Yup...idea of staying nearby is so that you can stay and wait for the players to exit the stadium and get autographs, take pictures with them and don't have to worry about jostling with the crowd to catch the train or bus.
3 days 2 nights is usually enough for watching a match and going for the tour. 1st day arrive, check in...explore the town, 2nd day explore the town and watch the match, 3rd day go for stadium tour.
There's a nearby factory outlet at the Lowry near Salford Quay where you can also visit Mediacity (BBC/ITV), all within walking distance to the stadium. If you have time can also visit the Etihad Stadium.
