Funky, cheap, no ice machine, but clean and it is right next door to the not-to-miss Tonopah cemetary. They are rumored to have the biggest collection of porcelain clowns in the world. Not for the luxury traveler, but if you want a clean bed at a cheap price and stories to tell afterwards, this is your place.
Another no-miss in Tonopah is the old dump where they dumped all the trash when they leveled the bordellos--word is that once the matresses decayed, they found gold coins that had been stashed there. For the junk-collector or mixed media artists, some treasures can still be found. I found an old typewriter, rusted and corroded but still intact, old bottles. Would have liked to have spent all day there. The cemetary is another place to spend an hour or two, and if your traveling companions are not interested, they can sleep-in at the Clown motel next door as you go exploring. Take your camera. Google the story of why so many of the graves bear the same date--well, year at least. A mystery!
