My Moscow time has been limited to riding the bus around Шереметьево while waiting for the domestic connecting flight. One time I had to stay overnight, the hotel was only $400.

Please excuse my sarcasm.
Things change.

Rent in Moscow is incredibly cheap now, with a very wide selection. You can pick up a decent place for 35k, that's a one room and nearish to the center and close to the metro. A decent English teacher should be able to make that in a week or less. In usd, thats about 475$.

Other than that, there are apps like airbnb and cheap hotels. But not by the airport.
