Shower Review Petro North Carolina Mebane

This "Shower Review Petro North Carolina Mebane" is a review of the shower facility at the Petro Stopping Center in Mebane, NC, 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.

  • Shower is free with minimum 50 gallon purchase of fuel from a Petro Stopping Center anywhere in the nation within the last 5 days or by purchase for USD $10

Pros: Shower Review Petro North Carolina Mebane

  • One towel and washcloth were waiting for us in the shower
  • As soon as the announcement about our shower assignment was heard, a shower attendant (Jesus) was on hand to point us to the right shower and get us extra towels
  • Shower was clean upon arrival
  • Counter space at sink was large and expansive
  • The two double-bulb light fixtures on the wall directly over the sink and next to it were more than sufficient to light up the entire room; male drivers can get a close shave without nicking
  • The very wide mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Shower was designed to allow the user not to get wet when turning on the water as well as to keep splattering outside the stall to a minimum
  • Two towel hooks were directly outside the shower stall; a third was nearby
  • Door had a deadbolt lock
  • Washcloths were thicker than the towels
  • Toilet flushed well
  • Water from showerhead warmed only slightly when the toilet was flushed
  • Hooks were directly outside of shower stall; it was easy to reach for a towel from inside the stall upon completion of shower
  • The air vent pulled moisture out of the room such that there was only the smallest amount of fogging of the mirror.
  • The built-in seat was large and spacious, more than enough to hold an oversized shower bag and sit down at the same time

Cons: Shower Review Petro North Carolina Mebane

  • There was no fan in the room
  • Towels were thin
  • While the showerhead appeared to be like one you'd use at home, the water coming from it was not evenly sprayed
  • Water pressure from the showerhead was quite strong, almost too hard
  • The toilet paper holder was defaced
  • There was a substantial amount of graffiti on the back of the door, which was also damaged near the floor.

Note: If you purchase a shower at this facility via the kiosk, you will need to insert two USD $5 bills. The extra note taped to the kiosk instructed users to insert a USD $10 bill, but the kiosk will not accept it. We know because we tried it.
