Sophie Station Suites
Ranked #4 of 23 Hotels in Fairbanks
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2012

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.

The Sophie Station Suites was a very pleasant surprise in Fairbanks and was not expecting such a great place since we were on a RCCL tour. By the end of the tour we found RCCL chose some of the best Alaska has to offer and we were very impressed with RCCL. The restaurant served the best salmon we had in Alaska and we ate there twice. The lounge served great drinks and the staff was great and made us feel very welcome. Having a full kitchen was a bonus with good stores real close. The rooms were very clean as was the lobby and all the public areas. The flowers around the hotel were stunning with colors and amounts all through the grounds, super job by the hotel. I would book this hotel in a minute anytime it was so good.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms as far as I could see

This hotel was fabulous. Every room has a full kitchenette shich was great for a family to stay in. The rooms were very large and clean. It is pretty central to everything in Fairbanks as well. They staff was more than exceptional. They provided every comfort we could think of. They even helped us get to the Museum up at the University when the trolley was too full to take us.

If you get the chance - Stay here

Sophie station was one of the best places we stayed on our trip. The rooms are clean (and large) and the beds are very comfortable. We had a car so we weren't concerned about the location as much as cleanliness.
The hotel staff was terrific. I checked in and then started looking at postcards...I walked off and left all my documents for our trip (tickets, vouchers and room keys) just sitting on the counter. My husband and I went out for the night and got back very late and we still hadn't realized we didn't have out documents. Luckily the staff picked them up and had them ready for us when we got back to the hotel.

One bedroom suite was very comfy. Coin laundry on-site. Clean, quiet room even with 4 buses of tourists staying there! Furniture was all in excellent condition. No wear & tear furniture for Sophie! Will stay there every time I am in Fairbanks! Safeway Grocery is 1 block away. Restaurant onsite is not the best, but doable!

Room Tip: All suites are good!

The Sophie Station in Fairbanks was our starting point for our Alaska cruise tour. This hotel is an all suite hotel with a complete kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and a small living room. I understand that Sophie Station was first used for the workers on the Alaska pipeline.
The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly.
We did not utilize the restaurant in the hotel, but they did keep fresh coffee near the front desk.
Sophie Station is very close to a Safeway supermarket and a Fred Meyer store (like a Walmart).
One local eatery we visited was Brewster's (like Applebee's). Prices were reasonable and food was good.

In town for business and travel was set up by them, otherwise I would have stayed at Holiday Inn Express as I normally do for these kinds of trips. The rooms are outdated though clean and large, but the beds honestly have to change. The pillows were small wads of cotton inside much larger cases and it seems like it's such an easy fix? The housekeeping staff was almost entirely teenage/college age and were very awkward and had to be asked to do several normal things, and the front desk was hit or miss on getting someone nice. Close to Freddy's, laundry adequate, food expensive but decent. Wi-fi was spot-on entire time!
