I would suggest you search trip advisor .
The best way to see Venice is on foot
Do not visit in the summer months . ( standing room only , highest prices , smell of sewerage, too hot )

Unless you are visiting on a bargain city break and staying In Venice or have free transfers from your hotel arrange your own accommodation.
The closest place to stay is on a budget is the Italian Riviera to the East of Venice , from here can get a vaporetto service from the Western end of the peninsula direct to St. Marks Square.
Check out the cost of the city pass and the passes on the vaporetto as this will be the best option as it nay also include buses from your hotel to the dock
The cost of drinks and food varies from approx. £10 for a small coffee outside on St Marks Square to £2 for the same in the side street cafes standing at the bar 400 m away

and for how long do you plan to stay there? the most popular sights are Canal Grande, Basilica di San Marco, St. Mark's Square and Palazzo Ducale, if you like such things

We stayed in Mestre. There are several hotels right across from the train station. We then took the train right into Venice. The train runs pretty late so we were able to spend a lot of time there. We found that two full days was enough for us. The first day we just go off the train and head into town. It was fun just wondering around and discovering things. The next day we got an all day pass for the water bus. Headed out to Murano to check out the glass factories. Honestly I would skip it unless you are interested in glass blowing. We then headed back and did the trip down the main channel checking out the usual tourist places.
