We enjoyed a fantastic time last week at GNP and Rising Sun was our favorite place after spending 1-2 nights each at the other Xanterra properties. As others have said, it is centrally located and rooms are modernized yet the unique decor reflects the spirit...More

The room was small, but it was clean and had everything we needed for our one-night stay. I liked that there was a separate waste basket for recycling. The heater worked well and kept us comfortable during the cool night. The only negatives were limited...More

We stayed in one of the cabins. It was peaceful and super clean! We did the trail behind the cabins, and that was amazing even though it was challenging. We tried the restaurant, but preferred another outside the park. I would definitely stay here again.

Built in 1940, Rising Sun Motor Inn and Cabins sits adjacent to spectacular St. Mary Lake inside Glacier National Park and is surrounded by soaring mountain peaks. In addition to 72 cabins and motor inn rooms, More you will find the Two Dog Flats Grill, campstore, and gift shop. Red Bus tours, boat cruises, and numerous other activities are available at this centralized location. All guestrooms at Rising Sun Motor Inn and Cabins are rustic, yet comfortable. In keeping with the era in which the rooms were built, they offer guests limited amenities and old-world style accommodations resulting in a one-of-a kind National Park lodging experience. A limited number of ADA-accessible rooms are available and are booked based on space available. Less
