“What a DUMP !!!”

  , Green Bay
This place is what you visualize when you hear the term "sleazy, flea-bag, flophouse" hotel/motel.Red flags:Upon arrival: 1) Hard to find (poorly identified) in an area replete with other, well signed properties. 2) Security window with speaker and pass-through (like they use at banks) next to the front door. Didn't have to use it, but it sure speaks to how ownership views the area. 3) Indifferent front desk clerk.IMPRESSION - we don't care about you, just your money.Going to the room: 4) Rooms are actually in another building, at the BACK of the property, adjacent to a warehouse and a parking lot for semi's. 5) NONE of the building's exterior doors are secured !!! NONE - I verified this myself. COME ON IN DRUGGIES, CRIMINALS AND the HOMELESS !!! 6) Hallway REEKED of cigarette smoke. 7) Scuffed walls, chipped and peeling paint on trim and doorframes. 8) Low wattage lighting in the hallway contributed to the sketchy ambiance.IMPRESSION - we don't care about your safety.In the room: 9) Absolutely FILTHY carpeting.10) Bathroom floor was sticky (what's that about?) with no counter space for toiletries. Shower/tub unit was clean; it and the shower curtain appeared new.11) Bathroom door had been replaced (why?) with a cheap plywood door which had been painted one coat with no primer - door's wood grain grinned through the paint.12) Unplugged lights which meant I had to move furniture to plug them in.13) Chipped paint around doorframes and on trim. Back of interior door was grimy with paint chipped. Flimsy security chain which would have offered no resistance if door had been forced open.14) Room had not been prepped for our arrival, so it was 80 degrees inside at 9PM. A/C unit worked but it took FOREVER to cool the room down.IMPRESSION - this place rents by the hour, doesn't it.Breakfast:15) Not a speck of protein in the offering, not even yogurt or hardboiled eggs. Just carbs.16) There was fruit, but it was far from fresh. The bananas will get changed out once they ALL turn black.17) Narrow, low ceilinged room with 2 - not 1, but 2! - inoperable A/C units that had been intentionally disabled. And windows that couldn't be opened. And it was exceedingly warm in there, even at 6:30 AM.IMPRESSION - get your bagel and get the hell out!Pool - no idea, but I imagine it resembled the one in National Lampoon's Vacation movie.Wi-Fi - what Wi-Fi ?!!?I could go on, but you get the picture. This location in Effingham has SSSSOO
