“Easy and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Arriving by train, the Delta King is an easy 10 minute walk from the station to Old Sacramento where the boat is located. It is a unique place to stay, right on the river, in the heart of Old Town. We even had a big fireworks show outside our window after the ball game across the river. The breakfast was huge and tasty. Personnel were friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: Sorry, accidentally hit pool and fitness ....neither applies. A. Room right outside the desk is al...

If you are looking for a place to stay that's a bit different, the Delta King is great. It is a old paddle boat the has been renovated and is now a hotel. The history of this place is very interesting. The view of the river and surrounding area is beautiful. The rooms are small but very nice and cozy. Breakfast in the morning was included in our package and was really good. The dining room is very nice and we had a full cooked breakfast. The boat is on the river in Old Town Sacramento. We love just wandering around Old Town, in the shops and lots of good restaurants. We thought parking might be a problem but we found street parking that was free 8pm - 10am, it was just a few minutes from the boat. We would come back and stay again.

One of the most interesting places we have stayed & kinda takes one back in time with a look at how the late part of the 1800's lived. This is a top notch place with a great staff that does a great job. The food is good with a fairly good choice of menu. We are sure glad we didn't listen to the reviews of how small the rooms are because it just isn't true. We found them to be well appointed & quite large for being a boat. Location can not be beat & the breakfast is outstanding.

Room Tip: Stayed in 526. Its on the water side, top deck. It was a great choice as it is quieter than the dock...

This is a unique place to stay. It also had a great location. However, do not get room 422 (this is on the river side, but has one window that faces the stairs). We are also 2 floors above the Paddlewheel Room, and our room is shaking due to the disc jockey and his music- we are wondering just when the music will stop- we are not amused! It is not even a weekend, which we might understand. (I can't imagine how loud it must be if we were in room 322!). We did enjoy sitting out on the deck at a table which was just outside our room this evening.
They advertise that the Vallet parking is $18, but the guy who parked our car said it is $22. If you are looking for something different and unique, this is the place to stay, but, due to the very loud music, we would not return- it is not worth the extra $$$.

Small but serviceable room, directly opposite reception. River view. 97 degree days ( 41 ) so very happy for the efficient air-conditioning. Comfortable double bed, tiny bathroom. A little noisy with levels above and below you and people walking past outside on the deck, but so worth these little issues for the joy of staying on a restored paddle-steamer! How cool! Great bar and lots of spots to sit outside and watch the river traffic flow by...
Perfect location in the heart of Old Sac ( so endless dining and drinking and shopping options ). Also a leisurely stroll to The Petersen Automobile Museum and the wonderful Crocker Art Museum. We decided it was easier to pay the $22 valet parking rate per night than risk a fine parking in the surrounding streets ( ever present parking inspectors and strict $2 for 2 hours enforced )

Room Tip: River view is better than facing the dock

My husband and I decided on the delta king for a spur of the moment anniversary getaway. We were not disappointed. Previous reviewer in June indicated so many problems that we did not encounter. Problems should be addressed to staff and not complained about in a review. That being said, we were thoroughly happy with our room. This is a charming place to stay. Of course there may be challenges due to space, but that's part if the fun staying here. My husbanb had to duck a time or two, he's 6'5. But so what? Our room was on the street side and was actually very quiet. The bathroom had an old-fashioned pull chain toilet and pedestal sink. Shower a bit small. Floor could have been a bit cleaner. We booked our trip on Travelocity which gave us a better deal than the king itself. Included was a cooked to order breakfast which was very good. The waiter was phenomenal. Just wished I remembered his name so I could mention it here. All in all, u can't lose by staying here. It is right in old sac so it's the closest hotel so u have no need to get the car out of the parking garage

The Delta King was very close to Old Sacramento and within easy walking distance to all attractions. Unfortunately these are the only positive comments that can be made.

The experience in staying on the Delta King was not a pleasant one. This establishment may well be displaying original and authentic decor et.al. but it does not mean that it cannot be kept clean. The smell of the room was most unpleasant, the air was stale and the state of the room indicated that it had not been cleaned to a satisfactory standard for quite some time indeed the mattress must have been the original from 1927 and made for a most unsatisfactory nights sleep. The bathroom shower cubicle was not clean and in need of a good scrub to get rid of the mould this also applies to the shower door and sink. Having a bathroom door that closed properly would have also be an added advantage.

Breakfast was at best mediocre.

Room Tip: Find another establishment to stay at.
