Room Location at Pullman

I'm travelling to Pullman in October with wife and two small children. with two toddlers i would prefer to avoid stairs where possible so I guess a ground floor room would be best. I hear some people complain about rooms facing some swamp or dumpsters. Does anyone know what building blocks these are so I can ask the hotel to keep me away from those. I'm not picky and don't need an ocean view, but dont want to step out into a dumpster either. October is not really high season, so I should be able to request a room in a better block. Just need to know what the better blocks are. If you've been, please give me your thoughts.
