We spent two nights at Hotel Rio Vista and wish we could stay longer. This small hotel is two stories along the main street in Winthrop and the rooms... ground and second floor all overlook the Methow river, and in these waning days of winter, it was a gorgeous setting. Room we had was a two queen bed room on...

This is the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed in. I loved every second of my time in the town of Winthrop and especially in my hotel room where I had a wonderful view of the river. I will definitely be coming back as soon as possible. I will definitely be back soon!

I've stayed at this hotel several times, but because of its location visiting in winter can be a challenge. Snow and pass conditions can force you to change your plans. Because of this I always double check on their cancellation policy. When I made my recent reservation I was told it was 48 hrs. It turns out I did have...

We are very sorry that you weren't able to make it over to stay with us on this occasion. As we discussed, our cancellation deadline is typically 2 days in advance; however, as noted in your confirmation email, holiday and event weekends require a 30 day advance notice to avoid penalties. We're sorry for the misunderstanding and that none of...

After being treated very poorly from the owners of the North Cascades Mountain hostel, Rio Vista was a wonderful breath of fresh air. The owner and staff were helpful, accommodating and very kind. This is a great place with nice clean rooms in a quiet part of town within walking distance to everything. I highly recommend this place.

This place usually has an opening for last minute bookings. Always clean and easy to relax here. Walk to everything, view of the river. They have made a few annoying booking mistakes in past but no big deal in the big picture.

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
