Pros: "Shower Review Pilot

both short and tall drivers
- Water pressure from sink was
- Water pressure in shower was
- Electrical outlets worked well
- Showerhead could be positioned
- There was a deadbolt
lock on the door.
- Towels were sufficiently thick
- Washcloths were sufficiently
- Toilet flushed well
- One towel, one washcloth, one
small packaged bar of soap and one paper bath mat were waiting for us
in the shower room.
- We were able to get two more
towels from the attendant.
- There was a light directly over
the mirror, which can help male shower customers keep from getting
nicked while shaving.
- Shower water temperature did
not seem to change when a toilet was flushed.
- Built-in seat was almost big
enough for an oversized shower bag.
- Shower was designed so that the
person sitting on the toilet did not feel cramped.
- Mike liked the water spray that
the showerhead delivered. This was definitely a step up from the
typical "sand blaster" type showerheads that we've seen at many truck
- There was a roll paper towel
dispenser in the room with paper towels in it. Paper towels come in
handy for drivers who wish to wash their hands and dry off before
showering without messing up the cloth towels -- or clean their shoes.
Cons: "Shower Review Pilot
- Ventilation in the room was
disappointing. Although the mirror did not completely fog up during a
shower while the fan was on, condensation formed on the walls and the
floor. It was pretty humid in the room after our showers.
- The surface inside the sink was
badly marred, as if acid had eaten it away.
- The sink had no drain
plug or stopper. We can imagine the problems associated with a
small piece of jewelry placed on the back of the sink accidentally
slipping into the sink's bowl and down the drain.
- In the whole room, there was
only one towel hook. There were none on the back of the door, none on
the wall behind the door, and of the two places where towel hooks had
been installed near the shower, one hook had been broken off.
- Shower water could not be
turned on and
temperature adjusted without having to get wet
- Showerhead was not positioned
stall to minimize
splattering on floor outside stall
- Shower water pressure lowered
slightly whenever someone flushed a toilet
