Shower Review Pilot Alabama Lincoln


This "Shower Review Pilot Alabama Lincoln" is a review of the shower facility at the Pilot Travel Center in Lincoln, AL, 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 Pilot Alabama Lincoln"

  • Shower was clean upon arrival, to the point of being almost pristine
  • Plenty of counter space at sink
  • Fan worked well
  • There was good ventilation in the room, as evidenced when Vicki turned off the fan while Mike was in the shower to see if the mirror would fog up; it did not.
  • Mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Water pressure in shower was good
  • Showerhead could be positioned where needed
  • Showerhead was positioned in stall to minimize splattering on floor outside stall
  • Water could be turned on and temperature adjusted in shower without having to get wet
  • Door restrictor worked well
  • Towels were thick and thirsty, like beach towels
  • Washcloths were sufficiently thick
  • Toilet flushed well
  • Two folded towels were available on the cart in the hall leading to the showers; because of our need for two more towels, we did not even have to see an attendant for more.
  • There was a light directly over the mirror, which can help male shower customers keep from getting nicked while shaving.
  • Besides the standard towel and wash cloth, there were both a small package of soap and three paper bath mats waiting for us
  • There was a mint waiting for us, which is a nice touch




Cons: "Shower Review Pilot Alabama Lincoln"

  • Showerhead could have been better; this kind usually delivers the "sand blaster" type of spray; the spray from this one wasn't that bad.
  • Shower water temperature got slightly warmer whenever someone flushed a toilet
  • Shower water pressure lowered slightly whenever someone flushed a toilet
  • Built-in seat was too small for an oversized shower bag to rest on
  • There was one tiny little bit of graffiti on the hinge side of the door frame.

Note: This was the cleanest, brightest, nicest shower facility we've been in to date. Mike hopes that this facility stays this nice for a long time.



Overall grade for this shower at this facility on a scale of A+ to F- (with A+ being the best, F- being the worst): A
