Great Falls vs. Choteau

Need to stay somewhere for the night after touring Many Glacier area. Recommendations have been made for staying in either Great Falls or Choteau. Anyone have experience staying in either place and thoughts as to which is better. thanks

CeCe, comparing Choteau to Great Falls is comparing apples to oranges. Choteau is a darling little town, quitessentially Montana minus the tourists. There are a couple of decent restaurants to chose from. It is nestled into the Rocky Mountain Front, which is spectacular, in my opinion (where the Great Plains meet the Rockies). Downtown Choteau feels like you're in a movie set from another era. BTW, just to the west of this town is David Letterman's Montana home.

Great Falls is a city. You enter it by way of freeways. You have dozens of choices of hotels and restaurants, but keep in mind that this is a Montana city, servicing the needs of those who live in MT. While there are some good tourist attractions there...notably the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center....it's not a great big city with all the big city attractions.

Probably your choice will narrow down to how much driving you feel like doing that day. Also if you want to savor a bit more of the Montana countryside, by all means stay in Choteau.
