These spacious suites are ideal for a family looking for comfort and convenience. With two queen beds, space for a rollaway or crib, and a separate sitting area, you’ll have plenty of room to spread out. Every suite includes a fully equipped kitchen with large refrigerator, oven, stovetop, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, cookware, dishes and utensils. If you’re too tired to cook, head down to Zach’s Restaurant, the onsite eatery that serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Sophie Station Suites is in a great location just a few miles from the Fairbanks Airport and only blocks from the beautiful Chena River. You’ll be within walking distance of several large grocery stores, as well as a variety of other restaurants. Two miles from your hotel is Pioneer Park, the historically-themed city park that includes museums, art galleries, a restored gold rush town, a 36-hole mini-golf course and a host of other attractions. Three miles away is the renowned University of Alaska Museum of the North, where you can explore the people, wildlife, geography and history of the state. Kids will love the wooly mammoth skull and the gold rush equipment on display. Two miles to the west of your hotel is the Riverboat Discovery, a giant paddle wheeler that offers an unforgettable three-hour tour down the Chena River. With its excellent location near attractions, stores and restaurants, the Sophie Station Suites makes a great base of operations for your family adventure in Fairbanks.

A fine place to stay

by DWooTravel

This little hotel is a nice place to stay in Fairbanks. The rooms are outdated but clean. There is plenty of space- you have a kitchen, little living room, and bedroom with good size bathroom. The sink area is large and has plenty of counter space for laying out toiletries. Zach’s restaurant was good, though service was a bit slow. They could benefit from a little extra help with snow clearing; the parking lot was not cleared well and got very slippery.

Returning Guest To Fairbanks

by BJKnitter

The apartment style room is perfect for our extended visit travel. We visit every year to see family and use the kitchen (basic equipment) to have smallish family meals. It is good to have a bedroom with a door for the night-owl and sleeper to share a space. It is clean and comfortable except the couch is worn with depressions at both ends, so was not as comfortable as we'd like.
