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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
