Pros: "Shower Review Pilot
- Shower was clean upon arrival
- Counter space at sink was
adequate to meet our needs
- Fan worked very well; when the
mirror got fogged during Mike's shower, merely turning on the fan
cleared the mirror right up.
- Mirror was well positioned on
wall behind sink for
both short and tall drivers
- There was a light directly over
the mirror, allowing male shower customers to shave closely without
- Water pressure from sink was
- Electrical outlets worked well
- Water pressure in shower was
- Showerhead delivered water in a
good spray (like a
home showerhead). Mike said that the spray was so enjoyable that he
could have stayed in the shower much longer, relaxing under the water
flow. The spray and pressure were just perfect for both of us.
- Showerhead could be positioned
- Door restrictor was in good
- Towels were thick and thirsty;
two were like beach towels
- Washcloths were sufficiently
- Toilet flushed well
- There were four towel hooks in
the room, one on the back of the door and three together on the wall
adjacent to the door opposite the shower stall
- A paper bathmat was provided
- There was a soap dispenser in
the shower with liquid soap in it
- The towel and washcloth waiting
for us in the shower room was fresh from the dryer and nice and warm
- There was a streak of red paint
on the wall just above the door frame, showing that the frame had been
repainted at some point. Whether this was to spruce up the decor
or to cover over graffiti, we liked the attention to detail.
Cons: "Shower Review Pilot
- There was one hair on the
counter area when we arrived, and a small dark speck of something on
the toilet seat
- Built-in seat was not wide
enough for our oversized shower bag to rest on
- Shower water pressure reduced
when someone flushed a toilet
- Shower water
slightly warmer whenever someone flushed a toilet
- There was some dust on the wall
near the sink
- In the middle of the afternoon,
we were delayed in getting a shower for about 20 minutes until one
- None of the towel hooks was
directly outside the shower stall so that the user could reach a towel
from inside the stall to dry off; however, the customer could have set
the towel on the counter directly outside the stall.
- A fly that had flown into the
room buzzed around until we dealt with it.
- There were the beginnings of
mold or mildew in the grout between the wall tiles in the shower stall.
Notes: "Shower Review Pilot Georgia Braselton"
For one or more reasons we don't understand, there
was an air
blower set up to blow air down the shower room hallway along the floor
on the day we did this review.
This facility is the last major truck stop going
southbound on I-85 before getting to Atlanta, and conversely the first
one on I-85 coming out of Atlanta on the northbound side. Timing
the traffic flow into and out of this facility may be the key
to getting a timely shower.
Overall grade for this shower
facility on a scale of A+ to F- (with A+ being the best, F- being the
