Our room was extremely nice with antique style furnishings. Very comfortable. Lobby was also furnished in well appointed antique style sofas, chairs, bookcases, and fireplace. Had the homey feel of a library sitting room. Complimentary breakfast had many delicious menu items.
Our stay was very enjoyable and pleasant. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Corona area.

I can settle in within a few minutes and every aspect of the room is convenient and pleasant. The accommodations on every level are great! The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. I see the same people working there year year after year -- those familiar faces add to the feeling of being "at home away from home".

Older hotel with older decor. Rooms and lobby was clean. Front desk staff, for the most part were friendly, although some were not as flexible as others. Thanks to Wendy P for the late check out. We chose this hotel as it was on a list from a tournament we were attending. It was not team friendly at all. First of all, their breakfast did not open until 730a. We had 8am games 45 min away and they were not able to accommodate an early breakfast for the team. The first night we stayed one of the rooms had an industrial air purifier running all day in it. When maintenance finally came to remove it, and he admitted it should not have been left in the room all day, it had left a smell in the room. When our coaches went to sleep, they woke up within an hour not able to breathe and coughing. They were unable to stay in the room and the hotel was all sold out. The coaches had to find another hotel room. The did not get charged for the room. Oh, and the windows do not open in the rooms so airing out the room was not an option either.
The temp in the rooms was always set to very cold. When we first entered a couple of the rooms the temp was in the 60's. Despite warming it up during the night, when it was cleaned the next day it was an ice box again.
We were told that the pool closed at 10pm but the hotel allowed groups to party on the patio next to the pool until way after 10pm. They were right under our windows and we had to call the front desk twice to ask them to move somewhere else.
Also, there is a permanent resident at the hotel that made our girls a little uncomfortable. We were not told about this resident until I asked as he was following some of the girls. The front desk told me he was disabled and lived there permanently.
The check in process was a little confusing as I guess our room information was confusing to the staff. After several conversations, they figured it out.
This may be a nice hotel for older couples for small adult groups, but having traveled with sports teams for the last 5 years, I would not stay here again with a team.

Before choosing this hotel I read the reviews boasting friendly service and decided to give this location a try. Upon entering the hotel I immediately realized that I had made a costly mistake. The front desk employees were aloof and inattentive. As we were checking in the employee barely made eye contact and seemed annoyed. When she noticed I was aware of her comportment she then offered a disingenuous closing as she gave us our room key. When I visited the front desk on another occasion the employee was on the computer in the office and I asked if I may have a toothbrush and toothpaste; without a smile or a friendly gesture, she schlepped from behind the desk to get the items. When we entered our room I noticed gummy bears candy on the floor and there was pee under the toilet seat from the previous guest! I went to Wal-Mart bought gloves and Clorox wipes and re-cleaned our room! I did not report this to the staff as I believed their conduct to be unprofessional and inhospitable. I tried to make the best of our stay. Unfortunately, we needed to stay an extra night due to an unforeseen circumstance. Not only would I not recommend this hotel; I have no plans to return.

Whenever traveling to southern California, I try to stay at an Ayres Inn. Great staff, excellent rooms, and a fantastic breakfast. Location is close to Cal. Baptist and right off the 91. Plenty of good places to eat nearby and Costco gas just a few blocks away.

I was in Corona for 1 night on business, found Ayres Inn Corona East on line and booked a room. I could not have been happier with my choice. I was greeted when I arrived, the room was immaculate and very comfortable and they really had a breakfast with waffles, eggs, meat, potatoes and fruit, not the usual bread and make your own waffles. I will definitely stay there again if I am in the area and look for other Ayres when I travel.
