My wife and I have stayed at the Bassett many times, usually as a quick in and out for Busch Gardens where we go nearly every other week. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds are excellent, showers are hot and the wifi is hard to beat. Always priced right as well and the desk clerk is always nice!

Most hotels in the area were booked but found a cheap motel minutes from Busch Gardens. You get what you pay for, so don't expect a Hampton Inn type experience, but the rooms were clean and the staff very pleasant. Older furniture and decor but perfect for a quick in and out overnight trip.

We had the opportunity to stay at this motel while in Williamsburg for a Family Reunion. We booked this room based upon the reviews we saw and are not at all disappointed. The room was large, clean, and exceeded our expectations. The housekeeper offered us additional towels and asked if we needed anything else. Who appeared to be the owner... More

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

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

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
