During my first visit to this part of California for a convention, a friend recommended the Ayres Inn Corona East. I/we were thoroughly happy with the experience. The Ayres is not too big so as to be overwhelming, yet elegant and well maintained. The front desk staff was personable, as was everyone we ran across. The have a hot buffet breakfast as part of the room rate, which includes waffles made to order. It was also in a very convenient area, behind a shopping area and with easy access to freeways.
I would definitely stay here again if in the area and recomend to friends.
