Luxury resort offers $19 room - minus bed

The Rancho Bernardo Inn boasts three pools, a spa and golf course. It typically charges more than $200 a room.

A luxury resort in San Diego is offering rooms for $19 a night - if you don't mind sleeping in a tent. The Rancho Bernardo Inn boasts three pools, a spa and golf course. It typically charges more than $200 a room. But business is down. So from August 16 to 31, guests can get a "Survivor Package" that charges them less for each amenity they give up, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. For $19, guests give up breakfast, air conditioning, lights, sheets and even the bed. Staff will remove the mattress and headboard and leave a small tent instead. Oh, and bring your own toilet paper. General manager John Gates said the hotel hopes people who try the promotion will return at full price.
