It was cute online but not as cute in person. Didn’t know there was a second building. Young man seemed to show everyone to their room but us. We ended up at the wrong spot and another staff member showed us to our room

This place is so unique and romantic. We had an attic room. Loved it so much. The only negative is that the fire alarm went blaring off in the whole house at 10:30 on Saturday night. I was nodding off and it woke me in the worst way. We all had to evacuate the building while the fire crew inspected the whole building. I never did find out what exactly set it off. It happens to be a terrible trigger for me... BUT, at least it was a false alarm. It could have been way worse!

The Rio Vista was a pleasant surprise! The location is perfect! Walk to the boardwalk. Super cute inside. Rooms are clean, modern and really nice. We'll stay there again for sure.
