We recently stayed in room 424 for a short weekend trip to Oldtown Sacramento. The staff at the Delta King are gracious and helpful. The hotel is on a renovated riverboat and this should give you a clue as to the fact that this is not your usual hotel stay. Because this is a riverboat, very little conforms to current building codes as we know them. The doors are narrow, the ceilings are low and the floors slope in a variety of directions, probably due to the deck settling. None of this was a problem, just a note about the age of the boat! Our room was small but very clean and well-appointed. There is nothing fancy but there was a coffee maker, flat screen TV, and a bathroom that was almost as large as the room itself. The shower was definitely a highlight of the room, with brass fixtures and water pressure that made this Bay Area water conserving gal feel a bit indulgent.
As it was our anniversary, the hotel arranged for a delivery of one dozen roses which were waiting in our room on arrival. Additionally, full breakfast was included with the room. Breakfast was served in the Pilothouse Restaurant on the first deck. The food was good but not stupendous. The kitchen seemed a little overwhelmed so it took awhile for our breakfast to come out. However, our waitress was lovely and kept us in coffee and made sure to give us suggestions for places to visit during our stay.
Overall, it was a good stay and I would recommend it for someone looking for a good place to stay in Oldtown. It seemed to be particularly popular with train enthusiasts (lots of train talk during breakfast) since the railway museum is just a couple of blocks away.
