Notes, Grade, Recommendation, Comments: Shower Review Flying J South Carolina Latta

Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?: Both the light over the mirror and the light in the shower were controlled by separate additional light switches on the wall.
I thought that the type of shower head in Shower #4 could be adjusted to give different types of spray, but in rotating it, the spray never did change.
From the time I entered this shower room until I left, there were drops of water falling from the vent over the sink. If I'm not badly mistaken, some of the water falls on top of the light over the mirror, which could eventually lead to electrical problems.
As soon as I entered the room and looked around, I noticed that while the toilet seat was up (indicating that it had been cleaned), the water was cloudy (indicating that it had not been cleaned or flushed prior to my arrival).
Based on your personal expectations, what grade would you give to this shower facility and your shower experience today (A+ is best; F- is worst)?: B+
Based on your experience today, would you recommend this shower facility to other professional drivers?: Maybe
Additional comments:: There were two soap dispensers in the room: one in the shower stall and one near the sink. The former had soap in it; the latter did not.
Even though the towels were thin, I'm glad that there were two waiting for me in the shower room. I wish all travel center showers provided two towels automatically, even if they are thick.
