Rooms more like small apartments - full kitchen, separate living area & bedroom (each with TV). It is conveniently located near 2 large grocery stores, and buses stop in front of both. The staff is friendly & helpful. There is free wifi in the rooms and a computer with printer that can be used in the lobby, free transportation to...

I had booked a room with a sofa bed. Note: all rooms do not have sofa beds! When we arrived late in the evening, there was no sofa bed. The staff very quickly remedied the situation with a roll-away bed and the next morning moved us to another room with a sofa bed. They were very pleasant about the situation,...

We were very pleased with this hotel. Great value. We loved the suite style layout. Bedroom, living room and full kitchen stocked with dishes and utensils...even a wine opener. Conveniently located next to grocery stores. Staff was always so helpful, courteous and respectful at all time. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Fairbanks.

We found this hotel online and booked it because it was close to stores (and we didn't rent a car). Turned out to be an incredible deal. We had a suite -- full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom -- all for an incredibly reasonable price. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bathroom was large with plenty of space for toiletries....

I was very happy with my suite at the Sophie Station. Everything was clean and comfortable and the service was always friendly and helpful during my week stay in Fairbanks. During certain days that were too cold to venture out, I really enjoyed the restaurant and bar that's right inside the hotel. Like some others have mentioned, the Wi-Fi is...

The photos on their site, and on here do not do it justice. The suite was lovely and very clean, something I was very happy about. The suite had a separate bedroom, and full kitchen. Being next door to Safeway and Fred Meyer, is a PLUS! I visited both, and prefer Fred Meyer to Safeway big time! The staff were...

We arrived there from Chena hot spring resort in January. We got our room right away. We stay there for 3 nights and it is really conveniently situated between " Safeway" and "Fred Meyer" stores. Gas station, Taco Bell, Carls Junior fast food restaurant are around the corner. We got two queen beds bedroom, living room, kitchen, and refrigerator. They...

I am not exaggerating when I say my boyfriend and I are in love with Sophies! My boyfriend is stationed at Fort Wainwright in Alaska and I currently live in Washington State. On a whim we chose to stay at Sophies the first time I went to visit and since then we have always chosen to go back. The staff...

I arrived on a Friday night (actually in the wee hours of Saturday morning) and despite the late hour was greeted by friendly staff members who made sure I get into my room quickly and without problem. When, by chance I had troublesome neighbors, the staff handled with diligence and ultimately evicted them. When my flight out was delayed, they...

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...
