We spent nearly a month in Fairbanks to visit the area and to hunt for Aurora Borealis. The Northern lights showed up several times right above our hotel AND they will do wakeup calls if you want to be awakened when the Aurora dances above your heads. The rooms are large and comfy with fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms. EASY...

We don't often give 5/5 reviews, but Sophie Station Suites deserve it. For 2 nights, our room was in a nut shell - great! Big 1 bedroom apartment you could comfortably stay in for an extended period. Comfortable, well appointed and real clean, a real home-away-from-home. The accommodating staff will give you a wake up call on request to experience...

Our stay at Sophie Station was comfortable and very pleasant. The room was large with a full kitchen, living room with television; and, a king bed in the separate bed/bath room. The restaurant food and service was great. The hotel is about 100 feet from two grocery stores that sit across from each other. There is a food/walkup trailer near...

The place was nice and huge, with large and clean rooms. I just found a quite unfriendly receptionist giving some wrong informations about the northern lights. But it was an exception, all the others were nice and helpful. There is a huuge supermarket 2 minutes by car, where you can find anything and can grab some good food in case...

I've stayed at Sophie's on a number of occasions for work. The rooms are well equipped, clean, and tidy. There is plenty of parking with winter plug-ins. The location is a short drive to town and to the airport. Food nearby.

I always enjoy staying at Stophie Station in Fairbanks. The suites are comfortable and it is great to have a kitchen. Close to the airport and grocery stores (Safeway and Fred Meyer). (Ignore this part.)

This hotel has a lot going for it - especially the amount of space you get for the price. The suites had a large kitchen area, separate bedroom, kitchen, bath counter and shower areas. Kitchen included a full stove/large fridge/microwave/hot water pot, as well as a lot of counter space. Everything was very clean. The restaurant is good, though 8am...

Recommending Sophie Station Suites to all who visit Fairbanks. Transportation was provided to and from airport. Room was large, clean and fully equipped including spotless kitchen with all necessities. They thought of everything including a balcony. The staff was friendly and anxious to help with all our needs. We were treated like family. Best of the best!!!
