One more question while I'm here. We decided to stay in Huntersville for a few days this summer to look around and get a feel for the place. Can any of you kind people recommend a decent hotel there? Thanks.

Anything on Exit 25 is good. Last place on your list should be the Quality Inn.

Courtyard by Marriott and Sleep Inn get rave reviews from some of our friends when they come to town. I think Sleep Inn even offers free breakfast at Bob Evans.

Taking a CATS bus, which I do most of the time and highly recommend, will cut about 5 - 10 minutes off of that.

You can add about 10 - 15 minutes to those times for the Friday afternoon commute. The only way that commute would turn into an hour or more would be a very severe accident where multiple lanes are blocked. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a house in Birkdale and commute to uptown.
I totally agree except for the bus part... I pass the express bus every day on my way in to work and every day on my way home... I'd rather be in my own car and get home faster

Once again I agree with Charlotte agent Quality Inn is not quality in my opinion. Sleep Inn is ok but if you want to save a couple of bucks I like the Best Western on Exit 28. If you stay there be sure to book online it's like 64.00. It's clean the staff is very nice and they have a nice breakfast.

who me???? Nah, I know Huntersville is the doable area to uptown. It's living further north that will net you those 45 minute to 1 hour ride. The good thing is when you are on the express bus you really don't care

But I bet you don't get home as relaxed and stress-free as those riders do

You can use the extra time to get to the gas station to fill up again

oh all you bus lovers!

Actually, waiting for the bus would stress me out more. I'm a control freak...

And at one tank per week... I'll keep driving. Now, if light rail ever comes, I would probably change my tune... it will probably be faster.

Don't ask me to explain the logic of why I would take rail but not the bus... there isn't much, I can admit that much!!
