  • Man plans to ditch nursing home for Holiday Inn

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".

The Phillies are gaining momentum with the 26-year-old outfielder, and perhaps they could soon close a deal. It is February 17 and finally the Manny Machado and Bryce Harper markets are beginning to heat up.

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.
