The Beachcomber Shores has a big banner out front saying "BEST RATES". They also runs ads without the hotel name but its phone number advertising cheap rates in the newspaper and other places. However the cheap advertised rate is never available when you inquire. Expect to pay $98 per night for a room after you take the bait and show up. The $250 and $275 a week rate is always "unavailable" as well. Expect to pay between $350 and $400. Its a classic bait and switch and they don't even try to hide it. They will tell you "Thats just an ad we run year round to attract coustomers."
I stayed for a week watching cockroaches crawl up and down the walls. They said they were "spraying for BEES" and to stay indoors one day. They threatened to keep my $100 deposit several times. Once when I had a friend over (they spy for this 24 hours a day) and another time when someone said my TV was too loud. Overall it was a hellish nightmare and I would sleep in my car before I stayed there again. For the same price you can stay at much nicer hotels alot closer to the beach with many less restrictions and much friendlier service. Heads up folks!
