Moving Expense - Duration of time for claiming lodging expenses

Hello All,

I have a quick question about the length of time would be considered reasonable for deducting lodging costs as a moving expense. The taxpayer is US Gmt employee moved for change in job location from one international (location A) to another (location C) via the US (location B). There was a one month gap between ending one job and starting the other and the taxpayer stayed in hotels for that month. While the USG does cover most of the moving expenses, the hotel expenses for the time between jobs are not. Would the entire months' lodging expenses be considered as a moving expense or just whatever lodging expenses would be incurred if it was a (hypothetical) direct trip point A to C travel?
