The Duck Brand Hotel and Cantina is our new go to place to stay in Winthrop. The owner, Alberto, was charming and accomodating. We got there late, after closing actually, Friday evening and Alberto and his staff were happy to stay open and let us order food and drinks after our long drive. We have experienced the negative late arrival... More

A bit of a fading gem but likely the best in town. Rooms are quaint but need investment. This is a great little town for over-night stays. Cantina has excellent Mexican cuisine. Pl;ease bring this back to previous glory.

Conveniently located on the Main street with plenty of parking space in the back. Room was clean, comfortable and with its own deck. Downside was the room size, which was somewhat small. But hey, what do you need for one nights’ stay – just your toothbrush and some fresh underwear. The car is right there if you need anything else!... More

No palace but in this charming village- the whole place is a bit like a disney set it offer comfortable and clean rooms with good hot showers. And the breakfast was sensational too. Good place for one night passing through.

First let me say the couple that run this hotel and the attached Cantina were friendly and helpful even though they were overworked. The room was clean, but that was as good as it got. We arrived during a heat wave looking forward to a nice cool room. The room air conditioner ran non-stop, but was useless. There were no... More

Horrible place to stay or eat. Just stayed and ate here: horrible food, lousy rooms. Extremely rude owners. Management is rude and disrespectful to guests and staff. While having breakfast, I asked our server if there was a computer/printer to print out directions. Told that there wasn't one, but that if i told them where I was going they would... More

Our family stayed at the Duck Brand Hotel again this year for the annual 49ers days in Winthrop. The Duck Brand hotel,located above and behind the restaurant is the best value in this quaint town. The rooms are clean and stay with the basic country feel of this community. They have a wonderful balcony to have a cold beverage, or... More

I ordered a veggie Enchilada and Chile Relleno! It was outstanding! Hubby ordered his standard BLT served with steak fries and he said it was great. Service was awesome, and manager visited our table! We will go back!!!

thanks so much for the kudos, julie. we really appreciate when the guests are happy. indeed, the chili rellenos are the best anywhere in the entire methow valley, and the fries are homemade--no prepackaged frozen stuff here! the duck brand has been through its first year of business under new ownership and many kinks and bumps have been smoothed out...

Sunny day on a beautiful tree-shaded deck overlooking town...priceless! Carne Asade Tacos were fabulous, although sorry to say the Winthrop red wine..not so much. Friend had a burger that was 'just okay'...serves him right for ordering American in a Mexican restaurant!

We did not stay at the hotel, we only ate at their restaurant, twice for dinner in our three days in Winthrop. We had Mexican food both times which was great. The waiters / waitresses we had were courteous and helpful. Would eat here again.

hi ed w, thanks so much for your kind words. the menu itself needs revising as the descriptions (and the many errors) do not do justice to the food nor the high quality of the meals. though the duck has many mexican items on the menu, there's something tasty and fresh for everyone, including seafood, pastas, vegetarian (and many items...
