Our family of 4 stayed here 2 nights and selected it for its location close to the bus to Venice and ease of parking the car, etc.
The hotel is a mid-range business hotel but getting a little tired. Venice is very expensive and this hotel seems to be using those prices to justify higher than average prices for the quality of hotel.
The breakfast was ok - basic Italian fare.
Pros: Free and ample parking; free in-room Wifi; staff were helpful and made sure we had appropriate tickets for Venice visit. The bus picked us up just across the street and in 25 minutes we were on the vaporetto in Venice.
Cons: Hotel is getting tired; is in a park but the park looks more tired than the hotel (someone did landscaping once but they tired of it).
While we knew we would not be able to drive near Venice, we did not expect Mestre to be car-unfriendly and we did not have bikes - impossible to get around and the hotel was just a bit too far out of the way to get from otherwise.
Don't miss downloading Rick Steves audiotour of the Grand Canal. It was great and our whole family enjoyed both the boat trip and the commentary.
