“Probably nicer than other hotels in town, but still only about a two star.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2009

First let me clarify the previous post, the owners are not the young couple. Their mom is the owner. HWY noise can be drowned out by running the AC. I was there for a few days along with other people, so we had a few rooms. I only had the opportunity to see two rooms. The young couple and staff were friendly and helpful. However, the owner can be short and slightly past the boarder of rude.

Our room was nice, well put together (items matched) and equipped with microwave; small fridge and full size coffee pot (not the normal 4 cup). What I didn’t like about our room was the carpet had some stains and the shower. No tub and the shower head points at the door so setting the water temperature and entering/exiting the shower is a challenge. Also, some of the tiles are cracked. The cleaning crew didn’t clean up as well as I expected. There were coffee marks from coffee cups/stirrers on the table from the morning that remained in the afternoon.

They may have several rooms that are nice; at least that’s what it looks like on the website. But the other room I was able to see wasn’t nice. The top of the wall was white and the bottom was deep bright blue. There wasn’t a border or chair rail tying it together so it was not nice to look at. The bedspreads were very bold and the pictures didn’t seem to pull in the blue either. It looked more like a child’s room that wasn’t finished.

Overall, I don't think its a bad place for a traveler to stay and you can tell that they are working on the place. I would give it 2.5 start, but I don't think Rio Vista has too many options.

This motel is nicer on the inside than the outside--the room was better than I expected. Appreciated the microwave and mini-fridge. Owners are a very sweet young couple.

  • Liked — nice rooms
  • Disliked — some rooms are smoking, and people smoked near the stairs, outdoor tables, etc.
