My husband and I stopped for one night at the Delta King as part of a 3 week tour of California. It was one of my husband’s favourite hotels and really felt like it took us back a bit in time.
The hotel is easy to find once you enter Old Sacramento – just look for the river! The valet parking is $18 a night which was the cheapest valet we paid for during our whole trip. The sights and shops of the old town are all within walking distance with a good selection of restaurants to choose from. It’s a real break away from the hustle and bustle of the main city.
After a casual walk around town we settled on the top deck of the bar for a drink and a game of cards. The view over the river was so beautiful and the service so great that we ended up not going out for dinner and stayed right where we were instead all night! The food was good and portion sizes were reasonable, and there was a nice selection of wine. We certainly made the most of the bar/restaurant and found it a real treat after arriving from an active 2 days in Yosemite. Breakfast was included and served downstairs in the restaurant. Service was again great and so was the food.
The thing to bear in mind with the Delta King is that although it doesn’t move, it is still a boat. For those with mobility issues getting on and around the boat could be hard however the staff are incredibly helpful and there is even a room located on the first floor that is recommended for those less able. The standard rooms are quite small however we knew to expect this and it wasn’t a problem. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and we loved the fact that we were staying in a cabin on a boat! Doorways are small and walkways around the edge of the rooms are too however again, this just adds to the fun of staying onboard.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others who want something a little different. It was perfect for a 1 night stay to break up our journey and we couldn’t have asked for more.
