    Wonderful stay at Lake McDonald. Beautiful location, ease of access to Glacier activities, gracious and helpful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel and it's beautiful location. Red Bus tour is exceptional way to learn about the Park.

    Quiet, comfortable, clean rooms. Nothing fancy, but hey- you don't come to Glacier to hang out in your room all Day (I hope not, anyway!). Cheaper and less crowded than the nearby Lodge, which was like a zoo.

    I do not know the exact elevation, but it is on a lake and therefore relatively low.
