This “Shower Review Pilot Connecticut Milford” is a review of the shower facility at the Pilot Travel Center in Milford, CT, 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 Connecticut Milford
- A small packet of soap was waiting for us in the room.
- Plenty of counter space at sink
- Fan worked well
- Mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers

- Mike said that the toilet paper dispenser’s position on the wall did not crowd him when seated on the toilet.

Cons: Shower Review Pilot Connecticut Milford
- Even though the fan worked well, its air flow — even when directed right at the mirror — was not enough to keep the mirror from fogging up when a customer was getting a shower.
- There was a significant amount of mold or mildew along the grout in the shower stall, particularly along the ceiling and wall near the ceiling right as a user stepped into the shower stall.
- Showerhead was almost too high for a short driver to position. Vicki had to stand on the raised lip of the shower stall — on her tiptoes — to reach it and it was still a stretch.
- Shower water pressure was almost too hard (not quite up to “sand blaster” pressure but close).
- Built-in seat was not large enough for an oversized shower bag to rest on.
- Shower water splashed out of the stall.
