The good: centrally located. Lots of great restaurants and bars in Old Sacramento, you can hit them up then walk back. The bad: This place is NOISY. Couldn't sleep. Also very dated. Could use a major refresh. Bed was not comfortable. Kitschy staying on a boat moored in Old Sacramento. Other than that, skip it and stay at the Holiday... More

The riverboat is beautifully restored. We had a river view room and it is tiny. The bed was very comfy (think that it was a Queen and took up about 85% of room). There was a TV, tiny bathroom with shower. Breakfast included in a beautifully restored dining area. You can walk to old Sacramento. Valet parking was pricey at... More

I can't believe this place is in operation. Not only did we not have water on two nights, when it came back, there was no hot water. The facility has no bottled water available either. Unless you need the nostalgia of staying on a once operable riverboat, stay elsewhere. The only saving grace was the service staff that tried their... More

This is a difficult review really because who doesn't want the Delta King to continue and to succeed. Great location, unique stay, in Old Town Sacramento... great history... so much going for it. The rooms are small but decent and taken care of acceptably ... the bigger one's and it's well worth going for something bigger are combined old rooms... More

We stayed here for one night during our journey from Yosemite to San Francisco. The Delta King itself was a unique hotel, we stayed on the top deck; we had a great view of the old town and the bridge, on the night before we went into town we decided to take the opportunity to enjoy the view and sit...

We had a wonderful time, overnight, at the Delta King. Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable. The Pilothouse Restaurant was made especially good with our server, David M., along with the food of course! An after dinner drink in the Delta Bar and Grill with server Cyrus, was the end to a perfect time. A great experience that has... More

Customer service is lacking the front desk clerks are rude and act if you are bothering them when you have a question. I went up to the desk to ask if there was a place to buy water. The response when I went to desk was WHAT Do you want?! Wifi password in room incorrect , small rooms and you... More

I enjoyed the experience. Keep in mind, this was once a functioning river boat and the rooms are small and don't have all the conveniences and space of a regular hotel. However, the view is spectacular and the location very convenient for visiting Old Town Sacramento. Lots of nearby restaurants, including the one on the riverboat.The breakfast was nice and... More

We were here for two nights, one of which was a major birthday. Due to my ineptness in booking the nights separately there was a problem with the room, but we ended up in the Captain's Cabin - not authentic but lots of space and great views of both the river and Old Sacramento. We ate in one night and... More

Parking is a problem, there is no parking for the hotel. On the day we arrived, there were no alternatives for parking. There was a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony going on in front of the hotel. The streets were all blocked off. When I called to ask for a suggestion of how to get to the hotel, I was told... More
