Welcome annvarkey! I noticed you posted another topic with a more specific plan for your stay in Switzerland, so we'll address those questions there.
Affordable hotels close to railway stations in Switzerland can be found here.
It's a bit hard to indicate a total budget, as costs depend on and vary by the hotels you pick, your exact travels costs and what you intend to spend on food and drinks (also discussed here).
