I think this hotel constitutes very basic tourist fare. Basic room and bathroom with outdated and chintzy decor. There is nothing particularly awful about it save the meal they served our tour group and the fact that you are in Mestre and not in Venice itself. But it has several things going against it from a purely personal standpoint that I have not factored into my overall experience rating.
One: I had to share a room with a snorer.
Two: First night I was rested enough from transatlantic to critically judge the bed and being a rather typical motel bed, there was plenty to be critical of.
Three: To deal with the snoring, I chose to move the mattress and sheets out onto the odd, sunken balcony (top floor rooms only I think) for the night and was eaten alive by mosquitos.
Four: You probably won't have to eat it if you aren't on a tour, but that food really was awful, especially in light of some of the experiences we had later on in both Venice and the rest of Italy.
