The Rocket Motel is locally owned & managed. A throw-back remodeled 50s style motel which is moderately priced, very clean and ideally located. These folks know and care about hospitality. We will definitely stay here again.

Immaculate, retro Mom & Pop motel. The proprietors are super-nice and friendly and the little porches and patios outside the rooms gave me a chance to meet some other guests and sit up far into the night talking. I just completed a month-long journey through the U.S. I stayed at

How far are we from Mt. Rushmore National Park....?
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.

"The parking lot is sloped - if you need level parking ask for a room at the back."
"There's differences between the rooms, although they have similar decor. Some are bigger than others"
"Obviously rooms further off the main street"
"All rooms are equally the same in quality (exceptional) and noise (very little)."
"There are an assortment of room sizes to meet your needs!"
