Everything about this hotel was EASY - easy parking, easy check-in, well-appointed room, easy walking to all the stores and restaurants in Winthrop. The location is fantastic - on the main street on the front side and the river along the back, with a nice patio to enjoy the view from. My adult daughter and I only had one night... More

Everything has been great. Young man behind the counter was very helpful, room is big with view of river. Patio is big enough to sit comfortably to watch the river flow and wildlife go by. They have seating along the river to get even closer. Hotel is on the Main Street in town so a lot of traffic passing by.

Great location, walking distance to everything , the river view is beautiful out the back . Slept with the sliding door open . No noise at all . Super clean and the king size bed was comfy. A bit weird the sink right beside the bed and not in the bathroom .

We were traveling from Spokane to Seattle, and decided to try Winthrop as a stop off point. Finding Hotel Rio Vista was the perfect fit. All the rooms open to the back, which means (weather permitting) you get the gentle sounds of a bubbling river to soothe your soul all night long. A fun hot tub for day time use.... More

We only stayed one night but this hotel is a terrific find. From the outside, it doesn't look like much and even in the hallways you are still wondering. But the rooms are very nice, updated and modern, and all have a river view with a private balcony and ability to get lots of fresh air and the sounds of... More

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel. This time it was for the rhythm and Blues festival. This hotel is right on the river. It is very clean, quiet and the people are very welcoming. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants and the festival was only 1/3 mile away. The rooms are a little... More

This was an outstanding 2-night stay on the river. Hotel had a rustic look, and initially was concerned. Room was clean, spacious, and had a small fridge. Service was quick, very friendly, and efficient. Restful seating area by river, cant wait to go back!!

This hotel is perfect after a day in the mountains--clean, super-comfortable beds, walking distance to everything in Winthrop and best of all, a private balcony overlooking the river. The sliding door had a screen so we could leave it open to enjoy the cool air and the sound of the river rolling by all night. Staff were friendly, cheerful and... More

We had a wonderful night's stay at Hotel Rio Vista in Winthrop. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable bed. The best part was the deck overlooking the river. We walked the "board walk" in the afternoon as well as the evening. Had a great meal, beer and entertainment at the brew pub. We kept the door and windows open... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just steps away from the western saloons and aromatic bakeries of downtown Winthrop, the Hotel Rio Vista's rustic facade blends seamlessly with the town's old-time western atmosphere. Overlooking the confluence of the Chewuch and Methow rivers, the hotel features guest rooms that offer private balconies, hand-crafted wood furniture, and works by local artists. A flat-screen HD television and free wireless internet access keep guests connected, while an outdoor picnic area and riverside hot tub offer the chance to unplug within earshot of the mellifluous sounds of nature and the soaring wings of Eagles and Osprey. For winter adventurers, the hotel is just across the pedestrian bridge from the ice rink and start of the Methow Valley's immaculately groomed ski and fat biking trails. The hotel features a Bike and Ski Wax room just for such outdoor activities. All of the Hotel Rio Vista's rooms include free high speed WIFI, DirecTV HD, private riverside decks, coffee bar with Seattle's Best coffee, mini-fridge, hair dryer, A/C, and microwaves. ... more   less
