We stayed two nights, one before an excursion to Granite Park Chalet and one afterward. This is not the level of accommodation ( or as expensive) as the lodges in the park however, if we found this a great place to stay for forays around St. Mary's Lake. The first stay was in a cabin duplex, known as a motor... More

Stayed here as a last minute plan when we couldn't find anything else on the west side of the park. I'll say this, it's a really basic motel, long overdue an upgrade and the price they demand seems steep. But, the tradeoff is you are right in the park, they have a pretty good restaurant (no bar) and the rooms... More

To pay over $140 a night for a room with two double beds and no hair dryer seems ridiculous but that's what you do if you want to be in the park. We stayed in one of the motel rooms and didn't have a fantastic view but the park is all around you. The room was very good sized and... More

The cabins were small, but large enough to be comfortable. The restaurant and its college kid staff was great and the location, on the Going to the Sun Road, was perfect. We stayed four days and enjoyed our stay.

Stayed a night here after a night at Many Glacier Hotel and we loved it. Very basic rooms, hot shower, and a no-frills restaurant. There's a general store there too and it's right across from the campgrounds. Very cheap alternative to camping and everything was super clean. We loved it here.

Great sunset. Beautiful view. The cabin was nice and had everything we needed. Good jumping off point for hiking in the park, if you are not camping. Looked on the East Side of the park and right off the Going to the Sun Road along St. Mary's Lake

My husband and I decided to check the accomodations at Rising Sun as we thought they looked pretty good but after this trip we will not be staying there again. While the check-in/out was smooth and efficient and the room was clean there were several drawbacks. We did not mind there being no television or phone but when we reached... More

Cabins are sufficiently equipped to be comfortable (heat, shower/bathroom). More importantly, they are well located in Glacier to allow you to drive to Many Glacier and Two Medecine, and get easy access to the park services like the bus shuttles.

We started our week at Glacier with 2 nights at Rising Sun Motor Inn. It is clean and basic as I expected for a National Park lodge. The room was no different than the room we had a "Many Glaciers" with a lower price tag. It really is just fine we you are there to hike and be outside. We... More

If you need a TV, microwave, fridge or other such amenities, this place is not for you. In fact, you probably shouldn't be in a national park. But if you are in Glacier to enjoy the trails, views, peace and quiet, then the motel units at Rising Sun offer a very good lodging option. We stayed in motel unit 10,... More
