Within walking distance of Old Sac it was an enjoyable experience to re-live those by gone days.The staff was excellent and very accommodating. The restaurant and cocktail lounge was terrific. Entertainment during the evening in the lounge was so good I purchased their CD. The rooms are what you would expect, small and slanted floors, but a good night sleep.

We booked a couple of nights on this old gem, and it lived up to my expectations, The front desk staff were very good to deal with, the room we had was on the 4th level rear corner and was very well appointed considering that this boat is nearly 90 years old so don't expect first class suites etc, the...

If you are in Oakland, or any near by city, take Amtrak to Sacramento, get off the train and walk to Delta King! It's right on the waterfront-an old paddle boat. The rooms are small, quaint, but clean and well maintained. The water pressure is great, as are the bathroom amenities. If you are there during baseball season, on Fri/Sat... More

My 13-year old son and I spent one night at the Delta King. Great location, right on the dock adjacent to the fun shops, bars & restaurants of Old Town Sacramento, as well as the Railroad Museum. The room was cramped - big enough for the queen size bed and just enough room to walk around it. Restaurant was good,... More

...exceeded our expectations! What a unique, fun and comfy overnight stay. We rode Amtrak and arrived before checkin time, so asked if we could leave our luggage there while we toured the town and waited for checkin time. James, the front desk guy offered us a fantastic upgrade at a very small increase and we were giddey when we realized... More

Well, you don't quite roll, since the Delta King paddle boat is moored at the foot of Old Sacramento, but you do get a sense of what river travel might have been like from staying here. Our queen river-view room was compact but did not feel crowded.--also glacially air conditioned (appreciated given the heat). The bathroom was another story--about 30... More

My daughter and I had an overnight "Mom/Daughter Date" in Old Sacramento, about an hour from where we live. Our stay on the Delta King was awesome! The reception staff was friendly and the room was clean and nicely decorated, although the bathroom needs updating. We stayed in a Deluxe City View Room on the top level. We were on... More

Went there for lunch last month with business associate from out of town. She and I both loved it. We ate outside on the deck. Food and service were fantastic. I had been there for dinner but I may become a lunch regular.

When my colleague told me he’d booked us on a ferry boat for our one night stay in Sacramento, I was sure he was kidding. Not a bit of it. There it was, a floating hotel in a real paddle steamer. The rooms are a bit small, but who cares? It’s just one night, and you’re afloat. Everything else about... More
