We stayed here for 5 nights. Our cabin was newly renovated and was small, though very well appointed. The furnishings were decorated nicely, and we could park right outside our room. The walls weren't too thin, so we didn't hear our neighbors. There is no television, which was fine with us. High quality coffee was included. The mattresses were new,...

We spent three nights in one of the motor inn rooms. The room was clean, comfortable, and recently remodeled. We had a roll away and the room comfortably sleep three of us, with some room for gear. The location was perfect for our exploring the Many Glacier area and although we didn't see a bear in the huckleberry bushes right...

We have stayed at every property except for Lake McDonald Lodge during our visits to Glacier. This place is usually your last choice if you don't book at least one year ahead. We stayed at the Motor Inn rooms after our stay at Swiftcurrent and before moving on to Village Inn at Apgar, which actually is our most favorite place...

Very clean room and the decor was appropriate for the park! This is an ideal location for the east side of park and both traveling on Going to the Sun Road and a short drive to Many Glacier. The office has a small restaurant and the food is very good.

As we journeyed across Glacier, we stayed in the cabins at Rising Sun. The cabin was updated with new furniture and decorations. The coffee maker was on top of a desk which was the best place for it. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had nice fluffy towels with Glacier's signature lotion, shampoo and body wash. The walls are...

These cabin are nestled against the mountains and are a throwback in time. They have recently been updated and had everything we needed for our stay. We stayed in 14A & 14B. The two twin beds were comfortable and although, the bathroom was small, it was plenty big for the two of us. Everything was clean. We liked the fact...

We stayed in one of the motor inn rooms for 5 days. We chose this room over the cabins or store motel rooms based on reviews and we are glad we did. It was super comfortable, clean, and perfect for a trip to Glacier. Plenty of towels, soap, shampoo , a coffeemaker. We booked it almost a year in advance....

This is an old-style motel, 1950's vintage, but it satisfied our need--it was clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom worked fine, and it was in the East Glacier area. It had been refurbished to play up the 1950's "road trip" theme in its décor, the carpet and furniture were in good condition and the linens were comfortable. Expect just...

The room was nice and rustic looking. The bathroom was rather small and no shampoo, etc was provided. Nit a big deal if you go prepared. Restaurant handy. No air conditioning. Was concerned but made out with a fan. Was convenient to the park.

We stayed in the small cabins and enjoyed our stay. They are recently renovated and very well done! Have a coffeemaker, hair dryer, but otherwise just your basic clean cabin. Bed was comfortable and you can't beat the scenery of Glacier National Park! Only drawback was the size of the shower. Really small!!

“The cabin decor is worth the relatively small difference between it and their rooms.”

“Choose a cabin that backs up to the mountains (10-18)”
  • The decor is coordinated, rustic. I loved the red bus headboard.
