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. Our biggest thrill with staying here was that you can put your name on a list to be called if the Northern Lights... More

We found the staff could use a hotel management course , they all know how to say sorry. The rooms had a musty, smoky smell and their answer was to bring us a can of Frebreeze. No food served between 2pm and 5 and the upstairs open patio is not open until the bar at 4. When we got back... More

Great location, within an easy walk to Safeway. Nice size kitchen with appropriate supplies. We asked for extra coffee & that was quickly supplied. No central A/C ( stuffy & humid ) but bedroom A/C made for comfortable sleeping. Extra fans helped for the rest of suite. Staff helpful re: transportation to local restaurants, etc. We were there with a... More

The suites are so comfortable and well designed that we immediately felt at home. The staff could not have been nicer and the lounge is superb. Housekeeping services are excellent. The Safeway Supermarket is a short 5 minute walk from the property or use their courtesy shuttle. We are definitely returning next year.

We had a very large, very comfortable suite, with full kitchen and two queen beds. Clean and quiet. Free computer/internet access in lobby. Free coffee & tea available 24 hours. Friendly, helpful staff. A short drive to UAFairbanks and Museum of the North, downtown, and Pioneer Park. Overall, a fine experience.
