Consider a vacation rental from sites like VRBO.COM (Vacation Rental By Owner) - which we've used several times, or Vacationrentals.com (which we've not used) or other similar such sites. Often such rentals (especially condos) are cheaper than all but the most fleabag hotels. Not only can such rentals be cheaper than hotels, but because they have kitchens, you can make your own meals and save even more money that way. Usually minimum stay is a week, but since you're already planning on 2 weeks it shouldn't be a problem to find one. Winter rates will be of course higher than summer rates (which are often VERY low) but it's still likely to be cheaper than most hotels, give you more room - and (as I already said) give you the option to cook your own meals.

I agree with LordBalfor, check out VRBO.com it has a ton of houses for rent right now, and for a good price.

We just rented a cabin in Payson a few weeks ago for $90/nt and it had 4 bedrooms, a huge deck with firepits, and tons of other amenities you would never get in a hotel, plus the people were very friendly and helped us find local activities and such.

Or look for an extended stay which would have a kitchenette also.

That's a reasonable alternative as well.

Yup.
We've used vacation rental websites for trips to Tucson (twice), Maui, Kauai and even the Cook Islands in the South Pacific and nowadays I generally don't even consider a hotel unless the trip is short (less than 7 days).

Yes, VRBO is nice and YES you can get a 4 bd for $90 a night. That's $1200 for two weeks or, as someone suggested you can find an extended stay, much closer to where you will be for about $225 a week. Hope you already discovered that since you didn't say when you were arriving!
