April 2019. A new vision for America's Scariest Motel was born. Vijay Mehar, with lots of quality experience in the hotel industry, thought of a new venture. A venture of his own that would make a difference! The motel offers guests a new, unforgettable experience! Mehar from Las Vegas had worked as a Master Chef in 5* hotels of repute in Doha-Qatar, Australia, and Canada. With a dream to serve customers with the very best, his way, he explored, he discovered, and bought The World-Famous Clown Motel, Tonopah NV. Mehar then started building his dream around the motel with the zeal of an obsession. As a result, Mehar is continually thinking and restructuring the existing run-down motel with ideas that understand customers' needs while respecting their aspirations. He begins with giving the motel a 360-degree facelift by revamping its exteriors with a fantastic play of clown colors, polka dot with the touch of circus looks. Still, he also invented many value additions. First, he made the motel more power-packed ready to serve each guest a memorable stay. Giving an iconic touch to the creative makeovers, Mehar then characterized Jolly the clown as his new brand image. He then installed two Jolly Clown Cutouts standing tall at 19ft. each on the building. The tall clown duo stands imposingly, making the visitors and onlookers experience fun, charm, and a great deal of shock and awe that thrills anyone bang on! His creations of Themed Rooms, Exorcist, IT, the concept of Halloween, and Friday- the 13th rooms- add more spooky experience to America's Scariest Motel that screams newness in every way. His intention is for discerning customers to enjoy an experience of a lifetime! But then, Mehar's innovations didn't stop there. Driven by passion, he began work expanding the Clown Museum to make it more versatile, amusing and educative, and simply exciting, all the way! Before, the motel had a clown collection ranging around 800. Today the clown museum boasts over 5000 clowns. And the name The World-Famous Clown Motel has become not just a monument on the world map itself. The motel is evolving every day. It is the first choice for Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Investigators, Spooky Fun lovers, Youtubers, Horror Filmmakers, Clown Lovers, and more. Now when they think of a motel to experience the excitement of the unknown, The Clown Motel is their first choice. As usual, Mehar and his team are busy with their motto; keep reinventing and keep serving; while trying out a little extra to keep each customer happy and satisfied. Everyday. Everyway. Mehar's latest addition, building a Gazebo next to the historic Tonopah cemetery for ongoing tourists from the world over and guests and residents for rest, fun parties, birthdays, and wedding celebrations, is entirely in line with his mission to make his motel distinct and different. And customers are experiencing all that living the spirit and feeling the wows! Come, rediscover yourself and experience America's Scariest, The Clown Motel and enjoy the difference!
