Happened by Borg's looking for a room on a Saturday night. The rate was reasonable for this area at end of summer. Basic, clean room literally steps away from beautiful Monterey Bay. No hair dryer or coffee maker in room. Lots of excellent dining options just a few blocks away on Lighthouse Ave.

Borg's motel provides amazing value for the area. We stayed in a King, partial sea view and we're thrilled with our accommodation. Our view whilst sat in bed was out over the bay and Lovers Point Park - wonderful! A comfortable bed, crisp clean sheets, soft towels and a shower room with excellent pressure. Exactly as described! The friendly staff... More

We found The Borg motel by driving past it and booked in asking for an ocean view room. Our room was next to the reception, so was handy from that point of view and was on the ground floor, so easy to take suitcases to as there was no lift. Unfortunately our room was 4 feet from the pavement and... More

Great location but not good value. Admittedly it was considered still holiday time and it was a sat night but when we consider where else we have stayed, for the same price, then this was a bad one. Beds uncomfortable, room horribly and dingy, shower was hilarious as at 5ft7 I had to bend down to get my head under... More

My husband and I really liked our one night say here. No special amenities. I like it that way-- I don't want to pay for a room with stuff I don't use like coffee and refrigerator. The price is really good for the location- right on the coast. Not fancy at all, but clean. The town of Pacific Grove is... More

Literally right next to the ocean is where you wanna be. Paid $161 Inc tax for one night 3 guests. Room pretty basic and no AC so stuffy even in mild temperatures. Wifi next to useless it was so slow. My shower was a game of dancing in and out of it changing hot/cold constantly! But great location in a... More

Make sure you ask for a street view with Ocean right across the street. Perfect to sip on a glass of wine at sunset or your coffee at sunrise. Not a flashy room but the view makes up for the average room.

We stayed here one night on our trip to Monterey. It is an older motel but was well maintained. We had a family room...two beds in two rooms, which was very nice. We opened our windows to listen to the waves crashing all night. I would stay here again!

Great stay. Frank (maybe Fred, sorry) at the front desk was helpful and super friendly. Hotel is older, but I enjoy that charm. Only complaint was no upper chain lock on the door. Our son is a toddler and very daring. He was able to pull on the door handle and open the door. Never made the escape, but a... More
