Venice is quite walkable and compact, the map in your guidebook will show you the proximity of the sites.

www.venere.com and www.booking.com are two sites where you can look for a hotel/B&B/apt. by location, price and amenities - read the reviews!!! The star systems is different in Italy, i.e. a star for having an elevator.

Go directly to the hotel site for the best rates. I really don't suggest staying near the train station. Try Hotel Ala,i have stayed there for many years now and see no reason to change!

If you are coming by train, then staying near, and on the same side of the canal as the station, you do not have to cart your luggage over any bridges or onto a vaporetto.

Of course this is your choice, but I have stayed in that location and there are a number of acceptable hotels there. It is some distance from say St Mark's but also usually less expensive and vaporetto stops like in front of the station.
