Luggage and back issues

Arriving 21:10, Treviso, getting Ryanair bus to Mestre - P.Roma. Need to fetch keys from hotel near S. Lucia station, for B&B which is in Dorsoduro. Bearing in mind that one of us has serious back issues, and it will be quite late at night, which option should we choose:

1) Get off at P.Roma, one of us goes to fetch the keys, while the other two wait at the bus station, then we lug suitcases over Tre Ponti to the b&b. Departing Venice from S. Lucia, so would need to get our luggage over the Grand Canal then

2) Get off at Mestre, get a train to S.Lucia (but may encounter stairs under train tracks), & leave bulk of luggage at the storage there (cost about 25 euro). Collect keys, walk over G Canal with hand luggage to the b&b, and when we leave Venice, our big suitcases will be on the right side of the Grand Canal

Google maps is showing a Bar Filovia just to the left of Ponta della Constiuzione, before the vaporetto stop. Does anyone know if it is still there? That looks like an ideal place to wait.

If I understand correctly which one it is, it can be reached with a ramp, but there is no place to sit, and in case of bad weather, there is no place to stay covered for long as there is very little room inside, even for standing.

This might be a silly question, but does anyone know where the Ryanair bus from Treviso actually stops? The whole P.Roma area looks huge on google maps.
