Great location, good room, and once we decided how to turn on the shower it was an ok place. Nothing fancy but heh, compared to the local over priced places, this was perfect! Minutes walk to restaurants and open view rooms are amazing!

The room is a little small, with no bathtub, but this is a very good place to stay in Monterey. My mother lives up the street, and knows the owner. When I made my reservation over the phone, my credit card was overcharged. We had a room with a view of the ocean without paying for it.

If you are staying here it really is worth the extra money to stay in an ocean front room. The views are beautiful and it is so nice to hear the waves whilst in your bedroom. The facilities are good and the rooms comfortable. It is a short walk down to Cannery Row as well as there being good restaurants... More

Ok, it has the best location you can ask for, it's ON the water. This place has so much potential... but that's about it. The beds are horrible. They are the type my parents bought me in the 80's. The room it's self was dated but we did get one with a second little room with a twin bed for... More

A fellow traveler recommended this place. It's an older property with the "mom and pop" feel rather than the mega-hotel chain feel, but it's well-maintained and comfortable. And the view can't be beat. It's perched right on the edge of the cliffs overlooking Monterey Bay and across the street from Lover's Point Park in Pacific Grove. We usually go for... More

Like most of the other reviewers, I agree the accommodations at Borg's are clean but basic. But for the money the view and location cannot be beat. We had a second floor ocean view room (#126) with an amazing view of the bay. From the two comfortable chairs in front of our room we saw otters, whales, and lots of... More

Stayed in a upstairs ocean view room and enjoyed watching the otters right from our window. Coffee is available in the lobby, room was clean, bed was comfortable. No fridge or microwave but if you are looking to enjoy being close to the ocean you cannot beat the location.

Simply put, you can not beat the view and convenience of Borg's. We have stayed here several times and find that this hotel is family run and consistant. This hotel is old, they do things the old fashioned way- you do have to call to make a reservation- the rooms aren't fancy- basic rooms- with cable and wifi. It's clean.... More
