What a wonderful gem of a motel in Custer! Very clean and comfortable. Loved the old-time feel and decor. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. I would certainly pass up the chain hotels for the Rocket Motel!

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.
