Notes, Grade, Recommendation, Comments:
"Shower Review Pilot North Carolina Pleasant Hill"

Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?: The previous user tightened the shower knob so tight that it took a good bit of "oomph" to turn it back on.
The "seat" in the room was actually a tall stool, only big enough to hold the paper bath mats, towels and soap. This was certainly not big enough to hold an oversized shower bag.
Although it appeared that there had been some tiles replaced in the shower stall, one was missing and there was a good bit of evidence of "grout fatigue." This could be due to age, heavy usage or staff working to remove mold or mildew from the tiles. See photos.
As far as the "door restrictor" is concerned, it was actually a sliding lock.
There was really no need to operate the fan in this shower room as there was plenty of ventilation or air movement without it.
The light, while not directly over the mirror, was over my head and I had no problems seeing while shaving.
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)?: B
Based on your experience today, would you recommend this shower facility to other professional drivers?: Maybe
Additional comments:: If I counted correctly, there are only 4 shower rooms at this location.
There was also a "shower ownership" label outside the Shower #1 door with two names on it.
