We stayed here a few years ago and it was a delightful place to stay, but shabby and disappointing this time. Individual cabins are very well built and each is decorated in a different eclectic theme. They have whirlpool tub but there was not enough hot water to fill the tub above the water jets, so it was useless. Have...

My husband and I stayed here about 10 days ago, and were so pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and perfect these cabins were! We stayed in cabin 4, it was Hunter Themed. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was huge and super clean! The shower felt amazing after our 22 hour travel day. I didn't get the full feel for...

We spent one night here en route to Ely. The cabins are bigger than they look on the website. Our cabin was clean and comfortable with quality fittings and a large bath. We had cabin 19. Windmill Ridge is in a peaceful location just outside the town. They have the only restaurant we noticed in the town and it does...

If you prefer fresh air, privacy, clean and spacious indivisible cabins this is the place to stay. Great rates and pet friendly too! The "Schoolhouse" was perfect for a great nights sleep with two twin beds and a queen. wouldn't even consider anything else on our yearly trip from Phoenix to Boise.

This hotel is a great value and probably as close as you can get to the Extraterrestrial Highway. The "rooms" are small cabins. Very quiet, clean, and cozy. Just the basics, no frills, but the beds are comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. You can easily walk from the cabin to the restaurant. The food is good, but...

And keep going until you reach the Windmill Ridge motel. Less of a motel and more of a series of cabins, this lodging is cozy, comfortable and surrounded by the peace and solitude of the high desert of the great basin. Cabins are independent log cabins completely made of wood with highs beamed ceilings and comfy furnishings. Each cabin is...

We stayed here one night on a trip to Area 51, we had just arrived in Vegas after a 10 hour flight and drove straight to Windmill Ridge so we could get an early start to Area 51 the next day. The cabins were very clean and tidy although a little dated, the beds were very comfortable and the location...

Quiet, clean, and friendly. Cabins behind a restaurant. Allowed an early check-in so I could get an early start out in morning. Had a nice meal in restaurant. The staff was very helpful. Great place to rest in high desert. Will return.

Windmill Ridge is a lovely collection of cabins in Alamo. Alamo NV is a tiny town with a population of around 1000 just over 90 miles north of Las Vegas in the middle of nowhere. For us it was a perfect place to stop for the night as it was exactly half way on our two-day road trip. I made...

These are clean, well-decorated cabins. Most of the cabins are seperated from each other, with a few double cabins. They are decorated in country fashion and are extremely comfortable and cozy. One can park their car right in front of the cabin, which makes it real easy to unload and load your car. The place is a mile or so...
