Albany-- It's been a roller coaster ride, not only for Florida evacuees, but for Albany hotels. Floridians who feel Hurricane Ivan will not visit their hometown are checking out earlier than expected.

Most Dougherty County hotels were booked starting today, but rooms are opening up again.

Hotels, like the Best Western, are busy getting calls from Floridians canceling and booking. "Now we have a lot of people calling in saying they are not coming to Albany, Georgia, because it doesn't look like the Hurricane is going to hit them," said Sales Director Luciana Jones. "We have people calling from Panama City and a couple from Tampa, just in case it does turn."

On Friday, the Best Western had plans to be booked Monday through Wednesday, but 30 people have canceled this morning.
