About Motel Lake McDonald

Motel Lake McDonald is located inside Glacier National Park in the same general area as the Lake McDonald Lodge & Cabins but the Motor Inn is run separately from the Lodge.

Motel Lake McDonald is a two-story structure with a motor-inn style.

All room access is exterior access. Parking is available directly in front of the lodge rooms but is limited and available on a first come first served basis.

Motel Lake McDonald is a fantastic choice of accommodation if you are looking for lodging in the park that is comfortable and inviting without being too expensive.

The Motel Lake McDonald is located within walking distance of the Lake McDonald Lodge, Russell's Fireside Dining Room, Jammer Joe's Grill and Pizzeria and Lucke's Lounge so you will find plenty of options for dining within an easy stroll from the motel.
