So I just downloaded a copy of Ubuntu 18.10 on a USB stick.
I have an old laptop I want to install it on. The drive was wiped out at one point.
When I setup the laptop to boot from USB and restart, the only thing that appears on my screen is the following:
GRUB _

What am I doing incorrectly?

Define old in terms of years. It may not be capable of booting from a usb. Have you done that previously?
How did you create the Ubuntu install usb, specifically which method or what software did you use?
Do you have another computer you can test to see if the usb boots on it?
