The Scariest Hotel In America Is Right Here In Nevada

To compile our lists, we scour the internet to find properties with excellent ratings and reviews, desirable amenities, nearby attractions, and that something special that makes a destination worthy of traveling for.

There is nothing scarier than clowns, and the creepiest hotel in Nevada proves it. Pennywise, Zeebo, Twisty, Killer Klowns from Outer Space…seriously, clowns are terrifying –  and what’s even scarier? A clown-themed motel which is easily one of the scariest places in the US.

To learn more about this creepy hotel, visit the Clown Motel website or Clown Motel Facebook page.

What are some more of the scariest places in Nevada?

Besides The Clown Motel, some of the scariest places in Nevada include:

One of the largest petroglyph sites in America, Grimes Point is allegedly haunted by several different apparitions (but only on moonless nights).

Visitors to the Silver Terrace Cemeteries have reported seeing everything from glowing gravestones to full-blown apparitions standing beside the burial sites.

This park is allegedly haunted by the ghost of a young boy who was hit and killed by an intoxicated driver. He can be seen swinging in the playground after midnight - but if you get too close, he transforms into a demon.

Are there any haunted hotels in Nevada?

The Silver State has several overnight accommodations that are supposedly crawling with ghosts. Some of the most haunted hotels in Nevada are:

Opened in 1876, the Silver Queen Hotel is heaven for ghost hunting enthusiasts. Rooms 11 and 13 are especially haunted!

Guests here have made numerous reports of haunted happenings, including being grabbed by unseen hands.

Also in Virginia City, the historic Gold Hill Hotel is rife with paranormal activity - probably because in 1869, a fire killed dozens of miners in the Yellow Jacket Mine, which was right underneath the hotel. I love ghost hunting, so I'm itching to book this place as soon as possible!
