train station confusion

I've booked the overnight train from Gijon to Barcelona.

The renfe site and the ticket say the station is Gijon-Cer. All attempts to search for stations tell me 'Cercanias' means local trains and this is obviously not.

Are these station(s) all close together/same place? or are they scattered about town? How hard will it be to find the right place to take my train?

Are there lockers or a left luggage facility at Gijon-Cer or other train station or close by?

I will also be turning in a rental car (haven't picked company yet) what should I know about that? Luggage question is because I might want to turn in car a few - several hours before my train and will have left hotel in early morning.

As far as I know there is only one Renfe station in Gijon. Apparently you will be boarding the TREN HOTEL at the Gijon-Cercanias station at 8:48 pm. It's a commuter rail service that takes you Oviedo to catch the Tren Hotel.

Yes there is only one train station, Cercanias trains leave from there as well as normal trains.

From memory I think there are luggage lockers there...
