"I'm connected with the business 24/7, and I'm connected with my family 24/7," says Apurva Thakkar, new owner of the Super 8 Motel in Perham.


He's not exaggerating about the 24/7, either. With his living quarters located right in the back of the motel complex, he's never more than a hallway away from what is going on in the motel. And, when it comes to family, he's happy to share the motel's apartment with not only his wife and son, but his mother and father as well.
