I spent two nights aboard the Delta King with a group of 10 lady friends. We utilized all aspects of the hotel's services except for catering which we watched from a distance. Our husbands joined us on Saturday afternoon, and we attended the "Suspects" dinner mystery theatre. We arrived on Friday before check-in time, so we lunched and played cards...

My boyfriend and I have stayed here twice. Each time has been great! I just love the fact that the hotel is on the water and it is right on the strip of the night life in Old Sac. My boyfriend and I like to check in around 6pm and then go to dinner and hit the bars. This is...

Sacramento was the logical stopping point on our road trip. We'd stayed in several budget hotels in the area in the past and had been disappointed. I'm so glad I decided to spend a little more for this experience. And when I say experience, I mean experience. The ship is permanently docked, but it's still a ship, and info about...

The Delta King is an elegantly restored river boat, now a hotel and restaurant/bar moored on the river in Old Sacramento. We stayed three nights in this unique setting. The rooms are either river-side (highly recommended) or dock-side; most are small but adequate, others are large and quite roomy. The dining room and bar are wood-paneled, with pleasant views of...

The Delta King is a historical river boat on the Sacramento River in the heart of Old Town Sacramento. It is stationed there and does not move from its dock. The ambience takes you back in time. The woodwork throughout is beautifully restored and maintained. There are several historical photos to enjoy. Our room overlooked the town, while some overlook...

The Delta King was a working riverboat in the '20's and 30's. Rooms are small, but clean. It is located in the heart of Old Sacramento and one can walk to many nice restaurants and museums as well as downtown and the capitol. Views of the river are great, especially at night. Breakfast was great as well. Parking is expensive...

Rooms are very small, but still functional. Beds were comfortable and well-appointed. Right on the water and convenient for visiting Old Town. Pilot King restaurant on board is very good, but there are many good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Rooms are on three floors and can be either water side or dock side. You will hear things...

Goodness, what a beautiful boat - but wow, what a TINY bathroom, closet etc. I'm tall and it just didn't work. The restaurant was ok but not great. That said, for a romantic thing , I'll bet it works. Affordable for sure and loads of character

When travelling around from hotel to hotel you begin to tire of the sameness of the large chains. You begin to look for something that is unique or different such as the Wigwam Hotels on Route 66. The Delta King is such an experience - yes the rooms are small but that is part of the charm. It's the period...
