Iconic “Clown Motel” For Sale! You Can Buy This Clown Motel! It’s Near A Haunted Cemetary!

You Can Buy A Clown Motel!

You want to own your own business? Well, why not this amazing “clown motel” in Tonopah Nevada! Reports list the asking price as $900,000 – let’s go!

ABC7 in Los Angeles reports:

“A clown-themed motel next to a reportedly haunted cemetery is going up for sale in rural Nevada, with the owner insisting the 600 clown figurines, mannequins and paintings, and his employees, get to stay.

After 22 years, the Clown Motel owner Bob Perchetti says it is time to find someone else to look after the clown figurines, mannequins and paintings spread throughout the building in Tonopah, about 250 miles northwest of Las Vegas.”

So, less than four hours away from Las Vegas, and you have all of this inside!

ABC7 continues:

“Perchetti said he hopes to sell the motel in a month, but he is insistent the clowns stay.

“I’m not going to let them change the clown motif,” he said. “That’s going to be part of the contract.”

The motel was built around 1985 by siblings Leona and LeRoy David, Perchetti said. LeRoy David already owned the L and L Motel in town, but wanted to build another next to the cemetery where his father was buried.

The two thought it was the perfect place to house their small clown collection.”

Yep, it sits close to the town’s cemetery, and there have been reports that spirits have been seen in the area!

If you are interested, you can read the entire story here – it would be a blast to have such a kitschy place to call home, right?

  3. Like Kim, my wife is very scared of clowns. She would sooner sleep in the car, than stay one night here. It would be a great set for a horror film though.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Nope! Absolutely not! I’ve always hated clowns, even before I was introduced to Stephen King’s Pennywise. *Shiver* I’m getting goosebumps just looking at the pictures. And now I have to go to bed. If I have nightmares, it’s going to be your fault John!😁
