Is it best to stay in Cuzco or Ollantayambo, I want to visit the sacred valley and thought maybe staying in Ollantayambo might be cheaper and maybe nicer environment?

The schedule is on www.Perurail.com that has the departure and arrival times.

Ollantaytambo is very nice, warmer and lower than Cusco. You might want to split up your stay, since Cusco is also an interesting place.

Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu route (Aguas Calientes) also has more availability than Cusco (Poroy) to Machu Picchu.

I would stay in the Sacred Valley (perhaps Ollantaytambo) before Machu Picchu, then a few days in Cusco after. You will have a better time with altitude this way.
