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.
In keeping with the era in which the Motor Inn was
