The Clown Motel!!! Tried to stay there back in January of 2000. We had driven up to Beatty, through the Owens Valley, to Mammoth, Carson City and Virginia City for a few days. On the way back to LV, we didn't feel like driving straight through so we figured we'd overnight in Tonopah.
Who knew there was some kind of "wrestling festival" or whatever in town? I wanted to stay at The Clown Motel just BECAUSE it was called The Clown Motel. But sadly there was no room at the inn. We had to settle for The Sundowner Motel (it wasn't upgraded as it is today; it was the original one - and by "original" I mean everything in the room hailed from when it was originally built LOL).
Won't do that again any time soon though it was fun :) Glad they got the ad; it IS a cute little town.
