KINGMAN–A prominent fixture in Kingman has closed its doors for good.
Ramada Kingman and Canyon 66 were under the management of California-based real estate developer’s Joel and Noble Zubaid.
The brother’s, along with Noble Zubaid’s wife, Sarwat, purchased the Ramada Kingman in 2014 for a little under a million and renovations reportedly began immediately to give the hotel a new look. Shortly after though, renovations were halted after contractors reportedly weren’t being paid. Documents show multiple loans were taken out for the renovations, which were said to include a helicopter pad.
The property went into foreclosure in 2016 and additional loans were reportedly taken out once again in an attempt to prevent the closure of the property. However, after the Zubaid’s filed bankruptcy in February the doors to the Ramada Kingman were closed for good.
A front desk manager for the hotel voiced his upset after the closure.
“The hotel and restaurant were making good money,” he said. “But they couldn’t pay our checks on time.”
