We were on the road and booked this hotel from our phone. When we arrived we were greeted as if we were visiting old friends. The cookies were great and the room was better than we had expected. We had just stayed at three other Best Western hotels in Wisconsin and Canada and booked this because we had been happy... More

We look forward to our stay every year. We have nothing to complain about at this place. It's the best!! We meet my brother and his family at a cottage every year, and due to a shortage of accommodations, we stay at the Derby Inn. It's the best choice for a motel we've ever made. We especially enjoy the breakfast... More

This hotel was very clean and modern. We just stayed for one night but were very satisfied. The wifi worked just fine, which is important to us. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The price was good also.

Stayed one night at this Best Western on a pleasure trip. Friendly and helpful staff. Good room amenities and we liked the first floor room. Would stay again. Only one minus: noisy refrig in the room which I had to keep moving to silence.

Hotel and room seemed nice upon checking in. However, the room must have been still being remodeled, as little things that you expect were missing, and should of been replaced before allowing people to stay in the room. Very disappointed that the WIFI did not work in the room, only in the lobby. There is a bar in the hotel,... More

Value was okay for the price, wish breakfast was more like other best westerns i've been too, hot breakfast items such as waffles scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes etc. Everyone at hotel were friendly and helpful, except hard to get ahold of anyone during the second shift hours.

Over all a very nice stay . On the plus side the rooms were nice and updated. The negative was that there were no elevators. Would defiantly stay again if we could guarantee a first floor room. Would have been nice to see some donuts for the kids...after all this is vacation.

Our room was not fully cleaned when we arrived. Our room was not made up the following day. Management was somewhat accepting of this situation. Our friends traveling with us had good room service, and a clean room upon arriving.
