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

Oldy Worldy - Wood everywhere. Clean and tidy. Everything we needed for one night. No food on site but available a short walk away.. Spectacular views over the river with abundant wildlife to be seen in the morning.

Agree with most of the reviews...Great Hotel right by the river. Relaxing sleep on a good bed,with the sound of the river rolling by. Walk out the front door, hang a left and you are in town. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We always enjoy our visits to Winthrop, especially when we are staying at the Rio Vista motel. Great location in town. This is a small rustic motel with all rooms overlooking the Methow River. Love the sound of the river at night - a great way to relax and fall asleep. If you are doing the Cascade Loop, this is... More

We pass through Winthrop on our motorcycle at least once each summer. We've always wanted to stay here, but this little hotel is always full when we pass through. We finally managed to book it and it didn't disappoint. Our room was on 3rd floor and had beautiful river views. It had two queen beds and it was clean and... More

I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. The rooms were large the beds were soft and my room was right on the river. The service was good and for the value I will stay there again. Walking distance to everything.

We had a group of 12 on motorcycles stay here. Had a very warm welcome after a cold ride over the Cascades. Great location, rooms were clean and up to date. Making plans to stay here again. Very close to all that Winthrop has to offer. We walked to a cowboy bar and grill for a nice meal. The whole... More

The Room was very nice. The amenities, furniture and layout was wonderful. The deck overlooking the rivers was fantastic. The hot tub (& view) was wonderful. The staff were great. And, only two doors down was a great bakery and coffee for breakfast.

Clean, not fancy, walking distance to everything. Bed was a bit soft, and you could really hear everything through the walls. But I would go back because of the location and people. Nicest most helpful staff ever.

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
