This hotel is great; I have a living room, full kitchen, bedroom, dressing room, large closet and bathroom with tub and shower. I am on fire assignment and all I really need is a bed and shower, but I'm not complaining one bit. It's also only 5 minutes to my place of work. I also get a wake up call... More

This hotel is quite nice. We stayed here as part of our cruise tour. Staff was excellent and rooms were very clean. Only reason I didn't give it a perfect score was because there was a wall unit air conditioner and not central air. Keeping the bedroom door closed made sleeping comfortable, but as a whole the room was hot.... More

We arrived at the Sophie Station Suites hotel with a tour group. I thought the hotel was clean and suited our needs. I always love suite hotels. The vanity area was very large and a bonus. We did not use the kitchen but it was very nice. I loved the location - close to many stores, shops and easy to... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Sophie Station at the beginning of our Alaska driving vacation. We found the suite to be comfortable and spacious, though we were unable to take full advantage of the kitchen, due to a lack of cookware and utensils. While this was a minor disappointment, we were very pleased with all other aspects of... More

I agree with what others have posted as far as the layout of the suite and the convenience of the kitchen. Eating out in Fairbanks is very expensive unless you have a rental car and know the area. The restaurant in the hotel was way beyond my limited budget, even for the simplest items such as burger and fries that... More

Huge rooms, including a full kitchen. The restaurant is a little pricey and they don't have a complementary breakfast like many hotels. This is a good place for tourists who plan to cook in their room and are on a budget.

Dear LowestoftWendy, Isn’t Jesse GREAT? He is a recent graduate of Hospitality Program, but I doubt they could teach him anything about being gracious he didn’t already know. He, along with other staff here, make Sophie Station a pleasant experience for hotel guests and for this hotel manager, as well. Thank you for taking time to post your comments. Be... More

We enjoyed the amenities of our room with one exception. Our room was extremely warm upon our arrival on a hot day. The only air conditioner in the suite is located in the bedroom, which meant it took a fairly long time to cool off the living room and kitchen areas. After our first night, this was not a problem,... More

Dear Katherine K, Oh dear, a warm room is a disappointment. I am sorry that was your first experience with us, but I am grateful you stayed long enough to enjoy our hotel in spite of that. Thank you for your comment on the electric tea pots. It was nice to read you enjoyed that recent addition to our in-suite... More

Fairbanks is a hard place to stay. You have a couple of "big box" choices that the business guys gravitate towards due to the rewards system, and a lot of local places that are poor. Sophie Station is a locally owned hotel that is fairly close to the airport, and also nicely self contained due to the fact that they... More

Dear traveloften028, Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts about Sophie Station with others. You made a good point, it can be difficult to find just the right hotel in Fairbanks. Some travelers like something with a local flavor (but that can be dicey) and I am sure they will enjoy knowing we are both locally owned and... More

We stayed at Sophie Station Suites for 4 nights in March to see the aurora. We were immediately impressed with the size of the suits. The kitchen was very well equipped, knives were sharp and everything was very clean and tidy. They even provided the paper towels. We were able to make most meals in the hotel no problem (great...
