    If I start drilling with a unit that's a 6 hour drive from where I live, does the ARNG provide for a hotel room, cot, or some form of floorspace to sleepon for weekend drills?

    If you're on orders to be there, which you're probably not, they have to provide a hotel or something similar to that. Otherwise, you might have to stay at someone's house or at the armory, which means a cot.

    Why would you be driving 6 hours for drill? The guard is not supposed to make your drill station more than 50 miles away from your HOR unless you agree to incur all costs to drill there.
    there are times when the guard will want you to drill far away and they will provide food and a cot.

    No, they won't I have people in my unit who have a three hour drive, and have to pay for their own hotel, or sleep on a cot at the armory.
