The only place to stay when visiting Old Sacramento".

The hotel's staff was the source of numerous compliments by reviewers, who found them friendly, helpful and accommodating. One patron noted, "We immediately encountered great customer service at the valet and from an employee at the dock who saw us walking the boarding platform with our bags and immediately stopped to open the doors [and] offer assistance and directions. We found out later that she was a maid. Check-in was smooth".

Verified Guest from Corona, CA US rated Delta King 10 out of 10 on October 12, 2004
"Our night on the historic Delta King was a joy indeed. The Sacramento River provided a refreshing cool evening after a hot august day. The food at the Paddlewheel restaurant was excellent."
David from West Sacramento, CA US rated Delta King 9 out of 10 on August 17, 2004
"It was a great to sit on the river and watch the boats go by while enjoying an adult beverage from the lounge. Old town is steps off of the boat and it was easy to walk everywhere, The staterooms are very small, but comfortable. It was the center of the Jazz festival and I will gladly stay there again."
Joseph from Cover City, CA US rated Delta King 9 out of 10 on June 01, 2004
