When we woke up in the morning there had been a dusting of snow and wow,the view was just stunning. So... More

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... More

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.

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.

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
