Motel is easy to reach and in a good location for visiting Colonial Williamsburg. The price is very reasonable. The wi-fi was slow and disconnected at times. On day of our three night stay, there was a problem with the hot water, that was not shared with us, until we mentioned it at check out. Showering in December with lukewarm...

Room was only $60 so I didn't expect it to be the nicest but it was pretty and I saw a roach on the nightstand as soon as we got in. Also bathroom was pretty dirty. Wouldn't recommend unless you really can't spring for a more expensive one.

We stayed just one night before the grand illumination. It was clean, roomy and service was efficient. Bathroom and decor were dated, but since we only paid fifty bucks, that's to be expected. We also brought our 65# dog who stayed for free. There's a small grassy area in the back which was good for a dog break. Would stay...

Bassett Motel has been our go-to motel in Williamsburg for years now. We have never been disappointed. Nothing fancy, but for an affordable price in an over-priced town it is just fine. 'Frig and Microwave a plus, bathroom clean, bed comfortable, and it is quiet. We will be back in 2017 for another multi-night stay, and look forward to Room...

First thing we saw when we walked in was the security chain on the door was broken. Then we found a big dead bug on the floor. We should've looked for another hotel but it was Labor Day weekend & the hotels that had vacancies jacked up their prices and we were tired from a long drive. The room looked...

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...

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...
