During Aqua Marine's heyday under Roberts, it had 250 employees,
a $600,000 payroll, attracted visitors from all over the United States and
Canada and was touted as the ''most glamorous thing to ever hit Avon Lake.''
Roberts sold Aqua Marine to Arizona-based Ramada Inn in December 1968 for $6 million.
The sale was approved by more than 96 percent of Aqua Marine's shareholders,
according to a shareholder who attended the meeting.
During this time, it became known as Aqua Marine-Ramada Inn.
Aqua Marine also saw new owners in August 1985, when partners
Rex Davis of Dayton and Jackson Tsang of Los Angeles bought it for
about $6 million, according to a story in The Morning Journal.
In October 1986, partners William Duffy and Arthur Ziegler Jr. of Pittsburgh
purchased Aqua Marine for $7 million and expanded the resort to include
more rooms to cater to people seeking getaway weekends.
In 1990, William Ellis, an Atlanta-based entrepreneur, purchased Aqua Marine
for an undisclosed sum and restored the resort's original sea horse emblem
to its marquee and installed a fountain in one lake.
Maharishi bought Aqua Marine in 1993.
However, Aqua Marine never fully returned to the splendor it
was remembered for, Councilman Stanek said.
''That place was a real jewel at one time,'' Stanek said.
