My husband and I stayed here for 6 days in March. The suite was clean and comfortable. We liked the homey apartment style set up including the full size stove & refrigerator. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is convenient to the airport and other sites in Fairbanks.

The hotel has very large rooms and great eating areas. It is less than 3 minutes from the airport and is central to town. You can get anywhere from the hotel in less than 30 minutes. Great service and a friendly staff to boot.

The service was excellent, especially when it came to aurora borealis notifications. The room is clean. The bed and sofa were old (sagging), so this hotel can use new ones (otherwise a 5-point rating). The location is conveniently near food, gas, and the airport. Plane sounds are not noticeable.

A couople of big supermarkets are nearby so it's easy to buy groceries if you want to prepare meals on own. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I loved the stay... More

Staff is always accommodating and attentive. I stay here on business every few weeks and they always find me a quiet room. Most of their room are giant, with a kitchen, siting area and separate bedroom. Most of the furniture seems 20+ years old. There are both flat screen and older tube TV's. Rooms have always been clean and quiet... More

We stayed at Sophie Station after our horrible experiences at the Hampton Inn. For 2/3 of the price, Sophie Station offered a room that was 3 times the size (literally). The interior of the room was a bit dated, but thoroughly cleaned and stocked with what you'll expect from a serviced apartment. It's also conveniently located next to almost everything... More

I stayed at Sophie Station from Jan 8th thru Jan 20th, 2014. The room is basically a one bedroom apartment. There is a small living room, a breakfast bar, a fully stocked kitchen and a bedroom with a king bed. The hotel has free internet. The cable TV is sufficient..not a huge number of channels. The room was cleaned daily.... More

The hotel rooms doesn't have the best decors, but it has everything you need, plus a full kitchen with utensils. Free WIFI, free transportation to the airport, and free yummy candy at the front desk was a huge plus for me. I didn't have a car so it was very convenient for me to walk to the supermarket, but be... More

I was there for the coldest night so far this year and I was as comfortable as I could be. I also appreciated the ample ports to plug in my vehicle. The room had all I needed ( except for a carrot peeler). The kitchen had the basics in pots & pans and dishes to make a meal. Salt &... More
