The Rocket Motel is a great place to stay for the budget-conscious traveler in the Black Hills. My family of 4 stayed in a room with 2 double beds, at a rate lower than anywhere else we could find.
The room was small, but very neatly kept. They recently upgraded to new, pillow-top mattresses, and they are fantastic. They also offer some larger "family" floor plans that we didn't see from the inside, but you could obviously tell from the outside that they were considerably larger than the standard rooms.
We didn't have any special needs, but the front desk was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. They don't have any type of breakfast, but you can grab a cup of coffee in the office before you head out for the day.
While we were out there, it didn't look like reservations were completely necessary because there was a vacancy posted every afternoon, but by nightfall there were no rooms left. As the tourist season picks up, I would expect reservations to become necessary.
Don't miss out on this very nice, and reasonably priced, motel that is centrally located in the Black Hills.
