In a now-viral Facebook post, Terry Robinson of Spring Texas (jokingly?) explains why when he and his wife get "old and too feeble," they will check into a Holiday Inn instead of spending their remaining years in a nursing home.
Bottom line, it's a better deal. From Fox8:
According to his research, the average cost for nursing home care is around $188 per day, where as if he used his senior discount for the long-term stay at the hotel chain, he'd only have to pay $59.23 per day.
He said in turn, that would leave him with $128.77 a day for food, room service, laundry, gratuities and movies.
He also pointed out that the Holiday Inn has locations all over the country, so if you get bored, you can always move to another city.
