Avoid the Charlotte Crowds and Stay in Concord
Book a room or suite
at the Country Inn & Suites, Concord (Kannapolis) to avoid the city noise and still explore all the fun things to do in the Charlotte area. Venture downtown to tour the NASCAR Hall of Fame or attend a big concert or Carolina Panthers game at the Bank of America Stadium. If downtown crowds aren’t your cup of tea, stay on the outskirts with a day of shopping at Concord Mills or an exciting race at the Concord Speedway. Our location on I-85 also makes it simple to reach both the Concord Regional Airport (JQF) and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).
