The last time I was in Venice I found hotels to be really expensive.  
We wound up staying at this little place on Lido Island.  You can take 
a water bus directly to Lido from the airport.  To get to Venice you 
also take a water bus from Lido, about 10 minutes or so.  Lido is a 
small place, quiet and friendly, a good place to hide from the hustle 
and bustle of Venice. The hotel is quite small and very friendly.
