I have a second job out of town every other weekend (PRN). It requires a hotel stay, can the hotel expense be deducted on my taxes?

the job is 2.5 hrs travel time from my home.

Yes, if you are an employee, you have to itemize on Schedule A and report it as an unreimbursed employee expense on form 2106, see instructions below.  This means that your Schedule A expenses need to total more than the Standard Deduction.  See below for how to do this.  

If you are self-employed (receive a 1099-MISC), include them as travel expenses under self-employed income and expenses.
