America's Scariest Motel

There’s a lonely old motel out on Highway 95 that is downright terrifying to stay in, and considered by many guests to be haunted. This motel is home to thousands of clowns, and even if you’re not currently scared of clowns you will be after staying at Tonopah, Nevada’s Clown Motel:

The clowns are just the beginning of the creepy factor found in this odd relic from the boomtown's past, and people who come for the clowns stay for the fact that it's graveyard adjacent.

That's right- if the clowns don't get you, the ghosts of a bunch of gold miners who fell victim to the "Tonopah Plague" back in 1902 certainly will!

Personally, I'd be more comfortable sleeping in the graveyard than a dirty old motel full of clown "memorabilia", but that's just me...

I've stayed here a few times over the years. it's cheap, clean, the wifi works, and been quiet when I've been there. not a bad hotel at all. and frankly I love the memorabilia. I've stayed at a couple scary motels over the years and this is definitely not one of them.

We stayed there back in 2010. The clowns were cute, the price decent, the rooms fine; and a check of various travel sites show that most agree. There's nothing scary about the place, except of course for those scared of clowns. (As I'm scared of heights, there are many tall hotels which frighten me.)
