Be aware that there is no elevator to the second floor. However, receptionist offered to help to take luggage up the stairs. Breakfast met minimal expectations. Used the gym in nearby high school. Excellent facility!

This updated hotel is very inviting. The room was updated, clean and homey. There are some nice general sitting areas in the hotel to gather with friends and family. I would highly recommend this Best Western.

Our vacation was cut short so we were only able to stay here for one night which was too bad because the hotel was amazing. One of the cleanest I've stayed at in a long time. The bed was wonderful and the staff extremely helpful. Breakfast was average but a great way to start the day. I would absolutely stay... More

We having been vacationing in Eagle River for the past 25 years and always stay in the same delightful cottages on a lake. Our plans changed this year requiring us to stay near the cottages so we could still enjoy a trip up north with our extended family. The Derby Inn was the next best thing! We felt like family...

Rooms are beautiful! Breakfast is like a buffet and everything is very clean. The employees are very polite and helpful. The owner is very exceptional. Every time we go to Eagle River we will always stay at the Best Western Derby Inn.

We found the rooms to be extremely comfortable and quiet, which is very important to us. So many hotels poorly insulated and very noisy. The only negative was no walkable restaurants. After being on the motorcycle all day, it's nice to be able to walk to a local restaurant or have something attached so you don't have to go back... More

Very clean and orderly hotel, located just north of downtown Eagle River. We have stayed there a few times this year and the staff has been consistently courteous and attentive. Rooms are very well appointed and have been recently remodeled. Plenty of parking and nice snowmobile memorabilia in the lobby. Very comfortable beds.

Stayed at the Best Western last weekend with my husband and 9 month old. The hotel is super clean - our room was like new. There was a microwave and fridge in the room and plenty of speace to set up my son's pack and play. The hot breakfast was really good and they changed up the menu (but always... More

We've stayed at the Derby Inn for years. Until this recent trip, however, we hadn't been there in 2 years. Not that it wasn't nice before, but they did a wonderful job renovating the rooms. The bathrooms look great and the breakfast bar is amazing offering many tasty choices. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very helpful... More

Everything about this hotel is top quality and a very good value. My husband and I agreed that every hotel should be like this one! The rooms are set-up very well with a sink outside of the bath/toilet room. The towels are large and thick, the sink surround is granite and the beds are comfortable. There is good storage, a...
