We stayed 5 nights at Sophie Station Suites. Our room was large and clean. This hotel is in a good position to shops and food outlets. Free bus running between their 4 hotels in Fairbanks was very handy. Lovely gardens and friendly staff.

Excellent location, suites were large, clean, staff was excellent (Logan, Chris, Asha, Sarah). They were so helpful, suggested restaurant's, shopping etc. Stayed 4 nights. Restaurant on site was good. The hotel is close (walking distance) to a supermarket and restaurant's. The grounds of the hotel were so pretty with awesome flowers.

Great room with plenty of space and a kitchen. Nice and quiet as well. Separate bedroom so it was really nice to watch tv without disturbing my wife. Overall one of the best in Fairbanks. I would recommend the hotel for anyone.

Our first glimpse of this hotel was enchanting-almost like a chalet hotel with overflowing beautiful flowers. The suites consisted of bathroom, bedroom, living room and dining area kitchen and were well equipped with all the things you need in a kitchen; the staff even did the dishes!

We stayed here two nights as part of a tour on our way south. Nice clean hotel with basic but good facilities. Breakfast was good but rather limited, not a huge range at the full buffet. Bar looked good, did not go there ourselves but was full of cheerful souls so assume was of a good standard. No hesitation in... More

Though the hotel is outside the city a free shuttle runs to major points of interest. Our suite was outstanding. Too bad we didn't need to do any cooking. The hotel is within walking distance of Fred Meyer, the Alaska Wal-Mart which includes a supermarket.

Sophie Station offers spacious, comfortable suites that are perfect if you need a bit of room to spread out. Each suite has a well-stocked kitchenette, a small living room, a separate bedroom, and bath. The bedroom closets are the biggest I've ever seen in a hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the suite was very clean. The hotel does... More

This place appears to look nice on arrival, with kitchenettes, and separate bedrooms, but ours did not have a working bathroom. When I called the front desk, they asked if I could wait till tomorrow, and use the bathroom in the lobby. SORRY! That doesn't work. After I insisted they do something, a clerk with a plunger tried to fix... More

Although this was part of our cruisetour package, we would definitely stay here again, if we were to go back on our own. We had no issues and took advantage of the kitchen to reheat lunch leftovers.
