Shower Review Loves Tennessee Charleston

This "Shower Review Loves Tennessee Charleston" is a review of the shower facility at the Love's Travel Stop in Charleston, TN, 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.

Pros: Shower Review Loves Tennessee Charleston

  • One towel was waiting for us in the shower; we requested and received two more for the two of us
  • The lady who escorted us back to the shower was Anita, the Marketing Manager
  • Shower was clean upon arrival
  • Counter space at sink was more than adequate to meet our needs
  • Fan worked well
  • Mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers
  • Light was directly above the mirror, so that male drivers could get a close shave without nicking
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Water pressure in shower was good
  • There were two water delivery mechanisms in the shower, a standard showerhead and a bathtub-like spout down lower
  • The top showerhead could be positioned as needed
  • Showerhead delivered water in a good spray (like a home showerhead)
  • Shower was designed as a large opening covered by a shower curtain
  • Shower "stall" had handrails for the handicapped
  • Shower curtain prevented shower spray from splattering on floor outside stall; also there were suction cup sections on the edges of the curtain to affix it to the stall walls to keep more water in the stall
  • Towels were sufficiently absorbent
  • Washcloths were thicker than the towels
  • Toilet flushed well
  • An air vent to pull moisture out of the room was near the shower stall. We never experienced fogging of the mirror.
  • This shower was large, well lit and pleasant
  • Shower water pressure and temperature remained constant even when toilet was flushed

Cons: Shower Review Loves Tennessee Charleston

  • The door had neither a deadbolt lock nor a door restrictor
  • Towel hooks were on the wall behind the outside door, well away from the shower stall
  • Movable chair was not wide enough to handle an oversized shower bag
  • Although the shower curtain had 12 holes for rings, there were only 7 rings holding it onto the rod
  • The water coming from the bathtub-like spout could not be directed onto the user like it can when using a hand-held hose

Note: Shower Review Loves Tennessee Charleston

About the time that we showered, the facility's dryer went out. This did not affect our ability to get a shower or have dry towels with which to dry off.
