We enjoyed our stay at Best Western Derby Inn. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom. It was clean and the staff could not have been more friendly. I liked that the rooms were a little more modern too.

I would definitely go back. Friendly staff, clean and comfy rooms, yummy free breakfast, quiet, and their bath products were really good too, they were from bath and body works. The location of the hotel isn't bad either it's right outside of downtown so your not far from anything.

Easily my 10th stay at the Derby Inn. We always get a good rate, clean and comfortable room, plenty of breakfast choices, and a cordial welcome. Too bad I was there for just one night, but thanks for another great experience!

Hotel was very clean and quiet. Decent breakfast in the morning. Booked last minute and price was kind of high but that was expected. There is a nice pool which we didn't get. A chance to use but looked inviting.

We traveled up to Eagle River to drop our kids off at camp. I hadn't been up there in 35 years and Eagle River itself has changed a great deal. What was once a quaint little Wisconsin town is now a tourist haven. As with most tourist havens, there are always roadside motor hotels. The Derby Inn, however, is a... More

Nice clean hotel in the northwoods. Clean rooms, nice breakfast. Good location close to downtown and the airport and next door to the snowmobile track and local attractions. All the rooms are named after past Derby Champions, which adds an interesting touch of local history.

hotel was wonderful. Very clean, lovely setting, easy to find. Near good restraunts. Staff was very helpful.. As bikers, we are always concerned about parking our bikes under the shelter and they welcomed us to do that. Also gave us a bucket and rags to clean our bikes in the morning. We were there 3 years ago - and apparently... More

I am glad that they got you the bucket with rags to clean your bikes. Customer service is our top concern as we know without you we would not be open. Thank you for your kind words. Thank You Mary Hayden More

I enjoyed the hotel and the staff and amenities, including the pool & sauna. However, room 201 is over the pool/sauna so it is extremely hot in that room. There's a fan in the living room, but that doesn't help as the air conditioner is in the bedroom. It's a constant cycle, too cold because the air conditioner blows over... More

Great experience. Clean room, nice people, good internet, pool, and the breakfast was very good! Good value for the price I paid. If you have AAA...use it! I called the hotel and they matched the price of a site that was cheaper. I would recommend this hotel.

the staff was very friendly. The atmosphere of the hotel is lovely. Good beds. The hotel is very clean. The breakfast is a great value. This was my second stay here and would stay at the Derby Inn-Eagle River, WI every time.
