Notes, Grade, Recommendation, Comments: Shower Review Pilot Maryland Perryville

Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?: This shower room has seen some hard usage. Of particular note was the toilet’s refusal to completely flush. I had to get a plunger from the shower attendant’s cart to “help” it. When I returned the plunger, the attendant had returned and I remarked about the problems I had encountered. He said that they had been having problems with that toilet for awhile.
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)?: C-
Based on your experience today, would you recommend this shower facility to other professional drivers?: No way
Additional comments: On a positive note, my wife liked the knob on the shower, which could control the water temperature and pressure independently. She also liked the shower head, which delivered a spray like one you’d find in a home.
On a negative note, the water that condensed on the vent almost directly over the built-in seat dripped on my wife who was with me and dripped twice more on the floor while we were there.
