We booked the room for 4 nights based on price and location but we were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant and bar. Our room was street view of the train station on the 3rd floor. There was no street noise and the room was very quiet and clean. The bathroom was very spacious and great shower. Internet access was better than we expected.
The location provided easy access to the train that took us to Venice in 10 minutes and you can get the train tickets at the front desk, it is easier and convenient.
The buffet breakfast is included in your room rate and it was great.
The bartenders we had (Morris and Moreno) were outstanding and always with a positive attitude.
We tried some of the local places to eat but could compare with the restaurant at the hotel, everything we tried there was fresh and full of flavor.
We needed a jewelry store at the last minute Saturday morning and the front desk was able to find us one within walking distance that was able to help us get an engagement ring.
We recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to this area for any reason.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher up room to avoid street noise.

We stayed in Best Western Bologna for one night. I have stayed in hotels in Mestre in the past in the late 90s so I expected not the best when I booked this place. I was surprised at how clean and updated the rooms are when I checked in. I think they did an major renovation in the last year or two because the rooms are large enough and matches up with the photos shown in the booking websites. Bathrooms are clean and modern. Hotel is in a great location because the train station to Venice and other cities in Italy is just across the street. Rooms are quite and well air conditioned. Staff were friendly and helped us with booking taxi to the Cruise Port. Good value for the money.

Chose this hotel based on other reviews & we weren't disappointed. When I booked, I asked for a high floor & quiet room & that's exactly what we got - Room 343 on the 3rd floor & the very end room, so nobody walking past & no noise from outside as it overlooked an internal courtyard with a large car park on the other side.
As Italian hotel rooms go, it was a decent size with a very large bathroom, including bath & separate shower. The air conditioning was extremely efficient & wifi signal very strong & reliable. We also had an efficient mini-bar which we used to store cold drinks purchased from the local supermarket (turn left out of the hotel & it's about 3 blocks on the same side - Ali di Piave).
Breakfast was fine - it did get busy but we never had to wait for a table.
The reception staff were brilliant - very efficient & helpful & spoke very good English. We purchased train tickets from them each day & also tickets for the airport shuttle bus which is less than 5 minutes walk - next to the train station.
The only negative was the Bistro, where we ate for the first two nights - gave them the benefit of the doubt after the first night but wish we hadn't. The waitress we had, who was also covering breakfast, was very unfriendly & had to be reminded to bring drinks. On the second night, my husband ordered beef fillet & requested it to be cooked medium to well-done but it arrived rare. My mixed fish grill was barely warm. Both meals were went back & returned 10 minutes later - the fish now cold.
On our last night, we ate in Soul Kitchen across the road which couldn't have been more different - great food, great service & much nicer atmosphere,
Overall, this hotel is an ideal base if you want to see Venice without being in the busy centre. Public transport is very cheap - €2.50 return by train to Venice - €7 for a Vaporetto ride & €6 airport shuttle. For all forms of transport, just remember to validate your ticket in the appropriate machines.

Picked this hotel primarily because we had a car and it's proximity to public transport to get to Venice itself. Parking is right onsite and the train station is right across the road. It takes roughly ten minutes to get to Venice itself and train tickets can be bought at then hotel.

Service from hotel staff was good and the room itself was adequate with out being great. Breakfast was ok as was WiFi speed. The biggest problem was the noise factor within the hotel and we struggled to get much sleep for the three nights that we stayed there which definitely soured our stay.

We spent one night here at the end of our trip. The hotel is really nice and modern inside and the rooms are huge and clean. Don't let the hotel exterior worry you. The location is great, close to the buss and train. 10min from Venice and less than 2km from Mestre old town with nice restaurants. Also the famous Moro restaurant is 2 blocks away. And public transportation even in Mestre is great. Wifi is free but a bit slow. The breakfast is average. The hotel restaurant is good for lunch/snack and also has free wifi.
There are several shuttles to the ariport just across the street and it's only 6€ per person.

instead of spending a fortune to stay in Venice, this hotel is your next best choice for stay close to venice - close meaning a quick walk across the street to the train station then 10 minutes ride into venice, then either walk 20-30 minutes to st mark's square or take the water bus to st mark's square. definitely very convenient and would save you lots of money vs hotels inside venice. hotel rooms are average in size for european standards - rooms are nicely renovated / upgraded and very nice for european standards only drawback is that there is nothing much in the neighbourhood so one would have to make the trek into venice for real food and nightlife!
