Shower Review TA Pennsylvania Harrisburg

This "Shower Review TA Pennsylvania Harrisburg" is a review of the shower facility at the TA (TravelCenters of America) in Harrisburg, PA, 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.

This facility is also known as the Harrisburg Travel Center.

Pros: Shower Review TA Pennsylvania Harrisburg

  • It was obvious that in the not too distant past, this room had been renovated with nice shiny granite-style tiles on the walls.
  • There was a very nice wide showerhead that gave a good spray. It could be positioned easily.
  • A small triangular "seat" was installed in the far inside back corner of the shower stall, although it was not large enough for a good-sized individual to sit on.
  • There was an installed corner rack for holding soap or shampoo installed in the shower stall.
  • There was a soap dispenser with liquid soap in it inside the shower stall
  • Door had a deadbolt lock
  • Counter space at sink was a little small but sufficient to meet our needs
  • Large mirror on wall behind sink was very nice for both short and tall drivers
  • A light over the mirror allows male customers to shave without getting nicked.
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Water pressure in shower was very good
  • Washcloth was sufficient to meet our needs
  • There were four towel hooks in the room: two on the back of the door and two outside the shower stall. The ones outside the stall were a little farther away from the stall than we would have preferred but at least the towels hanging on them did not get wet from the shower water.
  • The shower was designed such that one did not have to get wet to adjust the water pressure or temperature.
  • Mike said he did not feel crowded by the toilet paper dispenser when sitting on the toilet.
  • Although there was no fan in the room, ventilation was good enough to keep the mirror from fogging up.
  • There was a small vase of artificial flowers on the back corner of the sink and a small basket containing the washcloth and a piece of saltwater taffy on top (the candy of which was a nice touch).

Cons: Shower Review TA Pennsylvania Harrisburg

  • The blue shower mat directly outside the shower stall was wet upon our arrival. We don't know if this was due to a previous customer's use or cleaning the room. When we stepped on it with our socked feet as we were getting ready for a shower, not knowing it was wet, our socks got wet.
  • This was a small shower room, so small that the portable seat was stored underneath the sink when we arrived.
  • The sink had a drip.
  • Showerhead was not positioned in stall to prevent water from splattering on the floor outside.
  • While the towels were sufficient, they were not the thick and thirsty kind that we prefer

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