Spacious and gracious! Spacious living arrangements and gracious staff. We found the hotel to be more than we hoped for. Especially enjoyed having the morning paper delivered each morning and the fitness room was a nice amenity. Beds were heavenly!! Highly recommend!

We were part of a bus tour and they chose this place. The rooms were clean but very old. The service at the front desk was helpful. It was nice to have some kitchen facilities to use for some meals. It is a little far from Fairbanks, but they do have a shuttle.

I only ended up staying here one night, but it would be a great place to stay for a more extended vacation. The rooms were quite large, with a suite like feel, including kitchen area and seperate bedroom. The staff was friendly and the location was good. Grounds were nicely landscaped. They offer a wake-up call for the Aurora, they... More

I've been coming to Sophie Station Hotel for over 20 years, using it as a pied-a-terre during trips to Fairbanks from rural Alaskan villages. I'm a "Bush teacher", and use Fairbanks as my hub for shopping, medical/dental connections, and for an occasional urban break. Whenever I can, I stay at Sophie Station Hotel. I love the facilities; those "suite" accommodations... More

What a great spot! Gorgeous flowers outside and warm reception staff who were friendly and helpful. Leave your room number and they'll call you if there's a Northern Lights sighting. The hourly free shuttle was a great way to get around. Our room was clean and spacious with all the comforts of home. Within walking distance of a grocery store.... More

We stayed here as part of a pre cruise tour. Rooms are spacious and comfortable just ask for better pillows as the ones on the beds are terrible. In house restaurant ok, look elsewhere there's better to be had close by. Staff friendly and hotel clean. Pretty good for Fairbanks.

The staff is really nice and caring; very helpful after a long and exhausting flight. The two room suites and kitchenette are comfortable. The A/C in the bedroom works best with the door closed. They have a courtesy shuttle to the airport, univeristy, and downtown.
