This hotel is all about the location!! The hotel room is clean but it's very plain and very much out-dated with nothing special to offer other than the location. In fact, I found the room rather depressing but if you just need a place to sleep that is all about the perfect location than this is the place for you!... More

i was traveling North to research where to bring my ill husband, who as a chemist had helped to bring health to the beaches in Southern California. Borg's was there to provide me with a room for six days when there were few rooms available anywhere on the peninsula. Borg's could have denied me that much time, but they didn't.... More

Borg's Ocean Front Motel may not look like much but it was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful. We woke up, helped ourselves to fresh brewed coffee in the lobby, and walked across the street to Lover's Point to watch the sun come up...outta sight! While the rooms are dated, for the... More

Clean basic room, bathroom a little dated but clean and had everything we needed. No brew facilities in room, but coffee/tea/cho available each morning in reception. Great location overlooking the sea at Pacific grove, close enough to walk to Cannery Row or the beaches of Pacific Grove. Would stay here again.

I've been on a road trip for over a month, and have driven Hwy 1 from Washington, which I've never done before, so I wasn't sure of travel time to make reservations in advance for this part of the trip. I called Borg's on Saturday morning for a room for one night on my way to Morro Bay. Frank was... More

We chose this place based on the great price and good reviews here. The location is fantastic - we didn't pay extra for a sea view room, but we did get a view of the ocean from the side of the building looking over the park. During our stay the 'Feast of Lanterns' was on, which is a local festival... More

Stayed for one night in July 2014. Walls are paper thin so we heard TV's from the rooms on both sides of us. From 11pm-1am, there was a party going on in an adjacent motel (Lovers Point Inn) across the parking lot. It was pretty loud. Blankets on bed could use an upgrade. All in all, not a relaxing stay.

We're very disappointed to hear that your recent stay with us was not relaxing. We do have 24 hour Front Desk service and, especially in the case of noise, I highly recommend calling the office so we can request that neighbors turn down their volume or lessen party noise. Guests are usually very accommodating once they realize that they might... More

Rooms are very simple, dated, but clean. Hotel staff was friendly and let us pick from available rooms. If you choose ocean front second level as we did, you will have a breathtaking view. The hotel faces north, so the view allows you to see sunset and sunrise. I think the price for high season $169.00 is reasonable. Now for... More

The rooms were clean through some furniture was dated. Mattresses and pillows were very comfortable. Bathrooms in main building facing the water have been updated and are nice. Street noise was minimal after the day-trippers went home and the street pretty much cleared. In-room coffee would be a plus as would small refrigerators. Also hairdryers for the ladies. Try an...

We were in a crunch for a one night stay during our drive from San Fran to Santa Monica along the coast, and Borgs came to the rescue. A bit dated, but for the price and location (and one night) it was perfect. The rooms are big, and clean, but again dated. Free wifi was a plus (considering the Hyatt... More
