    The Rocket Motel definately lives up to all of the good reviews. The Motel is spotlessly clean and a great place to stay in Custer. Custer is the perfect location when exploring the Black Hills and surrounding areas.

    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.
