Shower Review WilcoHess Georgia
This "Shower Review WilcoHess Georgia Carnesville" is a
of the shower facility at the WilcoHess Travel Plaza in Carnesville,
based upon our
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

Pros: Shower Review WilcoHess Georgia Carnesville

keep water in the shower stall.

both short and tall drivers

installed near the sink
- There was a paper towel
dispenser with paper towels in it near the sink.

- Shower water temperature did
not seem to change when a toilet was flushed.
Cons: Shower Review WilcoHess Georgia Carnesville
- We had gotten two "extra"
towels from the clerk, thinking that there was already one in the
cleaned shower room;
however, there was no towel and no washcloth in the room. Had we known
there was no towel, we would have asked for three from the clerk.
- There was absolutely no counter
space in the room. The very tiny amount
of horizontal space on the back of the sink was sloped, making it
difficult to get objects to stay upright.
- The shower stall was small for
- Although the showerhead was
like one used at home, the water control knob in this room was designed
so that the warmer the water got, the harder the water pressure was. In
order to take a shower with comfortably warm water, the water
pressure was just a hair below what we would call "sand blaster" hard.
In our opinion, management needs to back off on the pressure by about
25% or install separate control knobs for water temperature and water
pressure in the shower stall.
- Showerhead could not be
positioned any lower so that the flow of water would go more toward the
control on the stall wall.
- While there was a blow dryer
provided, it did not have the kind of flow we are used to from our own
- Although there was a moveable
chair in the room, it was not even close to being large enough for an
oversized shower bag.
- There was no fan in the room
and it got warm in there. Before we left, Vicki's glasses started
steaming up on her face.
- There was no light
installed in the shower stall. One had to rely on filtered light coming
in from the room between the top of the shower stall and the shower
curtain to shower by.
- Shower water
pressure dipped noticeably when a toilet was
- Door had no deadbolt lock on it.
- Door had no door restrictor on
- One of the two hooks on the
back of the door was cracked off.
- A device used to automatically
close the door had been removed from the back of the door some time in
- There was a small amount of
graffiti on the top horizontal door frame.
- Although it appeared that the
drain worked well in the shower, because of the force of the water
coming from the showerhead, water backed up in the bottom of the shower
stall whenever one of us showered.
- The ventilation in the room
could have been better.
Observation: Shower Review WilcoHess Georgia Carnesville
In our opinion, management needs to try taking
everything needed for a
shower into one of its own rooms to see how frustrating it is having
no counter space in their truck stop showers.
When we "set up shop" at a truck stop shower sink, we
put all of our toiletries and related items there, including:
shaving pre-treatment, razor, two sets of deodorant, baby powder, two
hair brushes, blow dryer, cotton swabs, personal hygiene items, and two
sets of fragrance. Trying to jam all of this stuff on the back of a
small sink, balance it on a chair or continually having to
reach for it
from the floor is very irritating.
Recommendation: Shower Review WilcoHess Georgia Carnesville
If installing new sinks with countertops is too
expensive, having even a reasonably sized
table sitting next to the sink would help tremendously.
