The Victoria Express Hotel is like a museum - the lobby is huge, somewhat austere, very clean and very quiet. The decorations are sparse. A little bit of Mexican art, but not much else. Mostly white walls with nothing on them at all. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Beds a bit hard and pillows too tall for me to sleep on comfortably. The air conditioner worked great. The shower was huge (but is not behind closed doors, so that takes getting used to...the glass door steams up and give you privacy), the hot water plenty. No bugs. Very large thick towels, and the maid left extras when we asked (for the pool). Note: The front desk does not sell stamps and there is no gift shop in the hotel - they do speak English and are very friendly.
Our favorite part of the hotel was the gorgeous covered, blue-tiled pool outside, with hot tub. The pool is four feet deep all the way around.
Meals in the restaurant are EXCELLENT (try the huevos championes - omelette with mushrooms). Bring your Spanish phrase book - none of the restaurant staff spoke English. You can charge meals to your room and pay when you check out.
There is a small gym and a business center.
I think getting around from here by taxi would be the way to go. It did not look close to anything a tourist would want to do. (We were in Mexico to do charity work, and were picked up each day by a van driven by the charity staff.)
Remember that tipping the housekeeper is expected daily if you think you got good service!
