I recommend taking a two day training course, as you get enough experience of the place without staying too long. Three days is good too I guess, as you get to familiarise with your elephant even more. The place is quite easily reachable from Lampang or Chiang Mai, although it's on a highway so you will need a private car or will need to ask the bus to drop you there.
Accommodation is pretty basic, but it's part of the experience. We left a large tip to the guy who was coordinating the work but I kind of regret, as it didn't seem to be much appreciated.
