          I just booked a double room for April of 2015. After reading some of the reviews on the site that I booked my reservations on, I am concerned about the sewer stench a few of the reviewers complained about. Is that going to be a factor?? Have you been able to correct this problem? Also, my husband cannot climb up stairs to get into bed, are there beds on the ground level? Thanks, Jan
