Since I only live about 3 hours from Canaan, I would just drive when I went to visit there, but depending on your budget, I know there are a few hotels in the surrounding area of Waymart, such as a Comfort Inn in Lake Ariel, PA which I remember passing on my drive. I would also check what is available in Scranton, PA.

I would suggest arriving at 8am, there will be some waiting, but you want to make sure you get in before they do the 10am count on weekends, because then you would have to wait till almost 11am to get processed. Friday visits are normally less crowded and there is no 10am count. The visiting process itself is rather simple, just follow the dress code and you will be good to go. I have gone to Canaan 6 different times to visit and never had any issues. Just make sure you call ahead to see if they are on LockDown, and during the winter they do sometimes cancel visits due to the weather.
