Notes: Shower Review Pilot Georgia Port Wentworth

  • By the time we got out of our shower, the cart that had held the extra towels that we needed for our shower was empty (because other drivers who arrived after we did used them as we did). This situation did not negatively impact us, but might have inconvenienced other drivers or caused them to seek out an attendant for more towels.
  • Management really needs to work on eliminating the mold/mildew from the shower stall. (We suggest using bleach, soap and a good scrub brush, for a start.) If mold was present, what other sorts of microorganisms were present in the stall, particularly on the stall floor where drivers would be standing?
  • The toilet paper dispenser should be routinely checked and refilled as needed.
