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 Although the room was outdated, including the pink bathroom, this motel was clean and affordable, it you just want a place to sleep.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

The Basset Motel was nothing fancy , fairly thin wall, but was the least expensive around. We stayed there 3 nights extending night after night. Not a high end place, no coffee or bkfst, but a 5 min walk or drive to all. It's and older one story, park in front but the room was clean in all aspects with... More

Good value. All we wanted was clean room and hot shower and that's what we got. If you want bells and whistles don't go here. It was easy to find and handy to the sites to be seen at Williamsburg . Another good point is out front of your room parking which is free.
