If you like a vintage experience this is one for you. The hotel is close to Colonial Williamsburg and extremely quiet and roomy. The fact that the bathroom fixtures and some of the furniture has been there since the 60s adds to its charm. Each room has a small fridge and microwave and there is about 5 feet of room... More

This is a cheap motel. There's no doubt about that. The rooms are cheap and leave much to be desired. However, for a couple nights it's not terrible. The staff is alright. They give you two coupons for restaurants nearby, which was nice of them. The hotel is located pretty close to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. My boyfriend and... More

My son and I stayed there for 4 nights and I thought it was a great alternative to all the other overpriced hotels and motels in the area. Our room was always clean, the wireless internet worked flawlessly, the T.V. had more channels than we ever needed, and the staff was very friendly, each and every day. Our original plan... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bassett for a week in October. We found the room comfortable and the location was very convienient and quiet. The staff at the Bassett was very friendly and helpful. The room had a microwave and a refrigerator. We will stay here again when in the area.
