Shower #1

Pros: Shower Review Pilot Tennessee Crossville

  • This shower room was decorated with artificial flowers both in a basket on the counter and above the mirror
  • One towel and washcloth were waiting for us in the shower
  • Shower was clean upon arrival
  • Counter space at sink was sufficiently large
  • There was a light fixture on the wall directly over the sink by which male drivers can get a close shave without nicking
  • The mirror was well positioned on wall behind sink for both short and tall drivers
  • Water pressure from sink was good
  • Electrical outlets worked well
  • Shower was designed to allow the user not to get wet when turning on the water as well as to keep splattering outside the stall to a minimum
  • One towel hook was directly outside the shower stall making it easy to reach for a towel from inside the stall upon completion of shower; three more were on the wall behind the door
  • Door restrictor worked well; door also had a locking knob.
  • Towels were thick and thirsty (like beach towels)
  • Washcloths were sufficiently thick
  • Toilet flushed well
  • Water from showerhead warmed only slightly when the toilet was flushed
  • The fan worked well
  • The mirror did not fog at all
  • Showerhead gave a good spray (but not quite like a home showerhead)
  • Showerhead could be positioned where it was needed
  • There was a framed letter from the general manager thanking us for our business
  • There was a packaged bar of soap, a paper bathmat and two individually wrapped pieces of candy on the counter when we arrived. (The candy added a nice touch.)

Cons: Shower Review Pilot Tennessee Crossville

  • The built-in seat was not large enough for an oversized shower bag
  • Water pressure in the shower reduced significantly when a toilet was flushed
  • The toilet paper dispenser was defaced
  • The toilet paper dispenser was mounted in such a way so as to crowd a large-framed driver sitting on the toilet.
  • Although there was a light in the shower stall, it was not working.
  • The flow of the water through the showerhead sounded noisy. Mike noted that changing the position of the showerhead affected this.
