A man from Texas explained how he will spend his retirement at the Holiday Inn instead of a nursing home. Many people are afraid that they will become too old to look after their home and have to live in a nursing home. Although some people have to enter nursing homes because of their health, this viral function gives others an idea.
The post has now gone viral, with more than 110,000 shares. Terry Robison devised the ingenious pension plan. He plans to travel the world while staying comfortable and getting better service than many nursing homes can offer.

Terry explains, “No nursing home for us. We’ll be checking into a Holiday Inn! With the average cost for a nursing home care cost $ 188.00 per day, there is a better way when we get old and too feeble. I’ve already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long term stay discount and senior discount, it’s $ 59.23 per night.
Breakfast is included and some have happy hours in the afternoon. That means $ 128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in every restaurant that we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities, and specialty TV movies. In addition, they offer a spa, a swimming pool, a fitness room, a lounge and a washer dryer, etc.
Most have free toothpaste and razors and they all have free shampoo and soap. $ 5 in tips per day and you get the whole staff ready to help you. They treat you as a customer, not as a patient. A city bus stops in front of the door and seniors ride for free. The handicap bus also picks you up (if you sleep a decent sleep). To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sunday.
For another change, take the shuttle bus to the airport and eat there in one of the nice restaurants. Fly somewhere while you are at the airport. Otherwise the money keeps building up. It takes months to get to decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn takes your reservation today. And you’re not stuck in one place forever – you can go from Inn to Inn or even from city to city. Do you want to see Hawaii? They also have a Holiday Inn there.
TV broken? Light bulbs need to be replaced? Replace a mattress? No problem … They fix everything and apologize for the inconvenience. The inn offers a night guard and daily room service. The maid will check if you are okay. If not, they call an ambulance … Or the funeral director. 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. And no worries about family visits. They will always be happy to find you, and probably check in for a few days mini vacation. The grandchildren can use the swimming pool. What else can I ask for? So when I reach that golden age, I will face it with a grin. “
As you can see the post is littered with humor, but it seems like a pretty good idea! We love that he has included a photo of a vintage Holiday Inn with his post. There are more than 1,100 Holiday Inn locations, so there are plenty of places to visit. What do you think of Terry’s idea? Would you like to live at different Holiday Inns (or another hotel)?
