If you're going to Machu Picchu, then odds are you'll have some downtime here. Take the time to walk around the town, and see some of the beautiful statues/artwork.
If you don't want to rough it and camp outside when visiting Machu Picchu, you don't really have many options as to where to stay...except in Aguas Calientes. Some people will tell you it's a hole; and although there isn't much there, considering where you are and what you're here for, it's really not all that bad. In fact, there are some decent restaurants and bakeries, and the accommodations are surprisingly nice compared to what I'd read about (and feared) before coming. It's nothing remotely close to the major metros of the world, but it is remote. Given that you'd likely only be here for Machu Picchu anyway (the town is here solely to cater to tourists), does it really matter?
The small town at the foot of Machu Picchu completely set up for tourists coming to visit the world famous site.
There's a thing as too touristy that is precisely what Aguas Calientes is. It lacks the charm of Cusco, but remains frenetically busy due to it being the stopping point to Machu Picchu. I got good deals in the markets here, but overall I was not impressed. It's not worth sticking around in. Other than the market, the only redeeming factor for me was the river area, which reminded me of the gorges and flumes of New Hampshire. I would've loved to see more of that beauty in the town itself.
