We stayed one night at the Delta King on a US road trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas, and were really looking forward to a quirky choice of accommodation. Great location in the heart of Old Sac - valet parking right outside meant we could dump the car easily before heading 'onboard'. Given a room at the end of... More

Sadly we only had one night onboard the Delta King as part of our road trip - we loved it and wished we'd time for another night. We stayed on the top deck in a riverview room, the room was lovely, and was more than big enough for us. We loved being able to open the door, and sit out... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Delta King and enjoyed the delicious food. friendly service, beautiful sunsets and especially the view of the river. Rooms are small like others have said, but if you know that going in, you see the charm of the old days, and it's fine. So convenient to all kinds of activities - the train museum,... More

The hotel is very charming, well located in Old Sacramento, near restaurants and bars. The rooms are quite good, although you are on a boat. The standard of the rooms is higher than the number of stars. Free internet, which is nice! The breakfast was fine, although the service statt always seemed a bit confused and stressed, nevertheless nice attention... More

The location is first class. The boat is close to first class. Accommodation is just fine, clean and comfortable. Restaurant is good but just short of 5 stars. Recommended.

We stayed there because we were going to the baseball game at the Rivercats Stadium and it was very convenient for that, we walked over the bridge and there we were. It cost about $12 for valet parking but if we would have parked in the parking structure it would have been $10 I think and not sure how much... More

Several of my friends and I met there, had dinner and spent the night. It was perfect! We live in various places throughout the Sacramento Valley and San Francisco Bay Area so we were looking for a really good place to get together. We really chose right! The bar (and grill) is gorgeous, the Pilothouse Restaurant divine, and the rooms... More

We chose the Delta King for a one-night stay where I met up with a friend because we wanted to be near downtown and Old Sacramento. The hotel is on the river (literally!) and right across the railroad tracks from Old Sacto. We paid extra for rooms on the river side, but that was really a waste of money, since... More

What a fun place! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We did the Suspects murder mystery dinner...great fun! The food is mediocre, but the entertainment makes up for that!!

The room was tiny as was the bathroom. There were lights on outside either side of the window so it seemed like daylight all night. The bathroom was so small that you hit the ceiling when using a hairdryer. The room was also not very clean and the linens were old and did not look clean at all..very spotted. When... More
