I’ve been hearing about the addition to the Stage Stop Inn on Choteau’s Main Street for awhile so I was excited to see the finished product last week.
I’ve stayed at the Stage Stop before and have always like the fact that they tie in a local theme for decor.
With rooms on two floors, a swimming pool, complimentary breakfast room and a nice lobby, it seemed complete. Well, their vision grew and so did the motel!
There are now a total of 77 sleeping rooms, with the additional rooms expanded to the north of the original structure and on three floors. If you are on the third floor facing west you’ll have amazing views of the Rocky Mountain Front.
Connecting the original hotel to the new part is The Livery Saloon, a small and cleverly decorated full-liquor lounge. An original sliding barn door screens off a handful of gaming machines from the main saloon.
Just beyond the saloon is the Rocky Mountain Events Center with 3,200 square feet of meeting/event space.
The entire meeting space can be broken down into four separate rooms, all with names taken from areas of the nearby Rocky Mountain Front -North Fork, South Fork, Our Lake and Ear Mountain.
A top notch catering kitchen is just off the entrance to the Rocky Mountain Events Center and staff had prepared a handout listing items that are included or available for room rentals and also an ala carte menu for functions.
As I toured the “new” Stage Stop Inn I could hear the pride in voices of local residents who were seeing it for the first time.
Staff was excited (probably exhausted from last minute details) and everyone was enjoying this great addition to Choteau, Montana.
