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

If you want to take a rest after a long journey and don't look for anything special, this is a good place. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Close to main highway and to the main attraction of Williamsburg. AC worked correctly so the summer night wasn't too hot. With friends we had a nice night there.

This is an older "strip motel" place. Decor from the 1970s. But reasonably cared for (my wife is VERY picky about cleanliness) and good value for a night or so. Wouldn't necessarily plan to camp out here and see Williamsburg/Jamestown/Yorktown/Hampton Roads for a week, but it's OK as a place to sleep and shower. If you want a pool, flat-screen,... More

We booked into this motel on a mini road trip down the east coast, due to its location to the Jamestowne Settlement. Upon arrival, we were speedily checked in by a lovely old receptionist who told us of what was around. After the drive down however all we wanted to do was crash. The room was very large but had...

At first blush we weren't sure what we were getting into. At second blush we realized our mistake, but they had already charged my card. This is an 18 room strip motel that rents by the week. That said, the room was clean, the tv worked as did the free wifi, and the water was hot. If you are looking... More

For the money, I don't think you can beat the Basset Motel. The rooms are fairly small, and definitely old (I'm guessing early 60's), but they've been well maintained. The gentleman at the front desk is friendly, and met every request I had (extra towels, etc). You should be advised that the motel is right across the street from a... More

It was good for the price, but we happened to come at the time where they were replacing their water heater. They did replace it, but still no hot water in the shower. I could have asked maybe for a discount because of that, but they were so nice, I didn't do it. The walls were very thin and we... More

THis is a very small motel, less than 1 mile from the Historic Area of Williamsburg. An easy walk. It's also a 10 minute drive to Busch Gardens. Although the room was outdated, including the pink bathroom, this motel was clean and affordable, it you just want a place to sleep. We had a fridge and a microwave, so we... More

We chose this motel based on previous reviews. This motel had better reviews than a well known franchise, Days Inn. We were glad that we went with the motel. We were pleasantly surprised to see how clean the rooms were and spacious. We checked all the beds and towels looking for something to be dirty and nothing was. Also, the... More
