Actually being able to fall asleep in your hotel room is, like, so overrated, right? That must've been the idea behind the iconic Clown Motel in Tonopah, NV (aka our worst nightmare come true). No, this place isn't the set of a horror film; it's an actual motel you can stay in overnight, and it looks pretty darn terrifying, if you ask us.
The Clown Motel has been a Tonopah staple for more than 20 years and first began garnering media buzz back in 2017 when it was put up for sale. Now that the building has been totally renovated by a new owner, it's seemingly drawing a fresh wave of courageous tourists who are brave enough to lay their heads down while surrounded by creepy, permanently smiling clowns. The motel is conveniently situated right next to Tonopah's first cemetery (because of course it is), and its lobby houses a collection of more than 2,000 clown figurines of varying sizes. To top it off, there are now rooms inspired by popular horror movies, like It, Friday the 13th, Halloween, and The Exorcist.
To see why the establishment has been named "America's Creepiest Hotel," keep reading to take a gander at the eerie yet intriguing destination.
