Glasgow airport lodging

Will be dropping car off at Glasgow airport late morning of Sept. 27 and flying home the morning of the 29th. Am thinking an airport hotel might be best, but one where we can hop into town the first afternoon and the next day and be near airport for flight the next morning. Any suggestions as to hotel?

I would leave the car at the airport and then get into the city centre by the airport bus,only takes 15-20 minutes, get a hotel in the center and it is easy to get a taxi or airport bus back to the airport in the morning.

Indeed - don't waste two nights staying out at the airport. Catch the bus or a taxi back into town and enjoy a day and a half in Glasgow! Then taxi or bus out to the airport on day of departure.

If it was just one night, I'd recommend either the Holiday Inn or the Holiday Inn Express, both of which are literally walking distance to the terminal. The Express is not quite as nice as the Inn, but both are fine in my experience.

Since you have 2 nights, I tend to agree with the other comments that you'd be better off choosing a hotel or B&B in the city, near some location that interests you.

I recently did what you are proposing to do and found it worked out quite well to stay at the airport. We stayed at the Premier Inn, which is half a block from a stop for the express airport bus that goes into the center of Glasgow, and about a block from the airport terminal. After dropping off our car we got the express bus into Glasgow, which was a 20-30 minute ride, returned to the Premier Inn to spend the night, then got the bus into Glasgow again the next day. Since our flight left fairly early, we liked having the security of knowing we were just a five minute walk from the airport terminal.
