4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Rocket in late August 2014. Check in was quick and simple. The rooms were small, but super clean - which is very important to this gal! We had the family suite which had 3 full sized beds, great for 2 kids and parents. Not very much storage for the size of the room, but if you... More

We booked two double rooms and they were extremely clean with comfortable beds and the wifi seemed to work fine. There isn't a lot of storage space and while it had air conditioning it worked on a timer making it a little hard to regulate the temperature. There isn't in-room coffee but for just a few dollars more they'll provide... More

When called to book a room asked about parking motorcycles, and was given room with easy motorcycle parking on flatter area (parking lot is basically a hill) which was right outside our room. Room was nice with white linens and black and white decor. Had a little 2 room suite with kitchenette which included stovetop, flatware, utensils, pots/pans, toaster, and... More

This is a non-smoking hotel with parking outside your door. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are very clean. This place has a retro feel to it. The people are so friendly and accommodating. I would recommend it if you are looking for a clean, basic place!

Our room, #28, was a queen bed, parking in front of the room and very clean. The bed is comfy and the white cotton linens can be laundered and look in good shape. NO SMOKING room, which I have to have, so this is pleasing. The refrigerator has an annoying, high-pitched whine, so we unplugged it and will report it... More

If you are looking for exceptionally friendly service and a clean place to stay, choose the Rocket Hotel. Our last stay was in the "suite" which is a little bigger, included a frig and microwave and a leather couch. The furnishings are all retro and tastefully done. The beds are really comfy and the sheets are super soft! The coffee... More

The Rocket Motel proved to be a great place to base out of and visit the surrounding area. The architecture is right out of the 50's and the property is very well maintained. The room was small, but very clean and tidy. It included a desk, small fridge, and microwave. The bed was comfortable and the shower good. The room... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had 2 rooms. Our rooms were really clean, the towels were fluffy and the beds were comfy. We were asleep for the majority of time we were at the Rocket Motel as we were out and about exploring the surrounding area the rest of the time. There are places to eat within easy walking... More

If you are looking for a clean safe place to stay then this motel is the place. Check in was easy and the room was clean. Motel looks like it was recently updated. Even get discounts at local eating places if you show them your room key. Owner is very helpful and wants your stay to be a pleasant one.

The Rocket Motel stay was excellent. The Units are very clean and affordable and are within walking distance of local restaurants and shops. The Rocket Motel is also a short distance away from Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, and the Crazy Horse memorial.
