It is true that it is in an industrial area - but the hotel is nice, inside and out. Breakfast is OK. Reception staff were pleasant and spoke good English. It was nice sitting on the patio outside the hotel drinking a beer on a warm evening - but beware of the mosquitos? (or midges).
I found it very convenient for getting into Venice by bus - and fairly easy getting back (No 6 bus followed by a 10minute walk). However we did have problems getting to the hotel from Mestre in the evening. It was not easy finding the bus stop (or was that just us?). If you find the No 10 stop it will take you to the hotel - but I think the last bus is about 9.40pm. On 2 evenings we walked from Mestre Railway Station - and it takes about 1 hour (past a lot of prostitutes). However ignore previous comments in that there were no prostitutes anywhere near the hotel.
If you travel by Ryanair it is very simple getting the bus from the airport to Mestre R/way Stn (they even sell the bus tickets on the plane). (7 euros/single). When we returned we took the train from Venice to Treviso (2.85 euros) and bus from there to the airport (1.20 euros - get the tickets from tobacconists).
If like me you like travelling on boats get a period ticket on the Vaporettos (30 euros for 48 hours). We spent hours travelling around the outside of the main island - and to the various islands. The ticket includes travel on the local buses of course.
