The staff was very friendly and helpful -- they woke us one night and took us outside to watch an amazing display of the aurora. The room is more like a small apartment with full kitchen and separate bedroom and living room. Very near the airport and the University. Be sure to try breakfast at the Sourdough Cafe, just up...

We stayed at Sophie's Station on our way north to see the Northern Lights. It was everything the reviews spoke of and more. The staff could not have been more helpful, the rooms were very clean and very spacey. We will save this for our list when we return to Fairbanks.

We stayed at this hotel in May 2009 on a pre-cruise land tour. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was big...actually it was like a little apartment. It had a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and small living room area. We actually were pleasantly surprised because we were just expecting your basic hotel room. The room looked like it... More

Fantastic bargain at $89 a night, which includes a kitchen and living room and complimentary airport shuttle service.

This hotle was clean, however the decorations and the bedding was so out dated. The rooms looked very tacky, with the ducks on the walls and all the different floral patterns. It was roomy, and had great/helpful staff, but I think if I was going to pay that rate for a high end hotel, it should look like one.

We chose to stay here because of its' recommendations on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed in any way. The staff is very friendly and helpful (esp. Gayle and Irma Jean). The rooms are clean and spacious with separate bedroom/bath area and living room with full kitchen. The lobby has a computer guest can use (I don't think there... More

This is the 3rd time that I've stayed here over the last several years and it is consistently very, very good. The rooms are well appointed, large and quiet. The kitchen has a full size fridge and stove, but no dishwasher (the staff do your dishes every day). You can walk to the Safeway down the street for groceries, too,... More

We stayed one night prior to our cruisetour, and was very pleased. The hotel, while not the newest, was very clean and comfortable with a bedroom/living room suite. The kitchen was fully stocked, and there was a TV in the living room and the bedroom. The bathroom dressing area was spacious and well lighted. The lamps overall were bright, a... More

I used to live in Fairbanks and visit quite often still (4+ times a year). I have stayed in every major hotel in Fairbanks and have found this one to not only be the CLEANEST (by far) but the best deal for the $$$. It is located next to a huge one-stop-shop store, Fred Meyer,and a brand new Safeway -... More

this hotel was spotless, the staff was very friendly and the rooms are an unbeatable value . I am always skeptical about staying at hotels that I've never heard of but this concern was alleviated as soon as I walked in the front door. This hotel will be the only one I stay at when travelling to Fairbanks.
