This trip was just me and my dad, and we had plenty of space. We didn't make much use of the kitchen or living room for our relatively short trip, but it was great to have them available! I can imagine having two TVs would be especially nice for families or even groups of friends with different tastes in TV... More

Nice for families, plenty of room to stretch out. Kitchen is fairly well appointed, so full meals are easy to prepare. Restaurant is super slow and pricey, a friend who was staying in another room waited 40 minutes for an expensive bowl of cold oatmeal -- eat elsewhere or make your own meals. I chose this hotel due to its... More

We stayed at Sophie's on a Friday night for a holiday party. We had a bedroom, living room & kitchen (maybe they are all set up this way?). It was a very clean room and our room was nice and quiet. Our one surprise was that the restaurant was not open on weekends for breakfast! Not even a little set... More

The rooms were very nice. Yeah, as a few of the other reviews have stated, it's a bit dated decor wise but for what you get, definitely worth it. The full kitchen was very nice, though I didn't use it because I was there on business and never made it back in time to cook, it was a nice option.... More

Things I like: The friendly staff, the cozy setting, spacious room, the price, the kitchen helps you save up a few bucks in Fairbanks, the location - just across a couple big supermarket, the 24-hours coffee you can get at the lobby. Things I dislike: everything looks relatively dated.

This was my first visit to Sophie Station and won't be the last. The room was a true suite with a fully stocked kitchen and a bonus separate bedroom .!! Could have stayed longer for sure. Very nice staff, even late at night when we checked in. Had an excellent room service breakfast in the morning....everything was piping hot, unheard... More

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.
