The motel gained notoriety from its theme eerily coupled with its proximity to the historic mining town of Tonopah’s cemetery.
"As you know, it's called the scariest motel in the U.S.," Perchetti told KLAS.
Perchetti and his late business partner decided on the clown theme. They brought in most of the props from his home.
“He had a house full of clowns, and he decided to bring the clowns up and put them to work,” Perchetti said.
He is hoping to sell the motel, clowns included, for $900,000.
“Oh, I’m going to miss the clowns,” Perchetti said. “I’m going to come back. I’m going to come back and visit my clowns.”
What will Perchetti do once someone else is there to look after the clowns?
"I'm going to go fishing. I want to go enjoy myself," Perchetti told KLAS. "I'm going to do a little camping with the grandkids."
