Water pressure was too high

|Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?:||
Besides the dim light in the shower stall, the only other light in the
shower room was over the mirror. There was none on the ceiling.
The water pressure from the shower head was way too high, what I liken to a "sandblaster." It is my opinion that it needs to be backed off by about 1/3.
Both my wife and I banged our elbows on the soap dispenser in the shower stall because it was mounted in the wrong location. It should have been on the same wall as the shower head.
The only lock on the door was the one that could be opened by a key, no deadbolt or door restrictor.
The ventilation in this room was absolutely horrible. The fan could not possibly keep up with the amount of condensation on the mirror when someone was in the shower or freshly out. Water condensed on every solid surface in the room: walls, counter top, toilet, mirror, etc. Management needs to attend to this immediately.
|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)?:||C+|
|Based on your experience today, would you recommend this shower facility to other professional drivers?:||Maybe|

Vicki took this photo while Mike was taking a shower and the fan was on full blast, indicating that there is a severe ventilation problem in this room.
