The Delta King has so much character and is lovingly maintained. Note that rooms vary in shapes and sizes so its worth making sure you get one you like. Also, Sacramento can get quite hot during the summer and the AC has trouble keeping up. The front desk and restaurant staff were excellent, and the bar staff was very good... More

It was our first time staying at the Delta king. It was a very enjoyable stay. They have a restaurant and host a variety of functions, as well. Since it is located in old Sacramento, it is in walking distance of many attractions. We were visiting our daughter, and taking in a river cat's game. I would definitely recommend it.... More

When we arrived at the front desk to check in, I thought it was going to be a good experience, the guy seemed friendly, but after a few minutes the gentleman checking us in could not remember what he was doing or what room he was putting us in. We agreed on a room, he made the keys and we... More

My husband and I walked into the Delta King to ask about pricing for a last minute getaway. The desk agent was so amazing and kind and helped us out with a great deal (better than online!), we had an amazing stay, and loved the quaint atmosphere of staying on an old paddle boat. The next morning we had breakfast... More

Definitely old and a bit funky, but comfy beds and a delight to stay right on the river. Can't get a better location in Old Town Sacramento. Step off the boat and you're in Old Town. The California State Railway Museum is a short couple of blocks away and so are many choices for restaurants. A cool piece of history... More

My husband and I love to stay at historic inns and hotels. If your used to super-fancy hotels, this is not for you. If you like quirky, unusual and historic, then make your reservation now! I surprised my husband with an overnight stay on the Delta King. We both absolutely loved being on the river and so close to old... More

Stayed for 3 nights, found out from a staff member our room was 1 of the 2 smallest on board. Very small. (i'm 6'2',220lbs) front desk totally unconcerned about trying to get a larger room, i was willing to pay a difference. yet, I was still charged the same rate as a large room. HVAC not great, hot & stuffy... More

Very nice and peaceful, quaint and food reasonable and varied. Just sitting back and sipping a cold drink in the sun is relaxing. Staff fun and friendly, willing to mix up a drink that's not on menu :)

We stayed here while attending a wedding on the boat and were glad we did. It's charming and lovely to be out on the river with the seals and the ducks. Some won't care for it - the rooms are smallish and old - charming to me but not to everyone. You will have to walk from the street, and... More

Great place for a drink, a small bite or full meal. Wonderful views of the Sacramento River. In or outside seating. Great service. Great place to take out of town visitors. Light options like their excellent salads too.
