Shaan Patel – From Seedy Motel to Shark Tank
Nobody told Shaan Patel why people rented rooms by the hour at the Sky Ranch Motel, his childhood home until he was 15 years old.
But Patel knew. “At a young age, you figure out why pretty quickly,” he said.
The Sky Ranch, located on a gritty stretch of Fremont Street on Las Vegas’ east side, drew a cast of characters that included drug addicts and prostitutes. Patel was fortunate. He was not a Sky Ranch Motel guest but lived in a room there — not far from the establishment’s neon-colored sign, where a yellow half-moon shone day and night — because his parents were the owners.
