Although this Best Western was fine, it wasn't what I'm used to at a Best Western. The rooms were fine, but I think we could have done better or at least the same for less $. We also got the feeling that we were lucky to have them, whereas most of the BW's are more welcoming- maybe we caught them...

What a great experience at this hotel when we came up for a stay for a winter weekend. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms were updated and clean and in good working order. The temperature in the rooms regulated well and didn't leave you freezing or sweltering, the pool area was huge and well maintained and there...

We stay at the Derby Inn often and when we do it always feels like home! Staff is great and the rooms are impeccable! I would recommend anyone to stay at this hotel! Pirate ship right around the corner makes this place an A+!

Desk personel was wonderful. Breakfast was GREAT! Room was beautiful. I would definitely stay there again! The hotel is very up-to-date and was very comfortable. The location was great for my business stay as my presentations were just a few block away! Thanks to all the staff!

For a weekend escape we headed to Eagle River and stayed at the Best Western Derby Inn. We were there in between seasons so it was very quiet. The room was very clean and comfortable. The employees were nice and helpful. If we get back up in that area we would stay there again!

Our room was very clean. The decor made us feel like we were at home. The warm breakfast had a great selection and changed each day we were there. The pool and hot tub areas were also very clean. We will definitely stay here again.

Starting with the good: The hotel itself was very nice, the rooms were comfortable and very clean. I thoroughly bleach wipe hotel rooms when we check in, and I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room. The pool area was nice. The hotel is well maintained overall. The poor review is strictly for the customer service. During check in...

Great place with only one unfortunate disappointment- A front desk clerk with a bad attitude. Other than that, a very clean, warm inviting, accommodating hotel. Nice pool and great breakfast!! Great Northwoods atmosphere.
