After Bharat Patel came to the United States in 1984, he toiled for 12 years as a dishwasher, a maintenance worker and a researcher at a solar panel firm. All the while Patel was saving money, building a nest egg that he would eventually invest in 1996, with family and friends, into two motels in State Line, Pa., where he has prospered.
