Another angle is, since it sounds like you like your current company but the main issue is the commute and the lure of increased salary, why not open up a discussion with your current employer to see if you could telework from home a couple days a week and discuss compensation (at the very least for your next annual review) since it might be that "market" rate has increased in the area for your skills? IMO this is the perfect time to open a discussion with whom ever is the decision maker you report to to say "I've been approached by another company (you don't even had to say it's with a client) with a position, and I really like working here but the 2 areas that even have me considering the position are.....".
