Planning for retirement is something that we all will have to face at some point. And as a Millennial I’m definitely not looking forward to it. But a man who’s now ready to retire has just proved that he’s an absolutely genius in solving the question of what’s the best retirement plan. Apparently, it’s the Holiday Inn.
Terry Robinson has posted that he plans on living out his golden years in one of the chain’s suits. Having done the math, it’s a genius idea given that you would be living on $59 a day, meaning that for $1800 a month, you wouldn’t have to pay for anything except food and laundry. This means that all the important bills like cable, Internet, water, trash, and homeowners/renters insurance, are all someone else’s problem. Plus, you get a daily maid and all fresh sheets and towels. How amazing does that sound?
“No nursing home for us. We’ll be checking into a Holiday Inn!
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.
Breakfast is included, and some have happy hours in the afternoon.
That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities
Plus, they provide a spa,
Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.
$5-worth of tips a day and you’ll have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
They treat you like a customer, not a patient.
There’s a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free.
The handicap bus will also pick you up (if you fake a decent limp).
To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.
For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there.
While you’re at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.
It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation
And you’re not stuck in one place forever — you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.
Want to see Hawaii ? They have Holiday Inn there too.
TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem.. They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.
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 . . . 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.
And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you, and probably check in for a few days mini-vacation.
The grand-kids can use the pool.
What more could I ask for?
So, when I reach that golden age, I’ll face it with a grin.”

And most importantly, you’ll have access to a pool and hot tube that you won’t have to maintain because again, it’s not your problem. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. I think I’ll be keeping in mind The Holiday Inn as a place to retire to, rather than spend my days eating chocolate pudding in some rancid nursing home. I think I’ll book myself into a Holiday Inn by the beach somewhere.
