Hotel owner Mahesh (Mike) Patel won a new 32GB iPad 2 at the ValueXpress booth at the Asian-American Hotel Owners (AAHOA) Convention and Trade Show in Atlanta, GA last week. When we first called Mr. Patel and told him he’d won the iPad, he responded, “No, I already received the iPad that I won.” We learned that this indeed was Mike’s lucky day; earlier, he had won an iPad drawing sponsored by AAHOA. Mike went home with 2 iPads!
Mr. Patel is the owner of the Super Inn Motel located on 4200 Wesley Drive in Decatur, GA, 20 miles west of downtown Atlanta. The property has immediate access to I-20 and the I-285 loop that surrounds Atlanta. According to Mike, his motel features very friendly hotel staff and clean rooms that fit travelers on a budget. Mike noted that the property is in close proximity to McDonalds, Popeye’s Chicken and Golden Dragon Chinese; hungry guests don’t have far to travel to get a meal.
“We were thrilled that Mike was in the trade show hall when we drew his winning card,” said Jay Bhakta, who runs the Mississippi office for ValueXpress. “It was a pleasure to meet and speak with Mike and laugh about his winning 2 iPads in one day.” Over 400 cards were submitted for the ValueXpress iPad drawing, which we consider a big success.
