On the side of the Main Street of Tonopah in Nevada lies Clown Motel right next to the Old Tonopah Cemetery. This hotel owes its name to the central theme of the hotel – Clowns. Leona and Leroy David built this hotel in 1985. Their father was a clown collector, and his body was buried in the cemetery next door. With over 2,050 small and large clowns throughout the hotel, this place is definitely going to test your courage, especially if you have coulrophobia – fear of clowns. If that was not enough, their 31 rooms have spooky murals and according to them, what happens after the night falls is out of their hands. Sounds promising!
If paranormal activities give you an adrenaline rush, then you are at the right place.
