The check in process was fast and friendly. The hotel is older, and doesn't have many frills (e.g. hairdryer, products, coffee maker, etc.), but it's VERY clean and it does have a fridge and microwave. The beds had soft sheets and were very comfy. The room we were in was very quiet since it was in the back of the... More

Just a bed. Tv didn't work. Bug body on one bed. AC hard to control. Quite rundown overall. Not the most secure. It was just Ok as a place to sleep, with one eye open. The price for this location may override the concerns so, it's up to each individual need.

We really liked this motel. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean, location is VERY convenient and in a safe area. The room microwave and fridge are the icing on the cake for such an amazing price. My advice to Williamsburg travelers on a budget? Stay at this lovely motel, and spend your money at the local attractions and restaurants... More

We wanted to stay in a motel en route from the coast to the mountains and this did the job for us. It was cheap and, therefore, basic. The staff were friendly and helpful, the location is not in the centre of Williamsburg so it was quiet. There was a shopping mall nearby where we were able to buy food... More

I'm on a tight budget and booked a night here. You get double the quality considering the price. Very clean! And every person from the staff I came in contact with was very polite and sweet! I have another visit to Williamsburg coming soon and will certainly stay here again.

We stayed at the Bassett Motel this weekend based on the positive reviews. It didn't disappoint. I do appreciate the prior reviews saying to bring a hair dryer. Overall, it was a quiet, comfortable experience. The low water pressure does require some patience, but again, from the reviews I was expecting that. It is a solid no frills option for... More

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.
