Luxury resort offers $19 room _ minus bed

Submitted By AP Wire Service

SAN DIEGO (AP), Aug 08 _ 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 Aug. 16 to 31, guests can get a ``Survivor Package'' that charges them less for each amenity they give up.

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 says the hotel hopes people who try the promotion will return at full price.
