“Nice Place To Stay”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

Stayed here with a Royal Caribbean Cruisetour. Spacious Suite, good restaurant, and very friendly staff. Not like a hotel in the lower 48, but very comfortable. Fred Meyer (like Target Super Store) close by to get snacks for your trip.

We spent 5 nights at Sophie Station the last week in July on the recommendation of friends in Alaska. Our friends were spot on about how spacious and nice the suites were. We spent a lot of time at the World Eskimo & Indian Olympics and the U of A North Museum. It was so wonderful to come home after a long day, put our feet up, maybe take a nap, and have a glass of wine before heading out again. It was also nice to stay at a property that was a part of the history of building the Alaskan Pipeline. Ladies: there is the greatest quilt shop right next door, as well as the convenience of Fred Meyer and Safeway. The accommodations were very clean, the staff excellent and helpful. We just can't say enough. We plan on going back to Fairbanks in the near future and this is definitely where we will stay!

Stayed at Sophie Station recently as part of a Celebrity cruise/tour. The staff was gracious and always there to help. The rooms are spacious. The hotel is location close to a grocery store and to a Fred Meyer. We were able to purchase drinks and snacks to keep in our room. The rooms are clean and well maintained, even though the Sophie Station is a somewhat older establishment. We were well pleased.

Stayed there on a pre-cruise tour with Celebrity on June24-25. It's an apartment-like room with a kitchen, bedroom and living room. They had 1 air conditioner in the bedroom and it was more than sufficient...even though it was 93 degrees in Fairbanks those days....Very clean and the staff was extremely pleasant. Can walk to food stores so it was great to get a few things after a long flight from FL. It was a wonderful place to begin our Alaska adventure.

We stayed here for two nights with a Royal Caribbean cruisetour. What a great place to stay! We really enjoyed the location--so close to Fred Meyer (like a WalMart), grocery store, and fast food places. Our room was very clean, quiet, and spacious. And, we had a living room and a full kitchen. We kept some fruit, snacks in the fridge, and that was very convenient.
We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: very clean!

We are spending two months in Alaska and mostly camping. We had errands and car work to be done in Fairbanks and stayed three nights at Sophie. It was perfect. Kitchen allowed us to save some money on restaurants. The room was clean and well appointed. The staff was fantastic. The salt water taffy basket at the front desk was a nice touch too. Might seem a little pricey relative to lower-48 prices but that's just the way to goes up here. Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel get morning sun. But it's bright all day this time of year. They...

This was our fist hotel during our Royal Caribbean post-cruise land tour. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It does not look much from the outside and seems a bit dated but the rooms and the service more than make up for it. This is more like an appart-hotel with 1 bedroom and a full kitchen adjoining the living room. Having a separate bedroom is a godsend for us as I tend to rise early and can do my stuff while my wife profits from a longer sleep.

Location is interesting and the staff was great. We had a very good breakfast in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed our stay.
