Cons: "Shower Review Pilot
- 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
- 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
- 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.
