BRISTOL, Va. -

With the storms rolling in from Hurricane Sandy, many hotels in our area are feeling the impact.

We called several hotels in the area; all of them told us the storm is affecting their reservations.

We learned many people were canceling because they did not want to travel during the bad weather. "Just this morning we've had 60 cancellations. We're a very business-oriented hotel, so it's going to greatly impact our revenue for the day," said Director of Sales, Keisha Gould.

We are also told hotels are expecting drop-ins to make up for part of their cancellations after the temperatures drop and the chance for snow rises.
