Shower Review Pilot Florida Wildwood

This "Shower Review Pilot Florida Wildwood" is a review of the shower facility at the Pilot Travel Center in Wildwood, FL, USA, based upon our own expectations of what a shower facility that caters to professional truck drivers of commercial motor vehicles should be like, our own preferences (especially in comparison to a home bathroom), and our observations.

Shower #3

Pros: "Shower Review Pilot Florida Wildwood"

  • Fan worked well
  • Mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Water pressure from the shower stall was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Showerhead could be positioned where needed
  • Water could be turned on and temperature adjusted in shower without having to get wet
  • Shower water temperature did not change significantly when the toilet was flushed
  • Door restrictor worked well
  • Towels were adequate
  • Washcloth was adequate
  • Toilet flushed well
  • Mike was able to get two more towels from the attendant.
  • Besides the standard towel and wash cloth, there were both a small package of soap and a paper bath mat waiting for us.
  • The showerhead delivered a good spray, like a home showerhead.
  • It was obvious from the two different colors of tiles that this facility had replaced the tile in the shower stall some time in the past.

Cons: "Shower Review Pilot Florida Wildwood"

  • This was the smallest shower room we've ever been in.
  • There was absolutely no "counter" space in the room. The only elevated horizontal surfaces upon which we could put our personal hygiene items were the very small spaces on the back of the sink, the top of the toilet and the built-in seat.
  • The sink had a pretty good sized hole on it, large enough for a man's ring to fall into. The hole did not merely drop through to the floor. Anything that may fall into the hole would be irretrievable.
  • Of the two extra towels provided to us by the attendant, both seemed slightly damp to the touch (compared to the one towel waiting for us in the shower room) and one had dark stains on it like it had either been used to clean someone's boots or wipe up the floor. The stains may have had no bearing on the cleanliness of the towel, but it looked bad.
  • Showerhead was not positioned in stall to minimize water from splattering on the floor outside the stall.
  • Shower water pressure lowered slightly whenever someone flushed a toilet
  • Built-in seat was too small for an oversized shower bag to rest on
  • There was no light directly over the mirror to let male customers shave without getting nicked.
  • When Vicki threw out her used cotton swab in the trash can (which was equipped with a swinging lid), she was very surprised that a fly flew out. Who knows where it went.

Overall grade for this shower at this facility on a scale of A+ to F- (with A+ being the best, F- being the worst): C+
