My room was fine. I was hesitant to stay here after reading different reviews. But for the price it worked out great. For me, a hotel is a place to sleep, nothing more and this place works out great. I love the price. I do not need all the amenities, a bed and a shower and I am good. I...

Borg's is simple but clean and comfortable. Given its location, directly across the street from the ocean and steps from Lovers Point, its value can't be beat. Our favorite place to stay in the Monterey area.

Will not be coming back to this place. The only thing going for it is the view. The rooms are run down, out of date and dirty. The staff was "okay" but not worth coming back. Find another place surrounding the area

Borgs is the standard in Pacific Grove for Economy Lodging with Ocean Front views. Don't expect anything fancy, your not getting it. However the Motel has been operating forever, with the same management (good management is important.) Their Balcony views on the second floor on Ocean Ave is the best to be had for the money!!! I've been back several...

Happened by Borg's looking for a room on a Saturday night. The rate was reasonable for this area at end of summer. Basic, clean room literally steps away from beautiful Monterey Bay. No hair dryer or coffee maker in room. Lots of excellent dining options just a few blocks away on Lighthouse Ave.

Borg's motel provides amazing value for the area. We stayed in a King, partial sea view and we're thrilled with our accommodation. Our view whilst sat in bed was out over the bay and Lovers Point Park - wonderful! A comfortable bed, crisp clean sheets, soft towels and a shower room with excellent pressure. Exactly as described! The friendly staff...

We found The Borg motel by driving past it and booked in asking for an ocean view room. Our room was next to the reception, so was handy from that point of view and was on the ground floor, so easy to take suitcases to as there was no lift. Unfortunately our room was 4 feet from the pavement and...

Great location but not good value. Admittedly it was considered still holiday time and it was a sat night but when we consider where else we have stayed, for the same price, then this was a bad one. Beds uncomfortable, room horribly and dingy, shower was hilarious as at 5ft7 I had to bend down to get my head under...

My husband and I really liked our one night say here. No special amenities. I like it that way-- I don't want to pay for a room with stuff I don't use like coffee and refrigerator. The price is really good for the location- right on the coast. Not fancy at all, but clean. The town of Pacific Grove is...
