Via de La Plata spa has steam and dry spa as well as wonderfully rejuvenating water spa and very reasonable rates for an indulgence (and a fine pilgrim menu at their restaurant in the main square).

Stayed at Hotel Gaudi. Was well located and clean, if not fancy or new. View was amazing out our room.

Hi jkberry - Hotel Astur Plaza is lovely. I stayed there on two separate occasions. Clean, spacious rooms and very friendly staff everywhere - from the front desk to the wait staff in the huge breakfast room. Ask for the pilgrim discount. If you take the deal with breakfast included you will not be disappointed - the breakfast buffet is generous and delicious - lots of options for nutritious foods to help you get over your cold.
Best wishes for an early recovery and Buen Camino -
Jenny
PS - the staff in the pharmacy on the opposite side of the square are very kind and helpful - if you need to restock your cold/flu medications.

When suffering from a heavy cold, you need something more healthy than Cocido Maragato!

If you can afford it - this would be my suggestion too. It is amazing - the "SPA" is well worth the 25 Euro if it is in your budget. Very close to the main square and a wonderful chocolate place.

seems that two persons at the Corona ran a scam on the OP. That might make it, if true, a poor place to ask for help.
Maybe, maybe not: for now that is just speculation.
Please let's wait for the situation to get clearer before we cast aspersions.

Update: It turns out Hotel Coruna is just fine. Most likely better than fine:
Things are working out. The Hotel Coruna is NOT run by criminals, bank transfers take days to arrive, and the OP is on her way to a cozy safe place in Castrillo de los Polvozares.

Hotel Astur Plaza is great place to stay. Buffet breakfast was great,
Not just sugary stuff to start your day. Orange juice was superb, never
tasted OJ like that before.
Hope, you will feel better soon.
Cathy.
