This past August (2014) I booked a room at the Derby Inn for this coming July (2015). Knowing that it would be a busy weekend I wanted to book early. I was sent an email confirmation. I called to reconfirm my reservation as we are putting the final touches on our summer plans only to find out that the reservation... More

There are two sides to every story. There are two truths to this story, one being that she made a reservation back in August of 2014 and the second that I did cancel it on August 15, 2014 due to overbooking. I called dks88 home and left a message on August 15, 2014 that her reservation was canceled because of... More

It was a hit !!! We had friends and family all around. At an exciting race event that has gone on for 52 years. We used the Pool and hot tube after a cold day at the track. While visiting with friends at night at the bar where all have a great time.

This motel is owned by a family that is hugely into snowmobile racing. The facility represents their pride in the whole north woods experience. Every single other motel in the immediate area is vastly inferior. In fact, some are almost uninhabitable. As for the Derby Inn it is quiet and clean and has been diligently updated several times. The owners... More

Stayed at this property in mid Jan and it's the nicest Best Western we've ever stayed at. Rooms are SUPER CLEAN, very modern décor, walk in shower, adequate in room lighting, comfortable bed and top quality linen. Lobby area is very large and gives a homey feel. Lobby and hallways are also VERY CLEAN. Would definitely recommend this to anyone... More

I travel over 50+ Hotel nights a year and my stay at the Eagle River, WI Best Western is overall the nicest Best Western that I've ever stayed at. The staff is friendly, beds are super comfortable, rooms are clean, pool is warm, hot tub is actually hot, and the breakfast selection is delicious. I highly recommend this hotel!

Nice, clean hotel with helpful and prompt staff. Comfortable beds, very clean rooms. Pool was clean and pretty large for hotel pool, nice hottub also. Only drawback was breakfast, just ok. Right on snowmobile trail.

Me and My wife like to go enjoy the northwoods, Eagle River is one of our favorite places to go. Have been coming to the Derby Inn for years and have never had a bad experience. Always clean and friendly, and a perfect location on the edge of town.

Well kept, well run hotel. Great staff, very clean rooms, good breakfast. Room fully appointed with fridge, micro wave, mini-coffee maker. Not a luxury hotel but meets all travelers needs and more. Didn't have time to use pool, but it looked well maintained.
