Extremely clean. Older strip type motel. Looks to be recently repainted and updated. Would stay there again.

I chose this hotel because it had a 4.5 star rating, the best in Custer. This is not a 4.5 star hotel. It is an extremely clean and tidy place for certain, but the standard room is a matchbox with a substandard bed and no coffee maker. The slope of the parking spaces is something to behold. Paid $119 for this. Good location though. Younger people may find this hotel charming but older folks should think twice.

Nice retro-property reminiscent of a Route 66 motel. Room is small and taken care of. Bathroom was super clean. Power plugs built into the bedside lights are convenient for cell phone charging. Small fridge and microwave. Assigned parking in front of the room. Would definitely stay there again!

Really nice team and exceptionally clean. Was a pleasure to visit.

We stayed at the Rocket Motel for 2 nights in Mid April. The room was spotless, bed comfortable with adequate amentities. We had our dog with us(they have a few dog friendly rooms but you need to let them know before.) and there was a large area that he could do his business right next to the Motel. the only thing is we were there out of season so many of the restaurants were closed but on the other hand, the parks were wie open so we could take our time driving or pulling over for pictures with no one around. The weather was perfect.

I'm so sorry you found the rooms too small. The motel was built in 1949 so the rooms aren't spacious but we've done our best to make them as efficient as possible with the remodel. Our beds are double pillowtop from serta , again my apologies that it didn't accommodate your need. We don't have coffee pots in rhe rooms but have coffee available in the office from 7 am to 10 pm. We also have some flat parking spaces available upon request. Again my apologies that our motel didn't accommodate your needs. Thank you, God bless, Brenda and Don
