Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Un-Holiday Inn-like Hotel
I travel with my family most of the times and we as being a Priority Club members try to have nights at IHG as possible since we like the properties. We stayed in many countries and in many IHG hotels but this Holiday Inn Venice Mestre Marghera is one of the worst that I have ever seen.
The reason we chose this hotel was its location (being close to Venice) but when we arrived we saw a very fusty reception and furniture there. Later, as we reached the rooms, they were even more fustier and also dirty. The curtains and walls very really filthy and the carpet's color was changed due to dirt. Also, the design was bad and comfort was nothing compared to all other IHG hotels anywhere.
The breakfast was fair except that the coffee machine stopped working three times and I could not even got a hot coffee.
Briefly, I would not stay at this hotel again and I am very disappointed in behalf of IHG group. I will think twice hereupon staying in IHG hotels.

It is a close ride from here to the Airport, and it would be a fine place to stay for a night on layover or something, but you need a car. There is basically nothing you can walk to as the hotel is on a major traffic circle. The breakfast was mediocre. Once things were depleted, it looked like they were never refilled and the selection never changed throughout the entire stay.
The room was okay. It was clean but the bathroom shower leaked water and the room was very damp when the a/c was running. I often felt like there was mould of some sort in the room because I would cough/have breathing troubles while sleeping, which I normally do not have. Indeed, when you enter from outside the lobby has that mouldy smell.
The wifi is useless. First you have to sign up for some points membership and then the connection is terrible. It disconnects often and it is slow to upload things even on an iphone. I found the free wifi in Padova Downtown to be quicker and more reliable.
This said, the staff were wonderful. They were friendly and polite. They attended to our needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HKcommenter Expensive but comfortable
Pros: Food is excellent. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are specious, clean and comfortable.
Cons: The hotel location is not the best. If you want to take a bus to the Venice island you've got to walk for 10-15 minutes to find the bus stop. Also the fact that the hotel hasn't got a car park of its own and you should pay separately for the parking is one of the things I didn't like. Finally I think this hotel is a bit expensive, considering its location.
