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.

We never actually saw any staff at this hotel as our tour guide booked us in and out. It doesn't do any food - not even breakfast - so we ate in town but the lack of people turned out to be part of its charm. We had a great back deck from which we could see deer in the...

The cleanest hotel room i have ever stayed in. King room was large and comfortable. Nicely decorated by local artists. The room had a great vibe and was super cozy. The river sang us to sleep every night. Great staff, very accommodating. Gave us extra towels and coffee when we asked. Next time we will request a 2nd floor room...

This facility is located on the river just on the edge of downtown. Close enough to walk the downtown area but somewhat out of the worst traffic flow. Beautiful view / sound of the river from the private balcony of the unit. No breakfast provided but 2 doors down from great take-out breakfast to bring back and eat on the...

We stayed here for three nights. Room is large enough for two but the sink and hair dryer situated outside the bathroom is very strange. Makes it difficult to get ready without waking the other person up. The mattress was very uncomfortable. The staff members were nice, although extremely quiet and didn't offer any suggestions at all as far as...

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
