The worst motel in America

This one takes the cake. I had to make an emergency visit to see my son who is in the navy on the Great Lakes Naval base. The only motel that had a room was: the econo lodge on North green bay road. DO NOT STAY THERE!!!!!

The room they first gave wouldn't open up. Then when he brought the master key it smelled so bad! It smelled like paint, smoking and MOLD!~! I have asthma and had booked a no-smoking room.

The sink wouldn't drain, it leaked on my bags and the carpet. The ceiling tiles were missing, falling out. The light fixture was missing in the bathroom and only had one bulb. The carpet was filthy with stuff all over it. I didn't take my flip flops off! The furniture was filthy and I put a towel over it to sit on. The no smoking room had a ash tray on the desk. I had to use my inhalers several times, thank-goodness I remembered to bring them!

There was no bags to put dirty laundry in. No iron, no hangers to hang your clothes on. Fireworks went off at 02:00, those illegal kind that go BOOOOOOOM!~!~!

The FREE breakfast was:

plain bagels. a big jar of peanut butter for everyone to use. a tub of cream cheese for everyone to use. Orange juice. and the coffee was in a machine you had to PAY FOR! Needless to say. I was so sickened and heart broken we had to live in this arrangement as I tried to book another hotel and they were full for graduations.

So do not book this place!

Yikes!!! that looks like a disaster! How shady. Sometimes all it takes to ruin a trip is the hotel.

This reminds me of the Hampton Inn video where the guy goes off (in poetic form mind you) about every hotel guests worst nightmare.

I think you'll appreciate it after seeing these photos!

let me know what you thinK!

I have had several great experiences vising my son while he was in Great Lakes by staying at the Quality Inn in Waukegan -- It's just up the road (8 miles, I think).

Quality Inn
619 S. Green Bay Road
Waukegan, IL, US, 60085
Phone: (847) 662-3200

They give military discount.

Not sure if you're going again, but if you do, I can recommend these guys. I stayed there several times while my son was in Boot Camp, and A-school. (Once a month for 4 months.)

Not sure where you stayed, but Green Bay is one of the major arteries ... there's a gas station/dunkin donuts at the corner.
