I usually stay with different chains than Best Western but they are not located in the Eagle River area. The hotel is finishing up a very serious update at this time and it is likely to be done in time for Christmas. The room didn't feel like a hotel room but rather like a personal bedroom our suite. The bathroom... More

Have stayed at the Derby on several occasions and have always found it to be clean and they offer a nice breakfast. Staff is very friendly. Plenty of parking for boats or snowmobiles. Located right on main highway and close to town. A number of good restaurants are located nearby.

Nice and well maintained hotel. Bathrooms have been or are in the process of a remodel. Friendly staff. I was able to check in early. This hotel has a nice lobby and pool area. For a vacation stay summer or winter, or for business, this is a good place to stay.

Stayed for two nights in October with the bf while touring waterfalls, hiking and enjoying Eagle River. We had a nice suite with a hot tub and a very comfy, large bed. Breakfast was good, staff was friendly and accommodating.

Beautiful hotel. Immaculate,beautiful linens, upgraded soaps and lotions. Quiet and serene. It has a 24hour pool, very clean as well. Nice breakfast which they are upgrading in November along with breakfast area. Don't even bother with other hotels. This is the best. If you are staying a week ask for a weekly rate. It a substantial savings.

This a very nice hotel -- very clean. Very friendly staff. But, the breakfast left much to be desired. No hot items like many of the other B.W. hotels. Recommend going to the cafe across the road for a really good breakfast.
