The alberge in Santa Marta de Tera was full so this was a fine option if you do not want to walk 12 km more to the next town.
Room fine. Pay 33 euro for a single room with menu del dia and breakfast. Nice restaurant and good food!
If you decide to detour to here to stay in the hotel, you can basically follow the highway from Santa Marta and shave off a few kilometers. There are dirt roads that parallel the highway the first couple of kilometers so you can stay off highway until the last 2 kilometers. Highway traffic not bad. Hotel is fine.
