Clown Motel lets guests sleep next to a graveyard and 2,000 creepy figurines

Dive right in! Like the weather, the Daily Star’s FREE newsletter is a scorcher

If you’re more into dark tourism than Disney – this hotel could be your dream.

The Clown Motel in Tonopah, Nevada features over 800 terrifying clowns.

Both large and small, the Motel is littered with everything from tiny clown statues to life sized dolls.

There’s even a giant clown on the front of the hotel.

And, to make things worse, it’s situated right next to the town’s Wild West-style graveyard.

The Old Tonopah Cemetery is a dusty desert site filled with creepy tombstones.

The owner of the clown motel says they hear footsteps, knocking and voices from unoccupied rooms.

Hame Anand, owner of the Clown Motel, told Thrillist that: “This was how I knew that they were telling me, 'we are here, but don't worry about that”

The motel owner collects clown figures and now has more than 2,000.

He bought the hotel, near Las Vegas, and added all his creepy dolls.

Hame said: “I was scared a little bit. I couldn't sleep in my room.

“But one day I thought, 'why did I come here?’ There must be some divine power.

“They want me here to run this motel. So probably, they are not going to mess with me.”

Rooms 108, 109, 210, 215 and 217 have all been reported as the most haunted.

And, Hame has moved towards the macabre when decorating the rooms.

They’re all themed – there’s an IT room, an Exorcist room, a Halloween room and more.

However, the motel boss doesn’t see his clowns as scary at all.

He said: “I don't see why people say 'creepy"…

“The clown is the laughing character. It makes you laugh.”

There are 31 rooms available to rent – both smoking and non smoking – and they all come with a TV, fridge and microwave.

The motel, named “the world's creepiest” by many, is the final port of call before another long, unbroken scratch of Nevada desert…

So make sure you plan your trip to stay at, or avoid, the Clown Motel.
