My wife and I were aware of the distance from Venice prior to booking, which was easily accessible by bus (35 minute bus ride). The hotel staff were friendly, and the room appeared to be clean.
The bathroom itself was clean, albeit the shower was pretty small. Our room had a loft that had a sitting area and an armoir, which we never used, because we spent our days in Venice. The morning breakfast was 99% bread products, with yogurt and some canned fruit.
The biggest downside to this hotel is the distance from Venice, as you can't easily hop on a bus to and from the hotel, because the buses run every 30 minutes, and it would take up a large portion of your day to travel to and from Venice. However, we quickly learned that Venice does not have the nightlife that all of our previous stops had (Florence, Rome, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete), so leaving at 10pm didn't mean you were missing much. We stayed until midnight on our first night and found the Venice was incredibly quiet at that time.
If we were to return to Venice, we would consider this hotel, but I think we would look for closer options first. That being said, we found the Mira to be quite a nice little community, and wish we had some extra time to explore that area as well, because it was quite picturesque.
