Reviewed 14 September 2013

Hotel is in great location. The flower beds were very well maintained & impressive for Sept. 10. We were very pleased With Staff helpful & eager to please. Noise was not an issue. Carpets Not as clean as I am use to. Soiled rug areas & outdated spreads.. I threw a pillow on floor & would not use,lumpy.

Room Tip: Would have been nice to have had pool & shuttle run later.

We stayed one night - it was booked as part of a cruise ground tour. The hotel is clean, staff friendly and worked for a short stay. If you don't have a car, its a distance from downtown. Shuttle service ends early. As noted, there are some stores within walking distance to pick up snacks and drinks.

We stayed there for 4 nights in early August 2013. It was a very relaxing stay with a full kitchen, living room, and separate bedroom. We went to the Safeway within walking distance and I made breakfast every morning! It was clean and everything worked - I was very pleased given some of the other options I'd seen in town. Although close to the airport, I never heard any air traffic.

Room Tip: Reserve early - they'll be booked full if you wait until summer. Go visit their antique museum...

We were impressed upon arrival to see some well maintained, beautiful flower beds and a nice entrance. The lobby is large with comfortable chairs and friendly desk clerks. We arrived about 1:00am after something like 22 hours of travel time (flight delays), so we were pretty exhausted. We were settled in quickly, however, and were there for two nights. The suite is spacious and bed comfortable. After reading such other positive reviews, we were surprised to find the suite less than clean. There was spilled soda and soda can rings on both an end table and also a night stand, so neither could possibly have been washed. In the morning, the desk clerk complained about the night clerk. We had been told upon arrival that they provided van service to the tour company a couple of miles away that we were going to be going out with. The morning clerk said they were "not a taxi service" and "service is only to the airport." Seems like they should get their act together. The soda spills were not cleaned up the following day as well, so I left a note pointing it out and less of a tip. It's still a great place and we'd stay there again.

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.
