Okay, so back in April of 2012 I paid for a room, Room 126, one of my favorites. I had to cancel my reservation many many times. Frank honored my payment and this coming weekend I will be using that reservation, I know many may think this is an old school place but who cares, the rooms are clean, the... More

I stayed at the Borg for a week for a conference, and was very pleased. The room was very clean, and the location was great. I took a nice walk up the coast each day to the conference at Asilomar. It was a long walk, but I enjoyed the peace and fresh air, and it's a gorgeous coastline there. A... More

Location is everything and price is right. Ask for a room with a view and you'll be happy. It's not the Waldorf but it's a clean place to sleep and get around. The staff is friendly and always there to help.

I loved the free coffee and just walking across the street to the incredible view and marine protected ocean park. Lots of locals come to this area to jog, etc... I actually thought the place was kind of cool since it literally looks untouched since the 70s. Its like seeing a piece of Americana history that doesn't exist much anymore.... More

I consider myself very low maintenance so I figured with the great reviews that this motel must something great for people who normally stay at hotels but want to try this for the view. Umm, no. The busy street between the motel and beach almost completely canceled out the view, the walls were super thin and everything about it screamed... More

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, I decided to book a weekend stay at this motel. We stayed in room 150, corner unit with ocean views. I couldn't have been happier with the spectacular view of the ocean and Lover's Point. The room does need some updating but it is very, very clean. The bed was comfortable but it's the... More

The Borg is undoubtedly the best value and location you can get around pacific grove, close to Monterey Bay. Falling asleep and waking up to waves is amazing; you can't get any closer to the shore than this!! There are a few downfalls, but you get what you pay for in this area! Pros: proximity to the shore, lover's point,... More

Clean and tidy rooms, large free car park with rooms starting at $89 a night. Found this motel via tourist information office who was really helpful and made the booking for us. Really lovely walk from here into town centre, but the views from the hotel were amazing!!!! Yes you can probably get a more modern room at another hotel... More

My husband and I have enjoyed four stays at the Borg's Motel. The price is very reasonable and we have always enjoyed a clean comfortable room. This is an older motel, so don't expect a lot of frills. For us, the sound of waves crashing right across the street makes this the perfect getaway.
