Amazing! We spent 1 night here on a road trip all the way up the Pacific Coast Highway. We did not want to leave. Adorable, cottage style room. Super clean and comfortable. The cost was totally reasonable. The best part? You walk out of the room directly onto the beach. It was absolutely beautiful and I would stay here again... More

Terry-A-While is a funky departure from your chain hotels. It sits right on the beach, you have your own deck and there is a nice little kitchen. We were in unit 3, which has two bedrooms which are located up the spiral staircase and two bathrooms (only one shower). The fixtures are a little dated and the beds could be... More

Great price for an ocean front room...Stayed in the "basic" unit w/o kitchen,etc. Worked well for me. Neat, clean, affordable, and ocean front...what a combination. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

I really enjoyed Terry-A-While. Who knew you could get an room right on the ocean in peak tourist season for 70 something dollars?. Its very clean, the owners who run the desk are charming (the lady was baking bread when we arrived and we got in a discussion of recipies and techniques) and I enjoyed the retro look and feel...

Positives: This motel is truly beachfront (check out the website's Panoramic View link and you will see what I mean). The unit we were in, Unit #3, had 2 rooms and was very, very clean. The cost per night is very reasonable, even at high season. Negatives: The unit was definitely older and dated - carpet upstairs in the bedrooms... More

I found this Motel to be a very clean, with friendly owners who were very helpful with my questions, such where to find a good restaurant, her recommendations were spot on. The grounds were very nice and tidy, with an incredible view, and short walk to the beach. The rates were very reasonable. I would recommend this motel to all... More

I have been reading some of the people, who just whine, as thats how they live their lives. One women saying that their wedding party was ruined due to their "no dog" policy. It clearly tells you when making reservations that they are not allowed. Did she read this? Also people talking about internet access. What do you go to... More

Terry, the owner of Terry-A-While, is incredibly rude and offers no assistance to her guests. At check-in, she offended our entire bridal party, including kicking out the bride-to-be because her dog was in the CAR. To get online, you have to sit in her small office. In response to our complaints about this (their website says they have internet), they... More
