You Can Stay In A Clown Motel, Next To An Actual Cemetery And It’s So CREEPY


The Clown Motel in Nevada was built in 1985 by an avid clown collector who was buried in the cemetery right next door. YouTuber Brent Rivera stayed in the Clown Motel for 24 hours.

In Nevada lies the Clown Motel right next to the Old Tonopah Cemetery. This hotel owes its name to the central theme of the hotel – Clowns. And it’s all kinds of creepy. Leroy and Leona David built this hotel in 1985. Their father was an avid clown collector, and his body was buried in the cemetery next door.

With over 2500 smaller and large clowns throughout the hotel, this place is definitely going to test your braveness, especially if you have coulrophobia – fear of clowns. If that’s not enough, their 31 rooms have incredibly spooky murals and according to them, what happens after the night falls is nothing to do with them and they absolutely CANNOT help you.
