 for Inn
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Inn
     in the modern sense, unknown in the East. The khans or
     caravanserais, which correspond to the European inn, are not
     alluded to in the Old Testament. The "inn" mentioned in Ex. 4:24
     was just the halting-place of the caravan. In later times khans
     were erected for the accommodation of travellers. In Luke 2:7
     the word there so rendered denotes a place for loosing the
     beasts of their burdens. It is rendered "guest-chamber" in Mark
     14:14 and Luke 22:11. In Luke 10:34 the word so rendered is
     different. That inn had an "inn-keeper," who attended to the
     wants of travellers.
