Totally charming place. They have about 30 rooms - and still had the needed two when we booked. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. And the beds are comfortable. No free breakfast, but we plan to visit the bakery next door for that. The balconies provide a great place to relax over a drink...

This was a clean, comfortable, modern hotel set on the riverbank. We left our window open all night to hear the sounds of the rushing water in the river. They do have a hot tub too. The front desk people were helpful and friendly. Since they do not have breakfast, we walked down the block (on wooden sidewalks) to choose...

Great location in Winthrop, right on the river, leave your door or window open at night and enjoy the sounds of the rushing river. Located about 1 1/2 blocks from town center all the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Rooms were comfortable, decent size with a nice deck and deck chairs, will stay there again.

We stayed here for two nights. We were greeted by the owner-very professional and friendly. The room was extremely clean (not the dust you see on lampshades, etc. at chain lodgings), nice location right at the end of the Winthrop Main Street and backs to the river.

I was looking for a peaceful room with a view that could help drain the stress away. The Hotel Rio was perfect. This older style hotel is located right on a beautiful river, the rooms have balconies which overlook the river and the mountains in the distance. Leave your car and walk to town which is less than a block...

Great place on the little river. Very easy to find, parking pretty tight. We had a suite which was great size for us. Enjoyed the patio over looking the creek. Nice amenities, and very comfortable bedding.

My wife and I stayed at the Rio Vista in Winthrop two nights ago. We had just hiked Maple Pass and didn't want to drive all the way back to Seattle so made the 35 mile drive the Winthrop. The bed was situated such that we could see both rivers that merge just down from the motel. The small deck...

Stayed here 2 nights while exploring the Winthrop area. We had a clean, 2nd floor room with decorations from local artists. We had a comfortable king bed. Great location, right next to river. Hotel is on the main street and very easy to walk to town. All rooms face the river, so we didn't hear any street noise. We slept...

Extremely comfortable rooms right on the river in downtown Winthrop. Makes it a lovely point to head into Winthrop for shopping or breakfast/dinner. It is right next to rocking horse bakery in Winthrop so although there isn't food at the hotel it is right next to it in town.

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
