A 64-year-old resident of Spring, Texas, challenged the idea that a retirement home is his only option. So he compared the cost of living in one to the cost of living in a hotel. The latter won, and he boasts about spending the rest of his life at Holiday Inn.
A man on the brink of retirement found an alternative way to live out his “golden” years: by spending them in a Holiday Inn rather than a retirement home. Spring, Texas, resident Terry Robison, 64, worked out a detailed comparison between the two options, and the mid-priced hotel chain appeared to win out by a landslide.
