmas Card. Would definitely re-book

We stayed two nights while looking around the town and hiking. This property is beautifully maintained with spectacular views of the river, including private patios for sitting and viewing. While in the midst of shopping and restaurants it was extremely quiet.

Nice, clean hotel-like room. Wonderful view of the rivers and the beautiful terrain with a small but private deck to enjoy the view. Loved hearing the rivers and not the road noise. Only complaint I have is that the bed and pillows could be more comfortable - too hard. Enjoyed the hot tub after a long hard hike. Great coffee... More

We were pleasantly surprised . The Hotel Rio Vista was a great place to stay. The room was nothing fancy, but very clean, comfortable and completely adequate for our stay. We enjoyed sipping a glass of wine from the balcony and soaking in the beautiful scenery. We left our door open and the sound of the river was so relaxing.... More

What a pleasant surprise. If you must visit Winthrop (and there are many reasons why you may not want to) this place is great. It's called an hotel but it's really a motel as they don't do breakfast or have a lobby. The room blew me away with its quality and views. The new owners can feel proud of what... More

Stopped in Winthrope on our way to Peachland and found Rio Vista. Clean, comfortable king room with a small balcony overlooking the local river. Price was reasonable and our host Paul was very welcoming. With better room amenities I would have liked things even more but what the heck, a bar of soap is a bar of soap. Enjoying a... More

Winthrop was a stop over while riding the Cascades loop. Our room was clean and well appointed. It had a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. But the best part was it had a small deck overlooking the river, beautiful! I've included a picture of the view from our deck.

We stayed at the Hotel Rio Vista on Labor Day evening and received a great special rate for off season. We have stayed at the hotel numerous times in the past, but stopped a few years back as it just wasn't up to par. This time, however, we were pleasantly surprised to find the room as wonderful as it was... More
