    Our Rocket Motel experience was positive in every way, from booking with Brenda, to checking in, to staying in the no-frills-yet-everything-you-need spotless room with comfortable beds. This is a great place to stay in the Black Hills!

    Spent two nights here. Very close to downtown. Offerred 10% discounts at several restaurants. Decor may be dated or it may be unique. Does it matter when the bed is comfortable? The room is clean? Very busy little place. Prompt, efficient and courteous staff.

    I agree with all the positive comments that have been made. I would just add this: If you could shrink me up a little and put a cot in the bathroom, I would have been content just to stay there all week! It's no coincidence...More

    CLEAN....COMFY BEDS....EXCELLENT LOCATION.....but what I APPRECIATED the most was the kindness of the owners! Traveling as a single mother with my 13 year old daughter Don gave us great directions to our next destination...which was off the beaten path. Took his advice and arrived safely....More

    We went on the road past the crazy horse memorial and it took about 45 min. Make sure you return that way, we turned left from Rushmore and if took a bit longer to get back and a bit more navigation.
