I'm not sure how reasonably priced these are, but two hotels with the best views are the Hotel Marroad Narita, and the Holiday Inn Tobu. The Hilton Narita and the Tokyu Excel Hotel Narita are also close to the main runway, and may offer airline employee rates, if you are lucky (or unlucky!) enough to be one.
Enjoy your trip! Narita Airport has a fantastic observation deck and can keep you spotting away for hours!

you stay at the Marroad Hotel, ask for airport view room and it has a view of runway 34L 16R for the whole length, from there you can walk under 16L to sakura no yama park and photograph in the arvo.
all spotters go straight to the marroad, room rates are about $70AUD per night, forget the Holiday Inn Tobu, to expensive and the view of 34R is not worth the rate. get a room on the top floor at the marroad, Sam and I both had the 12th floor.

The viewing area at T1 is good! you get a good view of the main runway. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures while I was there but It gave a good view and it was outside with aircraft being serviced right below you. I saw my first A346 there, which belonged to VS, being serviced right below me.

simple solution, look where everyone else stays, Sam, Bailey, Andy Hunt, myself and so on, everyone that want's to take photo's at NRT stays at the Marroad, it's location is supreme and you can easily walk to the afternoon vantage points.
end of discussion, you asked for reasonably priced hotels with a view, this is the one we all stay at!
