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

We live about an hour away and have visited the Delta King on day trips before, so when a special for the hotel came up we (me and hubby + another couple) decided to stay on a Friday night. Staff was wonderful (thanks so much Alex and Norman, and the valet staff), rooms were comfortable (we were on deck 5,... More

This was a spur of the moment trip. My daughter and grandson were returning to North Carolina from Reno, flying out of Sacramento. I thought it would be fun to meet them the night before their flight for a visit. When I looked online for someplace to stay I saw the Delta King listing. We were all so glad I... More

We just returned from a one night stay in the Captain's Quarters on the Delta King. This is the most unique hotel room I've ever stayed in. You walk to the top deck of the boat, and enter through unmarked double doors. There are no rooms abutting this suite, they are across the hallway. You will literally gasp when you... More

This little part of history is floating in old town Sacramento. Upgrades have been made for safety but much of the originality of the boat still remains. The bed was comfortable, room was large, views were amazing! The breakfast included was a full breakfast of eggs, meat, juice, coffee, potatoes, home made muffins. If the walls could talk! The staff... More

What a unique place to stay. It was our first times to Sacramento and it was so enjoyable. The staff on the boat were excellent especially the bar man who worked on a Wednesday and Thursday night - he was so in the right job. We stayed 3 nights and ate in the restaurant twice. The food was superb as... More

Arriving by train, the Delta King is an easy 10 minute walk from the station to Old Sacramento where the boat is located. It is a unique place to stay, right on the river, in the heart of Old Town. We even had a big fireworks show outside our window after the ball game across the river. The breakfast was... More

If you are looking for a place to stay that's a bit different, the Delta King is great. It is a old paddle boat the has been renovated and is now a hotel. The history of this place is very interesting. The view of the river and surrounding area is beautiful. The rooms are small but very nice and cozy.... More

One of the most interesting places we have stayed & kinda takes one back in time with a look at how the late part of the 1800's lived. This is a top notch place with a great staff that does a great job. The food is good with a fairly good choice of menu. We are sure glad we didn't... More
