Notes, Grade, Recommendation, Comments: Shower Review Pilot Tennessee Knoxville East
Anything else noteworthy about my shower experience
Although the shower room was slightly cool, it was in the mid 80s when I arrived. I actually like a cooler shower room!
The waste basket was clean, as though it had been washed. A piece or 2 of candy might be a nice touch for this incredibly busy travel center.
How I grade this shower facility and my shower experience (A+ is the best; F- is the worst)?
Would I recommend this shower facility to other professional truck drivers?
The fan was pointed directly into the shower itself in this room, so you might not be comfortable with cooler air coming in while you have hot water turned on.
