We stayed at the Derby Inn for a second year in a row when picking up our child from a nearby camp and were just as pleased this year. The breakfast has plenty of choices and is well-stocked. The room is clean. The staff are very friendly and always greet you when they see you. My only complaint is that... More

Booked for one night and extended to two nights. We liked that it was clean , rooms roomy and comfortable, microwave and refrigerator and manager nice and helpful. The breakfast was good. Sausage, two types of eggs and waffles plus. Good coffee.

We had a good visit for one night at this hotel. Our daughters, ages 11 & 13, enjoyed the pool. We ate at the Pub, and food was good. Service was a bit slow. We had to call the front desk to find out how the A/C worked, and then were comfortable.

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.

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
