I was very impressed by Borg’s, close to a nice beach and oceanfront, yet only a short stroll from downtown Monterey, and still very affordable. Good sized room and friendly front office staff, they also had free wi-fi despite no mention of it on the site. It’s a huge motel with plenty of parking but thankfully wasn’t as noisy as...

We got ourselves an ocean front room. It appeared tidy and I didn't see any bed bugs when I checked. The man who accepted our reservation was super friendly. The woman who checked us in was accommodating but I didn't get the feeling that she wanted to talk much. The bed was a bit stiff (but I'm sure some people...

Management response:

I'm sorry that you were unhappy with your room. Did you tell us of the odor problem while you were staying with us? If you experienced any problem during your stay we would have preferred that you tell us immediately so that we could remedy it and not affect your trip. (This is why we have staff on duty 24/7.)...

I stayed at this hotel last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. When you arrive, you can see that the hotel has been around for awhile but it is very clean and the staff are very courteous and professional. Great Value and the location is unbeatable.

We love staying here, the location is the best. Right on the ocean front, the upstairs rooms facing the ocean have the BEST view. The rooms are small but clean. We spend most of our time out of our room walking the path along the coast or riding the path to Pacific Grove or to the wharf, so room space...

Fourth time we have been here and will continue to stay here when we get together with two other couples. Don't come here for the rooms - come for the location, the view, and the surf.

Yes... it may have been a little old with the decor but we loved it anyway! We slept with the window open all night and listen to the waves crash the coastline. We could see the ocean from our room. It was perfectly romantic! We walked to shops, restaurants, to the park...... great location!

like others, I am very disappointed with the upkeep and decor. The curtains are stained and dirty, and the room smells like old smoke. This smell is the number 1 turn off for me. If that was eliminated, I might not be as judgemental about this place. If there were just a few fix ups and clean ups, it would...

Borg's Ocean Front Motel is the place we like to stay when we go see our two sons in the area. There are rooms with an ocean view, but all we need is a basic room since we aren't in the room except to sleep. I might even say The Borg is our first choice!

We couldn't have found a better place to meet our demands, namely: An unique ocean view, easy access to the coastal trail, within walking distance of Cannery Road and an affordable price. Having searched the net in vain for a hotel with these qualities we stumbled across Borg's Ocean Front Motel by co-incidence - and what luck! In spite of...

We stay at Borg's every time we go to Monterey! The location is absolutely beautiful, and the people are super friendly. You honestly can't beat the price and the view. My husband proposed on Lover's Point 3 years ago, and we go back every year to celebrate. We usually take a taxi down to Cannery Row, but we have walked...
