Spring, Texas, resident Terry Robison, 64, worked out a detailed comparison between the two options, and the mid-priced hotel chain appeared to win out by a landslide.

Mr Robison said in a lengthy Facebook post that the average cost of a nursing home per day is $188 ($AU263), and suggested there is a "better way when we get old and too feeble". "For a combined long-term stay discount and senior discount, it's $59.23 per night", he said. With the savings, he said he will be left with over $120 for lunch and dinner, or room service, laundry, gratuities for hotel staff, and special TV movies.

The price would include breakfast, a spa, swimming pool, workout room, and free toiletries. An additional $5 a day in tips will "have the entire staff scrambling to help you" as well, he wrote.

Well, Robison says a city bus out front can bring you just about anywhere. If he wants a change of scenery, he can stay at a Holiday Inn in another city. "You can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city", he wrote.

A man plans to forego the nursing home. Tery Robinson, of Spring, Texas took to Facebook to say he and his wife will be checking into a Holiday Inn instead of a nursing home to live out their "golden years".

And the maintenance is virtually nonexistent, Robison figured.

'TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? That's not a problem either, he says.

He also suggested family and friends won't dread visits with the holiday lifestyle on offer for all. Or the undertaker. If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life'.

A representative for InterContinental Hotels Group, which Holiday Inn is a subsidiary of, did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.
