Just returned from a pleasant weekend stay at the Bassett Motel in Williamsburg. The motel is a vestige of the independently owned Motor Courts that proliferated Williamsburg years ago. My initial selection was based on its location close to a conference center where the Virginia Harley Owners Group Rally was being held, and positive comments in Trip Advisor. The room... More

I went to Williamsburg for a golf tournament, and wanted a comfortable place thats a good value. Saw the good reviews for Bassett Motel, and am glad I stayed there. Convenient to many good restaurants and sites -- just a short drive. Room was roomy with comfortable beds. Tube TV was fine. Wi-Fi was excellent! Employess were very friendly and... More

Pros: + easy to find in a convenient location + clean and well maintained + friendly staff + beds are basic, but comfy + double plus cheap + good free wifi Cons: - shower is not very hot nor...

The Bassett Motel is just a simple place to sleep, close to the Williamsburg, VA attractions. The price is great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The manager is friendly and accomodating. No, there are no special amenities like a pool or a free breakfast. You should know that there is a railroad right across the street, in case you... More

This was a VERY reasonably priced motel in Williamsburg. We spent most of our time sight-seeing and very little time in the room. There was plenty of space and the room was clean. The decor was nothing special but we did appreciate the refrigerator in the room. The neighborhood was a little noisy at times. The location was good for... More

This is one of the closest places to stay near Busch Gardens. While it doesn't have HDTV nor ice machines, it does have a lot going for it. There are mini-fridges in the rooms and they are the big ones that hold 2 ltr sodas, not the little cubes that hold maybe a few 16 oz drinks. The room was... More

I book this place based on mostly positive reviews. My daughter & I were planning a weekend of amusement parks, shopping & relaxation. Driving up to the motel I should of known to run in the other direction. We had to change rooms due to the smoke smell & the next room was not much better. After being in the... More

Is a good place to rest, clean and the front desk is very helpfull. Also this motel is very close to Bush Gardens and a lot of places to eat. I'm glad that have free wi fi and free parking in front of your room. I will stay again on this motel next time when visiting Bush Gardens Europe again!

I give this motel above average because it is affordable. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable stay without spending a lot of money, this is a great place. We stayed one night. Slept like babies. The bed was comfortable, no noise, and in the morning it was all full. There was no vacancy. Older but very comfortable. It... More

Could do with a serious update. Needs repainting and new bathrooms. But bottom line, we didn't feel safe. There was a lot of coming and going all night outside our room and loud talking which made it difficult to sleep and we had no idea what was going on, and we certainly weren't going outside to find out! I'd give... More
