Can I deduct hotel expenses for a new job out of town

I moved 3 hours away from my house.  The first month of my job, I was staying in a hotel while I searched for an apartment to stay in, can I deduct this?  My employer would not pay and I did not use any hotel points, etc.

No, you can not. Personal living expenses are not deductible.
You can find what is and is not deductible as moving expenses in IRS Pub. 521, at this link:
