living expenses

My wife works out of town during the week and the most cost effective way was to rent a short term property, as living in a hotel is far to expensive.
Our primary residence is 4 hours away from her job-site and impossible to there and back everyday, which would been 8 hours round trip.

She does not receive a living expense for this rental can that be claimed as a deduction?
