Nice unique experience.

The experience was truly unique and fun. The rooms are true to what you would expect on a river boat.

Room on Sacramento River

Posted Dec 30, 2017
Rooms are decent. They are rustic and could use a little sprucing up but overall good. The bed was comfortable and the staff was great. We had a nice visit. Dinner was awesome at the bar and grill.

the room was a little cramped,

Posted Dec 12, 2017
Pros: everyone was SOOOO kind and great. I don't think I have ever stayed at a hotel where the staff was so nice.
Cons: see above
Location: I liked the fact that the hotel was centrally located to everything. All was within walking distance.
The bed was too big for the room. Get rid of the foot board.

Some of the rooms can be tight but most are more than adequate. It may surprise you to know that our rooms tend to be 2-4 times larger than they were in the 1920's. And yes, we are fortunate to have some great staff.

Cute alternative to traditional chains

Friendly and quick checkin. Smallish rooms but comfortable beds. REALLY weak internet in room. If you want to get work done not the place for you, but otherwise id recommend. Walking distance to downtown

Hi Andy, we'll take a look at your internet comment. We recently upgraded the service and had been getting great WIFI reviews because of the 4 hot spots available on board. The rooms sizes do vary and we try to price them accordingly. Our deluxe rooms are very comfortable and many rooms have desks available.

Delta King stay

Posted Dec 2, 2017
Pros: The location was great
Cons: Open space for relaxing outside room
We found the Delta King to be a nice place to stay in Sacramento. It is right on the water in Old Town and convenient to see everything without having to drive. We choose the hotel because we had traveled on all the other Delta Queen ships, American, Mississippi and Delta Queen and wanted to complete the list with our stay on the Delta King. The only thing I feel is needed is some relaxation space where you can enjoy some quiet time outside your room. Since it is a hotel/wedding destination etc there is no public space left for just sitting.

So sorry you were unable to find a place to sit back and do nothing. There are a lot of things going on on the boat at any given time but had you asked me i would have referred you to the 4th and 5th decks where tables are available for hotel guests. There is also the Delta Bar & Grill but that can be very popular also.....great river views. Let me know the next time you are aboard and we'll see if we can't find a quiet sneaky spot for you.

A classic experience

Posted Dec 2, 2017
Fun stay and close to what an overnight trip from S.F. to Sacramento would have been like. Very helpful staff. Use the valet parking as the holiday free parking at the meters they told us was not true and I got a 42 dollar ticket for parking overnight.

Pros: It was clean and comfortable.
Cons: fix the door
Location: Very convenient to Old Sacramento and many restaurants and stores.
It was a very nice stay. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was nice. The only problem we had was that our door wouldn't open unless you banged on it. Otherwise the bar and restaurant were nice. The bartender Aaron was very nice and friendly. The customer service person Elvis was very nice and friendly. Overall nice stay.
