All the rooms are right next to the river & it was wonderful to go to sleep listening to the sound of the river, or sit on the balcony enjoying it & the surrounding scenery. Every room faces the river & has a balcony. The owners have used local artisans for wall art, woodwork, pegs etc (see the website picture...

The room was very clean and tidy. It felt very cozy and, of course, you cannot beat the view! We had excellent service from the time we made the reservations until the time we checked out. We will be staying here again! :)

The room was very nice and you could listen to the river. There is no continental breakfast but has refrigerator and coffee. I would stay there again as you can walk to the downtown. We checked other places and were happy with the cost. It also has a little deck.

Loved staying at the Hotel Rio Vista for a quiet couples weekend. Our room was nicely appointed with a fridge large counter to put our things on. The couch was very comfortable and we could see the river while sitting. Our view was outstanding of the river. It was wonderful to be so close. We never turned on the tv;...

The location of the Hotel Rio Vista is a short (I mean really short) distance to walk into town, located right on the river (beautiful view from our room), comfortable bed, wonderful helpful hotel employees and it has plenty of parking. We will definitely stay here again! One slight negative, the carpet looked like it needed to be cleaned in...

This hotel in the friendly town of Winthrop is a great place for exploring the North Cascades. The hotel is situated near the river and every room has a balcony and a river view. Great rooms, clean and the staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel does not have a restaurant so also for breakfast you need to find a...

This is the second time I've stayed at Rio Vista in Winthrop, WA. This is a great alternative for those families visiting the Methow Valley area versus staying at the much more expensive Sun Mountain Lodge, 9.4 miles up the mountain. The rooms are very clean and each one has a small balcony overlooking the river. Very peaceful! Everything downtown...

Rio Vista is well located, with the river and river walk outside your patio door. We were lucky to have a parking lot, ground level room, so we didn't have to do stairs up or down. It feels very private when you step on your patio overlooking the river. The basic amenities provided didn't allow me to give five stars,...

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
