    It's home from home

    It's home from home.

    Does the sentence mean a hotel or something feels like home? Thank you in advance.

    Re: It's home from home

    The expression is "a home away from home" and it's anyplace you feel happy and content while you are traveling, so yes, a nice hotel could be your home away from home.

    Thanks, Rover, I didn't know that! (I assume the meaning is the same?)
