2: πανδοχεῖον
(Strong's #3829 — Noun Neuter — pandocheion — pan-dokh-i'-on )

lit., "a place where all are received" (pas, "all," dechomai, "to receive"), denotes "a house for the reception of strangers," a caravanserai, translated "inn," in Luke 10:34 , in the parable of the good samaritan. Cattle and beasts of burden could be sheltered there, and this word must thereby be distinguished from No. 1. Cp. pandocheus in the next verse, "(the) host."
