Go a little more luxurious at The Waterloo Hotel for $112 and the Miloo Hotels. All of these hotels are close to the Imeretinskaya lowland of Adler district, which is the chosen venue of the Olympics within Sochi.
The tickets for the actual Olympic events range significantly. Each event is bought individually.

Some events will cost as low as $30, while others $1,500.
