My family and I stayed at the Victoria Express hotel for three nights in August, 2007. The room and bathroom were of ample size, clean and odor free. The beds were comfortable and on the firm side. The bathroom was comfortable with the toilet physically separated from the shower and sink area by a door to provide extra privacy. A gift shop isn't present but the staff has a few items available at the desk. We needed and received a toothbrush and some aspirin. An iron and ironing board were available in the room. Bottled water and some toiletries were provided.
The restaurant was attractive and served delicious food at a reasonable price, at the current USD to Peso exchange rate. There was a full bar. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. I think the restaurant is the best feature of the hotel.
At the rear of the property is attractive landscaping and a covered pool and jacuzzi. I am not sure, but the temperature of the pool lead me to believe it isn't heated.
The hotel is located in a mixed business/residential district . There aren't any shopping centers in the immediate vicinity (within 1-2 blocks), or places that I would consider attractive for strolling unless you want to walk past some of the houses and apartments and the occasional small park.
However, taxis are readily available and affordable. A trip to the downtown area is about 15 minutes away and cost about 50 to 90 pesos depending on traffic and passengers (about USD $5-$9).
The staff was efficient and courteous but a little weak with their English skills.
Although we didn't use it, there is a business center with computers and a conference room. I was told by a guest that wireless internet access is available at no charge.
Overall I would say that this hotel is better suited to the business traveler than a family looking for a more resort style accomodation. I think similar accomodations in the United states would be at least USD $200- $250 per night in Southern California. I thought it was a good value.
