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

We have driven by the Clown Motel numerous times and saw that it was somewhat run down but still thought we would give it a chance. Besides, it cost about the same for us to stay at the Clown Motel for two nights as it did for one night at the previous place we stayed. Well, you get what you... More

We were visiting ghost towns all over Nevada and Tonopah, NV was on our list. As it was getting to the afternoon we decided we would get a hotel first and then do some more looking. We started seeing a lot of NO Vacancy signs, and ended up at the Clown Motel, where we got the last room at 2PM... More

We were planning a trip to Tonopah to see the Tonopah Historic Mining Park and ran across the Clown Motel and knew we had to stay there. (Also, don't miss the Mining Park, it's incredible.) Check the Clown before you go because the demand for rooms has been very high lately. The weekend is your best bet. We talked to... More
