    Historical Traveler Reviews Delta King Sacramento

    Great unique hotel


    Such a unique place to stay! we loved the stay. it was a great location for visiting downtown sacramento. the rooms were smaller than what appeared in the pictures but they were all differently decorated. Bathrooms were really large - especially loved the old style "water closet". would definitely stay there again. they had a really nice continental breakfast and a great bar for the evenings. no high speed internet but sometimes it's just nice to get away!

    OK For One Night


    Quite unique accomodations, so I rated it 'Above average'. Nautical theme. This riverboat was restored without engines and docked smack dab in the middle of Old Sacramento. Each small room is nicely decorated and the tile bathrooms are relatively large with old-fashioned claw tubs, brass fixtures and pedestal sinks.

    Please keep your expectations in check. This IS a boat and just as with all boats, the rooms are small. There is no internet service and local phone calls are $0.50 min. Service is 'folksy', but they do turn your bed down in the evening. Valet parking only. Restaurant is lovely and the best food in Old Sac. The Delta King is a popular venue for parties and events, so it can be noisy outside late in the evenings. The beds are generally comfortable, but because this is a boat, the floors pitch outward, so the beds lean a little, too.

    One very nice thing about this hotel is that the walls are soundproof, so you will not hear anything going on in other rooms.

    Great hotel for one night. I don't thing you would want to spend more time than that in Old Sac anyway.

    Best Boutique Hotel In Sacramento


    The charm of this historic riverboat is unbelievable. Renovated in the late 1980's, the boat is beautiful and well appointed. The restaurant is fantastic and it has a fairly extensive wine list which is moderately priced. Service was very good also, we had a friendly, polite and knowlegeable server named Channel. We loved the clam chowder and the creme brulee.

    The hotel rooms were tastefully decorated and the beds were VERY comfortable. Again the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Riverview rooms are additional but work the price. We will return on our next trip through California.

    Great for a Wedding


    It was kind of a last minute decision, but I had my wedding on the Delta King and was very happy with the service, the setup, the food, and even the price. Everything was presented up front, and there were no surprises and no pressure, so I was able to stay within my (very limited) budget. My guests all said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding, and I'd do it all over again (well, hopefully not!)

    Great Place to Stay


    On a recent visit to Sacramento Ca we stayed at the Delta King which is a sternwheeler on the Sacramento River. We loved the uniqueness of the accomodations as well as a staff that went out of there way to be helpful.

    This is also right in Old Town so we were able to see this area and enjoy all it had to offer.

    This is a Great Place To Stay


    My son is planning on attending UC Davis next year and we drove down this summer to tour the campus. We stayed at the Delta King at the recommendation of a neighbor who stayed there a couple of years earlier. This is going to be my Sacramento home away from home when my son is in college.

    The staff was very friendly starting with the valet, the front desk clerk and the restaurant. The restaurant had just started a new menu that had excellent variety but their portions are too large.

    I couldn't finish mine but with the help of my son....

    This boat is like no other hotel, we will be back!

    Loved It!


    Loved the entire experience, and the staterooms weren't nearly as small as we'd expected. If you book online, take paper proof of your request for a river view room, or you may not get one! Restaurant is very good, if pricey. Starters excellent, quantities huge! A wonderful hotel to end our holiday. Old Sacramento is a delight, too.

    The middle of the week are best


    My husband and I have been going to the Delta King on and off for the last 7 years. We have been treated well and the staff is lovely. The rooms are smaller that a standard hotel room but they really are charming.

    We do a fair bit of traveling since John retired but we enjoy going back to the Delta King. The restaurant is good. We like going during the week because there are no crowds. They have been very good to us.


    It was OK but nothing special


    My wife and I stayed at the Delta King during a trip to Sacramento. The rooms were small but OK for an overnight stay. The location was good but breakfast was a huge let down. Would I stay at the elta King again, probably not.

    Historic, but dishonest


    This is an interesting historic hotel. The rooms are small, but nice.

    My main complaint is they are dishonest. I paid $25 extra a night for a so-called "Riverside" room. But it was really a corner room facing the dock. Buyer beware--have them show you where the room is before accepting it and don't take any corner rooms if you paid extra.

    Valet parking is available for $12/night. They have a fun dinner theatre and a lounge.

    ... THE WORLD. California is the fifth-largest supplier of food in the world. We spotted many a sign supporting farmers and bemoaning water rations in the sunshine state. Also cows. Lots and lots of dairy cows. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't disappointed, it's just that...I thought California would be, oh I don't know, a bit more...California-ier? You know, like everyone would be dressed like this.

    To be completely honest, ...

    Day Eighteen: Snoozy Sacramento

    Today was relatively uneventful and routine. I breakfasted alone as Seb was still snoozing, and then I showered, fluffed around, did laundry and dozed on a lounge in the common room while I waited for it to wash/dry. An Australian girl I met yesterday (she was from Newcastle, what the hell!) recommended a place to stay out at Yosemite, so I looked up accommodation and rehashed my day trip plan into a potential three day stay. Seb ...
