We stayed at several places in Glacier - Rising Sun Motor Inn, Apgar Village Inn, Many Glacier Hotel, and Swiftcurrent Inn. My experience with Rising Sun was the most memorable because as soon as I walked in, the room smelled of urine. I didn't dare think about how the smell got there, but the very, very old carpet, curtains, and comforter were certainly suspect. Everything inside the room was very old. I also tried to make hot water with the coffee maker and it came out brown (had not been washed). The bathroom was extremely small with just enough room for a shower and a toilet. When the door is opened, you almost feel like the cabin and bathroom are one room. Make sure you are close and comfortable with your cabin mates!
For close to $150/night, I found the standards extremely outrageous. Overall, if this is your only option, you'll make it through the night, but I find my experiences backpacking cleaner and more comfortable than my night at the Rising Sun.
