We loved the feel of actually being on the Delta.Our room was clean and quiet.IRooms upstairs may be hard to get to if you have any issues with walking and stairs, also may be too small if handicaped. Staff was very friendly..Loved the claw foot bath tub.Next time we will stay on the King, bring our bicycles and take the trail up to Folsom.The restaurant food was excellent and priced fair.. we enjoyed a great salad on the deck, it was a better experience than other eating places in Old Sac.

Four friends shared two rooms on deck 5 and had a fine time. Beds are comfy. The floor slants some so prepare to climb with walking sticks to the toilet if you get up in the night. Just kidding, but you'll definitely notice the slant. Don't expect a plethora of outlets.
The staff was great, couldn't have been better. Valet parking was much appreciated. Bkfast was quite good: eggs, bkfast meats, potatoes, fruit--like that, all good. Service good too.
Riverside rooms and outside seating areas are more scenic, altho on hot summer afternoons it's the city-side rooms that get the shaded outdoor tables and chairs.

I have stayed there many times and really like the Delta King for a number of reasons, chiefly among them is the bar and restaurant which you must visit if you stay on the boat permanently docked in Old Sacramento. Be absolutely sure to make time to stroll right into Old Sacramento which is truly an amazing spectacle itself. That close proximity to the amazing restaurants and such is a main selling point to staying on the DK (Delta King) and staff are friendly and professional. Late checkout is never a problem when asked for in advanced (I always ask for that)..
The rooms come in a variety of sizes and amenities. Some rooms are smallish and if you get a 2nd floor room they will be short as well with low ceilings (I'm 6'4" and had to duck to go to bathroom), so when you book a room be SURE to ask for 3rd floor if you are tall. Also they have a few suites which are booked for when they host weddings etc., or just a super nice weekend for those who secure it in advance... those rooms are in demand I'm told.
The breakfast is excellent and everywhere you go on the boat, you really get the feeling of what it must have been like to float with her down the river with gamblers, ruffians, and business people on their way to San Francisco or Stockton a hundred years ago. Be sure also to take a little hike to the top deck and catch a view of the Tower Bridge and a bit of a bird's-eye of Old Sacramento... You'll be glad you did!!

Room Tip: If you are tall, get a 3rd floor room or a suite, because all others have rather low ceilings (you will have to duck!)

Experience staying on a refurbished historic steam boat which is permanently docked in Old Time Sacramento. The rooms including the bathrooms are teeny tiny and could use some updating. So if you're big or tall keep this in mind. I believe they have larger suites. So, it may be with paying extra for more space and comfort. Best part aside from being on a boat on the river. There's a restaurant on board called "The Pilot House" which has very good food. Plus, there's a separate very cool bar at the bow of the boat. We enjoyed some after dinner drinks while listening to live music! The only downfall is that there is only valet parking. In the morning of our departure we had to wait about 25 mins for our car to be retrieved by the one and only. Valet person running to retrieve cars for multiple people waiting in line to leave. The only other disappointment the over abundance of tourist trap stores. Do they really need 3 candy stores within 2 blks? All in all a fun experience for these repeat customers.

Stayed at the Delta King on 1/31/14. First of all, I Facebook messaged a question about parking ahead of time and the staff actually responded, which was awesome. Use the valet parking, it's cheaper than the park it yourself options around Old Sac.

Check in was easy and they price-met my other room when I needed to book a room for my son and his friend at the last minute. Rooms weren't huge, but if you expected them to be on a boat, you're delusional. Bed was comfortable, excellent coffee was in the room, they had turndown service, good TV, etc.

The only complaint was room temperature. My room was a little too warm and we kept opening the door and my son's room got very, very cold in the night and he and his friend were really uncomfortable the whole night. Apparently there is a thermostat, but it's hidden in the armoire. Something odd like that should be in their welcome speech at the front desk, because other people we ran in to complained about the same thing.

The location, of course, is perfection.

The included breakfast was really excellent (make sure you tip well) and the service was wonderful. Truly, except for the room temperature (which, if we went back, wouldn't be an issue next time), it was fabulous!
