This hotel looked like it might be a bad one when we first got in there. But it was actually ok. It was clean, and quiet, and close to everything we needed. The staff were very friendly too!
If I had to complain it would be to say that the bed has a "plastic" cover underneath the bedding that was annoyingly loud when you moved around on it. Thankfully we had two beds in the room (another plus was that one bed was in it's own room) and the second one was quieter. Oh, and I would not jump for joy on water pressure in the shower either.... but it was manageable.
We went out for breakfast, so I can't comment on the food, but when we went down there, there were a lot of people seemingly enjoying it.
Also it has a lot of family friendly amenities, especially for kids. And you can sleep in tents (well actually they are Tee Pees) if you want which looks fun.
Overall I would say it was a good place, I would probably try others in the area on my next trip but that is through no fault of this place.

... After chowing down, we headed out on our Friday adventure! And the adventure is..... boat trip on St. Mary Lake, with a stop for hiking. The company is the Glacier Park Boat Company (http://www.glacierparkboats.com). The boat left the dock at 10am. In about 40 minutes we were at Baring Falls. Folks had a couple of choices: look at the falls and go back, hike with a Ranger to St. Mary Falls, or hike on your own and come back on a later boat. We did ...

We stayed at Rising Sun campground and drove past a bear near the side of the road on the way there. Awesome bear spotting country here.
That night Chris heard some rustling in the forest right near the campsite and sure enough a black bear was eating berries about 5m away from the campground and a tent spot that had been closed due to bear activity in the area and in fact all tents were banned from the campground due to ...

Arrived at the campground
and set up. We puttered around for
awhile and eventually went to the park visitor center at 5:58 with it closing
at 6. Got enough information that we
decided to take the park shuttle up to Logan Pass first thing in the morning.
Fixed dinner and enjoyed a
cool evening after a fun ...
