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.

Staying at/on the Delta King is a unique experience, and will remind a traveler to the throw back days of the riverboat. The rooms are small, but that would be expected from rooms of 100+ years ago, before all the amenities. The room has all the basic comforts that you would need, and a large bathroom, with shower only. The... More

Staying on the Delta King was a wonderful experience and rounded off our trip to California perfectly. The old riverboat has been beautifully restored and provides high quality accommodation at a relatively modest price. Our river view room was spacious and well appointed; there was even a table and chairs on the deck outside our door. The breakfast was good... More

Spent two nights aboard the Delta King Riverboat and it was extremely interesting but it lacked the amenities of a land based hotel. The HVAC was poor which resulted in a hot stuffy night. The breakfast however was exceptional. If you like history and are willing to accept the challenge go ahead and stay on Delta King as it is... More

The wonderful staff and the service really made our hotel stay extremely pleasant. It was very convenient staying in the center of Old Towne Sacramento. The room and bathroom are small but fine for one night. The included breakfast was a nice touch and good quality. Also the valet parking is reasonably priced, you pay for a true 24 hour... More

Staying on the Delta King was a great experience. Mind you, the stateroom is SMALL but it has everything you need. I would not want to stay on the Delta King if I had to get dressed to impress for an event or even for business due to small accommodations and lack of storage for make-up, hair-care items, storage, etc....
