That's a very good temperature. Any lower than 60 and your yeast is likely to go to sleep, stalling fermentation. Any higher than 70 could result in off-flavors from stressed yeast.

Mid-60s is just fine.

The temp in my basement is a steady 63/64 degrees. And my brew is coming along fine. One suggestion from a lot of people here is to let it ferment for 3 weeks instead of 2 weeks since the temperature is lower and the yeast may work slower.

Yeah, a plus on that 3 weeks at that temp. The yeast would be playing pretty slow...but still playing.
