We stayed in a cabin during Labor weekend 2008. The cabin was comfortable and included a double and a twin bed and a desk. Our cabin was carpeted and the bathroom was recently renovated. It was nice to turn the heat on and warm up as it was cool (low 40s) and rainy outside. I would describe this cabin as cozy and simple and it felt that it belonged in Glacier National Park.
The electrical wiring system in these cabins appears to be in need of an upgrade. When a hairdryer was plugged into the outlet by the sink, the fuse blew and the electricity went off. The electric heater system must be wired to a different fuse as this did not turn off. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable place to rest after a long day of hiking, Rising Sun Motor Inn is perfect. However, I would not recommend this place for a romantic gateway as there is not a fancy lodge or fireplace. We ate at the restaurant at Rising Sun and the tastey food and fare were similar to other restaurants in the national park. The hotel is also in a great spot for hiking at St Mary lake or driving the Going to the Sun Road to Logan Pass. These cabins are a great value and we would stay here again.
