The Creepiest Motel In America

February 7, 2017 | 4 Comments » | Topics: WTF

If you planning on taking a road trip from Las Vegas to Reno, then why not break up that long drive with a relaxing stay at the Clown Motel? It’s totally not creepy or anything.

It’s situated in Tonopah, a town literally miles from anywhere, but don’t worry about that, because you won’t be lonely at the Clown Motel…even if you wish you were. The motel office has over 500 clowns on display, and there’s even a stuffed, life-sized clown that sits in a chair in the lobby. 

If you have the guts to walk in, you’re immediately greeted by about 500 different toy clowns.

The lobby is littered with clowns, including a life-sized clown sitting in a chair, cradling a number of smaller clown dolls in its lap.

They’re everywhere. And they’re always watching.

Oh, and every room is clown-themed: There are clowns on the doors and portraits of famous clowns (hi, Bozo!) hang on the walls.

As luck would have it, the Clown Motel is located right next to the old cemetery, so you’ll have a nice view of one of the many wooden-and-tin headstones marking the dusty graves.

That being said, the motel and the cemetery both seem to be devoid of otherworldly happenings. There are few strange stories here and there, but most of the reviews of the motel just note the free WiFi and “mini breakfast.”
