Somewhat disappointed

The hotel was reasonably close to the airport, but that is all it was close to. The staff when we arrived was pleasant and helpful, but the morning staff was just the opposite. We were told there would be shuttle service but we ended up renting a car. It was not what I thought it would be. The room was nice but warm. They were kind enough to give us a later checkout at no charge, but overall it was a little disappointing.

Close to airport and free shuttle

This was great value- the room had a full kitchen, the staff was friendly, it was clean, there was a free shuttle from the airport, and a free phone kiosk at the airport to call when I arrived. Great!!

Above Average Stay

I booked 3 nights at the Sophie Station hotel from March 25 to 28, 2013. I like the full kitchen, which had everything you need for a full kitchen. My room was clean and the staff was very nice. My only complaint is the TV. It was working well until the last day; all the channels changed up and there was a lot of noise in most of them. I'm not sure if the hotel fixed this problem yet. You can buy groceries from Fred Meyer (5 to 10 minute walk) and also catch the bus there (though I never rode one). I do recommend this to anyone who's looking for a simple hotel with a full kitchen. However, if you are in Fairbanks to view the Aurora, I HIGHLY recommend that you book your stay in a lodge away from the city (if you don't have a car). That way, you don't have to book tours and leave early at 2AM when you can stay and wait all night at your lodge and get a better show without the light pollution.

Great Family Stay

Sophie Station was just what our family needed. Great space and comfort, close to everything we needed. Rooms not high end, but definitely better than average hotels. Very clean and staff very helpful.

great suite with nice kitchen

overall is good, nice and cozy, they also serve 24hrs shuttle from airport to hotel, it's sweet! and the staffs are friendly and helpful too, although it's a little bit far from down town, but still within 10 mins drive, as to the value, it's profitable!! I really enjoy staying there.

Definitely recommend!

This was the perfect place for my husband and me while we were in Fairbanks for five days to attend a number of spring events. We're both originally from Fairbanks so we're familiar with the other choices. We loved having a suite! Everything was well maintained (if a little outdated in style,) the bed was comfortable, and the rooms, well, were roomy by our standards. We were expecting two queens but were happy to find we were given a king. They also charged us less than the advertised rate. Great! There is loads of parking, and outlets are provided for plugging in vehicles in cold weather. We also had a lovely evening at their restaurant, Zacks. Our only complaint (and the only reason for not giving them five stars) was the irregular hours of housekeeping. They either came too early or too late and so we never got our room made up. Not a big deal and probably an isolated event. It certainly wouldn't keep us from staying there again! I would also like to encourage the hotel to offer the 'green' option of having your room made up but NOT changing the sheets or towels.

March is a GREAT month in Fairbanks! Lots of sun and not too cold. Make sure to view the amazing ice carvings, the University Museum, go for a dog sled ride, visit the university muskox farm, see the Northern Lights and more. Beat the crowds, the mosquitoes and the summer rates!
