Notes, Grade, Recommendation, Comments:
"Shower Review Flying J Virginia Fort Chiswell"

Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?: There was a "friction strip" along the top of the lip separating the shower stall from the rest of the room. I assume this is to keep users from slipping when stepping on it.
Although the main light in the room had space for two light bulbs, one was burned out.
The liquid soap dispensers at the sink and in the shower stall had soap in them. The soap at the sink seemed a bit thin.
The main light fixture in the middle of the room had room for two light bulbs but one was burned out.
See photos.
Based on your personal expectations, what grade would you give to this shower facility and your shower experience today (A+ is best; F- is worst)?: B+
Based on your experience today, would you recommend this shower facility to other professional drivers?: Maybe
Additional comments:: There were places on the ceiling where the surface was cracked (as in cracked paint). This is possibly due to excessive moisture in the room.
