This is not true, simply because you didn't even know how Google Adwords really works in every category of marketing.

Google AdWords isn't perfect, but it's more than what you mentioned it is. Knowing that you'reasking for the disadvantages, here's several that I can think of.

It's easy setting up an AdWords campaign. But this being an extensive tool, you'd need to set it up carefully to be cost-effective. That being said, to set up everything just right for your campaign, you might need the help of some experts (if you can't on your own).

Each click to your website is a charged to you even if that visitor buys or not from your website. And if you fail to pay for AdWords can cause your presence from Google to be immediately removed.

Everything has two sides - benefits as well as disadvantageous and Google Adwords is no different. While you may get instant traffic towards your website but the problem is if there is any one who is jealous of you, your account might end up being debited a huge amount of money for wrong clicks by the said person. That is what i have seen with an individual.

well there's always two sides to everything and Google AdSense isn't exempted. True, you can get traffic into your website easy but like what the others said, if someone's against you, it can get pretty messy.
