Which unit did you stay in?
One of the units we stayed in had bedrooms on bottom level & kitchen, living & 1/2 bath on 2nd floor so there was a lot of stair climbing up & down which didn't bother me at all. However if you don't want to be going up & down you should request one without split levels.
