This is NOT a hotel or 5 star resort. So if you go there expecting anything like that you will be disappointed.

There are NO amenities here. No cell (At-t) or Wi-Fi service.

Unless you book an entire unit (trailer) you will be sharing a bathroom, living room, and kitchen with any other occupants that may or may not be there.

Our room 2-1 was clean and had ample plugs for us to plug in our various devices. The bed was to hard for our liking, but it was clean. The door locked and every window had a covering.

The room is up against the bathroom so if there were other people staying in the unit I could see that being a problem. However, it was just us for the night.

The air conditioning unit in the room worked great and kept us a nice temp all night. We did not turn the air on in the rest of the unit, but it did have one. We found some towels and stuff to make coffee in our room

The trailer is older, but is kept clean.

The bathroom window did not have a curtain, but it was a privacy glass window that is not near the shower.

The staff was awesome and friendly! The food was decent and fairly priced. We had the alien burger, which was served on a sandwich roll. For breakfast it was pancakes and eggs.

Stargazing: this place is great! You can drive a little ways out to get away from the few lights in the town, but it is not really needed.

Love it! Cool cool stop…an absolute must if you’re in the area.

I only gave 4 stars as breakfast was good but the menu was a little limited…but to be fair to them the service was good, clean, tidy, decent
Not too expensive…they could easily charge a lot more/what they wanted as there’s nothing there

OMG! This place is adorable and reasonably priced. The souvenirs are not going to break the bank. Just that fact alone will bring me back because that tells a lot about a business owner; but, next time we're going to stay the night. The staff is so patient and helpful it really was such a fantastic day! We had the cheeseburgers, potato salad, bacon, and, mac and cheese which all were pretty tasty and served picnic style.

There's a nice sized spaceship on a tow truck out in the front for all your 'alien' photos. I really can't say enough about Rachel, NV as a whole, blink and you'll miss it all but, the people there are all welcoming. If you're into abandoned places there's a out of commission mine close by (a few city blocks) on the other side of the Extra Terrestrial Highway 375 which was such a neat place. If you're coming from Vegas you'll see it on the right side. Thank you A'Le'Inn for such an awesome day!

Really enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend if you're looking for a neat experience. The low rating just reflects lack of amenities that you'd get at most other hotels.

Things to know: If you are arriving after 6, you need to make sure and call. They store closes around then and no one is there after then. Also, there are no laundry facilities if you need them. The room also includes a shared bathroom unless you rent the entire unit. The rooms have air, but no cable, and wifi is hit and miss. No breakfast or pool or other things most hotels offer. Very isolated but felt very safe.

The Little A’le Inn it a gem of a place to visit. On the outskirts of Area 51

Originally called “Sandy”, Rachel is the youngest town in Nevada and is considered the”UFO Capital of the World.” The town was named after Rachel Jones, the first child born in the community founded by D.C. Day in 1978. The community has been featured in magazines, books, television shows and many major newspapers as the center of UFO activity. This resulted in the renaming of Highway 375 as “The Extraterrestrial Highway” by the Nevada State Legislature.

The restaurant has Alien memorabilia along with a unique menu and a full bar. Rooms are available. Meals are not expensive but they will take the edge off and leave a smile.

Stop on in at the Little A’le’Inn…. Tell em ET sent you.

The little_A_le_Inn was the lunch stop with our tour Adventure Photo Tours - Las Vegas. I had seen the Diner and Inn featured in a documentary years ago and always wanted to stop here. I Aboustley loved it!. If you are a Ufo fanatic or curious about what is out there then this is the stop for you. I loved the little gift shop for t-shirts and sweatshirts. The food was so delicious too I wound up getting the Alien Burger with Alien sauce and it was excellent. The owner of the diner Pat sat down with the group and she is such a sweet and nice Lady the whole place made you feel like you were part of a large family.

An iconic place for UFO enthusiasts or just to see. Full of Alien stuff (inside and out)and pictures. Lots of themed merchandise to buy. The diner serves goo food and drink; remember that this is in the middle of nowhere a couple of hours from anywhere else.

We did the usual trip from Las Vegas to 375 Extraterrestrial Highway and Rachel.
I was expecting for quite some time to go to Little A'Le'Inn, which it seems to be extracted from other times! Incredible well decorated, full of great staff and also nice people around that stops to get a drink.
They have a huge number of memorabilia, maps, mugs, shots, etc, etc, etc.
The food is very good too, my daughter is picky with it comes with food, but both burgers and sandwiches were good and my little one loved it.
If you have some spare change in bills, don't forget to sign it and put it there to be hang from the ceiling.
Outside also has some spots that are really good to take pictures.
The trip from LV is a little bit long, but worth every second.

Wonderful rustic drive takes you right the the Diner itself. The staff was friendly, and the food was good. Suppy got cheese drippings on his beard and blew one off like a Coomer! The gift shop had some nice little trinkets and whatnot.

This is my favorite desert to get drunk at. It's impressive that the staff doesn't care that you're hanging around getting drunk. I mean, I've gotten drunk at a lot of places, and after a point, they start to care that you're just hanging around, getting drunk. None of that here! Thanks for not judging or calling the cops.

Yes it is. It's a 30-45 min drive from Zhangjiajie. But really close to the entrance of the park. Nowadays they also have a pool. We highly recommend it!
