Pros: Shower Review TA
- 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
- Electrical outlets worked well
- Water pressure in shower was
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
