Spent 5 wonderful, comfortable nights at Sophie Station whilst attending the Ice Art Championship. Spacious bedroom with more than adequate storage space, good shower, fully euipped kitchen, and sofa with good sized TV's. Cooked most of our meals in the hotel saving $$$ over high priced food in the Fairbanks area. Close to the Ice Park and food stores. Friendly...

I stayed for almost a week here for work and enjoyed all of my time there. The room was clean, service was great, and I had a place to plug my truck in. My next stay I will definitely request this place

learly22, Thanks for taking time to share your experience at Sophie Station Suites. It's true, February was a cold month in Fairbanks so I'm glad you took advantage of the head bolt plug in feature. We'll be here when you return to Fairbanks. Happy Travels, Cathy Schultz, General Manager

The place, the staff are awesome. They made our stay there perfect. From the front desk, cleaning crew and the server Catlin at Zacks. I would only stay there when traveling to Fairbanks, Alaska. Thank you all there at Sophie Station.

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...

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...

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...

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....

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.
