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.

If you just need a clean and comfortable place to sleep near the Williamsburg attractions, and you want a very economical price, the Bassett Motel is the place for you. The place looks very simple, but the rooms are just fine. They have refrigerators and microwaves. If you are looking for amenities like a swimming pool or a free breakfast,... More

I've gotten great recommendations from trip advisor and thought this experience would be just as lovely as my past experiences. Boy, was I wrong. The room we got had bugs in the perimeter of the walls, our bath towels had hair in it (probably re used and unwashed), half way through my boyfriends shower their was no hot water, on... More

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

My husband and I looked at 7 other hotels before we came upon this one, they were all either dirty, run down or had very rude people working there. The owner of Bassett Motel was very nice, he gave us a great deal on staying 2 nights. The room was clean, sheets and bedspreads looked fairly new. We were very... 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
