First time to Glacier. I was initially concerned about the Rising Sun Inn and Cabins since I was still able to make reservations four months prior to our trip (most popular locations book a year ahead). In the end, I was completely satisfied and would stay there again. As noted in other reviews about Rising Sun, the location has a... More

The Room: The room I had at Rising Sun Motor Inn and Cabins was beautifully rustic and quiet! The queen size bed was comfy and great after a long hike! I love the bathroom with large toiletry containers filled with hand soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. For $165, one queen size bed room is very affordable within the... More

We were excited to stay within the park, but the cabin was hardly worth the price. Granted, we stayed in one of the cheaper ones at $170ish a night. Small old room, worn dated carpet, but mattress was comfortable with nice linens. Heater worked well and was needed. Wished they supplied Adirondack chairs outside all the cabins but our less...

I booked one of the rooms at the "motor inn" based totally on location. My guidebook had warned me that the rooms were cramped and dated - imagine my surprise when we checked in and discovered that everything was freshly remodeled! Clean, comfortable, and funky decor. What a gem! We were in room #12 - any of the rooms in... More

My spouse and I stayed at the Rising Sun Motor Inn in the motel portion attached to the camping and gift store. This is a very good, reasonably-priced option for staying inside of Glacier National Park. The rooms are modestly furnished but everything is new for 2016 - paint, furniture and fixtures. There is wifi at the restaurant across the... More

Modern meets old-style 1950's cabins: eclectic mix of stylish remodel and vintage-like features. Clean, comfortable rooms in an older building next to gift shop/general store and across parking lot from not-to-be missed restaurant with amazing views. Restaurant is only place with wi-fi and I spent a few hours catching up there during breakfast. Friendly staff.

The location near the east side of the park Saint Mary Lake is close enough where we could drive up to the Many Glacier area to hike. We stayed in one the cabins and the accommodations are not new by any means, you do feel like you are in a cabin. However, the room was comfortable and there is a... More

Glacier National Park has been a bucket list destination for a while. Over the Fourth of July weekend, I had it happen. The location was wonderful - I definitely preferred the east glacier area to West Glacier. There were hiking paths right outside the door! We stayed two nights in two different rooms (should have booked a few weeks earlier)... More
