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...

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...

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.

We had the opportunity to stay at this motel while in Williamsburg for a Family Reunion. We booked this room based upon the reviews we saw and are not at all disappointed. The room was large, clean, and exceeded our expectations. The housekeeper offered us additional towels and asked if we needed anything else. Who appeared to be the owner...

Just returned from a pleasant weekend stay at the Bassett Motel in Williamsburg. The motel is a vestige of the independently owned Motor Courts that proliferated Williamsburg years ago. My initial selection was based on its location close to a conference center where the Virginia Harley Owners Group Rally was being held, and positive comments in Trip Advisor. The room...
