What more could one want? Clowns and an old graveyard? Quiet and friendly. Bob the owner is a gentleman. At the price the rating is excellent. Otherwise, average. If you have a phobia of clowns, that is, clown figurines in the lobby, clown paintings over the beds and if the thought of clowns does not remind you of that funniest... More

The unique motif for this motel was the most appealing part of the place. A lot of work has been done to keep this place presentable, but it still needs some improvements. Otherwise the room was clean and I had a good night's sleep. The people were very friendly and communicative. Recommended cheap place to stay. Right on the main... More

I heard about this place and had to seek it out while I was on a business trip in Santa Monica. Yes, it was a 7 hour drive but that was part of the fun. I arrived after dark and a nice lady in the office checked me in. Loved seeing the clown collection they have on display. It's creepy... More

This place is a hoot! It's painted bright blue and has a clown motif throughout. The room I had was huge, one of the largest my entire two-month bike trip of the western states. The room was clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I stayed two nights and found the motel and its guests to be full of local flavor. The... More

I chose this motel on a lark, but I would stay again if I'm in the area. After a 600 mile day on two lanes, I was really ready to crash. I had made a reservation for this motel several months previously and confirmed two weeks previously. When I arrived, the owner obviously had been waiting for me. Check in... More

I have to admit the room is very clean BUT there is plywood covering a hole in the bathroom, some type of duct tape to keep the furniture from peeling, the rug needs to be stretched, one wall needs a coat of paint, etc. The only thing keeps this place from getting a terrible rating is the theme of this...

If you need a place to sleep in Tonopah, then do consider the Clown Motel. The room is large and clean but definitely needs some attention, i.e., there were large pieces of plywood over holes in wall (I'm assuming there was a water leak in the shower at some point) and a coat of paint would not hurt. That said,... More

Haunted, well our room was not, but others say it is. It is a place to sleep. Not horrible. Clean, it seemed. Old and could use paint an such, but 35 bucks for 2 people is hard to argue with if you are passing through. There is a cemetery next door, yes, and clowns everywhere from the lobby to the... More

If you have a clown phobia, this place is not for you! It is an older motel, but our room was absolutely spotless, and the bed very comfy. There are no amenities--hair dryer, in-room coffee maker, clock...but for $40-something, it's a deal. The folks who run the motel are super nice, and there's early (7am) coffee in the lobby. We...

This is NOT a B & B as listed on tripadvisor. It is a basic inexpensive motel. The rooms look older on the inside than on the outside, but they are generally clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. For the price it is acceptable. The carpets are worn, walls and woodwork is dirty. There is NO breakfast. This property... More
