This motel is absolutely immaculate, everything is neat, tidy, and fresh. We loved the retro vibe and the hosts are marvelous. The king sized bed was divine and the pillows were comfy too. We loved our stay at the Rocket!

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.
