Manchester United's upcoming matches will see them host Norwich, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Reading at Old Trafford and Rooney believes that the break from travelling will benefit them as they enter a crucial phase of the season.
"The day before away matches, we travel down and stay in a hotel," Rooney told United's official website.
"We prepare as normal for the game but, with home matches, we go to the hotel on the night before to have our dinner there and then stay over. We get up and prepare for the game but it's not much different in terms of preparation. However, having that home advantage is a great help to us. That's a real difference.
"When we play away, we finish the game and then are either flying back or getting the train or coach. With home matches, we finish the game and I can be back at my house within 40 minutes or something like that. So that's one big help as well.
"It's always nice to play at home so to have a few games there back-to-back is good."
United's next away match will be at the end of March when they travel to play Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
