After a long drive I was trying to find somewhere in Carmel but could not find anywhere within our budget so decided to drive for another half hour or so. Sorry but this motel was probably the worse we had stayed in over the whole trip. The room was dated, and pretty grim if I'm honest. We arrived in darkness... More

This motel has very basic amenities and the rooms are a bit dates, but who goes to this part of the world to stay in a motel room? The room was clean, had everything we needed and the bed was comfortable. The service was prompt, efficient and friendly and the location was perfect. My only regret was that I did... More

We spent three nights at Borgs Motel. A stated in the previous reviews this is a no frills Motel. No coffee maker - no fridge - but there is a wide screen TV and you can't beat the location. Our room was clean and people at the desk were nice and helpful. They have coffee and tea in the office... More

As long as you get a sea view room this is a reasonable motel. A little tired, a little expensive, but nice to fall asleep to the sound of the waves, and good views. Clean beds, hot water, what more do you need?

Stayed here for one night. Because of the views. In the ocean view rooms you literally are a few yards away from the ocean. The rooms are very, very, very simple. The bathroom had a chemical smell. Price was way too high for this kind of a motel. Not sure I would want to stay there again.

OK, if you go in with the right expectations Borg's is really nice. It's a 1940s-era Motel, not a Hotel. But it's clean and functional. We'd definitely return to it. Recommended: an ocean-facing room on the second floor. It was so pleasant to sit on the veranda/walkway in front of our room and eat a takeout dinner. There's a road... More

Well, Made reso's in advance and choose room 2nd floor facing ocean. Based on remarks here I thought that would be great. Got there and VERY disappointed. We did have a window facing ocean BUT no balcony, no chairs to sit out looking out to ocean. Nothing but a window to look out where only sides would open [that was... More

I have been staying at the Borg's Motel for over 40 years. It has consistently been a wonderfully peaceful place to stay with very welcoming staff. Many of the rooms have full ocean views and large windows so that you can sit at the table while sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the view and sounds of the ocean.... More

Very interesting. The rooms along the road facing the water have great views and chairs outside the room for sitting. However, it is next to the road, there is no hair dryer or radio (although there is a music station on the TV), no coffee maker (although they have coffee and hot water for tea in the lobby in the...

I took my Mother and my Aunt for one night stay near the ocean, my aunt has never been since she was a very young girl and when she did go it was very brief just a drive by look. So I wanted her to hear the beautiful waves since she and my mother are visually impaired with RP disease... More
