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, then the Bassett is NOT for you. But the Bassett is a short and easy drive to historic Williamsburg or to Busch Gardens theme park. The management is very efficient. I should tell you that there is a train track across the street from the Bassett, in case train noise bothers you. I personally like the sound of trains going by.

I have stayed at the Bassett several times and each time I have been treated so kindly by the staff...first of all let me tell you a little about the motel...when you first drive up, it appears to be an older motel and you might not be impressed at first sight...but hold on a minute...CHECK OUT THE ROOMS...wow!! Spacious and clean as can be! Good TV and excellent WI-FI, and a price than CANNOT be beat..really, give it a try..you will be surprised!! I even got a phone call from the motel the evening after I checked out asking me if I was pleased with the three rooms I rented...who does that? I must say that I am impressed and WILL continue to stay at the Bassett whenever I am going to Busch Gardens!

Room Tip: I have stayed at the rooms around back...nice and quiet

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 top of that, the trains were going all night. Not a pleasant experience. Would not recommend.

The above customer has problem(internal)with his partner since they check in. We always show the room before check in and make sure everything is alright. When customer live the entry door open, definitely flying insects comes in the room and dies near window. We encourage all customer to live the door close. We have plenty of hot water, we never have compliant before.( I have checked) We ordered fresh linen supplies from Virginia linen Co(one of the best co. in Virginia) never have complaint with this supplier and we also replace the towels and linens every time when customer checked out! And about the train, we don't have control over it! My property is not on road, but all rooms are behind the office building and not that much noise like other businesses has! My property is old but well maintained you can see with all other reviews! .

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 between the ends of the beds and the furniture. Many of the rooms are rented to Asian students from College of William and Mary who only ride bikes and were never loud. There is no ice machine or hair dryer, but these are available at the front desk where a friendly owner greets you. We had a problem with a tub drain that was taken care of while we were out. The rooms are very clean, but the towels are a little rough. Bring your own toiletries as only soap is given. We also bought mugs to heat water in as there is no coffee pot. (Coffee is available at the desk.) There is no pool or workout room, but we were given a Williamsburg magazine with lots of coupons which gave us 10% off every dinner we had. I thought the room was a little musty so I used a room scent. We rented 3 rooms for 5 nights and were very pleased with our stay and at savings over other hotels.
One other Colonial Williamsburg tip-buy the souvenir mug for $10 because drinks are $2.50 and you can fill the cup with slushi, coffee, ice cream or cider as well as soda.

Room Tip: I called them direct.
