— A Houston man says living in a Holiday Inn is cheaper – and better -- than moving into a nursing home.

“With the average cost for a nursing home care costing $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,” Terry Robison wrote in a viral Facebook post.

Robison added that the Holiday Inn also features a pool, a spa, a workout room and a washer and dryer.

"Breakfast is included, and some have happy hours in the afternoon," Robison wrote. "That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies."

If medical care is needed, Robison wrote, "The Inn has a night security person and daily room service. The maid checks to see if you are ok. If not, they'll call an ambulance."
