We returned to Glacier after a few years to stay in the RSMI again. Major renovations and improvements to the hotel rooms! Very clean, comfortable, and updated. Beds were very good as well as the bathroom. Price is a little high but you are paying for the location. About the only negative is that you need to walk to the restaurant to get a bucket of complimentary ice. This location is a perfect base camp for experiencing the whole park. One hour from Two Medicine/East Glacier; one hour to Many Glaicer; 30 min to Logan Pass; and one hour to West Glacier. Also just right for a trip to Waterton for the day. General store, Two Dog Flats Restaurant, and directly across from St. Mary Lake Boat Dock.

With limited accommodations for visitors to Glacier Park, I was fortunate to be able to book a cabin room here, near the east end of the park. Overall, it was a pleasant departure from the Hampton Inns we had been in for the previous several days. We had twin beds in a medium-sized room with gorgeous views both front and back. Internet service is in the main lodge only. No phone, TV, etc. but a clean, quiet room within the park. The main building has a dining room, and though it’s a captive audience, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and reasonable prices. I had sweet potato pancakes, which were very good. If you are staying here overnight, or just passing through on your way to the sights in the Park, it is a great stop for breakfast. You can also get a boxed lunch to take with you as you visit the park, but order it the day before. I would recommend the Rising Sun motel if you are visiting Glacier Park.

1-Night Stay in Store Motel Room

We were lucky to switch out a night last minute from Apgar Village Inn to Rising Sun Motor Inn due to the fires during the second week of September. We actually stayed the last night they were open for the season. We had a Queen Store Motel room. The rooms are located right next to the general store. The general store employees helped us with ice to keep our small cooler stocked. Our room was very small, but super cozy, clean, and the decor had been updated. The sink is outside the room, which can be convenient at times, but is very low. My husband is 6'4 and had to kneel to brush his teeth. We got a kick out of that. I'm 5'3, and still found the sink low. The shower and bathroom were again small, but still clean and functional with plenty of hot water. The room was located off a hallway with other rooms, and it was a bit noisy when others shut doors or walked in the hallway. Luckily it quieted down overnight. It also helped because we had a big box fan that we ran all night to keep air moving (no AC, but it was so cool we didn't need it) and also as a perfect source of white noise. We loved being able to stay in the park! During our one-night stay, we got up very early to see sunrise at Wild Goose Island, and we had probably less than a five minute drive to the overlook. Once we enjoyed the views, we had breakfast back at Two Dog Flats. Definitely not our best meal, but still convenient. I would stay again in the future for the convenience of being in the park!

The cabins are small, but very cozy. Plus you might find a bear at your door step.

Great location. Inside the park and just off the Going to the Sun. The cabins are cozy and nicely step up. They do have electricity and heat, so you can get the phones, etc charged. The bed was very comfortable. Overall it met our needs and was a great location!. Where else can you be in the wild and still find a gift on the parking lot from a passing bear.

Rising Sun was our first of five Glacier lodges during a weeklong visit. While certainly the smallest, it was a wonderful place to begin the trip. We stayed in a 2-bed cabin for two nights. Although we unsuccessfully tried to get a motor inn room due to it supposedly being a bit bigger, the cabin was actually larger than some of the descriptions and photos suggest. The room was incredibly clean, the beds were comfortable, and we did not hear our neighbors -- possibly because of the box fan we propped in a window, which made the room very comfortable for July. The property itself is extremely quiet and peaceful, with beautiful views of the mountains. It is ideal for exploring the east side of Glacier. It's also close to restaurants in St. Mary and walking distance from the campground evening ranger program. We originally considered staying in St. Mary instead. But after seeing how shabby some of the cheaper places looked and with other locations having few amenities to justify the much higher cost, Rising Sun was by far the best value.
