This Creepy Clown Motel Has Been Named America’s Scariest Motel

Hot breakfast and nightmares included.

If you’ve ever wanted to never sleep again, have we got the place for you! The Clown Motel in Tonopah, Nevada, is open for visitors looking for a thrill (or for people who just really like clowns? Do they exist?).


If the sight of an illuminated juggling clown welcoming you to the hotel promising “clean rooms” (not much of an endorsement) and “singles for 39.50” fills you with cheer, then come on down to the Clown Motel.

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.

Oh, and every room is clown-themed: There are clowns on the doors and portraits of famous clowns (hi, Bozo!) hang on the walls.
