I can't complain and I can't compliment... everything was pretty average. The hotel seemed on par with the others that we saw on the island and the room was an OK size and was clean. There's a pretty good gelato place outside of the hotel. The best part about this hotel's location was that is was pretty much right accross from the ferry, so you don't have to walk far with your luggage.
If you are looking to explore the island of Elba, I would recommend staying on the other side at Porto Azzurro. Rio Marina wasn't very tourist friendly and had a real small town feel, but Porto Azzurro was much more hospitable to tourists (at least in our experience). We explored the island by bus, and the other side seems to be a bit more fun (not that this is an exciting place... it is more of a relaxing and laid back place).
Do I recommend Elba? If you need a vacation from your vacation like we did, then absolutely. Do I recommend Hotel Rio Sur Mare? If you want to stay on this side of the island, then yes. For what is was, it was OK.
