Pennywise the Clown in your room.

The Clown Motel

Stayed in the Stephen King IT Room #108. This motel is clown-decorated from top to bottom, inside and out. The IT room has a large painting of Pennywise, and other small clown pix. The motel is old but clean -- no carpet, was a dream to walk into. Linoleum-type floor kept it clean. Direct TV provided ample viewing choices. Enjoy if you decide to visit Tonopah, Nevada.

A bonus for us ... the Tonapah Town Cemetery is next door.

Clown Motel room.

The Clown Motel

Loved this place! A must-see if you are nearby, or just driving through town. The new owner, VJ, is so nice, and very proud of his establishment. We even got to tour two rooms, one of them being a haunted one. We will definitely be coming back to stay the night! And we'll be bringing a clown to add to his collection!

The Clown Motel is just as creepy as it sounds. It's also next to an old cemetery, so there's that.

Savor the Clown Motel. Travelers who only stop to snap sign pics don't know what they're missing.
