    Everything was perfect at the motel. In November most restaurants and shops in Custer are either closed or on limited winter hours. But we still had a great time with the locals. The Rocket is right in the middle of all the fun bars, restaurants,...More

    Very cool retro hotel. The rooms were as clean as clean can be. Had everything you needed to stay for a weekend. Even got a discount at a local pub/grub for showing my key. Ownership was very friendly. I would stay there again without hesitation.

    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.
