I have stayed at some sketchy motels over the years, but nothing quite equals the bizarre Clown Motel in Tonopah, Nevada. Located adjacent to and on top of an old west cemetary, the motel/roadside attraction offers spooky, and IMHO very creepy, accomodations for the curious traveler. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those clown-phobic people that are weirded-out by clowns, I just don’t find them amusing on any level. Still, if I every find myself roadtripping in western Nevada, I’d consider staying the night for the ghosts.
The entertaining video below provides a comprehensive history of the Clown Motel and a tour of the creepy hotel. I love the enthusiasm of the new owners for the place.
