“Like having an apartment in Fairbanks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

I spent 9 days here and I wasn't disappointed. The room has a full kitchen with all amenities, toaster and dishes included. I saved tons by feeding myself. You get a free newspaper every morning. WIFI was fast and free! Very few low points, not enough guest laundry if you plan on not brining enough clothes for your trip. The decor in the rooms is dated, very clean however. And there is no free breakfast like the chain hotels offer, however the space and kitchen more than make up for no free powdered eggs. P.S. Ask about car museum at sister property.

Stayed May 2014, traveled on business

Very nice rooms with very friendly staff and great location. Excellent restaurant in the hotel with lovely atmosphere for relaxing. Excellent price considering the suite size of room. Will definitely stay here again if we get the chance.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days in March. The suite was clean and comfortable. We liked the homey apartment style set up including the full size stove & refrigerator. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is convenient to the airport and other sites in Fairbanks.

The hotel has very large rooms and great eating areas. It is less than 3 minutes from the airport and is central to town. You can get anywhere from the hotel in less than 30 minutes. Great service and a friendly staff to boot.

The service was excellent, especially when it came to aurora borealis notifications. The room is clean. The bed and sofa were old (sagging), so this hotel can use new ones (otherwise a 5-point rating). The location is conveniently near food, gas, and the airport. Plane sounds are not noticeable.

We stayed at Sophie Station in Feb for 4 nights. The room is more spacious than usual and has a full kitchen. It also has plenty of closet space. A couople of big supermarkets are nearby so it's easy to buy groceries if you want to prepare meals on own. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I loved the stay at this hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Staff is always accommodating and attentive. I stay here on business every few weeks and they always find me a quiet room. Most of their room are giant, with a kitchen, siting area and separate bedroom. Most of the furniture seems 20+ years old. There are both flat screen and older tube TV's. Rooms have always been clean and quiet for me. The restaurant is excellent!

The downside is the beds and linens are VERY dated. Most people in Alaska have lowered expectations for accommodations, but there is no good reason they cannot invest in new beds and linens - It's the primary function for a hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor to avoid noisy footsteps over you.
