For starters, hotels that show FoxNews in public areas are automatically disqualified from five-star reviews. This was one such hotel.
My wife and I chose Dutch Colony over the Super 8 because they were the same price as the Super 8 nearby and would rather support local businesses. We were in town for a wedding and made our reservations well in advance, but over the phone were greeted with a non-courteous and impatient receptionist. When I asked if I could have a confirmation number, s/he acted as though it was the most offensive thing to ask. I called the week of the stay to confirm my reservation and was treated similarly.
The service during the actual stay was not quite so bad and the rooms were okay.
The breakfast was simply bad.
All in all it was an okay, though quite lackluster, hotel. Not worth the price. I've stayed in smaller hotels, in smaller towns, for much smaller prices, and received much more.
