An older man decided to spend his twilight years in a hotel because it was more cost-effective than staying in a nursing home.


After many years of work and a stressful schedule, many seniors look forward to a fulfilling retirement.

Some consider retirement communities or nursing homes, but the associated expenses could pose a problem.

However, Terry Robinson, a 60-year-old American, made an extraordinary decision: he chose to live in a hotel!

Terry rented a room at the Holiday Inn and took advantage of long-term stay offers as well as senior discounts, which included breakfast and discounted drinks during happy hour.

By choosing this option, Terry was able to save more than half the cost compared to a nursing home, spending only $60 a day at the hotel.

In addition to a comfortable room, he also had a budget for meals and laundry expenses.

Furthermore, Terry had access to the hotel’s amenities such as a swimming pool, a gym, and a sauna.

The hotel also provided basic items like shampoo and toothpaste and offered room cleaning services.

With the help of a small tip, he had a team available to assist him, treating him as a valued guest rather than a patient.

Terry also took care of his health, and the hotel had an ambulance or funeral home available in case of emergencies. The costs were covered by his health insurance.

Perhaps with some luck, he could even get an upgrade to a suite.

Since the hotel was near a free senior bus line, Terry could travel easily, and his family could visit the hotel or even vacation there.
