The Rancho Bernardo Inn & Spa Offers $19 Room—minus bed
SAN DIEGO—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 and it typically charges more than $200 a room.
But business is down. So from Aug. 16 to 31, guests can pay for a “Survivor Package” that charges them less money each time they give up an amenity.
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 be sure to bring your own toilet paper.
The inn’s general manager, John Gates, says the hotel hopes people who try the unusual promotion will like the place and come back later at full price.
