This property certainly has seen its better days. You don't stay here for luxury. You stay because it is what it is, because of the Clown's theme, and because it's next to an amazingly historic cemetery. Oh yeah, both the motel and the cemetery have reported paranormal activity. The rooms are clean, but well worn. The bed was comfortable, but...

You can't beat $49 a night. The hotel was a great price, and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. I was thoroughly aggravated that this hotel was just featured on Ghost adventures, and the staff had no knowledge of it. The working staff had no knowledge of the cemetery they are build next to, or of the Belmont mine...

Very good value rooms are dated but bed was comfy & room was clean. If you're expecting the ritz. It's not for you but has wifi too. In an area where we'd had no signal for hours. Staff very friendly. Would stay again.

So we stopped in town with nowhere to stay, my Mum said under no circumstances are we staying at "The Clown Motel" Well at $30 a night, we ended up there. I walked into the reception, if you're not scared of clowns, you will be after a visit in here. The guy behind the desk was lovely, they only had...

It was clean, it was recently bought so they were talking renovations, it was a very old building but pleasant. There was also a graveyard close by so it would be a great place for paranormal investigators, there was nothing scary to me about it.

I really didn't want to stay here but my friends insisted. The rooms are actually OK and don't have too much clown memorabilia in them. The beds were clean and it was the best priced hotel in Tonopah. A good stop before Vegas.

I am not a fan of clowns and whenever we have passed through Tonopah, just seeing the motel freaked me out. Well, last night, on our way home from a 5 week tenting trip, we decided to stay a night here. It is run down, and does need updating, but it is a different experience. Marlena was very nice when...

I was travelling alone and I think my friends all thought I was bonkers but clowns don't bother me at all. The staff were really friendly and helpful so couldn't rate them higher. Rooms are grim but that's what you expect really and it's somewhere I will always remember that's for sure!
