If you look only at the room, Borg's almost resembles a rather tired Motel 6, with very stingy amenities (a couple of small bars of soap and small envelopes of shampoo; don't waste your time looking for the coffee maker, clock-radio or hair dryer). But that's not so important when you contemplate the magnificent view of all Monterey Bay or... More

I work at AAA and a customer said she stays here every time she goes to Monterey Bay. On her recommendation I booked a stay and was not disappointed. I'm guessing this motel was built in the '50's and it shows, but it was clean and right for the price. I got 2 rooms with a queen in each for... More

Have been coming down to PG for many years, and have found this to be a favorate place to stay. (Not fancy, but clean and next to the ocean and well... More

It was our first time at Borg Motel In Pacific Grove, Ca. The view was spectacular. The ocean was 30 second walk across the street. About a minute or so to drive to Cannery Row and First Awakenings restaurant in the outlet mall. Our room was dated but clean. No perks place, but who needs perks. The ocean is across... More

I have stayed here several times (2002, 2004, 2013). The price here is extremely reasonable for the location. It is located right across from Lover's Point, and is walking distance into Pacific Grove Downtown, Cannery Rows, and the Aquarium. The view is beautiful. As for the room itself, there is nothing spectacular about it, however, the location, the pricing, and... More

This is an old hotel that hasn't had much updating. The best thing about the hotel was the view of the bay from our room - we had a front room with 2 big windows facing the bay. Unfortunately the road is right in front too and we had difficulty sleeping d/t the noise and voices outside as well as... More

Very nice motel, bathrooms were modern and had recently been updated. Bedrooms looked a little dated but were very clean. The view was absolutely fantastic! Right on the ocean front. Front desk attendants were very helpful with any questions we had. Nice stay.

My hairstylist told us about Borg's. She had never been but friends told her they highly recommend it, so in the summer of 2013 we made a reservation to stay there on our road trip to the Central Coast. The motel is across the street from the bay. That's what you pay for: the location. If you have first floor... More
