There is only one hotel in the campus area.
Near the stadium, your only option is a hostel.
That leaves the airport area, which isn't that nice. You certainly can't get out and walk to restaurants, etc., especially after dark.
If Beale interests you, you might consdier staying downtown. You could walk around, taking in the music until late at night, before catching a cab to the airport the next morning.
From any of the areas you've suggested, you'd have to take a cab to Beale anyway, assuming you're not renting a car.
