Everybody alive has something that they are afraid of, whether they admit it or not. For some, it’s the fear of the dark, for others, it is the fear of creepy crawly critters like spiders or snakes.
However, some people have an even more inexplicable fear, like the fear of clowns. For many people, there is nothing as truly terrifying as a clown, which is why to them this hotel is the stuff of nightmares.
If you absolutely love clowns, then the Clown Motel in Tonopah, Nevada is the place for you! If you’re like… everyone else on the planet, then you might want to give this totally terrifying motel a pass the next time you’re driving t0 Vegas.
The sign just out front promises “clean rooms,” which seems like a basic requirement of a motel. That said, when your hotel is clearly haunted by the ghosts of roughly eight hundred dead clowns, it is important to remind potential customers of your other amenities.
The rooms are cheap. That is probably because the Clown Motel knows that if it wants to continue being a hotel and not simply nightmare fodder, it’s going to have to offer highly competitive prices.
If you ever walk inside of the Clown Motel’s office, you’ll find that every inch of the decor is clown-themed. Including a giant doll perched on a chair, rocking two other smaller clowns, and staring at you ominously as you make your initial deposit.
And just in case you were worried that the clowns stop when you leave the office – fret not, they absolutely do not. Clowns wait perched on every door frame to greet you. “Welcome to your adorable doom” they seem to say.
Thankfully, in the rooms themselves, the motel has seen fit to cut back a little on the over-the-top clown theme. That said, you can still expect to find at least one framed clown picture and the lingering fear that you are being watched.
The Clown Motel was recently voted the scariest motel in the country, and it’s easy to see why! In addition to all of the terrifying clown stuff, the motel also sits next door to a literal graveyard. Spooky, much?
So there you have it. If you can’t sleep without a view of a graveyard and clowns staring at you all the time is the only way you can sleep at night, we’ve found the hotel for you. Everybody else? Just run.
