The Clown Motel

The Clown Motel has become quite the Tonopah landmark! It was named “America’s Scariest Motel” due to its clown theme and proximity to the Old Tonopah Cemetery.

Many people are terrified of the Clown Motel. Some of the murals in the rooms are sure to give guests nightmares. But don’t worry, there are also “happy clowns”, especially in the lobby. People from all over the world send clowns to the Clown Motel and the collection now numbers 2,050!

Make sure you grab a Tonopah Old Cemetery Walking Tour Brochure from the office and explore the cemetery while you are at it.

Come to Tonopah and make a stop at the Clown Motel, maybe even test your bravery and stay the night!

All your friends will be jealous.  Or think you are crazy.  Either way it’s a great conversation starter!
