Glacier National Park Information


Rising Sun Motor Lodge

Located 6 1/2 miles (11km) from St. Mary, just off Going-to-the-Sun Road, the Rising Sun consists of a complex made up of a restaurant, a motor inn, cottages, a camp store, a gift shop, and a service station. The basic motel rooms are just that--basic but uninspiring motel rooms--that are completely adequate for a good night's rest and in an excellent location for those who want to explore the eastern side of the park from Going-to-the-Sun Road. The cottages (you rent half of a duplex) are more interesting, but a bit on the rustic side. All units here are no-smoking.
