The light inside the shower stall could have been affected by the dark color of the tiles. It seemed rather dark to me personally.How I grade this shower facility and my shower experience (A+ is the best; F- is the worst)?
C+Would I recommend this shower facility to other professional truck drivers?
It was VERY warm as I entered into the shower room. It felt as though there was no air conditioning running. It was raining outside and perhaps management felt that air conditioning wasn't needed.
If this is the case in the future, you will want to be exceptionally careful exiting from the shower, as the floors and sink were wet from condensation. You wouldn't want to slip and fall on the floor.
The fog on the mirror dissipated rather quickly when I turned the fan toward it.
I downgraded this shower experience because of these factors. Otherwise, it felt nice to get clean with hot water and soap and be on my way.
