Still gotta do maintenance on it, power supplies, extra mass for items inside, etc. Those cost resources and time to do.
I think if you can afford to have a holodeck and have it running, then you can afford the maintaince.
Quark did seem to have a hard time keeping his holodecks up and running though. But he did have a far better safety track record than Federation ones... I think Quark should have gone into holodeck salesman for the Federation.
