We stayed here on our first trip to Monterey together. I was a bit skeptical about Borg's Motel (the name didn't sound quite right) but my husband, having stayed here before, assured me that it would be a great place to stay. Plus, it was pretty cheap compared to the rest of the places we tried. The rooms were very...

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable room with friendly staff and great location, this is it! The motel is dated, yes, but we found it clean and well maintained. We stayed here seven or eight years ago, and we hope to return next year. We stayed on the ground floor, non-ocean view (although we could see the ocean...

This motel is clean and will suffice for a place to rest your head while traveling but don't expect any bells or whistles. Pros: - great location; property overlooks the Pacific Ocean (although our room did not have an ocean view) - located in charming Pacific Grove, across the street from an oceanfront park and only a short drive from...

We had a 2nd floor beachfront room, a little pricier than others have mentioned, $125. It was middle Aged with a new bathroom and plenty of room, including a small walk in closet with just enough room for 2 suitcases to open on the floor. But, more importantly, it was across the road from the beach, seals barking and waves...

The motel is old and is in no way lavish. Room 146 was barebones, but clean and adequate for sleeping and other necessities. Just enough room to walk around the bed, The "closet" is a rack attached to the wall, without any enclosure, not even a curtain. There were few guests and the place was quiet. The rate was much...

I like going to borgs. Been going there since I was a kid and I continue to do so because of the location. Rather than stay at touristy cannery row ( which can be great too), I prefer lovers point because of the scenery and the little park there. Cannery row is like a ten-fifteen beautiful, scenic walk from borgs...

Just returned from my 3rd trip to Borg Motel. This place isn't fancy--which is why it is so great. Completely unpretentious, with an oceanfront property!! AMAZING. We stayed in room #142 for $89 +tax (on Labor Day Wknd). I could sit in the room at the small table and look from my window (without craning my neck) and have a...

We have visited Borg's several times over the years, and since we were on a budget this trip and would be in Monterey for several nights, we thought we would check in. The location absolutely CANNOT be beat....but it is what it is! An old, very basic hotel. You may remember these hotels/motels from road trips of your youth if...

As the other reviews mention, this place is kind of basic and a little dated. You have to go downstairs to get coffee in the morning. But it was clean with no ick factor, and the staff was pretty friendly, including loaning me a three-prong adapter for my laptop. If you get an ocean-front room, especially on the second floor,...

If you want a close spot to the Lovers Point and surrounding areas, this is it. It is a little dated in the decor but it really doesnt matter because the view is spectacular!
