On a road trip through Nevada, United States of America there are some housing peculiar to spend the night. For example, some are near winter wonderlands and some are near ghost towns.
In this sense, a hotel that stands out is the Clown Motel. Located in the small town of Tonopah, between Las Vegas and Reno, this place stands out for its clown theme, so it is not suitable for those with a phobia of these colorful characters.
Every corner of the hotel has a clown detail: from the entrance, where you can see a huge circus clown, to the rooms, which are decorated with themes from the films “IT”, “Halloween”, “The Exorcist”, “ Friday the 13th”, among others.
Room 108 is one of the most requested because it has a Pennywise painting right next to the bed. However, if you are someone who has a hard time falling asleep when surrounded by elements of terror, you can stay in Elvis’ room where the atmosphere is lighter.
According to the Vive USA platform, all rooms are cleaned daily, have a television, refrigerator, microwave, air conditioning, and heating, as well as being pet friendly.
On the other hand, in the Clown Motel reception, you can see a collection of more than 3 thousand clown figures. From some very tender to others that are scary.
Plus, as a bonus, the hotel is right next to the historic Tonopah Cemetery, where many residents say spirits haunt the place because workers who died in a mining accident in 1911 were buried there.
This unusual place was born in 1985 thanks to Leona and Leroy David, who wanted to honor their father, Clarence David, who had a collection of 150 clowns in his house.
When customers discovered the Clown Motel, they started donating their stickers, making the place bigger and bigger.
Reservation costs for one night at the Clown Motel start at $130; however, this price varies depending on the day and the season.
For example, on Halloween, the place is very crowded, so those who want to experience a real Halloween night in this place must book in advance.
