Nice hotel not far from the airport. There isn't much around that is within walking distance, but there is a nice restaurant and bar inside the hotel that does the job. They also have a convenient shuttle to the airport that runs 24 hours a day.

Our recent vacation included a stay at this hotel. We found the entire staff welcoming and friendly. Our suite was well appointed and met all of our needs. The kitchen area included basic appliances (fridge, stove, microwave) that served us well. Now, some might complain that the appliances were basic (not stainless steel), but everything worked to our satisfaction. The...

This is the second time we have stayed here...was great. They just really go out of the way to make your stay great. And the restaurant was very good also. We would do this place anytime we could get to Fairbanks...oh the flowers ...so beautiful. Everything clean and comfortable.

2nd floor suite with BR with 2 Queen beds, kitchenette living area with small balcony. Spent 4 nights while visiting daughter. Noisy with windows open/next to busy street. Cost reduced on weekend when no breakfast /lunch available in restaurant. Continental breakfast would have been good option on w/e.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights and found it to be very clean with a friendly staff and excellent accommodations. Our favorable opinion began with the many beautiful flowers along the exterior of the building and lasted throughout our stay. There are several good restaurants within walking distance of this hotel as well as other...

Sophie Station Suites was the first stop on our 3-week land and sea tour of Alaska and the Canadian Rockies. What a wonderful way to kick off the Holiday. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable - couldn't ask for more. Not that watching TV is high on our list when we're traveling...but, when you're in Fairbanks in July and...

We traveled to Alaska as part of a cruise/land tour. We landed in Fairbanks at 2am and called Sophie Station to come and fetch us. They were there in less than 10 minutes. The drive back to the hotel was quick and when we got there we were very pleased. The lobby was brightly lit and the desk staff was...

Our first layover in Alaska was here, and what an impressive hotel. The room was big, comfortable, clean, and airy. We stayed two nights and wished we could've stayed longer because it was so nice. The staff was also top notch: friendly, helpful, and professional. It isn't far from downtown Fairbanks, or the University of Fairbanks, so it's a great...

End of our tour, stayed at this hotel and what a pleasure it was to be staying here. The staff were wonderful and the rooms are fantastic! Like a home away from home. Big screen tv, lounge room and kitchenette. Bathroom that would fit a family!

Luckily, I was here for a work trip and they paid for it. If they hadn't I would've been sorely upset. For the price you'd think that you would at least have movie channels, a pool, a better gym facility, etc. The room is equipped with a full kitchen, king size bed, and full bath and the WIFI was good.
