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.”

    I stayed at that place just before New Years. The scariest part about the place was the conditions of the room. I dont know if this is part of the gimmick or what but the rooms are laughably bad. Half the bulbs are blown out, the AC was built into the wall so high that you couldnt see the controls on the top, so they taped handwritten instructions to the wall as a guide, half of the dresser drawers were screwed shut, the TV was from 1992, as was the microwave. The office actually closed, so you were basically left to your own devices around midnight with nobody to call should there be any problems…

    With all that said though there werent any bugs, which was a surprise given the state of the room. Ive worked in some shady motels and have a decent idea what to look for and everything looked pretty legit. So the place is fun to stop at if youre on the way to Vegas with a group of friends but I def dont reccomend it if youre with a picky boyfriend or girlfriend. Honestly though, if youre in that town you have pretty much no option other than sleeping in your car.
