We like to go to Eagle River for snowmobiling and sometimes in the summer as well. We will not stay anywhere else except at Best Western! The staff are great! Whatever you need they will try there best to accommodate you! The hotel is very very clean! Very updated, very cozy and warm. It like a home away from home!...

Hotel well kept up, very pleasant décor, very friendly staff. Definitely would stay again. I was more than satisfied with my stay. The only negative for me was the bed was a little to soft for my liking.

My husband and I just returned from our 3 night stay at the Derby Inn. We had not been at this Best Western since our visit there six years ago. We were pleasantly surprised by the refurbished rooms, especially the remodeled bathrooms. Very elegant looking tub and shower and granite bathroom counter tops with new faucets. The lobby front desk...

Nice hotel for the location. There were other people's hair on the pillowcases, so I don't think the sheets were changed between guests. Also, the box spring is probably broken because there is quite a "dip" in the bed. This hotel is the nicest hotel in the town if not the whole area. I have stayed there often, but this...

Very friendly staff - great pool, extremely clean and very reasonable off-season rates. Feels very northwoods, great coffee for a continental breakfast; which itself was well presented. Great rooms for couples or families.
