We just returned from a three-day "staycation" in Ramona, Calif. We stayed at the San Vicente Resort, and I was impressed with what a great deal this lodge is. All the rooms have a balcony overlooking the beautiful golf course. The resort also has lighted tennis courts and an Olympic-size pool. It's a short drive to the Barona Casino and numerous antique shops. We got a AAA rate of less than $80 a night, which includes a $4-per-person (up to two people) daily discount at the on-site restaurant.
