This hotel is really nice and clean. It has a very nice snowmobile themed entrance and meeting area. The hotel staff is friendly and accommodating. The pool area was our favorite it was clean and had a relaxed feel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

My daughter and I stayed here 2 weeks ago when we were in Eagle River for a hockey tournament. I did have a little glitch at check in - they didn't have me registered for both Friday and Saturday but they had rooms available so it wasn't a problem. You may want to re-confirm your reservation to avoid this. The... More

We always stay here when we are in Eagle River. We love this hotel, the 24 hour pool and their beds and pillows are very comfortable. Breakfast is their weakness because of offerings and maintaining the breakfast bar.

This was by far one of the best hotels I've stayed throughout the years staying at a Best Western. Front desk was a pleasure to work with, right on target with my needs. Rooms and décor a plus, better selection of breakfast items then most hotels. Kudos' to you all! Great job! Love the stay there, I hope all the... More

Fabulous location right on snowmobile trail - great breakfast and many jacuzzi suites! Impressed by the decor of the hotel and the fact that they are making the effort and spending the money to make the hotel ADA compliant.

We love this hotel! We come up 3 to 6 times every winter to snowmobile and only stay here. We have stayed at other hotels in the area and we will never stay anywhere else again! Our friends now stay here too when they come up with us. Mary and the rest of the hotel staff are great! The rooms... More

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
