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

I stayed here for one night passing through while riding up Hwy 1. Let me start with the good... The location is literally on the ocean front. IF you get a room that truly has a full ocean view, you can't beat the price you pay for the room. The staff is up front and honest about that view when... More

You gotta get there early in the day if you want a true oceanfront, but its not out of this world expensive, and worthy of the view. Right next to Lovers Point, I think its called, and on the ocean front blvd., the daytime activities nearby are hard to beat. Its walkable along craggy beachfront for miles in either direction,...

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
