Pretty dire, nondescript Ibis hotel saved only by its proximity to the main motorway routes out of Spain and France. It's a stopover nothing more and not even cheap - I stupidly booked it only because I couldn't bear the prospect of a 'budget' Ibis on the way back from Spain and needed somewhere with a secure car park (secure, but you can come in any time day or night apparently just by driving up to the gate!).
Once they have you, you are imprisoned in a large industrial estate with absolutely nothing nearby - and if you've been driving all day, you won't want to get in the car again.
Staff typical of the Basque Country - in my experience at least - unfriendly and very quick to close restaurant and the bar ( I had just come from Andalucia so that might be unfair). Food distinctly average - overcooked langoustines and poor quality entrecote. Reception staff look like they double up as prison warders during the week.
If you're going to stop try a nice little hotel like the one at Arganzon de la Puebla just before you get to Vitoria - a bit more driving the next day, but a really nice place to stop over.
